Waiting on Wednesday #14

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released!

Here are my picks for the week:
Wicked Nights (Angels of the Dark, #1)
Summary:
From the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld comes a dark, seductive new series featuring angels poised on the brink of destruction....

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless-and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions, at any cost...until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before.

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation-or her ultimate damnation?

Length: 384
Expected Publication Date: June 26th 2012 by HQN Books
Why I'm Waiting:
This may seem sacrilegious to some readers but I've never read a book by this author before and I really want to try this one. I love how it sounds. Thank goodness it's only a 3 week wait.
The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)

Summary:
Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies."
When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer--if he doesn't catch her first.

Length: 608 pages
Expected Publication Date: September 18th 2012 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Why I'm Waiting: 
I love Libba Bray even though I've only read her Gemma Doyle series I love her writing style and this one seems like it will be another awesome read. 
Wake (Watersong, #1) 
Summary:
Fall under the spell of Wake—the first book in an achingly beautiful new series by celebrated author Amanda Hocking—and lose yourself to the Watersong.
Gorgeous. Fearless. Dangerous. They're the kind of girls you envy; the kind of girls you want to hate. Strangers in town for the summer, Penn, Lexi and Thea have caught everyone's attention—but it’s Gemma who’s attracted theirs. She’s the one they’ve chosen to be part of their group.
Gemma seems to have it all—she’s carefree, pretty, and falling in love with Alex, the boy next door. He’s always been just a friend, but this summer they’ve taken their relationship to the next level, and now there’s no going back. Then one night, Gemma’s ordinary life changes forever. She’s taking a late night swim under the stars when she finds Penn, Lexi and Thea partying on the cove. They invite her to join them, and the next morning she wakes up on the beach feeling groggy and sick, knowing something is different.
Suddenly Gemma is stronger, faster, and more beautiful than ever. But her new powers come with a terrifying price. And as she uncovers the truth, she’s is forced to choose between staying with those she loves—or entering a new world brimming with dark hungers and unimaginable secrets.

Why I'm Waiting:
I love mermaids, sirens, selkies etc. and I've heard great things about the author so I think that this will be a great introduction to her writing style.
Now, what are YOU waiting for this Wednesday?

  2. YES to The Diviners! Libba Bray is an insta-read for me, I love all her work and her writing - and this one sounds awesome, too! I really look forward to how she'll create the world of the 20s. Definitely read Beauty Queens if you can, it's a really quirky, funny adventure of a novel.

    Great pick!
