Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases our most anticipated upcoming releases.
There are two that I am patiently waiting on this week.
The Rules (Project Paper Doll #1) by Stacey Kade
Expected publication: April 23rd 2013 by Disney-Hyperion
2. Remember they are always searching.
3. Don’t get involved.
4. Keep your head down.
5. Don’t fall in love.
Five simple rules. Ariane Tucker has followed them since the night she escaped from the genetics lab where she was created, the result of combining human and extraterrestrial DNA. Ariane’s survival—and that of her adoptive father—depends on her ability to blend in among the full-blooded humans, to hide in plain sight from those who seek to recover their lost (and expensive) “project.”
But when a cruel prank at school goes awry, it puts her in the path of Zane Bradshaw, the police chief’s son and someone who sees too much. Someone who really sees her. After years of trying to be invisible, Ariane finds the attention frightening—and utterly intoxicating. Suddenly, nothing is simple anymore, especially not the rules…
Elemental by Antony John
Expected publication: November 21st 2012 by Dial
Sixteen-year-old Thomas has always been an outsider. The first child born without the power of an Element—earth, water, wind or fire—he has little to offer his tiny, remote Outer Banks colony. Or so the Guardians would have him believe.
In the wake of an unforeseen storm, desperate pirates kidnap the Guardians, intent on claiming the island as their own. Caught between the plague-ridden mainland and the advancing pirates, Thomas and his friends fight for survival in the battered remains of a mysterious abandoned settlement. But the secrets they unearth will turn Thomas’ world upside-down, and bring to light not only a treacherous past but also a future more dangerous than he can possibly imagine.
I love the cover on both of these. The Rules… Aliens, um yes please.. It sounds awesome… And Elemental, one lone child born without any powers in a world where everyone is. Sounds like it will be really good too.
What is your WoW pick this week?
