Waiting on Wednesday (#69)


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

For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories.

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they’ve been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?

Expected publication: March 4th, 2014

Tanja's pick

Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom-all because of a foolish bargain struck by her father. And since birth, she has been in training to kill him.

With no choice but to fulfill her duty, Nyx resents her family for never trying to save her and hates herself for wanting to escape her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, Nyx abandons everything she's ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, destroy his enchanted castle, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people.

But Ignifex is not at all what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle-a shifting maze of magical rooms-enthralls her.

As Nyx searches for a way to free her homeland by uncovering Ignifex's secrets, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. Even if she could bring herself to love her sworn enemy, how can she refuse her duty to kill him? With time running out, Nyx must decide what is more important: the future of her kingdom, or the man she was never supposed to love.

Expected publication: January 28th, 2013

We'd love to see your picks so feel free to link them up.

Until the next time,

Broj komentara: 50:

  1. Cruel Beauty sounds amazing. I hope it's not a trilogy. I'd have to wait until all the books are out then, but I do love the sounds of Nyx!

    I've never heard of The Haven, but it sounds like someone isn't telling the truth. Hopefully that means they're not actually terminal.

    Great choices, Glass and Tanja! :)

  3. I already have Cruel Beauty on my must read list, but I hadn't heard of Haven. It sounds pretty cool, and I already have theories about what's really going on. Guess I'll have to read and find out if I'm right. :-) Thanks for sharing ladies, great picks!

    1. I though about requesting it but I wouldn't have time to read it so I gave up. Thanks Michelle :)

  5. I wend ahead and requested Cruel Beauty, my arc should already be on its way. I'm not a fan of retellings or anything, but this just looked so good. I really shouldn't have, I have far too many books, but I just couldn't help myself.

    1. Everyone say it's amazing. I though about requesting it as well, but I really don't enjoy retellings. I didn't want to gamble. I know the feeling :)

  6. I haven't heard of The Haven, but I did read Cruel Beauty and enjoyed it. I think it's going to be different from what a lot of readers may have expected, but in the best way possible. I certainly hope you enjoy it, Tanja!(:

  14. I can't wait to read this. I had The Haven as my WoW post way back in February 2013. At that time it was supposed to be released in April 2013. Everytime I look they push the date back farther and farther. Now it's March 4, 2014. Interesting. Thanks for sharing.
