Waiting On Wednesday (20th March 2012)

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

Another week and another load of books I wish I could list... still, here are my two!
Here are my picks for this week, let me know what you think and add me a link to yours in the comments :)

Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike
July 30th 2013 by Razorbill


Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. Tavia will soon to discover that she’s an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.

Evil society? Strange visions? Making matter out of nothing
This one sounds so unbelievably exciting and interesting, plus, Aprilynne Pike is great!

The Shadow Girl by Jennifer Archer
April 9th 2013 by HarperTeen

The Shadow Girl

Sometimes I forget for an hour or two that she's with me. Sometimes I convince myself that she was only a dream. Or that I'm crazy.

For as long as Lily Winston can remember, she has never been alone. Iris, a shadowy figure who mimics Lily's movements and whispers in her ear, is with her always—but invisible to the rest of the world. Iris is Lily's secret.

But when Lily's father is killed in a tragic accident, his cryptic final words suggest that he and Lily's mother have been keeping secrets of their own. Suddenly, Iris begins pushing Lily more than ever, possessing her thoughts and urging her to put together the pieces of a strange puzzle her father left behind. As she searches for answers, Lily finds herself drawn to Ty Collier, a mysterious new boy in town. Together, Lily and Ty must untangle a web of deception to discover the truth about her family, Iris . . . and Lily's own identity
This sounds both creepy and mysterious. It's released quite soon but I only just found it!

  9. I am SO excited for both of these! The summaries sound so good and I'm dying to read them! Awesome picks! :) And thanks for stopping by my WoW earlier!

  10. I've been waiting for The Shadow Girl as well.
    Anyways great picks! :D

  11. Both of these books sounds amaaaazing, and I haven't heard of either of them! The Earthbound's cover is stunningly beautiful, and the concept sounds friggin awesome! I'm definitely adding both of these to my TBR list :D

  12. I think I've passed over Earth Bound a couple of times on Goodreads and other blogs but didn't really pay much attention to it. I'm glad I actually read the summary, it sounds really good! I'll definitely have to pick it up once it comes out--I wish it wasn't so far away!

    I'm following you back :) Can I just say, a volcanologist sounds like it'll be such a fun job! I've never seen a volcano in person but they are so fascinating. I was strongly considering being an archaeologist for awhile because I loved learning about Pompeii in high school.

  13. They both sound good! I like Aprilynne Pike too. Thanks for stopping by mine for Going Vintage and The Avery Shaw Experiment.

  21. This comment has been removed by the author.

  22. I've seen Earthbound before and it looks very interesting! This is the first I am seeing Shadow girl, and based on the blurb it looks like it should be a great read. Thank you so much for stopping by my WoW and following - New Follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  23. Gee, this sounds so very mysterious and interesting! It's also very original -- I've never heard of anything remotely like it!
    Thanks for enlarging my TBE pile! :)

  24. Ooh I really like the sound of the sci fi slant in Earthbound. The Shadow Girl makes me super curious about its conspiracy theory. I love how both these books deal with hidden/mysterious pasts that come to affect the protagonist's future!

  25. I love the cover of Earthbound. And the cover of The Shadow Girl is CREEPY!! Thanks for sharing these great picks with us!

    Awesome choices you got there. :3

  27. Both of these sound so good! I never heard of The Shadow Girl before. It kind of reminds me of the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer a little bit, and I loved that!
