Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Just a quick note to let everyone know I am now out of hospital and am back home taking things slowly. Glad to see that the scheduled posts worked – I knew there was a reason to get ahead with reviews. If you’re awaiting an email reply from me don’t worry – I will get to you soon. Sorry that there hasn’t been a whole lot of content on here other than reviews, but hopefully things will go back to normal . . .

 

Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. As always, the summary provided is from Goodreads.com This week I am “Waiting On” two books which I think sound like they’ve got potential.

The Elemental SeriesStorm (Elemental #1)
by Brigid Kemmerer

Published: June 13th 2012.

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn’t want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

The storm is coming . . .

My Life Next Door
by Huntley Fitzpatrick

Published: June 14th 2012

A gorgeous debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another

“One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time.”

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase’s family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A dreamy summer read, full of characters who stay with you long after the story is over.

I think both books sound really interesting and like they could be absolutely brilliant reads! And I have to admit that I love both of the covers too.

What are you “Waiting On” this week?

  1. Hi Becki- I haven’t been around much so I just saw that you were in the hospital. Sorry to hear you were ill. Glad you are out now and are taking things slowly.

    Speaking of the books – both choices look fabulous. Storm is on my list to read asap. And I just loved My Life Next Door. Hope you do too when you get the chance to read it :)
