Waiting on Wednesday (10) and W.W.W Wednesday (9)

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly post by Jill at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week is my ninth time involved in this meme. And this week I've chosen two books because there was no way I could choose just one. One is YA and one is Adult lit.

My first one is Incarnate (Newsoul #1) by Jodi Meadows. This one is being released on January 31, 2012.

This one has been buzzing around Goodreads and in the blogosphere for months. I've had my eyes on this one for forever. It sounds so good. Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?

Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.

The other book I chose is Suspense, Mystery, Crime, Law-aka I should love this. It's Defending Jacob by William Landay. This one comes out on January 31,2012 too.

Here's the synopsis:

Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: His fourteen-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

Every parental instinct Andy has rallies to protect his boy. Jacob insists that he is innocent, and Andy believes him. Andy must. He’s his father. But as damning facts and shocking revelations surface, as a marriage threatens to crumble and the trial intensifies, as the crisis reveals how little a father knows about his son, Andy will face a trial of his own—between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he’s tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive.

Award-winning author William Landay has written the consummate novel of an embattled family in crisis—a suspenseful, character-driven mystery that is also a spellbinding tale of guilt, betrayal, and the terrifying speed at which our lives can spin out of control.

What book are you guys anxiously awaiting for? Anybody else dying for this book to come out? As always feel free to leave your Waiting on Wednesday link below.

And now here's my W.W.W. Wednesday post. This meme is hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I currently reading?

Tempest by Julie Cross. I was supposed to receive this a little while ago (2-3 weeks) but there was a problem with the mail. I've been talking about this one for forever. And even though I've heard there are some technical problems with it. I'm still really excited to read it.

In Dreams by J. Sterling, I didn't get to this last week, because computer crashed, but I'm going to read it this Saturday. I'm really excited to read it, because it sounds amazing.

What did I recently finish reading?

The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges- I just finished this one. I'm still processing, but I liked it a lot. I'm curious to see how she develops her novel. My review of this novel will be posted tomorrow. So be sure to come back and look at my review if you're interested in what I thought of it.

What do I think I'll read next?

Loving Emily by Anne Pfeffer. I've also been looking forward to reading this one. I received it for review just like all the other ones I've mentioned. It sounds really good.

I'm also going to read Falling for Hamlet by Michelle Ray. Because I love Hamlet and am just curious how the retelling goes. I've heard mixed things, but I'm really interested in seeing how the novel goes. I loved Ophelia by Lisa Klein so I have high expectations.  

What are you currently reading? Please feel free to leave your link in the comments.
