Waiting on Wednesday- Flashtide by Jenny Moyer

It’s been AGES since I did Waiting on Wednesday but I thought I’d jump in again because I feel so out of the loop on upcoming titles! I’m trying to be a little more active here on my blog.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: Flashtide by Jenny Moyer

FlashtideFlashtide (Flashfall 2)
By: Jenny Moyer
Release Date: November 14th 2017
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.

Summary:
Orion has survived the tunnels of Outpost Five, filled with mutant creatures and dangers around every bend. She has traversed the cordons, exposed to the radiation of the flash curtain and hunted by forces that want her stopped, dead or alive. Now, with Dram by her side, she has made it to the safety of the mountain provinces, where free Conjurors live and practice their craft of manipulating matter.

But Orion’s story is far from over.

With the effects of the flashfall spreading and the might of the protected city of Alara looming, Orion must travel into the hands of her enemies once again. Heart-pounding action and adventure await in this sequel to Flashfall.

My review of Flashfall book 1.

Waiting on Wednesday #25

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: In the End (In the After #2) by Demitria Lunetta

In the End (In the After, #2)Summary:
It’s been three months since Amy escaped New Hope, and she’s been surviving on her own, like she did in the After. Until one day, her former fellow Guardian’s voice rings out in her earpiece. And in a desperate tone, Kay utters the four words Amy had hoped she would never hear: Dr. Reynolds has Baby.

Now it’s a race against time, for Baby is in imminent danger, her life threatened by the malevolent doctor who had helped start the end of the world. In order to save Baby, Amy must make her way to Fort Black, a prison-turned-survivor-colony, where she will need to find Ken, Kay’s brother. He alone holds the key to Baby’s survival.

One small slip-up on this quest could spark a downward spiral that would not only cost Baby and Amy their lives, but threaten the very survival of the people in the After.

Why Am I Eagerly Waiting For In the End?
I loved In the After, the characters had heart and were unique. This book gave me a few nights of creepy dreams. I loved the suspense and tension and can’t wait to see where Lunetta will take the story next.

Waiting on Wednesday #24

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: Meridian by Josin L. McQuein

MERIDIAN by Josin L. McQueinSummary:
Marina thought that she had solved all of the Arclight’s mysteries. She had found her own history—that she was one of the Fade, that she never should have been human. She knows that the Fade who surround the Arclight don’t want to be the humans’ enemies at all. She knows that the leader of those inside the Arc, Honoria Whit, never told the whole truth. But there is so much more that Marina is just discovering. There are more survivors out there. Only Marina—and her friends, all of whom have connections to the Fade they’d never known about—can lead her people to them. But there are also darker dangers, things that even the Fade fear. And Marina slowly realizes she may never have been “cured,” after all. The sequel to Arclight, Meridian is an intense, action-packed page-turner about the lines we draw between right and wrong, light and dark . . . and the way nothing is ever that black and white

Why Am I Eagerly Waiting on Meridian?
I loved Arclight, it was one of my very favorites this year. I can’t wait to see where McQuein takes the story next.

Waiting on Wednesday #23

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: Control by Lydia Kang
Control (Control, #1)Summary (via Goodreads):
When a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself in a safe house for teens who aren’t like any she’s ever seen before—teens who shouldn’t even exist. Using broken-down technology, her new friends’ peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is encoded in Dyl’s DNA.

A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in 2150—in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy drugs, and guys with four arms—this is about the human genetic “mistakes” that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can turn out to be heroes.

Why am I eagerly awaiting on Control?
From the moment I saw Control I knew I wanted to read it. I’ve been on a sci-fi kick so the futuristic setting and the promise of genetic ‘mistakes’ makes me want this book badly.

Control by Lydia Kang will be available December 26th 2013 by Dial Books for Young Readers

Waiting on Wednesday #22

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
Ignite Me (Shatter Me, #3)Summary:
The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love”

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she’ll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam-was wrong.

Why am I eagerly awaiting Ignite Me?
I felt that Unravel Me was an amazing sequel even better than the first. I can’t wait to see where Mafi will take us this time and how she’ll have us swooning and picking up the pieces of our hearts.

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi releases February 4th 2014 by HarperCollins
