Waiting On Wednesday #9

Photobucket


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine That spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.


Starting this week, Kelly asked if she could be more involved other than just posting reviews so she will joining me on the meme's as well helping me organize guest posts, interviews and giveaways. Because she is adding her pick,I am just going to add one book each week.


I have seen this book around the blogosphere, I admit I haven't read too many YA not since Twilight and Harry Potter, I have been wanting to branch out of my normal and this one sounds awesome so its on my WOW this week.

Angelfire (Angelfire - Trilogy)by Courtney Allison Moulton
Amazon

Amazon Summary:
First there are nightmares.

Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.

Then come the memories.

When Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie's power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness. Only Will holds the key to Ellie's memories, whole lifetimes of them, and when she looks at him, she can no longer pretend anything was just a dream.

Now she must hunt.

Ellie has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives and truths that may be too frightening to remember.

Kelly's WOW
There are 2 books coming out in February that I am absolutely rabid over. I'll share one here and one next week. So this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:



Richelle Mead's
Iron Crowned,

3rd in the Dark Swan series of books.

From Publisher's Weekly:

Eugenie Markham, the new queen of the Thorn Land (as established in Storm Born and Thorn Queen), likes being the daughter of the Storm King and carrying his powers, but the responsibility is a pain. For example, her offspring is prophesied to conquer humanity. She has to visit the otherworld regularly while keeping the bills paid with her part-time shaman gig in the real world. Her ex-boyfriend, Kiyo, is back in her life, while hunky, kinky King Dorian has designs on her body and her womb. Oh, and war is raging between her land and the land of Queen Katrice. The fabled Iron Crown might end the war, but is Eugenie willing to gamble her life on questing for it? Eugenie's a pretty inept queen, but fans of the series will overlook that amid the kick-butt action and hot sex.

It's not that I'm excited that this book comes out on the 22nd of February, it's that I simply CAN'T WAIT!!!! I have another *can't wait* book that I'll tell you about next week.


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Angelfire sounds like a book that's right up my alley, and I've heard very good things about Richelle Mead's books, so I'll have to look into Storm Born. :)

Thanks for the heads up, BHL!

Candace said...

Oh Man!!!! Iron Crowned is FINALLY coming out! It seems like it's been FOREVER since the last one! Thanks for the heads up because I totally forgot!
I didn't care for Angelfire much, it has some great fight scenes but the book itself didn't stand out. BUT I seem to be in the minority ;)

Angelfire has been on my radar since the first time saw it on a Wishlist Donna, like you am branching out into more and more YA reading and enjoying it...

Iron Crowned is pre-ordered and Kelly you are so right it is a can't wait book, why oh why does time pass so slowly when we want to find out what Eugenie is up to NOW!!!!

I've heard Angelfire is really good. I have a galley from netgalley of it, but haven't read it yet. It should be good. Hope you read it soon and like it :)

Haven't heard of this book by Richelle Mead. I absolutely LOVE her Vampire Academy YA series. It's one of my favorite series! So I'll be sure to check out some of her adult titles. :)

I've been meaning to sink my teeth into Richelle Mead's novels for a while now. Must move her up on my TBR list.

Crystal ♥ said...

I requested Angelfire on NetGalley as well but haven't received a response yet. Seeing it around so much has got me curious enough to want to read it though I haven't been in the mood to read too many YA's lately. Have you been by Courtney Allison Moulton's blog? She has been having some great weekly giveaways.

BLHmistress said...

I know I haven't read many YA's since Twilight and Harry Potter. So I wanted to give a few try.

I have been on her site entered a few of the giveaways haven't been lucky yet.
