"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.



NEW COVER
 Title: The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)
Author: Rae Carson
Publisher: Greenwillow/HarperCollins, 432 Pages (September 20th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble,
The Book Depository

Synopsis: Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do.


Old Cover


Note: The cover has been changed for this one. I like the old one better. What do you guys think of the new cover vs. the old cover?

Title: The Power of Six (Lorien Legacies, #2)
Author: Pittacus Lore
Publisher: HarperCollins, 352 Pages (August 23rd 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble,
The Book Depository

Synopsis: I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.

Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us—if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another . . . but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio—and failed.

I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.

And I'm ready to fight.

Title: After Obsession
Author: Carrie Jones, Steven E. Wedel
Publisher: Bloomsburry, 320 Pages (September 13th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble,
The Book Depository

Synopsis: Aimee and Alan have secrets. Both teens have unusual pasts and abilities they prefer to keep hidden. But when they meet each other, in a cold Maine town, they can't stop their secrets from spilling out. Strange things have been happening lately, and they both feel that something-or someone- is haunting them. They're wrong. Despite their unusual history and powers, it's neither Aimee nor Alan who is truly haunted. It's Alan's cousin Courtney who, in a desperate plea to find her missing father, has invited a demon into her life-and into her body. Only together can Aimee and Alan exorcise the ghost. And they have to move quickly, before it devours not just Courtney but everything around her.


Filled with heart-pounding romance, paranormal activity, and rich teen characters to love-and introducing an exciting new YA voice, Steven Wedel-this novel is exactly what Carrie Jones fans have been waiting for. Meet your next obsession.

I'm excited for all three of these! Some great covers too. So many great books coming out and these are just a couple I'll be adding to my every growing wishlist! Who else is with me looking forward to these titles?

  1. The Girl of Fire and Thorns is amazing, I was blessed with receiving an ARC from the UK publishers. The cover was changed as the main character is actually curvy and the old cover didn't fit her description or the book really.

    After obsession looks amazing too, it is so on my MUST READ list. I haven't yet read I am Number Four, but should do soon!

  3. I do like the old cover for Girl of Fire and Thorns better (though I haven't read it yet, so I can't attest to whether or not it's appropriate for the book). But I do think the newer one looks a little too MG. But that's just me :)
