Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday

 A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that people are eagerly anticipating.

My choice for Waiting on Wednesday this week is:


Winter by Marissa Meyer 

Publication: November 10th 2015 by Feiwel and Friends, 800 pages 
   
Here is the stunning conclusion to the national bestselling Lunar Chronicles, inspired by Snow White.

When Princess Winter was thirteen, the rumor around the Lunar court was that her glamour would soon be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana. In a fit of jealousy, Levana disfigured Winter. Four years later, Winter has sworn off the use of her glamour altogether. Despite her scars, Winter’s natural beauty, her grace, and her gentleness are winning admiration from the Lunar people that no amount of mind-control could achieve.



Winter despises her stepmother, but has never dreamed of standing up to her. That is, until she realizes that she may be the only one with the power to confront the queen.
 

Can Cinder, Prince Kai, Scarlet, Wolf, Cress, Thorne, Princess Winter, and the palace guard Jacin find their happily ever afters? Fans will LOVE this amazing conclusion to the series.
 


The Next Together by Lauren James 

Publication: September 3rd 2015 by Walker, 320 pages

How many times can you lose the person you love? 

A powerful and epic debut novel for teenagers about reincarnation and the timelessness of first love from a talented young writer.
 

Teenagers Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again. Each time their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated.
 

But why do they keep coming back? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace?
 
Maybe the next together will be different...

In 1745, during the siege of Carlisle, in 1854 on the way to the Crimea, in 2019 and 2039 as first scientists and then students uncovering and rediscovering a dangerous plot, and in multiple timescales between, they are thrown together, with no memory of having met one another before, only an irresistible instinct that they must be with one another against all odds – even while the epic events unfolding all around seem sure to tear them apart.


I'm undecided on if I like the Winter cover or not but 800 pages! Ahhh! Also look at how beautiful the cover for The Next Together is.

  2. I'm really looking forward to Winter even though I still haven't read both Scarlet and Cress (I'll definitely get to those soon). 800 pages is really not my usual read but if it's good, I guess it's okay :D and this is the first time I see The Next Together. It sounds pretty good. Hope you'll enjoy these books when you get to read them! :)

    1. You should definitely read Scarlet and Cress. 800 pages is a lot but it'll probably awesome so who cares.

  3. 800 pages! Holy moly! And Fairest was so short! I am sure it won't feel like 800. I haven't checked back for a cover in a while. I absolutely love it! Thanks for posting it/ reminding me.
