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.

Her job description is the “tracking and apprehension of mentally-fractured killers.” What this really means in FBI profiler Jace Valchek’s brave new world—one in which only one percent of the population is human—is that a woman’s work is never done. And real is getting stranger every day…

Jace has been ripped from her reality by David Cassius, the vampire head of the NSA. He knows that she’s the best there in the business, and David needs her help in solving a series of gruesome murders of vampires and werewolves. David’s world—one that also includes lycanthropes and golems—is one with little knowledge of mental illness. An insane serial killer is a threat the NSA has no experience with. But Jace does. Stranded in a reality where Bela Lugosi is a bigger box office draw than Bruce Willis and every full moon is Mardi Gras, Jace must now hunt down a fellow human before he brings the entire planet to the brink of madness. Or she may never see her own world again…

Can't wait for this one! This series is really interesting since Jace is in an alternate reality!! So different from being in reality with supernatural creatures and whatnot!

In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous.

Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves.

One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens.

Another one I am really excited about! I looooved the first book and this one promises to be good!

    Here's mine:

  6. I've never read the D. D. Barant series but I am definitely waiting for the new book by Kady Cross.

    My WoWs are for Fair Game by Patricia Briggs and Magic Under Stone by Jaclyn Dolamore. Happy reading!

  7. Back for the Undead I had't heard of until now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I've read the steampunk chronicles prequel, but not book 1. I should really do that.

  8. I haven't gotten to either series yet but they both look good. I must say once again, too many books.... you know the rest:) Have a great week! Shari over at My Neurotic Book Affair

  9. I WANT them both!

    I LOVE Finley Jane and the novella and the book. I've been looking forward to this book for a long time and cannot wait for it to come out!

    Fantastic choices!

  10. Looking at your blog always makes me want to squeeze in more adult genre paranormal books into my YA reading pile. Have you read Richelle Mead's Succubus Blues series? I LOVE them! Of course, I think I would love her grocery list, haha.
    Great picks!

  12. I really don't like the cover for The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, it doesn't seem as sophisticated as the other one. I hope you enjoy them all, Jessica!

  13. Gah! I can't wait for The Girl in the Clockwork Collar!!! I loved the first book as well. :) I really hope we get to see it on Netgalley soon!

  14. I haven't heard of the first book, but damn it sounds good. I will be adding it to my reading wishlist and for The Girl in the Clockwork Collar, I still haven't got myself a copy of the first book yet to read
