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:
by Nadia Simonenko
Released: February 25th 2013
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Sometimes you need someone else to help you find your way.
Maria's life was torn apart when she was fifteen, and for seven years she's kept her terrible secret hidden from the world. Now, in her final semester of college, she still struggles against paralyzing fear just trying to speak up in class, and the terror and helplessness linger on in her nightmares.
Across campus, Owen sees his scars in the mirror every morning while he gets ready for class. They remind him of the broken home he left behind, the father he hates and fears, and the little sister he couldn't protect. Now, in his final semester of college, he's scared that he may have to return to the hell he called home after staying away for almost five years.
When Owen becomes a teaching assistant for one of Maria's classes, they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. As the two learn each other's secrets and grow closer, they realize that although they may be lost, they're not alone anymore.
This new adult contemporary romance is recommended for ages 17+ due to heavy subject matter.
Expected Release: July 15th 2013
Synopsis via Goodreads:
We’ll find each other somehow. We’re not lost anymore...
All it took was one phone call to tear Owen's life apart. His father is dead and his mother is in critical condition. Even though he feared his abusive father and despised his family, losing them hurts in a way he never expected. Just weeks ago, Owen was terrified that he'd have to go home. Now, there is no home.
I know, I'm a promo whore lol. But don't you just love the artwork and the plot. I really do. And I can't wait to get my hands on both books. Besides, I'm currently hosting the blog tour for Lost so that's even better.
What are you waiting on?

Yay someone who's heard of the series! It's really hard to get publicity as an indie author, so I'm excited whenever I hear someone talk about Lost. :) Hope you like it!Delete
Oh my goodness, this looks so good! I have a feeling that it'll become a student-teacher relationship thing.ReplyDelete
And you're completely right Shane, the covers are gorgeous!

I could tell you what happens, but then, of course, I'd have to kill you. :)Delete
This could be awesome from the sound of it! I'm a sucker for these college stories with damaged people... a little closer to my age/world than YA :) Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my post!ReplyDelete
