Waiting on Wednesday (14th August 2013)

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

Anyway, here is my WOW pick, let me know what you think and link me to yours!

Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen
February 11th 2014 by Walker Childrens

Lady Thief (Scarlet, #2)
Scarlet’s true identity has been revealed, but her future is uncertain. Her forced marriage to Lord Gisbourne threatens Robin and Scarlet’s love, and as the royal court descends upon Nottingham for the appointment of a new Sheriff, the people of Nottingham hope that Prince John will appoint their beloved Robin Hood. But Prince John has different plans for Nottingham that revolve around a fateful secret from Scarlet’s past even she isn’t yet aware of. Forced to participate at court alongside her ruthless husband, Scarlet must bide her time and act the part of a noblewoman—a worthy sacrifice if it means helping Robin’s cause and a chance at a future with the man she loves. With a fresh line of intrigue and as much passion as ever, the next chapter in Scarlet’s tale will have readers talking once again.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series (Scarlet) and it ended on such a happy and yet worrying ending, so I am excited to see where Lady Thief leads. 

Vitro by Jessica Khoury
January 14th 2014, Razorbill

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings--the Vitros--have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to visit Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. She enlists hunky charter pilot Jim Julien to take her there. But once on the island, Sophie and Jim encounter more than they bargained for, including a charming, brilliant Vitro named Nicholas and an innocent, newly awoken one named Lux.

In a race for their lives, Sophie and Jim are about to discover what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.

I'll admit that I wasn't a MASSIVE fan of Origin, at all. Still, it showed potential so I'm going to give Vitro a shot to see how Khoury does on this one!


  1. I'm so excited for Vitro! Also, didn't realize that the cover for Lady Thief is out, looks so cool!

  2. Vitro sounds good. Not typically something I would get, but I'm definitely intrigued. Enjoy!

  3. I'm not waiting on Vitro, but I cannot WAIT for Lady Thief! Oh my gosh! I love the cover. Scarlet was so good... ahhh! Bloomsbury, send an ARC my way! :D

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  4. I liked Origin, but I'm not sure if I'm going to read Vitro or not. I mean, I want more of Eio and Pia, not new characters.

  5. First of all, I really like the covers for both of these books, but Lady Thief especially! Those colours! I haven't yet read the first book by either of these authors, but they are currently BOTH sitting on my bookshelf staring me down. I'm still excited about these picks, though! :)

  6. I'm excited for Vitro, too. It sounds interesting. I didn't read Origin and it did get some fairly dismal reviews, but the premise for Vitro sounds so interesting. I haven't read Scarlet yet, so I didn't read the synopsis for Lady Thief. Great picks!

  7. I'm excited for Vitro as well sounds right up my alley. I never read Scarlet although I do have it just sitting around xD

  8. Vitro sounds AWESOME! I haven't read Origin yet but I'm still looking forward to Vitro! Thanks for stopping by my WOW @ Addicted Readers and commenting! :-)

  9. These look good. Hope you get to read it soon!
