Waiting on Wednesday #56

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: 

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow 
Publication Date: September 6th, 2016


Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people lose in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The thick glass of a mason jar cuts deep, and the pain washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.

Every new scar hardens Charlie’s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.

I initially heard about this book in January during my interview with Shannon Parker for her debut book The Girl Who Fell. I immediately looked it up on Goodreads and added it to my TBR. I love books about mental health issues so this seems right up my alley. My favorite book of 2015 was Challenger Deep, another book with a mental health issue base. I hope that I end up liking this book just as much as that one! 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

Spectacle (Menagerie #2) by Rachel Vincent
Publication Date: March 28, 2017

Spectacle (Menagerie, #2)When their coup of Metzger's Menagerie is discovered, Delilah and her fellow cryptids find their newly won freedom brutally stripped away as they are sold into The Savage Spectacle, a private collection of "exotic wildlife." Specializing in ruthless cryptid cage matches, safari-style creature hunts and living party favors, the Spectacle's owner, Willem Vandekamp, caters to the forbidden fetishes of the wealthy and powerful. At the Spectacle, any wish can be granted—for the right price. 

But Vandekamp's closely guarded client list isn't the only secret being kept at the Spectacle. Beneath the beauty and brutality of life in the collection lie much darker truths, and no one is more determined than Delilah to strip the masks from the human monsters and drag all dark things into the light.

Originally, this book was planned for September, so I'm really sad to see that the publication date got pushed back to 2017 since it's so far away...but this book will definitely be worth the wait! Rachel Vincent is one of my favorite authors, and I really enjoyed the first book in this series.  I'm excited to see where Rachel Vincent takes the story and continues to build the amazing world she created in the previous novel.  The cover is gorgeous too, so I definitely want this on my shelf :)
