Waiting on Wednesday #12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 

Firsts: Laurie Elizabeth Flynn 
Publication Date: January 5th, 2016

Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward, fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time- the kind Mercedes never had herself.

Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy- so far. Her absentee mother isn’t home nearly enough to know about Mercedes’ extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won’t even say the word “sex” until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn’t bank on Angela’s boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn- or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.

When Mercedes’ perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her reputation and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process.

As soon as I read the description for this book, I was hooked! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and I still can't. It looks funny, and serious and maybe sexy? This is a contemporary that seems right up me alley so I'll definitely be preordering it! 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

The Rose Society (The Young Elites #2) by Marie Lu
Publication Date: October 13, 2015 


The Rose Society (The Young Elites #2)Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.

Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?

I absolutely adored the first novel in this series (The Young Elites), and I feel like the wait for this one has been so, so long.  I've had this pre-ordered from the minute it went up on Amazon.  I can't wait to see where the Marie Lu takes the story!


  1. Nice! I'm looking forward to the Rose Society as well! Hope you love both of these!

    Here's my WoW

  2. Firsts was really good! Definitely more serious than I had expected, but still a book I plan to add to my library in January. :)
