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. Here's what I'm waiting for:
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Lies, secrets, and magic — three things that define Kayla's life.
Sixteen-year-old Kayla plans to spend her summer hanging out on the beach in Santa Barbara and stealing whatever she wants, whenever she wants it. Born with the ability to move things with her mind — things like credit cards, diamond rings, and buttons on cash registers — she has become a master shoplifter. She steals to build up a safety net, enough money for her and her mom to be able to flee if her dad finds them again. Well, that, and the thrill of using her secret talents.
But her summer plans change when she's caught stealing by a boy named Daniel — a boy who needs her help and is willing to blackmail her to get it.
Daniel has a talent of his own. He can teleport, appearing anywhere in the world in an instant, but he lies as easily as he travels. Together, they embark on a quest to find and steal an ancient incantation, written on three indestructible stones and hidden millennia ago, all to rescue Daniel's kidnapped mother. But Kayla has no idea that this rescue mission will lead back to her own family — and to betrayals that she may not be able to forgive... or survive.
Why I'm Waiting
I haven't read a book about a character who moves things with her mind before. This sounds very x-men-ish and that intrigues me because I'm a huge fan of that franchise. Daniel sounds as interesting as Kayla so it's good that both main characters have some supernatural ability and it's not only one. I can't wait to dabble in this story. Hopefully it delivers.
What are you waiting for?
That was my first thought too! I've never come across a character/book that could do that (excluding X-Men). I also love the cover for this, simple yet really pretty!ReplyDelete
So true. Thanks for stopping by, Patty.Delete
This book is on my to-be-read too! The cover is beautiful and it sounds awesome! :DReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by Katja :)Delete
Great choice! The premise sounds incredibly intriguing. I too have never read a book with a main character like this. I'll definitely be reading this when October rolls around! :)ReplyDelete

I have never heard of this one, but that plot sounds incredibly intriguing! Great choice, Shane;)ReplyDelete
Great pick! And I hope it will deliver, too :)ReplyDelete
I've seen this cover quite a bit, though it doesn't sound like my type of read. I hope you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
Sounds good. I'm sure I see this one on netgalley not so long ago. Thanks for sharing and stopping by my blog :)ReplyDelete
I've wanted to be able to do telekinesis ever since I first saw the movie Matilda. Because I've only ever looked at the cover of this book so far, I had no idea that it was about telekinesis and teleportation! Awesome :D Thanks for reminding me that books really shouldn't be judged by their covers... at least not always ;)ReplyDelete
I think this sounds like so much suspense and fun! I love the simplicity of the cover as well. :) I also hope it's as good as it sounds!ReplyDelete
OOh nice! Been seeing this one around a bit! Hope you love it once you enjoy it!ReplyDelete
Here's my WoW
Have a GREAT day!

Ooooh, well this sounds really fun and intriguing. You're so right about not seeing a book like this (I haven't seen anything quite like this before either) and I love Bloomsbury as a publisher. They find such amazing authors! Thanks for the addition to my TBR, and happy reading!ReplyDelete
This does sound a little X-Men which I love. Definitely adding this to my list :)ReplyDelete
sounds super interesting!ReplyDelete
This does sound really good. It's been up on NetGalley for a while. I hope you enjoy reading it.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't it be cool to have those powers?ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!
I don't think I've heard of this one before, but it sounds awesome. Love the touch of supernatural! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Ooh, this one definitely sounds xmen-ish and I'm totally into that! Really hope this one ends up being as fantastic as it sounds in the blurb!ReplyDelete
Great choice! I have seen it sporadically, but never really paid attention, but the whole moving stuff with her mind sounds pretty great! Thanks for sharing it!ReplyDelete

I saw this maybe a couple of weeks ago on another WoW and found it really interesting. I'm very curious about the dynamic of the relationship between the two main characters. I hope it delivers for you. :) Thanks for stopping by my WoW :)ReplyDelete
Sounds really good, Shane! I love stories where the characters have strange powers, and teleportation is one I would love to have myself :) It seems like there is much more to the story than that, though, so I'm adding it to my TBR. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
