Waiting on Wednesday #53: Snakeroot & Options



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:

Snakeroot (Nightshade Legacy, #1)Snakeroot (Nightshade Legacy #1)
by Andrea Cremer
Release date: December 10th 2013
Publisher: Penguin


Synopsis via Goodreads:
Fans asked for it, and now they've got it! Andrea Cremer is continuing the story she began in in her internationally bestselling trilogy: Nightshade, Wolfsbane and Bloodrose. In this new installment, Bosque Mar haunts the dreams of both Adne and Logan, trying to escape for the Nether, where Calla, Shay and the other Guardians trapped him in the final battle in the War of All Against All. Will he turn Adne to the dark side? Will Logan reclaim his birthright? And will darkness take over our world? In a novel filled with magic, romance and breakneck action, master storytelling Andrea Cremer's newest installment will not disappoint!



OptionsOptions
by Abbi Glines
Release date: December 5th 2013

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Two paths.
Two completely different roads.
Each one standing before me.
Each one holding a different destiny.

In life you're just supposed to choose one path. 
In life you're not given the chance at choosing one specific future.

Until now.
Until me. 

Why am I different? I don't know. But I'm going to see those roads and walk down each one. When it's over I'll know which one to choose because I'll know my - options.





Why I'm Waiting


Its funny, fantasy is actually my favorite genre but I've been straying a bit lately with all these new adult contemporary books. I guess its the warm weather :) Anyways, coming this fall I antcipate drowning myself in the world of fantasy and I'd really like to get my hands on these two. 

I haven't read the Nightshade series as yet but definitely going to and would really like to read the upcoming spinoff. As for Options, well, I'm intrigued, and loving that celestial cover. Though, Snakeroot has a rather theatric cover as well, don't you think :)


What are you waiting for?

  4. I've not read the Nightshade series yet either. I haven't heard of either but look very interesting. I love fantasy too! It was the first genre I really got into (with Dragonlance) so it'll always be close to my heart.

  6. I actually prefer the Snakeroot cover. I can't believe AC is going back to this series, albeit via different characters. I would definitely be up for trying this one! (I didn't fancy the 'medieval' prequel she published.)

  11. These are both new to me. Thanks for bringing my attention to them. Can you believe I still haven't read an Abbi book?! I know!! Totally unacceptable!! I have a few on my kindle too, just haven't gotten to them. :( I've heard she's absolutely amazing though, so I'm sure this one will be amazing too. Great picks!

  24. Options sounds great! But I'm not so sure about snakeroot, I've read the Nightshade series and I'm just not so sure how she's going to make it all work, still I'm going to read it.

  31. Woah, I had absolute no idea that Andrea Cremer was coming up with a new series set in her same world!! Crazy. I'm not quite sure if I'll pick it up, because I had some meh feelings about it, but I do like the cover! I also haven't read anything by Abbi Glines yet, so I may have to pick up Options when it comes out...

    Lovely picks Shane! <3

  37. Loved the Nightshade series! But since it is continuing with only a few characters I'm not sure how I'll like this new one but it's worth a try. I haven't really liked Abbi Glines contemps but maybe a fantasy would be more my type of read. Thanks for stopping by!
