Waiting on Wednesday/ W.W.W Wednesday (23)




Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The point is to share a book that hasn't been released yet, but one that you are dying to read. This is my twenty-ninth time participating in this meme.

And now for the books I'm waiting for. I chose one Adult novel and one Young Adult novel.

The first one is Do Over by Shannon Guymon. It comes out on February 12,2013 and is being published by Covenant Communications.

The synopsis:


Who wouldn't be tired of dating after falling for the wrong woman over and over again? Trey has decided to take a much-needed break from the fairer sex, until Iris tumbles into his life. Their romance will either be a disaster waiting to happen or the best fairy tale since Sleeping Beauty. This final installment of the Alpine series will have you giving love another chance.

Why I'm waiting? Shannon Guymon's books are always fabulous. This series is hilarious and yet it always manages to have a deeper meaning. I've had the opportunity to read and review a lot of Shannon's books for work. If you like cute adult fiction, then check this one out. I'm so excited for it to come out. 

Add it to your Goodreads shelf.

The second one is Mind Games by Kiersten White. It comes out on February 19, 2013 and is being published by HarperTeen.

The synopsis:


Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future. 


Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.

In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.


Why I'm waiting? I was actually really surprised by how much I loved her Paranormacly series and so I'm excited to see what Kiersten does with this series. It sounds really intriguing and so yeah I can't wait to see if it lives up to my expectations. 

Add it to your Goodreads shelf here.

And those are three of the books that I'm dying to read. But enough about me, what book did you guys pick? Please leave your link in the comments section. I love hearing from you guys.

~W.W.W. Wednesday (23)~

W.W.W. Wednesday is another weekly meme. This one is hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading. To play along just answer three simple questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? And what do you think you'll read next?

This is my twenty-first week participating in this meme. I forgot to do this last week, so there are a lot of novels in the what I just read pile.

What am I currently reading?


I'm currently reading Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout.  Yes I know I was an idiot and how did I not read it sooner, but I'm reading it now and I really like it so far.



I'm also currently reading Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi. I've had this one for awhile, but I'm just barely getting to reading it. I'm loving it so far. It is incredible.


I'm also reading A Civil Action by Johnathon Harr for class. It's about a law case involving a big company that could be tied to giving several children leukemia. It's based on a true story and so far it's fantastic. I'm loving this inside look into the court room. 

What did I recently finish reading?

A ton of books so I'm just going to list them. These ones are all linked to my reviews of them: Something Maybe by Elizabeth Scott, Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines, The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd, Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik. I also finished Salvation and all of Julie Lessman's Daughters of Boston and Winds of Change series. Yes, I got a lot of reading done.

What do I think I'll read next? 



I'm thinking I will read Dare You To by Katie McGarry next. I got it from Netgalley. I can't believe it but I did. I loved Pushing the Limits so I can't wait to read this one. 

I will also be reading The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter. I'm nervous but excited to see how Aimee wraps this series up.

That's all for me. What about you guys? What are you reading? Please leave your link in the comments. I love hearing from you.

Love,

Danica Page

  27. Hey, Danica!

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my WOW! I couldn't come over until now, because I was at work. Now I'm home (until I go to my second job, at 7:00 PM), so I can comment on your two memes.

    I LOVE both of your WOW picks!! They both look like interesting, fun reads, and I'm adding them both to my TBR. The first book is sure to be pretty funny, while the second one sounds pretty intense.

    As for your answers to the questions in the second meme, I can only say that I don't know how you're able to read so fast,... I'm totally amazed! I want to read "Obsidian" and "Through the Ever Night". I'm not familiar with the others, but I'll be sure to check them out!
