Waiting on Wednesday (#82)



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

How far will a good girl go for the bad boy she loves?

Laney Holt is a preacher’s daughter. A good girl. Her only goal was to get married, have babies, and live happily ever after, just like her parents. Only that didn’t happen. The two people closest to her betrayed her, and Laney’s dreams came crashing down. Now she’s left with an empty space she doesn’t know how to fill. Until she meets Jake Theopolis, a daredevil with a death wish who has heartbreaker written all over him.

Jake has no interest in thinking beyond the here and now. All he wants out of life is the next rush, the next “feel-good” thing to keep his mind off the pain of his past. His latest rush? Showing Laney there’s more to life than being a good girl—and that going bad can be so much fun. Her only concern now is how she can ever hope to satisfy the wild side of a boy like Jake. She’s looking forward to trying. And so is Jake.

Tanja's pick

For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.

  1. Stolen Songbird sounds like my kind of read! Those Strange Chemistry folks know how to pick them, I always want to read their books and I'm rarely disappointed by them. I can't believe I haven't read a M. Leighton book yet. This sounds like a good one to start with. Thanks for sharing these ladies! :-)

    1. They really do. I don't think they ever disappointed me. Thanks Lauren :)

  2. Oh, the first book is the sequel/companion to The WIld Ones! I remember it was really popular when it came out, but I still haven't read it. Though I have to say that the covers don't disappoint at all! I love it! As for Stolen Songbird, I like the diverse creatures in the mix, but everything I think about Trolls, I picture the stone people from Frozen. Yeah...I don't think this book would work for me, but I hope you enjoy it. Great picks!

    1. I haven't see Frozen, yet, so that helps me to picture these trolls quite differently. Thanks Aman :)

  3. Glass, I've vaguely heard of your pick, but I hope it's as steamy and sweet as its cover promises. As for Stolen Songbird, Tanja, I can't wait to read it myself. I have an ARC which I will hopefully tackle soon. Wonderful picks this week, ladies!(:

  6. Stolen Songbird is one I really want to read as well. It was actually a WoW of mine a few weeks back. I haven't heard of the other book but it's not really a genre I read much so that's prob. why.

  8. Such different picks, but both sound really good! I'm hit or miss with M. Leighton so I think I'll hang back and watch the reviews come in before picking this one up, Glass. I do love "preacher daughter" stories. They're usually the most wild of girls, lol! :)

    I enjoy fantasy, Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph were so very good, so this might work for me too, Tanja.

    Great picks, ladies! :)

  10. Stolen Songbird Tanja! I LOVED that one so much! I just read it recently and it blew me away, I'm already dying for the next one. I can't wait to see what you think! And I've heard great things about the M. Leighton series, so I really need to give those a try:) They look quite sexy!
