Waiting on Wednesday (2/1/13)


 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Hi Guys! Happy new year! Hope 2013 has started great for all of you, there are some amazing books being released this year and it was so hard to pick my WOW for the week but here are my two picks for the week.

These WOW picks don't include books that I have as e/ARCs but am yet to read;


The Program (The Program, #1)The Program by Suzanne Young
April 30th 2013 by Simon Pulse

Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.

Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in. And The Program is coming for them.




Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2)Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
2nd April 2013 by Houghton Mifflin

Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.

But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

So that's mine for the week. Don't forget to comment with yours and please follow me if you like my blog!

  3. Nice picks! I'm not waiting on Dark Triumph, because I couldn't get into Grave Mercy, so I gave up on it, but I really want to read The Program.

    Happy New Year!

  12. I still have Grave Mercy on my to be read pile. The only good thing about that is the shorter wait to read the sequel! Thanks for stopping by my WoW at proseandkahn. Don't know why google won't let me choose that blog as my identity:-/

  13. The Program looks like such a fantastic dystopia! I can't wait to read it. And Dark Triumph!!! I am beyond excited for that book. Grave Mercy was probably my favorite book in 2012, and I can't wait to see what the sequel brings!

    Fantastic picks. <3 Thanks for sharing!

  29. 'Dark Triumph' was my WoW last week so I completely agree with that pick! I hadn't heard of 'The Program'. Sounds a little bit like 'Delirium' but with depression. It sounds good.

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW post

  36. Both awesome picks! I'm really looking forward to them. In fact, I have some guesses for Dark Triumph after how Grave Mercy ended. So, I'm hoping I have some of the plot figured and the rest full of surprises. Love these picks!

    Thanks for visiting my WoW.
