“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week as I’m still “waiting on” the book I was last week, I thought I would post a couple of books that whilst they already published I can’t wait to get my hands on them.
Immortal City (Immortal City #1)
by Scott Speer
Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He’s days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone’s obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect – everyone except for Madison Montgomery.
Maddy’s the one girl in Angel City who doesn’t breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn’t recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.
Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson’s scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi – and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels’ wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat … and this time it’s up to Maddy to save Jackson.
This sounds like it could be an interesting read. Not really a fan of the cover. But I want to give this a try. It kinda sounds like it will be a “male version” of The Hills or Strange Candy both of which I like so we’ll see…
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1)
by Suzanne Collins
Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don’t live to see the morning?
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.
I’ve heard some good things about this book, and the film seems really interesting. I really want to pick this up and see if it lives up to my expectations, or not.

My daughter loved The Hunger Games, both the film and the book. She has the second and third book lined up too.
Good pick! The Hunger Games is a great YA read, I hope you enjoy it. Have a good reading week!
The summary and the idea that the world is aware of the angels excitence sounds really intruging! Nice choice! 🙂
I really enjoyed The Hunger Games and can’t wait to read Immortal City. Great choices!
I read THG years ago and really enjoyed it back then. Very curious about Immortal City myself. I’m actually giving it away right now, but haven’t gotten a copy for myself yet. >_< XD
