Waiting on Wednesday #51

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 for this week:

RelicRelic
by Renee Collins

Release date: August 27th 2013
Publisher: Entangled Teen

Synopsis via Goodreads:
After a raging fire consumes her town and kills her parents, Maggie Davis is on her own to protect her younger sister and survive best she can in the Colorado town of Burning Mesa. In Maggie’s world, the bones of long-extinct magical creatures such as dragons and sirens are mined and traded for their residual magical elements, and harnessing these relics’ powers allows the user to wield fire, turn invisible, or heal even the worst of injuries.


Working in a local saloon, Maggie befriends the spirited showgirl Adelaide and falls for the roguish cowboy Landon. But when she proves to have a particular skill at harnessing the relics’ powers, Maggie is whisked away to the glamorous hacienda of Álvar Castilla, the wealthy young relic baron who runs Burning Mesa. Though his intentions aren’t always clear, Álvar trains Maggie in the world of relic magic. But when the mysterious fires reappear in their neighboring towns, Maggie must discover who is channeling relic magic for evil before it’s too late.
Relic is a thrilling adventure set in a wholly unique world, and a spell-binding story of love, trust, and the power of good.


3:593:59
by Gretchen McNeil

Release date: September 17th 2013
Publisher: HarperCollins

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. Her parents are divorcing, her boyfriend Nick has grown distant, and her physics teacher has it in for her. When she's betrayed by the two people she trusts most, Josie thinks things can't get worse.

Until she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time—3:59 a.m.

Jo's life is everything Josie wants: she's popular, her parents are happily married, and Nick adores her. It all seems real, but they're just dreams, right? Josie thinks so, until she wakes one night to a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror – Jo. 

Josie and Jo realize that they are doppelgängers living in parallel universes that overlap every twelve hours at exactly 3:59. Fascinated by Jo's perfect world, Josie jumps at the chance to jump through the portal and switch places for a day.

But Jo’s world is far from perfect. Not only is Nick not Jo's boyfriend, he hates her. Jo's mom is missing, possibly insane. And at night, shadowy creatures feed on human flesh.

By the end of the day, Josie is desperate to return to her own life. But there’s a problem: Jo has sealed the portal, trapping Josie in this dangerous world. Can she figure out a way home before it’s too late?

From master of suspense Gretchen McNeil comes a riveting and deliciously eerie story about the lives we wish we had – and how they just might kill you.




Why I'm Waiting? 


These three all seem intriguing in their own right. I've been getting into new adult books a lot lately so the first one is at the top of my to read list once its out, as for the other two, well, I'm always going to be a fan of anything fantasy like so can't wait to consume the stories. 


What are you waiting on?

  12. You have three TERRIFIC picks here! As you said in the post, each one is intriguing in its own right.

    "Trying to Get Over You" has a plot that I'm sure lots of young girls have lived through in real life. I know it'll be tearjerker, but I'm interested because I'd like to see these two make it work!!

    As for the other two books, I'm a fantasy addict, too, so they're DEFINITELY a must!! "Relic" has a VERY original plot, and "3:59" deals with parallel universes, something I LOVE to read about!!

    Thanks for adding to my TBR pile! Lol. :

  14. Oh, I'm totally looking forward to all of these, as well! I think that 3:59, if done well, has the ability to be a great new twist on the YA horror genre. I also just LOVE the sound of Relic. Wonderful selections, Shane :) I'm your newest follower!
