"Waiting On" Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday #1

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

This is the our first time participating in the "Waiting On" Wednesday event and we couldn't be more excited to showcase the books we can't wait to read[unless we actually were reading these books].

Kait's Pick

UnWholly by Neal Shusterman
Expected Publication: August 28th, 2012

From Goodreads:
Thanks to Connor, Lev, and Risa—and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp—people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished.

Cam is a product of unwinding; made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is a teen who does not technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam’s fate to become inextricably bound with the fates of Connor, Risa, and Lev, he’ll have to question humanity itself.

Rife with action and suspense, this riveting companion to the perennially popular Unwind challenges assumptions about where life begins and ends—and what it means to live.

I have been waiting for this book for so long I can't believe it's coming out in a little over a month. This is one of those books I will be running out to buy then turning off all forms of communication until I am finished reading it.

Beth's Pick

Tiger's Destiny
by Colleen Houck
Expected Publication
September 4th, 2012

From Goodreads:
With three of the goddess Durga's quests behind them, only one prophecy now stands in the way of Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan breaking the tiger's curse. But the trio's greatest challenge awaits them: A life-endangering pursuit in search of Durga's final gift, the Rope of Fire, on the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. It's a race against time--and the evil sorcerer Lokesh--in this eagerly anticipated fourth volume in the bestselling "Tiger's Curse" series, which pits good against evil, tests the bonds of love and loyalty, and finally reveals the tigers' true destinies once and for all.

Anyone who's read the Tiger's Curse series knows that these books are addicting. Colleen Houck leaves us breathless time and time again. I'm sure she won't disappoint with the fourth volume in this epic series.

What book are you dying to get your hands on?
