Waiting on Wednesday #43


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spines. This is a cool way to spotlight a upcoming release that you're anxious about, as well as checking out what other book lovers are anticipating as well. So, check out my WoW this week:

Armored Hearts

Armored Hearts

by 
Expected publication: May 20th 2013
Publisher: AltWit Press
Synopsis via Goodreads:
When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother's side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairy tales. Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park, left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair. Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.

The Truth About You and Me

The Truth About You and Me

by 
Expected publication: September 8th 2013 
Publisher: Flux
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Smart girls aren't supposed to do stupid things.

Madelyn Hawkins is super smart. At sixteen, she's so gifted that she can attend college through a special program at her high school. On her first day, she meets Bennet. He's cute, funny, and kind. He understands Madelyn and what she's endured—and missed out on—in order to excel academically and please her parents. Now, for the first time in her life, she's falling in love.
There's only one problem. Bennet is Madelyn's college professor, and he thinks she's eighteen—because she hasn't told him the truth.
The story of their forbidden romance is told in letters that Madelyn writes to Bennet—both a heart-searing ode to their ill-fated love and an apology.

Why am I waiting? Well, both sound like really interesting stories. I'm intrigued by characters facing challenges, and I'm always willing to see how everything turns out. Plus, stories about assassins and intense romance is right up my alley. 

What are you waiting on?

  12. "The Truth about You," sounds amazing! I hope it doesn't have a sad ending, because of their age difference!

  13. The Truth About You and Me is definitely on my TBR pile and look at that cover!I know I shouldn't be doing this but I'm totally judging Armored Hearts on the book cover, it seems like it's a steampunk type of book and I have not had good experience from them but, love the WoW this week!

  15. Ooh, forbidden romance is great, but I'm not such a fan of stories told in letters. Then Armoured Hearts sounds so unique!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW! Jen @ YA Romantics
