Waiting on Wednesday (24th July 2013)

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

I got my first year university results back and I've passed! I am soooo happy now!

Pawn by Aimee Carter
November 26th 2013 - Harlequin Teen

Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion, #1)


For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.

This one sounds amazing. A dystopian which sounds awesome, but written by the awesome Aimee Carter (author The Goddess Test). Exciting stuff!

Mayday by Jonathan Friesen
April 10th 2014 - Speak


Why’d I do it? I suppose it’s the only question that really matters. 

Seventeen-year-old Crow will stop at nothing to protect her younger sister—even if it costs her her own life. But then she’s given a chance to come back and make things right. There are a few catches, though. First, she won’t come back as herself. And before she can set things straight, she’ll have to figure out what’s what—and things aren’t exactly as clear-cut as she remembered.

A Before I Fall meets mystery plot? This one sounds amazing but it's the cover that grabbed my interest!


  1. Pawn actually looks awesome! I read Carter's The Goddess test trilogy but only really enjoyed the first one, I hope with Pawn, I will enjoy it as much as The Goddess Test!
