"Waiting On" Wednesday (29)

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

Ripple by Mandy Hubbard 
August 2011 

Eighteen year old Lexi is cursed--by day, she's just like every other teen at Lincoln City High. But from dusk until dawn, she's forced to swim and sing, a modern day siren. At sixteen, her voice became a deadly lure, and Steven-- the only boy she's ever loved-- followed her straight into the story surf and drowned. Now, Lexi spends her nights at a forgotten lake up in the mountains, where she can swim and sing in peace. She's become an ice queen, forced to keep everyone around her at arm's length in order to protect them. That is, until Cole comes to town. Cole, with his dark good looks and prying questions. She can't seem to keep him away, and she's no longer sure she wants to. But how can she let him in when it can only end in his death?

This cover looks great, not to mention the synopsis. And on top of that, it's Mandy Hubbard! I can't wait to see how she wrote this book!

Secrets and Shadows (13 to Life, #2) by Shannon Delany

No Summary of this book has been released! Not to mention that fact that I have yet to read this first book! But I will ASAP!

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
December 2, 2010

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris — until she meets √Čtienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna — and readers — have long awaited?

I read Sara's from The Hiding Spot's post about how great this book is and I just have to read it! Plus, it's got a hot guy, a boarding school, and it's in France. What more could you want?

Entice (Need, #3) by Carrie Jones
Bloomsbury Publishing PLC
December 7, 2010

There's no synopsis for this one either, but I have read the first two books in this series and I can't wait for this one to come out! I want to know what happens so badly! 

Elixir by Hilary Duff
Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
October 12th 2010

Clea Raymond has felt the glare of the spotlight her entire life. The daughter of a renowned surgeon and a prominent Washington DC politician, she has grown to be a talented photojournalist who takes refuge in a career that allows her to travel to the most exotic parts of the world. But after Clea’s father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, Clea’s photos begin to feature eerie, shadowy images of a strange and beautiful man—a man she has never seen before.

When fate brings Clea and this man together, she is stunned by the immediate and powerful connection she feels with him. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father’s disappearance, and they discover the centuries old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fates, together they race against time to unravel their pasts in order to save their lives—and their futures.

You want the truth? I was shocked when I heard she was going to be an author. Now, after reading that, I actually think this book sounds interesting. I never thought I would but I have been proven wrong. And yes, I do actually like that cover, so there I've said it. What's more is that we don't normally see actors/actresses turn into YA authors.
