"Waiting On" Wednesday (41)

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

Title: Legacy
Author: Cayla Kluver
Publisher: HarlequinTeen
Release Date: June 21, 2011

The first boy disappeared on the day of his birth, on a night when the pale yellow moon of the nighttime sky turned red and bathed the heavens in the ghastly color of blood, on the same night the Kingdom of Cokyri abruptly ceased its merciless attack.

Across the land of Hytanica, under the shadow of the crimson moon, infant boys continued to vanish. Not until the blood had faded from the sky did the disappearances stop and the bodies of the murdered infants were found outside the gates of the city, a final word from the greatest enemy Hytanica had ever known. For the next sixteen years, peace reigned, but one mystery remained unsolved. The Cokyrians had abducted forty-nine newborns, but returned only forty-eight bodies.

Now, as seventeen-year-old Princess Alera of Hytanica is besieged from all sides by suitors vying for the Throne, a teenage Cokyrian boy, Narian, is encountered within the walls of her Kingdom, a boy who will show Alera a world where women serve a purpose and not just a husband. As Narian helps Alera find her voice, she struggles against an arranged marriage that will shatter the life she has scarcely begun to live. And when Narian's shocking past is uncovered, and war with Cokyri looms once more, he must fight to defy a fate ordained at his birth.
 This sounds like a great read! I saw this book on another blog and after reading the synopsis, I just had to check it out!

Title: Past Perfect
Author: Leila Sales
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: October 4,2011

A summer job is exactly the distraction that Chelsea needs in order to finally get over Ezra, the boy who dumped her on her a** and broke her heart to pieces just a few weeks before. So when Chelsea's best friend, Fiona, signs them up for roles at Essex Historical Colonial Village, Chelsea doesn't protest too hard, even though it means spending the summer surrounded by drama geeks and history nerds. Chelsea will do anything to forget Ezra.
But when Chelsea and Fiona show up for their new jobs, they find out Ezra's working there too. Maybe Chelsea should have known better than to think a historical reenactment village could help her escape her past. ...or will this turn out to be exactly the summer that Chelsea needed, after all?
 This sounds like a super fun read! I love the cover with the frizzled rain!
Title: Enshadowed
Author: Kelly Creagh
Publisher: Atheneum
Release Date: January 17, 2012
While Varen remains a prisoner in the dream-world, Isobel is haunted by his memory. He appears to her in her dreams and soon, even in her waking life. But is she just imagining it? Isobel knows she must find a way back to Varen. She makes plans to go to Baltimore. There, she confronts the figure known throughout the world as the Poe Toaster—the same dark man who once appeared to Isobel in her dreams, calling himself “Reynolds.” Isobel succeeds in interrupting the Toaster’s ritual and, in doing so, discovers a way to return to the dream-world. Soon, she finds herself swept up in a realm which not only holds remnants of Poe’s presence, but has also now taken on the characteristics of Varen’s innermost self. It is a dark world comprised of fear, terror, and anger.
When Isobel once more encounters Varen, she finds him changed. With his mind poisoned by the dream world, he becomes a malevolent force, bent on destroying all—even himself. Now Isobel must face a new adversary, one who also happens to be her greatest love.
I fell in love with Nevermore when I read it last year and I was super excited to see that there was going to be a second book! I love the synopsis and I LOVE the cover! I'm glad they stuck with that same dark look and the purple font!



  1. i'm seeing a lot of past perfect around the blogosphere and i really want to read it now. but i'm so sad enshadowed isn't coming out till next year. i loved the first book so much, i want it NOW. fantastic picks!

    Please stop by our WoW post.


  2. These all look like great books! I haven't heard of Legacy or Past Perfect, but they both look like awesome books, especially Legacy. I added it to my TBR list. I have yet to read Nevermore, but really want to. I should probably get to it before the sequel comes out!

    Feel free to check out my WoW here.

  3. Past Perfect's cover is so cute and i'm likeing the premise as well. I haven't read Nevermore though I've heard amazing things about it and can't wait to read it for myself ^-^
