Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My Waiting on Wednesday picks this week are
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi due to be released on November 15, 2011
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
Yet another dystopian themed book, this seems to be my new book addiction. I just can’t get enough of them! Shatter Me sounds like such an exciting book, I can’t wait to read it!! I love the intensity of her expression on the cover although I’m a little unsure about the dress, it feels a little too “wedding” to me. What do you think?
I’m also looking forward to reading Stolen Away by Alexandra Harvey which is due to be released on January 5, 2012.
|For seventeen years, Eloise Hart had no idea the world of Faery even existed. Now she has been abducted and trapped in the Rath of Lord Strahan, King of Faery. Strahan was only meant to rule for seven years, as Faery tradition dictates, and then give up his crown to another. But he won’t comply, and now chaos threatens both worlds.
The only one who can break his stranglehold on the Faery court is his wife. . . Eloise’s aunt Antonia. Using Eloise to lure Antonia, Strahan captures his wife, desperate to end the only threat to his reign. Now Eloise must become the rescuer. Together with her best friends Jo and Devin, she must forge alliances with other Fae, including a gorgeous protector named Lucas, and Strahan’s mysterious son, Eldric-who may or may not betray them.
I absolutely adore all things faery, so I definitely want to get my hands on this faery adventure early in the new year! I like this cover with the wings and whirly design. It sets the tone for a darkly magical read.
What amazing books are you anxiously waiting to read??
