Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine. It features eagerly anticipated up coming book releases.

Once (Eve #2)
By Anna Carey
Publication Date: 3 July 2012
Sixteen years have passed since a deadly virus wiped out most of the Earth’s population. After learning of the terrifying part she and her classmates were fated to play in the rebuilding of New America, eighteen-year-old Eve fled to the wilds and Califia, a haven for women determined to live outside the oppressive rule of the king of New America. However, her freedom came at a price: she was forced to leave Caleb, the boy she loves, wounded and alone at the city gates. Eve quickly learns that Califia may not be as safe as it seems and soon finds herself in the City of Sand and the palace of the king. There she uncovers the real reason he was so intent on her capture, and the unbelievable role he intends her to fill. When she is finally reunited with Caleb, they will enact a plan as daring as it is dangerous. But will Eve once again risk everything—her freedom, her life—for love? 

Brimming with danger and star-crossed romance, and featuring a vivid dystopian landscape, this electrifying follow-up to Eve, which bestselling author Lauren Kate called “a gripping, unforgettable adventure—and a fresh look at what it means to love” is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes adventure of The Hunger Games and the irresistible love story of Romeo and Juliet.

Why am I waiting on this?
I'm still trying to get a copy of Eve (I know, horror of horrors that I haven't read it yet) and trust me, I really really want to because of all the amazing reviews I've read. Maybe for Christmas...if I'm lucky. Anyone got a spare copy lying around? With Lauren Kate (one of my favorite authors) saying it's a must read and it being recommend for people who loved The Hunger Games (which I did!) I just have to read both Eve and Once as soon as its released.

Everneath (Everneath #1)
By Brodi Ashton
Publication: 24 January 2012

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...

Why am I waiting on this?
First of all, isn't this cover to die for? I'm in love with it! So pretty. The story line looks really good. It's intriguing and sounds very exciting. It also sounds a little heart breaking and I am kinda a sucker when it comes sad story lines. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for this when it comes out.

What are you waiting on this week? Leave a link and I'll check out your Wow!
