Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. This event highlights our most-wanted upcoming releases!
I have Sarah J. Maas (Author of the upcoming THRONE OF GLASS; I interviewed Sarah last month! ) to thank for introducing me to the following two authors. I was hooked the moment she announced that her friends had book deals on her blog! That's one reason I love following authors I like: In addition to seeing what they're up to, I can find out about more awesome books to love!
Author: Kat Zhang
Release Date: Sept. 18, 2012

Are you sicking of hearing me say the summary sounds amazing? I am too, but words escape me. Kat Zhang has begun a new series that sounds like nothing I've read before. I also love the fact that it's being compared to HIS DARK MATERIALS, which has always been a favorite series of mine. September is way too far away for this one!
Also, what do you think about the book's cover? Kat revealed it on Friday. I like the way it's a puzzle piece with only half a girl. The puzzle itself is imperfect, with white blotches where there should be color! I also like the color gradiation, which pulls it away from all the white and gray!
Author: Brigid Kemmerer
Release Date: April 24, 2012

Another book that sounds fresh and unique! April isn't too far off! Plus, at that time, there will be not one, but TWO releases in the series, this and the 0.5 novella ELEMENTAL. Brigid released the cover for 0.5 and the next two novels, SPARK and SPIRIT, yesterday on her blog! I'm really excited! (Also, is it wrong to say that I'm intrigued that there are guys on the cover for once? That rarely happens in YA these days!)
This is another really hard wait for me, but at least this one is closer! It also has a bit of an AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER feel due to people controlling the four elements, but that's 100% okay in my book!
What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
