Waiting on Wednesday (4-6)

Waiting on Wednesday was created by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it is a weekly event in which readers mention one book they are eager to get their hands on!

So when I was in Korea, I missed two WoW posts, so I am using this week’s post to catch up! >< 
For this week, I have chosen……

City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments, #5) by Cassandra Clare

Release Date: May 8, 2012

Summary (taken from Goodreads.com):
In Book 5: City of Lost Souls, the Shadowhunters struggle to piece together their shattered world after a betrayal by one of their own leaves them reeling.
There is not much of a summary, but I do not care! I do not need one! I am sure I am not the only one dying to read this book. After reading Clockwork Prince and all of its awesomeness, I cannot wait for May (plus, I really need a Jace fix)!

So for the two weeks I missed, I have chosen…..

Release Date: April 2012
Summary (taken from Goodreads.com):

What if you were mankind’s last chance at survival?
Sixteen-year-old Tess lives in a compound in what was once the Western United States, now decimated after a devastating fourth World War. But long before that, life as we knew it had been irrevocably changed, as women mysteriously lost the ability to bring forth life. Faced with the extinction of the human race, the government began the Council of Creators, meant to search out alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial human beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.
Life is bleak, but uncomplicated for Tess as she follows the rigid rules of her dystopian society, until the day she begins work at Templeton, the training facility for newly created Chosen Ones. There, she meets James, a Chosen One whose odd love of music and reading rivals only her own. The attraction between the two is immediate in its intensity—and overwhelming in its danger.
But there is more to the goings-on at Templeton than Tess ever knew, and as the veil is lifted from her eyes, she uncovers a dark underground movement bent not on taking down the Chosen Ones, but the Council itself. Will Tess be able to stand up to those who would oppress her, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?

The premise seems really interesting and my dystopian kick has reared its ugly head again (probably because I just finished reading Cinder– which was AWESOME, by the way). 

And the second book I chose is……

Release Date: February 16, 2012
Summary (taken from Goodreads.com):

Pretty in Pink meets Anna and the French Kiss in this charming romantic comedy.
Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that’s just fine by her. She’s got her friends – the fabulous Frankie and their sweet cohort Sadie. She’s got her art – and her idol, the unappreciated 19th-century painter Edward Willing. Still, it’s hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is your French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before. But can the invisible girl actually end up with a happily ever after with the golden boy, when no one even knows they’re dating? And is Ella going to dare to be that girl?
I love the cover to this book, and with Anna and the French Kiss mentioned in the summary, I am super excited to check this out. It just looks adorable and I love a cute, romantic read every now and then! 🙂 Luckily, February is not that far away! 

Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday was created by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it is a weekly event in which readers mention one book they are eager to get their hands on!

For my second WoW post, I have chosen….. [drumroll]

Struck by Jennifer Bosworth

Release Date: May 8, 2012

Summary (taken from Goodreads.com):
Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.

Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.

Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.

So this week’s choice is another dystopian novel. This dystopian kick of mine continues…. 

Waiting on Wednesday (1)

This is the very first post for Waiting on Wednesday! YAY! ><

Waiting on Wednesday was created by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and it is a weekly event in which readers select an upcoming release they are super eager to get their hands on. 

So for my very first Waiting on Wednesday post, I have chosen……. [drumroll]

The Selection (The Selection, #1) by Kiera Cass

Release Date: April 24, 2011
Summary (taken from Goodreads.com):

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon. 
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks. 
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself- and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

I am super excited to get my hands on this! I have been on a dystopian kick lately, making this choice pretty easy for me. I hope it does not disappoint!
