Waiting on Wednesday

I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.


Ancient lore leads to present danger in the final book in the dark and sexy paranormal romance trilogy about a descendent of Medusa, set in a richly reimagined New Orleans.

Her fate is not set in stone.

Having temporarily defeated Athena, Ari races to break the gorgon curse that has plagued the women in her family for centuries. Her one lead sends her on a quest for the Hands of Zeus, an ancient relic last seen in the charge of New 2’s ruling elite, the Novem. But if there is one thing that Athena desires as much as revenge, it’s the Hands of Zeus—and Athena always gets what she wants.

Before either can locate the Hands, the statue goes missing, and a trail of blood follows those who once protected the relic’s secrets. Ari knows that her city, her friends, Sebastian—her life—depend upon her finding the statue before Athena. And with rumors an ancient power is on the rise, that may not be her only concern…


Love the cover for this one! Finally read the second book earlier this year...or just too many books ago this year! It's definitely been an interesting series with a twist on Greek gods and what not! Can't wait to see the ending!

TITLE: The Wicked Within
AUTHOR: Kelly Keaton

PUBLISHER: Simon Pulse
GENRE: Paranormal YA
RELEASE DATE: September 17, 2013


Zombies stalk the night. Forget blood and brains. These monsters hunger for human souls. Sadly, they've got mine… 

Alice Bell has lost so much. Family. Friends. A home. She thought she had nothing else to give. She was wrong.

After a new zombie attack, strange things begin to happen to her. Mirrors come to life, and the whispers of the dead assault her ears. But the worst? A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do very wicked things.

She's never needed her team of zombie slayers more, but ultra bad-boy Cole Holland, the leader and her boyfriend, suddenly withdraws from her…from everyone. Now, with her best friend Kat at her side, Ali must kill the zombies, uncover Cole's secret and learn to fight the darkness.

But the clock is ticking…and if she fails at a single task, they're all doomed.


Another series I absolutely adore!! Can't remember what happened in the first one much since I read that one as an early ARC, so hopefully it will all come back to me once I get started!

TITLE: Through the Zombie Glass
AUTHOR: Gena Showalter

PUBLISHER: Harlequin Teen
GENRE: Paranormal YA
RELEASE DATE: September 24, 2013

  1. The first is new to me but it sounds like one I wouldn't want to miss. Both covers look great. I haven't read Alice in Zombieland yet but I love retellings!

  2. I haven't heard of the first one but sounds really interesting. I wasn't a great fan of Alice in Zombieland so I'll pass this one. Great picks!

  4. All hails to the first pick! I love mythology books, and Medusa is definitvely a creature I love more then some others. I think the first of this series is on my pile somewhere, and I hope I can get to this thrid one soon, because the cover is just freaking gorgeous!
    As for the second pick, it's definitvely not for me. I'm very cautious about zombies because I ain't good with gore, and combining it with the Alice in Wonderland story is just.. not. I hope everyone waiting will enjoy, though. I heard it has many fans! =)

  15. I love Greek Mythology so the first one looks fantastic. Seems like a lot of mystery and action would be going on in that one. I haven't read Alice in Zombieland yet, but I really want to. Great picks! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.
