Waiting on Wednesdays: Girls beating the Guys


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.

The first one is Dauntless by Dina L. Sleiman. It comes out on March 3, 2015 and is being published by Bethany House Publishers. 

The synopsis:

Though once a baron's daughter, Lady Merry Ellison is willing to go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village. Dubbed "The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest," her band of followers soon become enemies of the throne when they hijack ill-gotten gold meant for the king. 

Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, will he choose fame or love?


Why I'm waiting? It just looks epic. I love the idea of a sort-of retelling of Robin Hood. It looks good. 

Add it to your Goodreads shelf.


The second one is One of the Guys by Lisa Aldin. It comes out February 10, 2015 and is being published by Spencer Hill Press.

The synopsis:

Tomboy to the core, Toni Valentine understands guys. She'll take horror movies, monster hunts and burping contests over manicures. So Toni is horrified when she's sent to the Winston Academy for Girls, where she has to wear a skirt and learn to be a "lady" while the guys move on without her. Then Toni meets Emma Elizabeth, a girl at school with boy troubles, and she volunteers one of her friends as a pretend date. 

Word spreads of Toni s connections with boys, and she discovers that her new wealthy female classmates will pay big money for fake dates.

 Looking for a way to connect her old best friends with her new life at school, Toni and Emma start up Toni Valentine s Rent-A-Gent Service. But the business meets a scandal when Toni falls for one of her friends--the same guy who happens to be the most sought-after date. With everything she's built on the line, Toni has to decide if she wants to save the business and her old life, or let go of being one of the guys for a chance at love." 

Why I'm waiting? It comes out soon and looks like it could be really good. I like contemporary, so I'm excited. 

Add it to your Goodreads shelf.
