Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that showcases our most anticipated upcoming releases.



I am waiting on two this week.







My Chemical Mountain by Corina Vacco

Expected publication: June 11th 2013 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Rocked by his father’s recent death and his mother’s sudden compulsion to overeat, Jason lashes out by breaking into the abandoned mills and factories that plague his run-down town. Always by his side are his two best friends, Charlie, a fearless thrill junkie, and Cornpup, a geek inventor whose back is covered with cysts. The boys rage against the noxious pollution that suffocates their town and despise those responsible for it; at the same time, they embrace the danger of their industrial wasteland and boast about living on the edge.

Then on a night the boys vandalize one of the mills, Jason makes a costly mistake–and unwittingly becomes a catalyst for change. In a town like his, change should be a good thing. There’s only one problem: change is what Jason fears most of all.











Devour by Andrea Heltsley

Expected publication: February 2013

He wasn’t supposed to remember.

Callie is a royal vampire. She hunts by taking the blood from her victims and erases their memories afterwards. She goes undetected until a victim named Chase approaches her the next day with all his memories intact. He is intrigued and attracted. She is terrified. What happens when a human mixes with the immortal world? Chaos.

Callie’s 18th birthday has passed and she is coming out at the annual blood ball the next night. Will she find a mate or will she suffer the repercussions of her indiscretion? She is brought to the Vampire council and they must decide what to do with Chase. Do they kill him, or turn him to protect their secret?








Why am I waiting? I think these three boys sounds like can get themselves into some major trouble. I think it will certainly entertaining to see what Jason is so worried about. And I came across Devour, and loved the cover and it is about vampires. Um, yes please. So, what are you waiting on?




Happy Reading…

    I love the sound of both books. I’m curious about the boys and I can’t wait to see what you think of it. As for Devout I love the cover! I haven’t read any vampire book in a while so I believe I should :)

    Here is our WOW

  2. Monica

    I hadnt heard of either of these books. Both sound amazing thought. I will def check them out. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    The model on the cover of Devour looks a bit like Scarlett Johansson, lol. These both sounds really good though, and I’ll probably check out Devour when it comes out. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by!

    My Chemical Mountain sounds really interesting! I also love the cover. To be honest, it’s been so long since I read a book from a male’s perspective, so I’m definitively putting it on my to-read list. Thanks for stopping by my blog – you’ve got yourself another follower. ;)

    Both sound great! I feel attracted to the gritty industrial setting of the first one in particular :) Thanks for stopping by my post earlier!

    Awesome wow picks. Both sound very interesting. I will have to check them out when they come out. Thanks for sharing and visiting my WoW.

  8. Felicia

    Ooh. Both look pretty good. Especially Devour. I might have to add that to the TBR list. Nice wow picks. Hope you get to read them :)

    The first one sounds really strange. I don’t think I would pick it up for the topic, it doesn’t really grip me, but it’s a male PoV story, soo…. *sigh* I’m very undecided. Haven’t heard of the second one, either, but the story doesn’t sound totally new to me. I’ve come across something like this at some point before, although I can’t seem to remember. oO Anyway, thanks a lot for stepping by and sharing! =) Happy reading!

    My Chemical Mountain-well THAT’S different, sounds like an interesting read! I’m not too crazy about reading about vampires anymore, taking a much needed break. Thank you for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW!

    I haven’t heard of either of these but My Chemical Mountain sounds like my kind of book. I wonder why Cornpup has cysts on his back. And why is Jason afraid of change? Sounds like any change in that town would be good. I’m putting that one on the list! Great Choice and thanks for visiting my blog!

    These are both new titles for me! My Chemical Mountain is the more interesting one in my opinion (I’m a bit vampired out), especially since it’s about three boys and there seems to be no love triangle or love interest in sight!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW! I’ve followed you back via Networked Blogs. :)
