Waiting on Wednesday #63

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: 

Replica (Replica #1) by Lauren Oliver 
Publication Date: October 4th, 2016 


Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. 'A sickly child', her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father's connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she's always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father's name seems inextricably linked to it.

Amidst the frenzy outside the institute's walls, Lyra - or number 24 as she is known as at Haven - and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven's purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever...

I have never read a book quite like this one before! I heard you can read it straight through or read Gemma's half and then Lyra's half. I still am not quite sure how it is supposed to go. Anyway, I am super excited to get to it because I think it will be so unique! Also Lauren Oliver was announced to be at NYCC this year so hopefully I can read it before then. 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

Cursed (Cursed #1) by Jessica Sorensen
Publication Date: October 18, 2016


Cursed (Cursed # 1)Beautiful, popular, talented, and wealthy, Remi and her three best friends have always lived seemingly perfect lives.

But at exactly midnight on the day when the youngest of her friends turns seventeen, Remi discovers nothing about her life, and her friend’s lives is what it seems.

Beneath their beauty resides a deadly darkness tied to paranormal bloodlines.

Remi is now cursed with reaper powers and fights daily not to steal souls. And it doesn't help that she's drawn to Cameron, a sexy, charming, yet dangerous Grim Reaper.

Will she give into the evil or will she manage to find good in her curse?

First off, I'm so in love with this cover...but also this story sounds like so much fun! Jessica Sorensen definitely knows how to tell a good story, and I know this one will certainly be a good one.  Jessica has promised that Remi and her friends are kick-butt heroines, which makes me even more excited to check this one out!


  1. Oooh Cursed sounds good!! Definitely my kind of read! Seeing a lot of Replica too! Hope you both enjoy your picks!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I've been seeing Replica making its way around the blogosphere! Oliver's books just don't seem to work for me, and that's okay. I'd not heard of Cursed before though, it looks interesting. :D I hope you enjoy these books when you get a chance to read them!

    Have a fabulous week. :)
