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:
Release date: January 2nd 2014
Publisher: Hodder Children's Books
Synopsis via Goodreads:
London. 1880. In the slums of Spitalfields apprentice blacksmith Luke is facing initiation into the Malleus Maleficorum, the fearsome brotherhood dedicated to hunting and killing witches.
Luke’s final test is to pick a name at random from the Book of Witches, a name he must track down and kill within a month, or face death himself. Luke knows that tonight will change his life forever. But when he picks out sixteen-year-old Rosa Greenwood, Luke has no idea that his task will be harder than he could ever imagine.
Release date: January 7th 2014
Publisher: Walker Childrens
Synopsis via Goodreads:
In 1814, three cousins-Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope-discover their unknown family lineage of witchcraft. Beyond the familiar manicured gardens and ballrooms of Regency London, a dangerous, alluring new underworld visible only to those with power is now open to the cousins.
But unbeknownst to them, by claiming their power, the three cousins have inadvertently opened the gates to the Underworld.
Now the dead, ghouls, hellhounds-and the most terrifying of all: the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters-are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers.
And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders...because she keeps finding the bodies.
Can the cousins unravel the clues and mystery behind their heritage and power before their gifts are stripped away ...or even worse, another witch is killed?
Why I'm Waiting
What are you waiting for?
I got Witch Finder just recently and it looks great, hope it's a fun read.ReplyDelete
Hope you get it soon!
Hope we both enjoy it :)Delete
Thanks for stopping by!
I saw Witch Finder on another WoW today. It looks really good and I think it's up on Netgalley. A Breath of Frost also looks really good. Already on my TBR! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by as well :)Delete
Both books look really interesting :) I've not heard of either one. Thanks for stopping by My WW!ReplyDelete
Great picks, I have both of these titles pre-ordered already and can't wait to read them! Am resisting the urge to go to Netgalley and request Witch Finder :)ReplyDelete
I don't do so well with netgalley because my books always expire before i get to them. So, will try to get my hands on a print galley or just purchase it once its out! :)Delete
Great picks! I got Witch Finder recently, it's next on my to-read list and the cover is beautiful!ReplyDelete
It looks beautiful! Hope you enjoy it :)Delete
I saw both these books recently, and they both caught my eye. Love the covers, and that they're both set in 1800s and about witches. Thanks for sharing and stopping by. :)ReplyDelete
These both look tempting...thanks for sharing. And thanks for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by as well, Laurel :)Delete
Those covers are gorgeous! I would totally pick them up if I saw them in a store. Great choices!ReplyDelete
Oh, I haven't heard of these but the look like they're going to be so interesting. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Aly @ My Heart Hearts Books
Thanks for coming over, Aly :)Delete

Both books look and sound so good!!! :) Great picks!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Magen :)Delete
This is the second time I've seen Witch Finder, and I find it absolutely fascinating. Love the cover of a breath of Frost. I think it's cool how your choices match this week. Thanks for sharing, Shane!ReplyDelete
WoW @ Mary Had a Little Book Blog
Yeah, that was pure coincidence. Honestly :)Delete
Thanks for stopping by!
I love historical paranormal with witches mainly because back then alot of actions, outside of the norm, were labeled witchcraft. It was very difficult to be an "independent" woman. I've never heard of these two titles, but now I'm very interested. Thanks for sharing.Thanks also for visiting my WOW!ReplyDelete
True. The smallest thing were classified as evil huh.Delete
I love the second cover. I haven't read anything by her yet but I have heard great things :)ReplyDelete
So have I. Hopefully i'll enjoy this one.Delete
Oh awesome picks!!!! About A Breath of Frost, I think there's another cover for it...I'm not sure...but this cover is pretty.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by.
Amie @Magic of Words
I think I saw another cover as well but liked this one more.Delete

Witch Finder is a fantastic cover and I may just have to use it for my Cover Crush meme! They both sound great and definitely adding them. Great picks!ReplyDelete

You always pick the BEST books!!! You're the second one for Witch Finder today! I had never heard of it before and it sounds SO good!! I promptly ran and requested it (we'll see). And I'm totally surprised I haven't heard of A Breath of Frost - Oh, I'm so adding that one, too!ReplyDelete
Oh, I'm never getting out from under my books!!! Enjoy the rest of your week, girlie!!!!
Me neither lol. Thanks, Kristin. You too :)Delete
Looove the covers for both of these. I hadn't heard of the first one but it sounds really interesting. I've been eager to read A BREATH OF FROST for awhile!ReplyDelete
