Waiting on Wednesday (88) Mystic City + Chasing the Skip

Well how's the week been for all of you, my lovely readers? I've been slowly catching up with my reading. My only problem now is how I can catch up with my reviews.

Here are our WoW picks this week~ Enjoy!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Mystic City (Mystic City #1) by Theo Lawrence
Release Date: October 9th 2012
Published by: Random House Children's Books

Summary (from Goodreads):

A magical city divided.
A political rebellion ignited.
A love that was meant to last forever.

Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City’s two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents’ sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths.

But Aria doesn’t remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can’t conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place.

Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including herself.

Why I'm waiting for Mystic City:

I think I just fell in love with the book's cover. I like her name, Aria Rose. Warring families uniting for the sake of piece and a mysterious boy, a rebel going against the son of a ruling family? Yes! Sounds like a nice blend of dystopia and romance. So excited for this!

Title: Chasing the Skip by Janci Patterson
Release Date: October 2nd 2012
Published by: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Summary (from Goodreads):

Ricki’s dad has never been there for her. He’s a bounty hunter who spends his time chasing parole evaders—also known as “skips”—all over the country. But now since Ricki’s mom ran off, Ricki finds herself an unwilling passenger in a front-row seat to her father’s dangerous lifestyle.

Ricki’s feelings get even more confused when her dad starts chasing seventeen-year-old Ian Burnham. She finds herself unavoidably attracted to the dark-eyed felon who seems eager to get acquainted. But Ricki thinks she’s ever in control—the perfect manipulator. Little does she know that Ian isn’t playing their game by her rules.

Why I'm waiting for Chasing the Skip:

I'm not a big fan of the cover but there's something in the summary that makes me want to read it. Or is it just because it's all about chases and bad boys that makes this so interesting?
