Waiting on Wednesday

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

In a world where disease has been eliminated, the only way to die is to be randomly killed (“gleaned”) by professional reapers (“scythes”). Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been selected to be scythe’s apprentices, and—despite wanting nothing to do with the vocation—they must learn the art of killing and come to understand the necessity of what they do.

Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe’s apprentice. And when it becomes clear that the winning apprentice’s first task will be to glean the loser, Citra and Rowan are pitted against one another in a fight for their lives.

This one sounds rather intriguing! I love a good battle to the death thing but having things go totally haywire! LOL!

TITLE: Scythe
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
GENRE: Dystopian YA
RELEASE DATE: November 22, 2016

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Souls of Fire novels comes the second in the futuristic fantasy series that will make you want to keep the lights on...

When the bombs that stopped the species war tore holes in the veil between worlds, they allowed entry to the Others. Now, a hundred years later, humans and shifters alike live in artificially lit cities designed to keep the darkness at bay....

The humanoid supersoldiers known as the déchet were almost eradicated by the war. Ever since, Tiger has tried to live her life in peace in hiding. But in the wake of her discovery that Central City’s children are being kidnapped and experimented on, Tiger’s conscience won’t let her look the other way.

The key to saving them lies within the walls of a pharmaceutical company called Winter Halo. But as she learns more about the facility, Tiger’s mission is derailed by a complication: Winter Halo’s female security guards are being systematically attacked by an unknown force.

Now Tiger must summon all her gifts to stop those responsible for both atrocities—no matter the cost to herself...

I looove Keri's books! Her series are just incredible and always blow me away! If you're looking for Urban Fantasy at it's finest, pick up one of her series!! I should hopefully be getting this one for review soon! So excited! Wish I would've taken notes on books wayyy earlier than I did! LOL!

TITLE: Winter Halo
AUTHOR: Keri Arthur 
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
RELEASE DATE: December 6, 2016 



  1. Ooh this looks very interesting! Here's my WoW

  2. Winter Halo sounds good, that series has been on my TBR pile for a while now. Scythe on the other hand could be heartbreaking- especially if they are best friends or in a relationship.

    My WOW

  3. Neal Shusterman is one of my all time favorite authors, and I am looking forward to reading Scythe too. I will most likely wait for a couple of the books to be released though. He is sometimes not to good at releasing series books in a timely manner. I hope that you enjoy it.

  4. I love reading about reapers and that is a fab cover.

  5. I'm not really big into either of these books, but I love the covers!

    Sam @ Paper Cuts

    My WOW

  6. I started reading Scythe and I was loving it! I hope I get to finish it soon, and I hope you love both of these books ^_^

  7. Both of these sounds great!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!

  8. I love Keri Arthur's books! I didn't know about this one.

  9. Great picks! I am so excited for Winter Halo! And Scythe wasn't on my radar before, but the publisher sent me a copy and it sounds really interesting. Definitely on my must-read now.

  10. Both of these are a little unfamiliar to me! I like the cover of Scythe though. :D I hope you enjoy these books when you get a chance to read them!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a great week, Jessica. =)

  11. I think I saw Scythe on EW or NG, or both? For some reason, I've never read anything by him. Winter Halo sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy reading both of your picks, Jessica.

  12. Scyhe sounds absolutely amazing! I haven't read any reviews on it yet but I'm hoping that the book is as good as it sounds. If only it had a better cover.
    Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a good week :)
