FEATURE: Waiting on Wednesday (#15)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Hi Swooners :-)

This week my "can't-wait-to-read" pre-publication selections are:

Expected release date: February 25, 2014
Links: Amazon / Barnes and Noble



Summary from Goodreads:

Alexi Littrell hasn’t told anyone what happened to her over the summer. Ashamed and embarrassed, she hides in her closet and compulsively scratches the back of her neck, trying to make the outside hurt more than the inside does.


When Bodee Lennox, the quiet and awkward boy next door, comes to live with the Littrell, Alexi discovers an unlikely friend in “the Kool-Aid Kid,” who has secrets of his own. As they lean on each other for support, Alexi gives him the strength to deal with his past, and Bodee helps her find the courage to finally face the truth.

Expected release date: March 4, 2014
Links: Amazon / Barnes and Noble



Summary from Goodreads:

When Ileni lost her magic, she lost everything: her place in society, her purpose in life, and the man she had expected to send her life with. So when the Elders sent her to be magic tutor to a secret sect of assassins, she went willingly, even though the last two tutors had dies under mysterious circumstances.


But beneath the assassins’ caves, Ileni will discover a new place and a new purpose…and a new and dangerous love. She will struggle to keep her lost magic a secret while teaching it to her deadly students, and to find out what happened to the two tutors who preceded her. But what she discovers will change not only her future, but the future of her people, the assassins…and possibly the entire world.

So i'm sure you can figure out why these books appeal to me. Both these book sound sooooooo amaze-balls to me. Can't wait to get my hands on these bad boys!!!
