"Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose of this weekly event is to spotlight a soon-to-be-released book that you are very much anticipating. "Waiting On" Wednesday will also give bloggers an opportunity to share ideas for our TBR lists.

   
Title: Shadowspell (Faeriewalker, #2)
Author: Jenna Black
Publisher: St. Martin's Press, 280 Pages (January 4th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: The Erlking and his pack of murderous minions have descended upon Avalon. The smoldering and deadly Erlking has his sights set on Dana and her rare Faeriewalker powers—but does he only seek to kill her, or does he have something much darker in mind?



Title: Famous
Author: Todd Strasser
Publisher: Simon & Schuster, 208 Pages (January 25th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: All Jamie Gordon wants to do is to take pictures of celebrities...and maybe to become famous herself. She's only fourteen, but already her pictures are sought after by fanzines and websites, and she's invited to all the best parties. And now she has the chance of a lifetime. She has been invited to spend a week with Willow Twine, taking pictures of the teen superstar's new chaste life. But when Jamie gets her hands on some sensational shots of Willow, she's suddenly in over her head. The pictures could make her career...and destroy Willow's. Everybody seems to want to get their hands on the photos, and Jamie has to decide what she really wants...and what she's willing to pay to get it.


Title: XVI
Author: Julia Karr
Publisher: Puffin/Speak, 272 Pages (January 6th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: In the year 2150, being a girl isn’t necessarily a good thing, especially when your sixteenth (read sex-teenth) birthday is fast approaching. That in itself would be enough to make anyone more than a little nuts, what with the tattoo and all – but Nina Oberon’s life has taken a definite turn for the worse. Her mother is brutally stabbed and left for dead. Before dying, she entrusts a secret book to Nina, telling her to deliver it to Nina's father. But, first Nina has to find him; since for fifteen years he's been officially dead. Complications arise when she rescues Sal, a mysterious, and ultra hot guy. He seems to like Nina, but also seems to know more about her father than he’s letting on. Then there’s that murderous ex-government agent who’s stalking her, and just happens to be her little sister’s dad."

Shadowspell - the sequel to Glimmerglass is one I really can't wait to read. I more then enjoyed Glimmerglass and I'm really looking forward to finding out more about the characters. As for the other two books in this week's WoW... Famous and XVI... from the covers to the synopsis, they both look and sound like must reads for 2011. I know I'm not alone in eagerly awaiting these titles....

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.
