Waiting on Wednesday (#18)

Hello. It's Wednesday and we're ready for another Waiting on Wednesday which is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and our task is to pick books that we can't wait to read. Here is what we have for you this week.

Glass' pick

Ashleigh's boyfriend, Kaleb, is about to leave for college, and Ashleigh is worried that he'll forget about her while he's away. So at a legendary end-of-summer pool party, Ashleigh's friends suggest she text him a picture of herself -- sans swimsuit -- to take with him. Before she can talk herself out of it, Ashleigh strides off to the bathroom, snaps a photo in the full-length mirror, and hits "send."

But when Kaleb and Ashleigh go through a bad breakup, Kaleb takes revenge by forwarding the text to his baseball team. Soon the photo has gone viral, attracting the attention of the school board, the local police, and the media. As her friends and family try to distance themselves from the scandal, Ashleigh feels completely alone -- until she meets Mack while serving her court-ordered community service. Not only does Mack offer a fresh chance at friendship, but he's the one person in town who received the text of Ashleigh's photo -- and didn't look.

Acclaimed author Jennifer Brown brings readers a gripping novel about honesty and betrayal, redemption and friendship, attraction and integrity, as Ashleigh finds that while a picture may be worth a thousand words . . . it doesn't always tell the whole story.

Expected publication: May 21st, 2013

Tanja's pick

There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.

Expected publication: January 10th, 2013

We both picked

The past few years have held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner could ever have anticipated. Yet from the dizzying highs of first love, to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she can no longer deny is that she was never meant to live a normal life.

Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seems like the best option, so she’s headed back to California - and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place.

As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfil her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal.

In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must decide her fate once and for all.

Expected publication: January 22nd, 2013

  24. I Really want to read Thousand Words! It seems like an amazing story!! Great picks!
    - Farah @ MajiBookshelf

  25. Yes, we do have the same pick! lol
    I can't wait to read it. We should probably read it together than, we haven't done that in a while..

  26. Some great picks Glass and Tanja! I hadn't even heard of Thousand Words but it sounds great, so I will definitely be adding it to my tbr! And I'm dying to read Boundless! Only a few months to go! :)

  27. Thanks girls!
    And Anatea of course! :)

  28. I love Jennifer Brown's Hate List. I've noticed on all her books her lettering are the same long and large but with different coloring. I knew it was a book by her without seeing her name. I really didn't think I would like the summary after she snapped a picture of herself naked but Mack sure saved the day with being a great guy XD
    I knew Unearthly was a trilogy but I have no idea how they are going to fit a war and conclusion to her romance in there. I honestly don't mind whether or not it was Christian or Tucker because they were both nice guys. First book I was leaning towards Tucker than second Christian. So I'm in a good place with that. Please end well!
    She’s Got Books on Her Mind

  29. Yes I love that book too! :) I can't wait to read all of her books now.
    Oh yes it's a trilogy and I can't wait for this one.
    Thanks for stopping by :)
