So apparently my organisational skills suck this week. There was supposed to be a review from me on Monday, which I have now re-scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday), and I was supposed to take part in Top Ten Tuesday but that didn’t happen. I just wanted to take this opportunity to apologise for that, and to say that hopefully from here on I won’t suck at scheduling posts… Anyway, here’s my WoW – my first in 2013.
Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. The book’s blurb has been taken from Goodreads.com All publish dates are according to Amazon.co.uk
This week I am “Waiting On”…
Affliction (Anita Blake #22) by Laurell K. Hamilton
Published: 2nd July 2013
Micah is called back home by his estranged family, because his father, a county sheriff, has been attacked and is terribly injured. Anita and Nathaniel are going with him for moral support and to meet his family under very trying circumstances.
Micah has been estranged from his family for a decade, deliberately turning his back on them to protect them from the sadistic killer who once led his leopard pack. But now Micah’s father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about “zombie disease.”
Anita—who understands zombies better than anyone—knows there’s more to it than that. While zombies have unlovable traits, being one doesn’t cause human beings to rot in agony. She needs to solve that mystery—but now a more immediate issue is pressing: Micah’s father may have only five days to live.
Ink (The Paper Gods #1) by Amanda Sun
Published: 5th July 2013
A MAGIC MIGHTIER THAN ANY SWORD
A DESTINY THAT CAN’T BE DENIED
Katie Greene is lost in the wake of her mum’s death. Sent to Japan, she meets gorgeous but aloof artist Tomohiro, whose tough attitude intrigues and scares her. Then things get really strange. When they’re near each other, Tomohiro’s drawings start to come to life…
Soon the wrong people begin to ask questions, and Katie and Tomohiro must risk everything to protect the truth.
So, those are the two books I am looking forward to reading which are published in July. Let me know in the comments below what you are looking forward to and I will comment back.

Great picks! I’m reading Ink just now and liking it, I’m so far behind with the Anita Blake books – the last one I bought was #18 and I think the last one I read was #16!
I still have to read the one release just before Affliction, but it’s on the shelf right now. I can’t wait to finally meet Micah’s family in this book! I’m liking that these books seem to be getting back to their paranormal detective routes.
I’m looking forward to seeing Micah’s family too! Yeah, I’m hoping that there’s going to be a bit more of a focus on the detective route or maybe on her skills as a necromancer? This book definitley has a lot of potential.
Ink is on my wishlist too. Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing the books you are waiting on! Happy Reading!
