Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Once again I haven't joined up with Waiting on Wednesday (or WOW as it's commonly referred to) for ages and as a result, I *had* to pick four books. Chances are high it'll be weeks or months before I take part again. Even at that, this doesn't even come close to the number of books 2015 has in store that are on my "must read" list.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each week you are able to spotlight an up and coming release (or in my case, four) you are anticipating.


All Fall Down, by Ally Carter: Grace can best be described as a daredevil, an Army brat, and a rebel. She is also the only granddaughter of perhaps the most powerful ambassador in the world and Grace has spent every summer of her childhood running across the roofs of Embassy Row.

Now, at age sixteen, she's come back to stay - in order to solve the mystery of her mother's death. In the process, she uncovers an international conspiracy of unsettling proportions, and must choose her friends and watch her foes carefully if she and the world are to be saved.

The Wonder of You, by Susan May Warren: Mortified after her semester abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn’t brave enough for the adventures she’s dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.

Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He’ll do anything for a second chance—even contend with Amelia’s old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.

While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark’s continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her new place mean leaving home behind? - Amazon

Siren's Fury, by Mary Weber: Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he’s destroyed her Elemental storm-summoning abilityas well.

When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Mylesoffers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes.

But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply harnessing a darker ability.
They may require who she is.

Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nymis faced with the chance to change the future.

Or was that Draewulf’s plan for her all along? - Goodreads

  2. I'm definitely excited about Ally Carter's newest book. I didn't really get into her Heist Society series as much as the Gallagher girls, but I'm hoping that this new series will be great :)

    I think I read the first book or two in that series from Susan May Warren, I can't believe the fifth one is coming out already!! I'll need to catch up...
