Waiting on Wednesday (148)

Hey,

This week I'm waiting for...
Reawakened (Reawakened, #1)
Release Date: August 25, 2015
When seventeen-year-old Lilliana Young enters the Metropolitan Museum of Art one morning during spring break, the last thing she expects to find is a live Egyptian prince with godlike powers, who has been reawakened after a thousand years of mummification.

And she really can't imagine being chosen to aid him in an epic quest that will lead them across the globe to find his brothers and complete a grand ceremony that will save mankind.

But fate has taken hold of Lily, and she, along with her sun prince, Amon, must travel to the Valley of the Kings, raise his brothers, and stop an evil, shape-shifting god named Seth from taking over the world.

Book Haul (#100)

Hey,

I hope you have all been brilliant these past few weeks and I'm really sorry for having no reviews up but there will definitely be one next week don't you worry. I will also be doing my best to get as much good content out for you guys because I've really been letting everyone down lately, but thank you for having patience with me!

This week I bought and borrowed:
Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles, #1)Black Ice
Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles #1) by Ellen Oh - Bought -
I saw this book in the charity shop and knew that it had not been published in the UK so I snapped it up. I've heard mixed reviews but the premise sounds interesting so I'll give it a go.
Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick - Borrowed
This is the first book I've managed to finish in one sitting since November! I like Becca Fitzpatrick and felt that this was pretty good. Not mind-blowing, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and by the end had me wanting to laugh and cry at the same time. The review will be up soon!

Waiting on Wednesday (147)

Hey,

This week I'm waiting for...
Endangered
Release Date: April 21, 2015
The one secret she cares about keeping—her identity—is about to be exposed. Unless Lauren "Panda" Daniels—an anonymous photoblogger who specializes in busting classmates and teachers in compromising positions—plays along with her blackmailer's little game of Dare or . . . Dare.

But when the game turns deadly, Panda doesn't know what to do. And she may need to step out of the shadows to save herself . . . and everyone else on the Admirer's hit list.

Waiting on Wednesday (146)

Hey,

This week I'm waiting for...
99 Days
Release Date: April 21, 2015
Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

Waiting on Wednesday (145)

Hey,

This week I'm waiting for...
Rogue (Talon, #2)
Release Date: April 28, 2015
Ember Hill left the dragon organization Talon to take her chances with rebel dragon Cobalt and his crew of rogues. But Ember can't forget the sacrifice made for her by the human boy who could have killed her—Garret Xavier Sebastian, a soldier of the dragonslaying Order of St. George, the boy who saved her from a Talon assassin, knowing that by doing so, he'd signed his own death warrant. 

Determined to save Garret from execution, Ember must convince Cobalt to help her break into the Order's headquarters. With assassins after them and Ember's own brother helping Talon with the hunt, the rogues find an unexpected ally in Garret and a new perspective on the underground battle between Talon and St. George. 

A reckoning is brewing and the secrets hidden by both sides are shocking and deadly. Soon Ember must decide: Should she retreat to fight another day…or start an all-out war?

Waiting on Wednesday (144)

Hey,

This week I'm waiting for...
The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak
It all begins when Ana Watson's little brother, Clayton, secretly ditches the quiz bowl semifinals to go to the Washingcon sci-fi convention on what should have been a normal, résumé-building school trip.

If slacker Zak Duquette hadn't talked up the geek fan fest so much, maybe Clayton wouldn't have broken nearly every school rule or jeopardized Ana’s last shot at freedom from her uptight parents.

Now, teaming up with Duquette is the only way for Ana to chase down Clayton in the sea of orcs, zombies, bikini-clad princesses, Trekkies, and Smurfs. After all, one does not simply walk into Washingcon.

But in spite of Zak's devil-may-care attitude, he has his own reasons for being as lost as Ana-and Ana may have more in common with him than she thinks. Ana and Zak certainly don’t expect the long crazy night, which begins as a nerdfighter manhunt, to transform into so much more…
