Waiting on Wednesday #59

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: 

Metaltown by Kristen Simmons 
Publication Date: September 20th, 2016


The rules of Metaltown are simple: Work hard, keep your head down, and watch your back. You look out for number one, and no one knows that better than Ty. She’s been surviving on the factory line as long as she can remember. But now Ty has Colin. She’s no longer alone; it’s the two of them against the world. That’s something even a town this brutal can’t take away from her. Until it does.

Lena’s future depends on her family’s factory, a beast that demands a ruthless master, and Lena is prepared to be as ruthless as it takes if it means finally proving herself to her father. But when a chance encounter with Colin, a dreamer despite his circumstances, exposes Lena to the consequences of her actions, she’ll risk everything to do what’s right.

In Lena, Ty sees an heiress with a chip on her shoulder. Colin sees something more. In a world of disease and war, tragedy and betrayal, allies and enemies, all three of them must learn that challenging what they thought was true can change all the rules.

I love books with strong female protagonists and that's exactly what both Lena and Ty seem like to me. I'm excited to read about this new world because it looks so unique already! 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

The Midnight Star (The Young Elites #3) by Marie Lu
Publication Date: October 11, 2016


The Midnight Star (The Young Elites, #3)There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all that she’s achieved.

Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk, but every Elite and the very world they live in. In order to save herself and preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest—though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.

Bestselling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina's story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series. 

Look at that gorgeous cover!! This book sounds utterly fantastic and I can't wait to see how Adelina's journey ends.  After the ending events of the previous book, The Midnight Star will definitely have a different, darker feel to it, and I'm looking forward to seeing the direction Marie Lu takes with the story.  This is a must-read for this year and should go on your TBR right away!

  1. OOh nice! I can't wait for Marie's as well! Though I still need to read The Rose Society, it's been my "thing" this year to wait to finish up all my trilogies that are ending. Duologies too! LOL!
