Waiting on Wednesday (30) If There's No Tomorrow


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.




Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She's ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend, Sebastian, know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be one of opportunities and chances. 

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. 

Now Lena isn't looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian could never forgive her for what happened. 

For what she let happen. 

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?


Why am I waiting?


Umm..it is a JLA book... 'nuff said.

"You think I want to hurt her?  You think it doesn't eat at me that I can't have her?  You think I don't constantly wonder where she is, what she's doing, and if she's safe?"

Carnal Sins page 9

I really hope that Trey doesn't give in to Nick too easily.  Yeah, these are pretty words but he has been a complete jerk to Shaya and she deserves better.

Waiting on Wednesday (29) A Poison Dark and Drowning



Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.




The magicians want her to lead.
The sorcerers want her to lie.
The demons want her blood.
Henrietta wants to save the one she loves.
But will his dark magic be her undoing?

In this seductive and explosive second book in the Kingdom on Fire series, Jessica Cluess delivers her signature mix of magic, passion, and teen warriors fighting for survival. Hand to fans of Victoria Aveyard, Sarah J. Maas, and Kiersten White.

Henrietta doesn’t need a prophecy to know that she’s in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.

Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook’s system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own. So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients’ past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.


Why am I waiting?



Did you read the first book? If you did you would know why but if you didn't the characters in this world will drag you in. Henrietta, Rook, Blackwood and Magnus all have a way of making you want to know what happens to them.

The gabby woman continued, "Your tattoos and muscles are totally feminine, at least, to me. You're tough, but in a womanly way. I hear a lot of guys totally like tattoos on woman nowadays."


Three "totallys." Del wanted to turn it into a drinking game, a sip for each one. She took another drink of beer, then deliberately wiped her mouth on the back of her colored forearm, playing up her differences to get the greatest effect. "Thanks, Grace. That means a lot, coming from you."


What To Do With a Bad Boy page 140


I love Del and how she handles the "well-meaning" Grace. Grace on the other hand I hated and really hoped Mike could see through her act.

The hunger on his face undid her. He looked at her as if he wanted to devour her, as if nothing else existed right now but him and her.

Waiting on Wednesday (28) The Shift of the Tide



Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Free from the hand of a tyrant, the Twelve Kingdoms have thrown all that touch them into chaos. New allies appear--and enemies encroach--from all sides. To survive, they must adapt to this new reality without a moment of doubt... 

Growing up in a country where magic was common as dust, Zynda never had to worry about her enchantments upsetting the balance of nature. But the land beyond the borders of the thirteenth kingdom calls to her. It may be foreign and ugly, but the strangeness is laced with an excitement she has never known. Outside her homeland, Zynda's shapeshifting and sorcery are a potent advantage to nations grasping for dominance--and the thrill of power lures her even as she recognizes the threat she poses to these magic-buffeted realms. 

A ruthless enemy stalks them, promising destruction if she does not fight with all her strength--but if she upsets the equilibrium of the land, all will pay, the common people most of all. And a man of this outside world fascinates her, a mossback with no scrap of magic in him. He knows nothing of the fears and temptations pulling at her. But in his steady embrace she learns she must choose well--for the consequences may reach farther than she ever imagined... 


Why am I waiting?


Zynda has been a minor character in the last two books. It is about time that she got her own story.

"What in the unholy hell was that?


"I have no idea." Tears welled in Lucy's eyes. "I really don't know. We were yelling- I mean really yelling- at each other. Then, all of a sudden, I'm an inch away and we're kissing. It was the craziest things ever." She pressed a hand to her mouth.


The Perfectly Imperfect Match Kindle Location 421


I think I had this conversation with my bff when I was younger. Sometimes the craziest things have the best rewards.

At first, Adrian tried to resist his feelings for Ivy. Now, determined to break the curse that dooms their love, he's vowed to save her and to have her. If only he can persuade her to forgive his past sins. But defying destiny—and surrendering to the smoldering desire between them—will bring consequences and sacrifices they never imagined…

In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.

Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora’s been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.

To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.

Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage. 

She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough. 

Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.

"How about I ask a question instead?" Closing the distance between them until they stood toe to toe, the heat of his body a silent challenge, she said, "Why are you out here, sniping at me?"

"I do not snipe." Her wolf growled.

"Yeah, sure sounds like you're being snippy to me." And then the damn male did that thing he did- he kissed her. As if he had every right to just take her mouth with the wild heat of his, to cup the back of her head, to bite down on her lower lip and suck her upper one into his mouth.

Her toes curled, the rage in her bloodstream translating into pure wild heat as the touch hungry wolf took control.

You gotta hand it to Drew, that man can kiss. Why is Indigo fighting this so hard?
