"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: Auracle

Add to: Goodreads
Pre-order here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: 16 year old Anna Rogan has a secret she's only shared with her best friend, Rei; she can astrally project out of her body, allowing her spirit to explore the world and the far reaches of the universe.

When there's a fatal accident and her classmate Taylor takes over Anna's body, what was an exhilarating distraction from her repressive home life threatens to become a permanent state. Faced with a future trapped in another dimension, Anna turns to Rei for help. Now the two of them must find a way to get Anna back into her body and stop Taylor from accusing an innocent friend of murder. Together Anna and Rei form a plan but it doesn't take into account the deeper feelings that are beginning to grow between them.

Title: Such a Rush

Synopsis: A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.

High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.   

But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.

Title: The City's Son (The Skyscraper Throne, #1)
Author: Tom Pollock
Publisher: Flux, 480 Pages (September 8th, 2012)
Add to: Goodreads
Pre-order here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: Running from her traitorous best friend and her estranged father, graffiti artist Beth Bradley is looking for sanctuary. What she finds is Urchin, the ragged and cocky crown prince of London's mystical underworld. Urchin opens Beth's eyes to the city she's never truly seen-where vast spiders crawl telephone wires seeking voices to steal, railwraiths escape their tethers, and statues conceal an ancient priesthood robed in bronze.

But it all teeters on the brink of destruction. Amid rumors that Urchin's goddess mother will soon return from her 15-year exile, Reach, a malign god of urban decay, wants the young prince dead. Helping Urchin raise an alleyway army to reclaim his skyscraper throne, Beth soon forgets her old life. But when her best friend is captured, Beth must choose between this wondrous existence and the life she left behind.

And for today's WoW I have another three books that I'm really excited to read. And for two of them, I MIGHT have already. Thankfully I have both Aracle and Such a Rush here, so keep an eye out for those reviews soon. The City's Son was a brand new find... well new when I was working on this post awhile ago. The cover caught my eye and I'm always looking for a book that's set in England, which makes this one perfect! So, what are your thoughts?

*covers are always subject to change.

  1. Probably you already know it, but you can request a for The City's Son at Netgalley.

    I stumbled on a contest to win a signed ARC of Auracle as well as some swag and a necklace, here's the link: http://storybookescape.blogspot.it/2012/06/huge-giveaway-and-review-for-auracle-by.html

  2. The City's Son is on my TBR! They had copies at BEA but I missed out on snagging a copy unfortunately, Publisher Weekly had it listed as one of the most anticipated YAs at the show. Hopefully it's as good as it sounds.

    My WoW

  3. I was lucky enough to pick up Citys Son at ALA and I'm excited to read it :)

  4. I am so mad that I didn't nab a copy of The City's Son when I had a chance! I have heard so many good things about it, and I met the author and he made me want to read it so much more! He is really funny and we might have made him say "Twitter' more than once.

  5. Great choice, I'm definitely anticipating Auracle! :D

  6. All These books sound great but the City's Son is catching my eye too. Great picks this week.
