Waiting on Wednesday #2

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week we're both featuring books that will be released next month. We're so excited we don't have to wait much longer to get these books in our hands!

Beth's Pick:

Rise of Nine - Pittacus Lore
Expected Publication - August 21st, 2012; HarperCollins

"Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.

Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others. . . .

I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more. Now we're looking for the others--including John.

But so are they."

I am undoubtedly awaiting the conclusion of this series. I Am Number Four was amazing. Power of six, couldn't even deal with how good that was! Rise of Nine?! I need this book NOW!!! I just wish they'll continue with the movies, however I heard they are not. :( -beth

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They caught me in New York--but I escaped.
I am Number Six.
They want to finish what they started.
But they'll have to fight us first.


 Kait's Pick -

Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh
Expected publication: August 28th, 2012

From Goodreads:
 Varen Nethers is trapped in a perilous dream world -- a treacherous and desolate realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life. Isobel Lanley, plagued by strange visions and haunted by the nightmares of Varen's creation, is the only one who can save him.
Isobel knows that her only hope lies within a Baltimore cemetery. There, in the early morning hours of Edgar Allan Poe's birthday, a mysterious stranger known as the "Poe Toaster" will make his annual homage at the legendary poet's grave.
Only the Poe Toaster holds the key to the way between worlds. But even greater dangers lie ahead for Isobel. An ancient evil, draped in veils of white, is watching, challenging her for Varen's affections. When Isobel finally finds Varen, he is no longer the quiet and brooding boy who once captivated her, but a dark force, powerful and malevolent.


This is the follow-up to one of my favorite reads of 2010, Nevermore. I've been waiting for this for so damn long, I can't believe it's almost here! If you haven't read Nevermore, you need to.

  8. I haven't read I am Number Four yet but I heard it's awesome. I saw the movie though and I liked it. People said it didn't do justice. I guess I'm kinda excited with Rise of Nine even though I haven't read the first book. LOL.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my WoW pick. Followed your blog. :)

    1. Nickie - I'm not sure why people bash the movie so much. Honestly, I loved the movie! No, it's not dead on to the book... but what Book-to-Movie ever is!? I would definitely read the book, and watch the movie!

  9. I need to get caught up on the Lorien Legacies. I read I Am Number Four and I loved it. I haven't read The Power of Six yet. Great picks for Waiting on Wednesday. Thanks for sharing!:)

  10. Ive already preordered The Rise of Nine :D
    Check out my Waiting on Wednesday

    1. We both just preordered today! We're beyond excited.

  11. Hmm, haven't read I Am Number Four or Nevermore yet, but I've heard lots of good things about them! Will have to read them soon! New follower, by the way. Thanks for sharing! :)

  13. Hi, and thanks for commenting on my WOW!! Much appreciated!

    These are both GREAT picks!! I've never heard of the first one, so I'm glad you guys featured it. As for the second one, it's got to be a TERRIFIC follow-up to "Nevermore", which I've heard so much about!!

    Thanks for picking these books!! : )
