Waiting On Wednesday #5

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

Touched (Touched, #1) 

Waiting on... a stand-alone/first:

Touched by Corrine Jackson -November 27th by Kensington Teen

Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll becoming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first

Why I'm waiting on this:The cover isn't much but the whole healing thing sounds fantastic, and I love how it sounds gritty as well

Promised (Birthmarked, #3)

Waiting on... a se

Promised by Caragh M O'Brien - October 2nd by Roaring Book Press

After defying the ruthless Enclave, surviving the wasteland, and upending the rigid matriarchy of Sylum, Gaia Stone now faces her biggest challenge ever. She must lead the people of Sylum back to the Enclave and persuade the Protectorat to grant them refuge from the wasteland. In Gaia’s absence, the Enclave has grown more cruel, more desperate to experiment on mothers from outside the wall, and now the stakes of cooperating or rebelling have never been higher. Is Gaia ready, as a leader, to sacrifice what—or whom—she loves most?

Why I'm waiting on this: I love this series and I'm missing my Leon fix. The books aren't exactly pretty looking but I really enjoy this dystopian series.
