Waiting on Wednesday #56: Landry Park & Deathsworn


 
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:

Landry Park (Landry Park, #1)
Landry Park
by Bethany Hagen
Release date: February 4th 2014
Publisher: Dial

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Madeline Landry is born into a world of influence and luxury, a world of estates and gardens fueled by nuclear power and maintained by a caste of people called the Rootless. When a Gentry girl is attacked, it is the Rootless who are blamed, even though Madeline knows better.

As she searches for the truth, she can't escape the rumors of revolution and retribution circulating through the ballrooms, and neither can she escape the city's new golden boy, Captain David Dana, who has secrets of his own. Soon, she finds herself forced to choose between her duty and her desires, her ancestral destiny and her conscience, and her choice will shake the very foundations of the world she was born to rule.



Deathsworn (Deathsworn, #1)Deathsworn
by Leah Cypess
Release date: March 4th 2013
Publisher: Greenwillow

Synopsis via Goodreads:

When Ileni lost her magic, she lost everything: her place in society, her purpose in life, and the man she had expected to spend her life with. So when the Elders sent her to be magic tutor to a secret sect of assassins, she went willingly, even though the last two tutors had died under mysterious circumstances.

But beneath the assassins’ caves, Ileni will discover a new place and a new purpose… and a new and dangerous love. She will struggle to keep her lost magic a secret while teaching it to her deadly students, and to find out what happened to the two tutors who preceded her. But what she discovers will change not only her future, but the future of her people, the assassins… and possibly the entire world.



Why I'm Waiting


The covers intriguing. I literally want to jump in the book at first glance. Both have really interesting synopsis though they're different in concepts. I just can't wait to read the stories and hopefully fall in love with them.

What are you waiting for?

  25. Hi, Shane!

    These are two AMAZING picks!! I especially like "Death Sworn", but "Landry Park" also looks pretty good. However, since I know that Cypess has written books dealing with magic before, I'm a little more partial to her. I'll be putting both books in my TBR pile, though!

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog and commenting on my WOW!! : )
