Waiting On Wednesday (2)

And yet another WoW post! I couldn't resist and I have quite a few in my list today. But don't worry, I'm just gonna list them and have two featured (complete with summary and picture!) ^^

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I've been waiting for this week:

(With the newly revealed cover!)

Ripple by Mandy Hubbard

Eighteen year old Lexi Wentworth is cursed. For as long as she can remember, she’s spent every night swimming. If she doesn’t, she’ll regret it—simply walking will be agony, as if she’s stepping on shattered glass. Her body craves the water, demands the water, until she can’t say no.

But it's not the swimming that troubles Lexi. It’s the singing that goes with it.When she turned sixteen, her siren song killed the only boy she's ever loved. Now, she avoids the popular shores of the Pacific in favor of a long forgotten lake up in the mountains, where she can swim and sing in peace, far from the population of her oceanside home.

Until, that is, Troy Mills discovers her lake. He’s new to Lincoln City High, and he doesn’t know about Lexi’s reputation as an ice queen—a reputation she’s carefully cultivated to keep everyone around her safe. He pushes her, talks to her, forces her to dream of what life could be like if she weren’t a siren.

Lexi can’t stop herself from warming to him, from falling for him. Soon, he’s demanding answers, following her to the lake, unknowingly risking his life. How can she keep him safe when the one thing she wants most--to hold him close-- will endanger his life?

Wither by Lauren DeStefano

What if you knew exactly when you would die?

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she trusts, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limited time she has left.

I haven't read (but I am planning to!) You Wish and yet I am so excited for this book! And Wither seems to be interesting (you gotta love the cover!) Anyway, here's the other books I've been waiting for:
So what are your WoW books for this week?


  1. Both of your picks look awesome! I can hardly wait to read them, too

    My WoW is here Manga Maniac Cafe

  2. Ripple by Mandy Hubbard sounds so great!

  3. Both of those books look great! I REALLY can't wait for Ripple :D

  4. I just read someone else's blog who was looking forward to Wither, as am I, but I haven't seen Ripple before. I have to say, it looks incredible!

  5. Wither's one of my picks too! Also I have never heard of Ripple before but it sounds fantastic, so thanks! :)
