Waiting on Wednesday is a meme created by Breaking the Spine in which on Wednesdays you post a book that you are waiting to be released.

This week I’m featuring a book that looks very similar to The Maze Runner (which I read in 2014 and really enjoyed). Though, this isn’t like that trilogy. It sounds incredible!

the preyThe Prey by Tom Isbell
Series: The Hatchery #1
Publishing by: HarperTeen on January 20th 2015
Genre: Dystopia, Science Fiction, Young Adult
Pages: 416

A hot debut trilogy and a riveting story of survival, courage, and romance in a future where creating a master civilization is the only thing prized, no matter the method. After the Omega (the end of the end), 16 year old guys known as LTs discover their overseers are raising them not to be soldiers (lieutenants) as promised, but to be sold as bait because of their Less Than status and hunted for sport. They escape and join forces with a girls’ camp, the Sisters, who have been imprisoned and experimented on for the “good of the Republic,” by a government eager to use twins in their dark research. In their plight for freedom, these heroes must find the best in themselves to fight against the worst in their enemies.

Sounds awesome right?! Well, the reviews so far on Goodreads from those that received advanced copies are making me nervous! Hopefully it’s still worth the read! It sounds like something amazing that I’d really enjoy!

See you guys with my next anticipated book or next post!

A dare.

A dying wish.

Fate…

After years of loneliness, widowed Gabriella is ready to fill the void—as long as she doesn’t have to give her heart to another man.

Caleb’s screwed himself right into a dead-end existence. Faced with an ultimatum, he’s hell-bound on changing his reckless ways.

A chance meeting has these two instantly attracted to one another, but when their paths cross again—this time as professor and student—the roles reverse on Professor Edwards as Caleb teaches her how to feel again.

This sounds like a fantastic read! I feel like I might shed some tears! Plus the cover is lovely! Can’t wait to get my hands on this!

This week I’m featuring a BEAUTIFUL cover (what can I say, I’m a sucker for gorgeous covers)! This a debut novel and I’m excited see what this author has to offer us! The blurb sounds awesome!

Genre: Mystery, Contemporary, Young Adult

To fight her destiny as the missing heir to a powerful and dangerous secret society, sixteen-year-old Avery West must solve an ancient puzzle in a deadly race across Europe. Forbidden love and code-breaking, masked balls and explosions, destiny and dark secrets collide in this romantic thriller, in the vein of a YA DaVinci Code.

Avery West’s newfound family can shut down Prada at the Champs-Elysees when they want to shop in peace, and can just as easily order a bombing when they want to start a war. 

They are part of a powerful and dangerous secret society called the Circle of Twelve, and Avery is their missing heir. If they discover who she is, some of them will want to use her as a pawn. Some will want her dead. 

To thwart their plans, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the landmarks of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul and through a web of ancient legends and lies. And unless she can stay one step ahead of beautiful, volatile Stellan, who knows she’s more than she seems, and can decide whether to trust mysterious, magnetic Jack, she may be doomed after all.

See what I mean?! It sounds amazing!! Can’t wait to get my hands on this stunning book! :D

See y’all next year! ;)

Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen. Complete strangers since this morning.
He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.

This will be on everyone’s W.O.W. post. I mean come on, really!? IT’S COLLEEN HOOVER!!! I can’t really say much seeing as though I’ve only read one of her books and that was Slammed (which I ADORED by the way). But I’m definitely excited! I’m slowly becoming like everyone in owning all her books. At the point when I’ve made this post, I own 6 of her books (one being an e-book). This synopsis sounds sooo interesting and I need it NOW!

I haven’t read her trilogy: The Trylle trilogy yet, but I own all 3 and it’s definitely high up on my TBR pile! Why haven’t I read it yet? Haha, because too many books!!! :)

Bryn Aven is an outcast among the Kanin, the most powerful of the troll tribes.

Set apart by her heritage and her past, Bryn is a tracker who’s determined to become a respected part of her world. She has just one goal: become a member of the elite King’s Guard to protect the royal family. She’s not going to let anything stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss Ridley Dresden.

But all her plans for the future are put on hold when Konstantin– a fallen hero she once loved – begins kidnapping changelings. Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?

I REALLY like that she used the same type of cover design! I absolutely LOVE the Trylle trilogy covers and I’m so happy that this series will be similar. The cover is absolutely beautiful and it’s definitely what caught my eye in the first place! This book/series sounds incredibly interesting and definitely something I would love! I’m beyond excited to get my hands on this and especially put this on my bookshelf!

this shattered worldThis Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Series: Starbound #2
Publishing by: Disney-Hyperion on December 23th 2014
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Science Fiction, Young Adult
Pages: 390

The second installment in the epic Starbound trilogy introduces a new pair of star-crossed lovers on two sides of a bloody war.

Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.

Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet’s rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.

Rebellion is in Flynn’s blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.

Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

I really am sad that we won’t see more of Lilac and Tarver’s story. I need more to their story!!! That last 100 pages or so really messed with me! It’s been almost a year since I’ve read it and I still remember exactly what happened and what I was doing. However, I really am excited to see the next two characters! This world is just sooo interesting and can’t wait to see what happens next!!! :D

GUYS!!!!! IT’S ANOTHER JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT BOOK! :D :D :D I don’t know if you guys are excited as I am, but I’m FREAKING STOKED!!!!! :D :D

wickedWicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: A Wicked Saga #1
Publishing by: Self-Published on December 8th 2014

Pages: 300

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE LIKE NOW! I’m so stoked to see this world! On top of that it’s a paranormal new adult! :D NEW ADULT! She is QUEEN for steamy, swoon-worthy scenes!!!!! :D :D SOOOO EXCITED BEYOND WORDS!
