Waiting on Wednesday #21

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: 

The Leaving Season: Cat Jordan 
Publication Date: March 1st, 2016

Middie Daniels calls it the Leaving Season: the time of year when everyone graduates high school, packs up their brand-new suitcases, and leaves home for the first time.

This year Middie’s boyfriend Nate is the one leaving. Nate, who’s so perfect that she can barely believe it. Nate, who makes her better than she is on her own. Nate, who’s promised to come back once he’s finished his gap year volunteering in Central America. And when he does, it’ll be time for Middie to leave, too. With him.

But when a tragedy strikes, Middie’s whole world is set spinning. No one seems to understand just how lost she is… except for Nate’s slacker best friend Lee. Middie and Lee have never gotten along. But with the ground ripped out from under her, Middie is finding that up is down—and that Lee Ryan might be just what she needs to find her footing once more.

This looks like a really amazing contemporary book! It reminds me of A Million Miles Away sort of, except without the military theme. I didn't really like A Million Miles Away, but I think (and hope) that I like this much better. It also doesn't seem to have a theme of lying, which is awesome! 

Cassie's Waiting On: 


Oblivion (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: December 1, 2015

Oblivion (Lux, #1.5)Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it. 

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are. 

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game. 

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

It's no secret that Jen Armentrout is one of my favorite authors, and so I definitely can't wait until I can get my hands on this book.  Being able to read the first three books (if you get the Kindle version...if you get the paperback, you only get Obsidian) in Daemon's POV is going to be EPIC!  Why can't it be December?!
