Waiting on Wednesday (#65)


You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass' pick

Life. Death. And...Love?

Emma would give anything to talk to her mother one last time. Tell her about her slipping grades, her anger with her stepfather, and the boy with the bad reputation who might be the only one Emma can be herself with.

But Emma can't tell her mother anything. Because her mother is brain-dead and being kept alive by machines for the baby growing inside her.

Meeting bad-boy Caleb Harrison wouldn't have interested Old Emma. But New Emma-the one who exists in a fog of grief, who no longer cares about school, whose only social outlet is her best friend Olivia-New Emma is startled by the connection she and Caleb forge.

Feeling her own heart beat again wakes Emma from the grief that has grayed her existence. Is there hope for life after death-and maybe, for love?

Tanja's pick

Meet Meda. She eats people.

Well, technically, she eats their soul. But she totally promises to only go for people who deserve it. She’s special. It’s not her fault she enjoys it. She can’t help being a bad guy. Besides, what else can she do? Her mother was killed and it’s not like there are any other “soul-eaters” around to show her how to be different. That is, until the three men in suits show up.

They can do what she can do. They’re like her. Meda might finally have a chance to figure out what she is. The problem? They kind of want to kill her. Before they get the chance Meda is rescued by crusaders, members of an elite group dedicated to wiping out Meda’s kind. This is her chance! Play along with the “good guys” and she’ll finally figure out what, exactly, her ‘kind’ is.

Be careful what you wish for. Playing capture the flag with her mortal enemies, babysitting a teenage boy with a hero complex, and trying to keep one step ahead of a too-clever girl are bad enough. But the Hunger is gaining on her.

The more she learns, the worse it gets. And when Meda uncovers a shocking secret about her mother, her past, and her destiny… she may finally give into it.

  9. Glass, I'm really excited for Heartbeat myself! It sounds really good and I've been hearing really good things about it. Tanja, I haven't heard of your pick before, but I really like the cover and it sounds really good, so thanks for putting that one on my radar. Great picks, ladies!(:

  14. Ooooo Cracked sounds so good Tanja! I've never heard of it before, but that first line has me intrigued. They sure know how to get a reader's attention! Plus that cover is gorgeous:) I'm excited for Heart Beat too because, well, bad boy. That is all.

  15. Although I wasn't thrilled with another Elizabeth Scott book I read, Heart Beat sounds really good! I haven't heard of Cracked before, but I'm kind of intrigued by the summary. Great picks this week, ladies!

  17. Glass: Oh, I've never heard of this one, and the synopsis alone already makes me heart clench for Emma. The only thing that makes me a bit anxious is that bad boy. I've got nothing against them, really, but based on past experiences, I'd just rather keep my distance, heh. I hope he doesn't turn out to be one of those cliche ones who treat their women like crap! Thanks for putting this one on my radar, Glass. :)

    Tanja: Yes! Definitely keeping an eye on this one. I mean, I can already feel Meda's overall voice -- snarky, sarcastic, and totally hilarious. But I haven't been having the best of luck with Strange Chemistry's books, though, so hopefully I'll end up enjoying this one if I get the chance to read it. I do love soul-eaters -- they're so fascinating!

    Great picks, both of you!

  21. These are both new to me! I've heard Elizabeth Scott's book usually pack quite an emotional punch. That one definitely sounds like there is a lot of heart break going on. Thanks for stopping by!

  23. I really like the sound of both of these! Heartbeat has such a great cover. It's probably not my usual sort of contemporary, but I'm feeling strangely in the mood for something like that. I love the concept behind Cracked. Great picks! :)

  29. Wow, great picks, ladies! Heartbeat sounds like it could be super angsty or super emotional. And I LOVE the idea of a Medea retelling! Off to GoodReads I go.

  31. I've never herd of Cracked -- and holy cow, that blurb got me. She eats people's souls! Yes please!

    I'm really looking forward to Heartbeat, but I was disappointed with the cover reveal. I thought it was going to be epic since the cover was blue for so long (they sent the ARCs with plain blue covers I believe). My expectations, I think, were too high. I do like it, just not IN love with it.

    OdgovoriIzbriši
    Odgovori
    1. I thought the same ;)
      I loved that blue too, so yeah I was also a bit disappointed by this. It's okay I guess :)

      Izbriši
  32. Oh I have Heartbeat for review! I love that cover for it too! Cracked looks really awesome too! Definitely keeping my eye out for it!
