"Waiting On" Wednesday (43)

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


Title: Cleopatra's Moon
Author: Vicky Alvear Shecter
Publisher: Arthur A. Levine Books
Release Date: August 1, 2011

"The Luxe" meets the ancient world in the extraordinary story of Cleopatra's daughter.


Selene has grown up in a palace on the Nile with her parents, Cleopatra & Mark Antony—the most brilliant, powerful rulers on earth. But the jealous Roman Emperor Octavianus wants Egypt for himself, & when war finally comes, Selene faces the loss of all she's ever loved. Forced to build a new life in Octavianus's household in Rome, she finds herself torn between two young men and two possible destinies—until she reaches out to claim her own.


This stunning novel brings to life the personalities & passions of one of the greatest dramas in history, & offers a wonderful new heroine in Selene.
I saw this over at Once Upon a Twilight and again on Goodreads and I really loved the cover and the summary! Plus, it's Egypt and Cleopatra's daughter!

Title: Silence (Hush, Hush #3)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Release Date: October 4, 2011

The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.
I love this series and I can't wait for this book! I've heard that this one might be the last book in the series so that's even more exciting!

Title: Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society #2)
Author: Ally Carter 
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH
Release Date: June 21, 2011

Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners.

There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn’t been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous and that is simply… the emerald is cursed.
 Another Ally Carter? Ah, yes please! I loved, loved Heist Society and her Gallagher Girls Series and I can't wait for this one!


WHAT ARE YOU WAITING ON?

  1. I'm not usually interested in historical fiction but Cleopatra's Moon sounds really good. I haven't read anything by Ally Carter but I've heard really good things about her books. I'll have to add her to my TBR list for this summer. Great WoW picks! :)

  3. Great picks! I've had my eye on all of these for a while since C.'s Moon looks intriguing and The Heist Society was so cute. :D
