Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating
I don’t normally do Waiting on Wednesday as I just freak out about wanting these books more. Plus it normally requires doing some research to find the books and the last thing I need is MORE books to obsess over.
But this week I’m already obsessing over a few books and I can’t stop thinking about them! So I thought I would do my first ever WoW.
When Jill finds a rusty sword tip on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued—and little expects it will transport her through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Will a dark enchantment, salty kisses, and a duel with an evil pirate captain leave her stranded in the eighteenth century forever?
Drawing on piratical lore and historical fact, Carrie Vaughn creates a vivid world of swaying masts and swelling seas, where blood magic overrules the laws of nature, romance is in the air, and death can come at the single slip of a sword.
Now it doesn’t come out until March 15th and that seems like FOREVER. It’s being published by HarperTeen. I would give my left kidney (or my right, it doesn’t much matter) for this book. Seriously. Just let me know if you have an ARC to trade and happen to need a kidney. Or something else would work too.
I LOVE the cover, but the description is just amazing! Time travel, pirates, romance… Yep, just my thing!
This next book comes out much sooner, on February 1st actually. I’m going to be doing an interview with the author as well as a giveaway of it so make sure you check it out January 31st. I’ve entered some giveaway’s for this book myself but I think I may cave in and buy this one (if the pocket book allows it, eeek!).
Lisa Tawn Bergren’s new YA series, River of Time, is romantic, historical fiction in which the plucky heroine doesn’t have to fear a vampire’s bite but must still fight for her life. In Waterfall, American teenager Gabi Betarrini accidently finds herself in sixteenth-century Italy . . . Knights. Swords. Horses. Armor. And Italian hotties. Most American teens want an Italian vacation, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds… until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the sixteenth-century—and in the middle of a fierce battle between knights bent on killing one another.
Time travel too, and hot Italian knights?! Yep, sounds delicious to me!
Okay, and while I’m at it I’ll throw in one more. It’s another one I’m DYING for!
Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.
There have been others before who’ve felt the Need, but they’re gone—erased from the memories of everyone whose lives they had touched. It’s as though they never existed. This is the fate that awaits Charlotte. But the last thing Charlotte wants to do is disappear, to be Forgotten. She wants to stay with her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend’s arms forever. She wishes she could just ignore the Need, but she can’t. And as everyone important in her life begins to slowly forget her, she has to decide if she’ll fight the Need in order to remain herself—no matter how dark the consequences.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover, but the description just makes it sound AMAZING! I’ve wanted it ever since I heard the description from Suzanne. She made it sound so amazing because she really ‘felt’ the story when she was writing it. I love it when I hear an author SO excited about the books they are writing! That means it’s going to be good, right?
This one releases June 21st, even further away! It’s being published by Balzer & Bray.
