Waiting on Wednesday (6)



Waiting on Wednesday is a book meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we showcase some of our hotly anticipated releases!




WHAT HAPPENS NEXT by COLLEEN CLAYTON

Release date: 9 October 2012
Poppy (Little Brown Books for Young Readers), 320 pgs
How can you talk about something you can’t remember?

Before the ski trip, sixteen-year-old Cassidy “Sid” Murphy was a cheerleader (at the bottom of the pyramid, but still...), a straight-A student, and a member of a solid trio of best friends. When she ends up on a ski lift next to handsome local college boy, Dax Windsor, she’s thrilled; but Dax takes everything from Sid—including a lock of her perfect red curls—and she can’t remember any of it.

Back home and unable to relate to her old friends, Sid drops her college prep classes and takes up residence in the A/V room with only Corey “The Living Stoner” Livingston for company. But as she gets to know Corey (slacker, baker, total dreamboat), Sid finds someone who truly makes her happy. Now, if she can just shake the nightmares and those few extra pounds, everything will be perfect... or so she thinks.



MAID OF SECRETS by JENNIFER MCGOWAN

Release date: 16 April 2013
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 288 pgs

Seventeen-year-old Meg Fellowes is a wry, resourceful thief forced to join an elite group of female spies in Queen Elizabeth’s Court. There she must solve a murder, save the Crown, and resist the one thing that will become her greatest freedom–and her deadliest peril. 

For Meg and her fellow spies are not alone in their pursuit of the murderer who stalks Windsor Castle.

A young, mysterious Spanish courtier, Count Rafe de Martine, appears at every turn in the dark and scandal-filled corridors of the Queen’s summer palace. And though secrets and danger are Meg’s stock-in-trade, she’s never bargained on falling in love…



I'm so excited for these two! Despite the cheesy title MAID OF SECRETS sounds like a really fun read and I love books set in court (any court, any place)! I can't wait to see the cover.

What are you waiting on this week? Link me because I'd love to see!

  3. I like the sound of Maid of Secrets, the first one I think I'd wait to see some reviews for, but then again I'm someone who only picks up contemporary novels once in a while...of if someone else recommends them to me as must must must reads :)

  6. I still can't decide if I want to read What Happens Next. Ironically, I love history, but I don't read that many historical novels, I just don't get through them very quickly. Great picks, L! :)

  9. Great choices! I believe both of these are on my own Wish List - especially What Happens Next. I really love stories about court life, too, especially if they're not the same old-same old.
