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.

Once the night comes . . .

Will Thorne is living a nightmare, his sanity slowly being drained away by a force he can't control. His talents have made him the perfect assassin for hire. But as he loses his grip on reality, there is no calming him—until he finds his next target: the mysterious Holly Evernight.

Love must cast aside the shadows . . .

Holly cannot fathom who would put a contract on her life, yet the moment she touches Will, the connection between them is elemental, undeniable—and she's the only one who can tame his bouts of madness. But other assassins are coming for Holly. Will must transform from killer to protector and find the man who wants Holly dead . . . or his only chance for redemption will be lost.

Omigosh, omigosh, OMIGOSH!! I soooooooooooooooooooooo, soooooooooooooooooooooo cannot wait for this one to come out! It took a second go-around for me to like this series, but soooo glad I did, because I basically LOVE this series now! And after getting the setup of how these two have already met, I am DYING to read their book! Nuff said!

TITLE: Evernight
AUTHOR: Kristen Callihan

GENRE: Paranormal Romance
RELEASE DATE: August 26,2014

Ebony is not quite human. She’s descended from Avena, an otherworldly realm caught between warring light and dark forces. But she doesn’t feel like she’s in danger . . . until her boyfriend Nathaneal almost dies protecting her. Now Nathaneal is in jail for revealing his powers to the enemy, and Ebony’s only ally is jealous Jordan, who’d love to break her and Nathaneal up.

Then Jordan’s machinations lead Ebony into the treacherous heart of Avena itself. She has no choice but to navigate this perilous world—or die trying.

Fantastical and emotionally powerful, this epic inter-world romance series will appeal to fans of Laini Taylor and Cynthia Hand.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Marianne Curley's books! You all don't know how ecstatic I was last year when I learned she was coming back into the book world! Old Magic was by far one of my most favorite reads as a teen! And I loved her Guardians of Time trilogy too! Can't wait to get back into this new series!

TITLE: Broken
AUTHOR: Marianne Curley

PUBLISHER: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
GENRE: Paranormal YA
RELEASE DATE: November 4, 2014
