This week’s selection is:

Book: Just One Day

Author: Gayle Forman

Release Date: January 8th 2013

Goodreads |Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

When sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Why I’m waiting:

When I first saw this book yesterday I liked the cover. And then I saw the author’s name and thought: why does this ring a bell? and then BAM! Of course! It’s the author of If I Stay and Where She Went! And then I read the summary and fell in love. There are no doubts that I will read this book. I mean, did you read the summary? I want! Thank goodness it isn’t so far away from being released. 🙂

So, what are you waiting on?  Leave a comment with your WoW link below and I’ll make sure to check it out!

Waiting On Wednesday: The Collector by Victoria Scott

“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: The Collector (Dante Walker #1)

Author: Victoria Scott

Release Date: March 12th 2013

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

He makes good girls…bad.

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.

Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.

Why I’m waiting:

Do I even need to explain? I don’t think I fell for a book as fast as I fell for The Collector. I’ve been swooning over it since I found it months ago. AND because I’m lucky (and Victoria is awesome) I’m part of the V Mafia Family, as you can see on the sidebar. Which is like huge for me! [Click on the Badge if you want to find out more about it]

And now, because I’m as much of a tease as Dante is (you’ll learn soon enough that he is plenty, if you haven’t already) I’m going to make you want the trailer. Mhmm. Watch it!

Waiting On Wednesday: Flawed by Kate Avelynn

“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: Flawed

Author: Kate Avelynn

Release Date: November 13th 2012

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Sarah O’Brien is alive because of the pact she and her brother made twelve years ago — James will protect her from their violent father if she promises to never leave him. For years, she’s watched James destroy his life to save hers. If all he asks for in return is her affection, she’ll give it freely.

Until, with a tiny kiss and a broken mind, he asks for more than she can give.

Sam Donavon has been James’ best friend — and the boy Sarah’s had a crush on — for as long as she can remember. As their forbidden relationship deepens, Sarah knows she’s in trouble. Quiet, serious Sam has decided he’s going to save her. Neither of them realize James is far more unstable than her father ever was, or that he’s not about to let Sarah forget her half of the pact…

Why I’m waiting:

Flawed sounds like an angst packed book, and I’m all in for that. Drama, drama, drama! 😉 It sounds amazing, and I can’t wait for November (for more than one reason *cough*). I think this will be a killer one, and I hope it’s as goods as it sounds.

Rae’s always dreamed of dating a guy like Nathan. He’s nothing like her abusive stepfather—in other words, he’s sweet. But the closer they get, the more Nathan wants of her time, of her love, of her…and the less she wants to give.

As Rae’s affection for Nathan turns to fear, she leans on her friend Leo for support. With Leo, she feels lighter, happier. And possessive Nathan becomes jealous.

Then a tragedy lands Rae in the ICU. Now, hovering between life and death, Rae must find the light amid the darkness…and the strength to fight for life and the love she deserves

This one is kind of far, far away, but it’s the only one I could think of right now that I’m waiting on. Well, actually there are like fifty of them, yes fifty. But. But I liked this cover better. 😉

Waiting On Wednesday: My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron

Book: My Favorite Mistake

Author: Chelsea M. Cameron

Release Date: September 29th 2012

Book Description:

Taylor Caldwell can’t decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him.

On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome, blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he’s a tattooed, guitar-playing bundle of bad boy. Maybe that’s why Taylor’s afraid of falling in love with him, or anyone else. She doesn’t want to get burned, and even though her other roommates adore him, she wants him gone before it’s too late.

Hunter himself has been been burned before, but the fact that Taylor calls him out on his crap and has the sexiest laugh ever make him decide maybe love isn’t a lost cause. They make a bet: if she can convince him she truly loves or hates him, he’ll leave the apartment–and leave her alone. The problem is, the more time they spend together, the less she hates him, and the more she moves toward love.

But when the man who holds the key to Taylor’s fear of giving up her heart resurfaces and threatens to wreck everything, she has to decide: trust Hunter with her greatest secret, or do everything in her power to win that bet and drive him away forever.

Why I’m waiting:

I found about this book last sunday, and I immediately thought: I want to read it. So here we are. It sounds like an interesting book, a little romance, a little heartache, and for what I heard so far, it’s good! So, yes, definitely waiting on it! Plus, it’s out on saturday! Can’t pass that up! 😉

At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves.

Do I even have to mention how much I actually love the cover? I mean, look at it! It’s beautiful! I don’t know why but I just love it. And the description is promising as well, which means I can’t wait for this book.

I have read Kate’s other work: Taste [See my review] and I truly enjoyed it, so I’m confident this will be just as good. I guess I’ll just have to wait all month long to read it. And make no mistake, I intend to read it as soon as I get my hands on it! 😉

Waiting On Wednesday: Unravel Me by Kendall Ryan

“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: Unravel Me

Author: Kendall Ryan

Release Date: October 1st 2012

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Psychology student Ashlyn Drake’s neat, orderly life takes a turn for the crazy when she finds the perfect subject for her amnesia thesis – a young man without any memory of his previous life, including the murder he’s accused of committing.

Against all common sense, Ashlyn’s drawn to him like a moth to a flame. Perhaps it’s that he’s so incredibly male, and even handcuffed to his hospital bed he could pass for a cologne ad – Scent de Insanity. Or perhaps it’s because she’s spent too many lonely nights studying. Either way, she’s determined to help him solve the mystery of his past. She begins to unravel who he was before, using his cryptic tattoos, and his paintings that scream of a dark past as her only clues. When she finally learns his secret there’s no telling which one is the real him, the gentle lover she’s fallen for or the troubled man with a dark past.

Why I’m waiting:

I had to give some thought to today’s WoW. I have tons of books that I’m dying to read that are not yet released, but I thought I should spotlight a book that’s not really out there, a book that not everyone is talking about and waiting for, but that everyone should be talking about. And I think I have a few of this kind of books, but today I’ll go with Kendall Ryan’s Unravel Me.

I don’t really know what draw me to this book. Maybe it was the cover, that is completely gorgeous and intriguing; or maybe it was the summary that promises an intense and emotional ride. Or maybe it was both. What I do know, though is that I’m definitely dyyyyyyying eager to get my hands on it. And with a little less than a month away Unravel Me shall prove to be a  not-so-painful wait.
