WOW

Waiting on Wednesdays is a meme started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers to share which books they are looking forward to in the coming weeks and months.  Here's what I'm looking forward to:

Gravity
by Melissa West
Due out August 2012

Okay I know, I haven't been posting covers lately, but this one is just too good to pass up and Entangled is fast becoming one of my favorite publishing companies.  It's due out in August. Here's the synopsis:

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek. 

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed--arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die. 

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know--especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.


And this one sounds good to me because it's so different.

Auracle 
by Gina Rosati
Due out August 2012

On the surface, there’s nothing remarkable about Anna Rogan: She gets average grades, she’s not especially fashionable, she spends most of her time just hanging out with her best friend Rei. But Anna does have a remarkable secret: she has the ability to do astral projection. She uses her out-of-body experiences to explore the universe, until one day when there’s an accident at school and her classmate Taylor gets into her body. Now Taylor’s using her new identity to accuse an innocent boy of murder and she shows no signs of leaving Anna’s body. The only person who knows Anna’s secret is Rei, and as her feelings for Rei grow she must face a future where they can never touch...unless they can find a way to get Taylor out of Anna’s body, stop the murder trial, and discover the true nature of Anna’s power.

  4. Auracle does sound pretty amazing. I'm not sure what I was expecting from that cover art, but not astral projection. Nice picks!

    If you’d like, you can check out my WoW here.
