Waiting On Wednesday: Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

This week’s selection is:

Book: Not a Drop to Drink

Authors: Mindy McGinnis

Release Date: September 24th, 2013

Goodreads | Amazon| B&N

Book Description:

Regret was for people with nothing to defend, people who had no water.

Lynn knows every threat to her pond: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and, most importantly, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty, or doesn’t leave at all.

Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. Having a life means dedicating it to survival, and the constant work of gathering wood and water. Having a pond requires the fortitude to protect it, something Mother taught her well during their quiet hours on the rooftop, rifles in hand.

But wisps of smoke on the horizon mean one thing: strangers. The mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it….

With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, debut author Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a barren world not so different than our own.

Why I’m waiting:

I’ve been all to the apocalyptic-kind of books lately, so this one fits right it. And really, did you read that blurb? I mean, come on! This book sounds right about epic! Of course I want to read it!

And while we are talking about this kind of books, if you have any recommendations then please, do tell! I will be forever in your debt. 😉

Waiting On Wednesday: Project Cain by Geoffrey Girard

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

This week’s selection is:

Book: Project Cain

Author: Geoffrey Girard

Release Date: September 3rd 2013

Goodreads | Amazon| B&N

Book Description:

Fifteen-year-old Jeff Jacobson had never heard of Jeffrey Dahmer, the infamous serial killer who brutally murdered seventeen people more than twenty years ago. But Jeff’s life changes forever when the man he’d thought was his father hands him a government file telling him he was constructed in a laboratory only seven years ago, part of a top-secret government cloning experiment called ‘Project CAIN’.

There, he was created entirely from Jeffrey Dahmer’s DNA. There are others like Jeff—those genetically engineered directly from the most notorious murderers of all time: The Son of Sam, The Boston Strangler, Ted Bundy . . . even other Jeffrey Dahmer clones. Some raised, like Jeff, in caring family environments; others within homes that mimicked the horrific early lives of the men they were created from.

When the most dangerous boys are set free by the geneticist who created them, the summer of killing begins. Worse, these same teens now hold a secret weapon even more dangerous than the terrible evil they carry within. Only Jeff can help track the clones down before it’s too late. But will he catch the ‘monsters’ before becoming one himself?

Why I’m waiting:

I’m not much of a thriller reader, I like to stick to contemporary or paranormal romance, but the cover got me, and then after reading the description I was trapped. It sounds seriously interesting and I’m really excited to read it. It’s not something I’ve heard before, it seems like a pretty original idea to me and I’m looking forward to checking it out.

Book: Invisibility

Authors: Andrea Cremer & David Levithan

Release Date: May 7th, 2013

Goodreads | Amazon| B&N

Book Description:

Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth.

Why I’m waiting:

You may not know this, but David Levithan is one of my favorite authors in the whole wide world 😉 and duh! I would read anything this man writes! So imagine my excitement when I came across this book, and then imagine the size of my freak out after I read the first chapter. It was a major O.M.G! I’m serious, everyone should read it so I’m not alone in the world freaking out over all the waiting I have to do. So check it out! 😉

As Eden starts to fall in love with Ryan, she begins to unravel his secret. Her breakthrough comes one rainy afternoon when she stumbles across a book in Ryan’s bedroom – a biography of her best friend – written over fifty years in the future.

I’m going to admit it, I’m not one for time-travel stories, but damn it if this doesn’t sound amazing! In love doesn’t cover how I feel about this cover. The colors, everything. Ugh! I want it. NOW. Why is July so damn far away? *pout*

Waiting On Wednesday: Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

This week’s selection is:

Book: Walking Disaster (Beautiful #2)

Author: Jamie McGuire

Release Date: April 16th 2013

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

How much is too much to love?

Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. Just when he thought he was invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

Why I’m waiting:

With the newly released cover Walking Disaster was just begging to be posted. I mean, have you looked at that cover? Man! I know there was a lot of talk over Beautiful Disaster, both good and bad, and while I lay in the middle of it all, I can’t resist getting into Travis’ head. Male point of views are always far more interesting, don’t you think? 😉
