Waiting on Wednesday: December Picks


Waiting on Wednesday features upcoming releases and is hosted by Breaking the Spine. This is our monthly post, where we pick books that are coming out in the next month that we just cannot wait for. That we're absolutely dying to read. 

Although it seems like everyone else has read it but us, we're both really excited about These Broken Stars.

Author:  Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Publisher:  Disney Hyperion, 384 pages
Expected Publication Date:  December 10, 2013

From Goodreads:
It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

Pam's Picks
In addition, I'm excited about:
Class of '98 by A.L. Player, expected publication date: December 3, 2013
Girl and guy get sent back in time from their tenth year high school reunion to senior year of high school.  Described as Back to the Future meets She's All That.  Enough said.
Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes, expected publication date:  December 3, 2013.
I've already read this, but I loved Falling Kingdoms so much and Rebel Spring is fantastic.  Described as a YA Game of Thrones, this is one of my favorite fantasy series right now.
Bitter Sweet Love by Jennifer L. Armentrout, expected publication date:  December 1, 2013.
I'm not a big novella fan, but a new series from JLA?  Involving gargoyles?  Can't wait!
Sheri's Picks
The Geeks Guide to Dating by Eric Smith, expected publication date December 3, 2013.  Who doesn't love a story where the geeks finally win?

One More Day by L.S. Murphy, expected publication date December 2, 2013.
A collection of short stories that asks a variety of authors to consider what if your world suddenly changed.
 
Dangerous Dream by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, expected publication date December 17, 2013.  I just started the Beautiful Creatures series and I am loving it.  This series will focus on some of the secondary characters like Link and Ridley.



What are you waiting for?

  1. I just finished These Broken Stars and omg I loved it so much. It was amazing!!! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

    I just got Falling Kingdoms for my Kindle and can't wait to start reading it. I've heard great things about the series.

    I don't know how I feel about the new Beautiful Creatures series... I think I'll probably wait until after it comes out and read a few reviews. I liked the Beautiful Creatures series, but I almost feel like maybe this new series is going to make it tired. You know what I mean?

    1. Yes, I definitely need fluffy sometimes, some of these books can be pretty dark so it's nice to balance it out. Congrats on winning the ARC! ~Pam

  5. Well, I haven't read These Broken Stars yet, waiting on my preorder since I couldn't snag a copy beforehand, but so looking forward to it. I can't wait for JLA's new series, haven't read anything with gargoyles, and the novella will be perfect for the rest of the wait. I haven't actually heard of the others, ahh. Great picks! :)

    Heres mine

    1. I've only read one book about gargoyles, The Beautiful and the Cursed, and I loved it. I love anything JLA writes, so it should be really good. ~Pam

  6. I CANNOT stop gushing about These Broken Stars. I sound like a madman and a broken record, but it is THAT GOOD. Still my favorite book of the year. I already want to re-read it and it has only been a couple of months. I can't wait for you both to read it!

    And I was SO excited to see a spin-off of the Beautiful Creatures series. I really like those characters and look forward to their canon.


    GREAT PICKS ladies!
