Waiting On Wednesday 8-29-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.

This week I am doing two books, one a YA the other a MG book. I really want to start reading more MG since I tend to really like them.

The first book for my Waiting on Wednesday is Naturals by Tiffany Truitt. I really enjoyed Chosen Ones and I am really looking forward to where the story goes next. That was quite an ending!!

 *WARNING!! If you haven't read the first book in the Lost Souls series, the overview is a bit spoilery!*

 Overview

 Tess is finally safe from the reach of the Council, now that she is living in the Middlelands with the rebel Isolationists. With James having returned to Templeton, she easily falls back into her friendship with Henry, though her newfound knowledge of Robert’s chosen one status still stings. Even surrounded by people, Tess has never felt more alone. So she’s thrilled when James returns to the settlement, demanding to see Tess — until she finds out that it’s because her sister, Louisa, has been recruited into Tess’s old position at Templeton, and that the dangerously sadistic chosen one George has taken an interest in her.

The next book for my Waiting on Wednesday is The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver. I have not read her MG book Liesl and Po, but I have read Deliruim, Pandemonium, and Before I Fall and I love her writing. I think that I will really like this book.

Overview

One night when Liza went to bed, Patrick was her chubby, stubby, candy-grubbing and pancake-loving younger brother, who irritated and amused her both, and the next morning, when she woke up, he was not. In fact, he was quite, quite different.

When Liza’s brother, Patrick, changes overnight, Liza knows exactly what has happened: The spindlers have gotten to him and stolen his soul.

She knows, too, that she is the only one who can save him.

To rescue Patrick, Liza must go Below, armed with little more than her wits and a broom. There, she uncovers a vast world populated with talking rats, music-loving moles, greedy troglods, and overexcitable nids . . . as well as terrible dangers. But she will face her greatest challenge at the spindlers’ nests, where she encounters the evil queen and must pass a series of deadly tests—or else her soul, too, will remain Below forever.

From New York Times best-selling author Lauren Oliver comes a bewitching story about the reaches of loyalty, the meaning of love, and the enduring power of hope.


This sounds really great! It sounds like a great and entertaining book full of adventure. I am definitely looking forward to reading this one!!

So what books are you waiting for? Leave me a link and I will hop over to your blog. :)
