Waiting on Wednesday {23}

"Waiting on Wednesday " is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

After Dark by Emi Gayle
Expected publication: October 31st 2012 by J. Taylor Publishing 


What eighteen year old Mac Thorne doesn’t know will probably kill her.

In exactly eight months, five days, three hours and thirteen minutes, Mac has to choose what she’ll be for the rest of her life.

She has no choice but to pick. As a Changeling, it’s her birthright. To Mac, it’s a birthchore. Like going to school with humans, interacting with humans, and pretending to be human during the pesky daylight hours.

Once darkness descends, Mac can change into any supernatural form that exists — which makes her as happy as she can be. That is, until Winn Thomas, the biggest geek in her senior class figures out there’s more to what hides in the dark than most are willing to acknowledge.

In this first of the 19th Year Trilogy, Winn might know more about Mac than even she does, and that knowledge could end their lives, unless Mac ensures the powers-that-be have no choice but to keep him around.

This sounds like an urban fantasy, and there are not enough of those in the YA genre <3 I'm not entirely sure if I'll like this, but it definitely sounds intriguing.

Poison Princess by Kresley Cole
Expected publication: October 2nd 2012 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers 

Sixteen-year-old Evie Greene thought her horrific apocalyptic hallucinations were a sign that she was slowly losing her mind. But when her visions come true, decimating the world around her and killing everyone she loves, Evie is forced to accept that she was seeing the future.

Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she turns to wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate, the gorgeous and dangerous Jackson Deveaux for help. As Jackson and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have got the same call and discover that Evie is not the only one with special powers. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and as the battle between good and evil intensifies, it is not always clear who is on which side…


I don't think I even need to explain.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? (That awkward hump in the middle of the week . . .) Leave a link and I'll check it out!

  1. I love Urban Fantasy novels! And I agree that we need more of them in YA. That's probably one of them main reasons I turn to Adult Fiction. And Poison Princess sounds amazing! Great picks :)

    My WOW
