“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release (or releases) that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My picks this week:
By: Sarah Beth Durst
Publisher: Margaret K McElderry Books
Release Date: September 11, 2012
In a desert land where serpents made of unbreakable glass fly through the sky and wolves made of only sand hunt within storms, Liyana is destined to be a vessel, to sacrifice herself so that her clan’s goddess can inhabit her body… but her goddess never comes.
Why I’m Waiting: Um, WOAH. This sounds amazing. Flying serpents made of glass? Wolves made of sand? And just look at that cover! SO gorgeous.
From What I Remember (cover not final)
By: Stacy Kramer & Valerie Thomas
Release Date: May 15, 2012
Tijuana WHAT? I should be putting the finishing touches on my valedictorian speech. Graduation is TODAY! And is this a wedding band on my finger??
It all started with Kylie’s laptop and a truck full of stolen electronics. Okay, it was kind of hot, the way she broke us out like some chick in an action movie. But now we’re stranded in Tijuana. With less than twenty-four hours before graduation. Awesome.
Saving Kylie Flores from herself is kind of a full-time occupation. Luckily, I, Will Bixby, was born for the job. And when I found out she was stuck in Mexico with dreamy Max Langston, sure, I agreed to bring their passports across the border – but there’s no reason to rush back home right away. This party is just getting started.
I just walked in on my boyfriend, Max Langston, canoodling with Kylie Flores, freak of the century. Still, I can’t completely hold it against him. He NEEDS me. It’s even clearer now. And I’m not giving him up without a fight.
Why I’m Waiting: I really like stories that are told from multiple points of view, and this one sounds like it could be crazy fun. I can’t wait to see what shenanigans these four manage to get up to.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
