"Waiting On" Wednesday (60)

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

Title: Bitterblue (The Seven Kingdom's #3)
Author: Kristin Cashore
Publisher: Dial
Release Date: May 1, 2012

Book 3, tentatively titled Bitterblue and currently in progress, is a companion book to both Graceling and Fire and takes place in the seven kingdoms eight years after Graceling. Bitterblue will tie all three books together in some way. Bitterblue is the sixteen-year-old protagonist, and Katsa, Po, Giddon, Helda, and other characters from Graceling will be part of the fabric of the book. Plenty of fighting still to come!
I  have been waiting for this book for like ever! I love the cover and Kristin says that it goes with the book really well so I can't wait to see how it represents the book and characters. AND PO!!!!
Title:Getting Over Garrett Delaney 
Author: Abby McDonald  
Publisher: Candlewick Press 
Release Date: January 24, 2012 

Seventeen-year-old Sadie is in love: epic, heartfelt, and utterly one-sided. The object of her obsession — ahem, affection — is her best friend,Garrett Delaney, who has been oblivious to Sadie’s feelings ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust (not to mention his deep blue eyes).

For two long, painful years, Sadie has been Garrett’s constant companion, sharing his taste in everything from tragic Russian literature to art films to ’80s indie rock — all to no avail. But when Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder — until he calls to say he’s fallen in love. With some other girl! A heartbroken Sadie realizes that she’s finally had enough. It’s time for a total Garrett detox!

Aided by a barista job, an eclectic crew of new friends (including the hunky chef, Josh), and a customized self-help guide, Sadie embarks on a summer of personal reinvention full of laughter, mortifying meltdowns, and a double shot of love.
I saw this over at Lori of Pure Imagination and I knew I just HAD to read it after reading the summary! 



  1. I LOVED Graceling, like, hard. I tried reading Fire, but I had a really hard time getting into it. What did you think of Fire? Does it get better after the first 30 pages or so?

  2. I'm soooo excited for Bitterblue! I LOVED Graceling and Fire, and I can't wait for this one. I hadn't heard of Getting Over Garret Delaney, but it's definitely going on my list because it sounds like exactly my kind of book!

  3. Getting Over Garrett Delaney sounds sooo cute!!!!

  4. Bitterblue was my WoW a few weeks ago and the cover wasn't released at that time! It is very pretty. Your other pick looks like a lot of fun, too--I've read Sophomore Switch and Boys, Bears and Serious Pair of Hiking boots. I didn't know she had a new one--thanks for the tip. Here's my WoW.

  5. I'm excited for Bitterblue. I just read Graceling a few weeks ago and she ws my favorite character.
