Waiting on Wednesday 03/02/11

WoW is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

by Kady Cross
genre: Teen Fiction/Paranormal/Romance
release: May 2011
She thought there was something wrong with her. She was right.
Finley Jayne has known for quite some time that she isn’t ‘normal,’ but when she beats up the son of her employer and is forced to flee, she stumbles into a world where there are bigger freaks than her. They take her in, treat her like family and demand her trust. How can Finley trust them when she can’t trust herself? And why is she drawn to the powerful Griffin as well as the dangerous Jack? She has to get herself under control before she gets into trouble she can’t get out of.

Griffin King is one of the most powerful men in Britain but he couldn’t save his best friend from almost dying. He is determined to save Finley and help her become the person he knows she can be, but there’s evil afoot in London. Machines have attacked humans under the orders of a nefarious criminal called The Machinist. He has sworn to protect his country against such a threat, but he’s never faced any foe like this. However, when he discovers The Machinist’s connection to his past, Griffin vows to end the villain once and for all — but he’ll need the help of all his friends, including the beautiful Finley Jayne – the girl in the steel corset.
This beautiful cover is reminiscent of the LUXE series

By C.K. Kelly Martin
release: Sept 2011
Ashlyn Baptiste is falling. One moment she was nothing—no memories, no self—and then suddenly, she's plummeting through a sea of stars. Is she in a coma? She doesn't remember dying, and she has no memories of the life she left behind. All she knows is that she's trapped in a consciousness without a body and she's spending every moment watching a stranger.
Breckon Cody's on the edge. He's being ripped apart by grief so intense it literally hurts to breath. On the surface, Breckon is trying to hold it together for his family and his girlfriend, but underneath he's barely hanging on.
Even though she didn't know him in life, Ashlyn sees Breckon's pain, and she's determined to find a way help him. As her own distressing memories emerge from the darkness, she struggles to communicate with the boy who can't see her, but whose life is suddenly intertwined with hers.
Kind of a paranormal/contemporary teen drama combo.

by Michelle Hodkin
release: Sept 2011
Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. There is.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been
through, she can fall in love. She’s wrong.
This one just sounds intriguing.

What are you waiting for?

Cassandra! :D said...

Oh my gosh! This looks so good!!

Book Soulmates said...

I'm totally adding the first one to my wishlist & TBR :)

So crushing on that cover too!

Christina / Book Addict said...

All of these books sound great, but I am especially excited for Steel Corset. It sounds very steampunk-ish and I love premise. Plus, that cover is fabulous! Great picks!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Oh I want these too. I'm really curious about the Unbecoming of Mara. Love that cover.

PS Alyssa... check your e-mail. ;)

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

Yup, definitely looking forward to all of these.

Paranormal/contemporary teen dramas are gaining in popularity. To be file under: Things that make you say hmmmm

Tales of Whimsy said...

I covet that dress :)

Unknown said...

The Girl in the Steel Corset is already on my list, and the other two books look interesting, I'll have to do further investigating!

One book that has been on my radar is, A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan, which I managed to grab while it was available on Net Galley...score!

But, now I can't find cover art to go with my review, and I'm waiting for the publisher to respond... It doesn't come out until August, but I fell in love with this disturbing story... So very different!

Dottie :)

The Girl in the Steel Corset and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer have been on my 'I need it now' list for a while, but I am now adding My Beating Teenage Heart because it sounds so good.
