"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: Symptoms of Being Human
Author: Jeff Garvin
Publisher: Balzer + Bray, 352 Pages (February 2nd, 2016)
Add to: Goodreads
Order here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository, Amazon UK

Synopsis: The first thing you’re going to want to know about me is: Am I a boy, or am I a girl?

Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid. Some days Riley identifies as a boy, and others as a girl. The thing is . . . Riley isn’t exactly out yet. And between starting a new school and having a congressman father running for reelection in uber-conservative Orange County, the pressure—media and otherwise—is building up in Riley’s so-called “normal” life.

On the advice of a therapist, Riley starts an anonymous blog to vent those pent-up feelings and tell the truth of what it’s REALLY like to be a gender-fluid teenager. But just as Riley’s starting to settle in at school—even developing feelings for a mysterious outcast—the blog goes viral, and an unnamed commenter discovers Riley’s real identity, threatening exposure. Riley must make a choice: walk away from what the blog has created—a lifeline, new friends, a cause to believe in—or stand up, come out, and risk everything.

Title: Romancing the Nerd
Author: Leah Rae Miller
Publisher: Entangled: Teen, 352 Pages (February 2nd, 2016)
Add to: Goodreads
Order here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository, Amazon UK

Synopsis: Dan Garrett has become exactly what he hates—popular. Until recently, he was just another live-action role-playing (LARP) geek on the lowest run of the social ladder. Cue a massive growth spurt and an uncanny skill at taking three-point shots in basketball and voila…Mr. Popular. It’s definitely weird.

And the biggest drawback? Going from high school zero to basketball hero cost Dan the secret girl-of-his-dorky dreams.

A tuba-playing nerd with an eclectic fashion sense, Zelda Potts’s “Coolness” stat is about minus forty-two. Dan turning his back on her and the rest of nerd-dom was brutal enough, but when he humiliates her at school, Zelda decides it’s time for a little revenge—dork style. Nevermind that she used to have a crush on him. Nevermind that her plan could backfire big time.

It’s time to roll the dice…and hope like freakin’ hell she doesn’t lose her heart in the process.

Title: Steel & Bones (Steel & Bones #1)
Author: Jessica Sorensen
Publisher: (February 2016)
Add to: Goodreads
Order here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository, Amazon UK

NOTE: This is a "Adult/New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 18+

Synopsis: Everlasting beauty comes with a price…

Eighteen-year-old Alexa Belarose lives in a world overpowered by immortality and beauty. Humans are hunted by The Grim, and their body parts are sold to The Soulless to preserve immortality and perfection.

Alexa has survived for years by living in solitude, but during a search for food, The Grim capture her, then mysteriously let her go.

The Greysteles find Alexa on the verge of death and take her to the city of steel and bones to be healed. Half human, half machine, the Greysteles are considered unwanted by The Soulless and the city is part of the safe grounds.
While living in the city, Alexa discovers life isn’t just about being hunted. She becomes drawn to two friends; Everett who’s moody and mysterious, yet in rare moments charming, and Ollie who’s witty and down to earth, yet seems to be hiding something from Alexa.

But when The Grim unexpectedly enter the city, Alexa learns The Soulless have put a bounty on her and a choice must be made. Her freedom. Or the lives of the people she loves.
