Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


Lisa’s Pick:

WoW: The Inexplicable Logic of My Life + One Dark ThroneThe Inexplicable Logic of My Life
by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Release Date: March 7th 2017
Publisher: Clarion Books
Genres: Contemporary, Young Adult
Find It: GoodreadsAmazon

From the multi-award-winning author of Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe comes a gorgeous new story about love, identity, and families lost and found.

Sal used to know his place with his adoptive gay father, their loving Mexican-American family, and his best friend, Samantha. But it’s senior year, and suddenly Sal is throwing punches, questioning everything, and realizing he no longer knows himself. If Sal’s not who he thought he was, who is he?

This humor-infused, warmly humane look at universal questions of belonging is a triumph.


Why I’m waiting: This sounds like it’s going to be a beautiful, impacting, and important story. Can’t wait to read it!


Becca’s Pick:

by Kendare Blake
Series: Three Dark Crowns #2
Release Date: September 19th 2017
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Find It: GoodreadsAmazon

With the unforgettable events of the Quickening behind them and the Ascension Year underway, all bets are off. Katharine, once the weak and feeble sister, is stronger than ever before. Arsinoe, after discovering the truth about her powers, must figure out how to make her secret talent work in her favor without anyone finding out. And Mirabella, once thought to be the strongest sister of all and the certain Queen Crowned, faces attacks like never before—ones that put those around her in danger she can’t seem to prevent.
In this enthralling sequel to Kendare Blake’s New York Times bestselling Three Dark Crowns, Fennbirn’s deadliest queens must face the one thing standing in their way of the crown: each other.


Why I’m waiting: Oh my gosh look at that cover :0 isn’t it gorgeous?! I really loved Three Dark Crowns and after that ending I am in desperate need of One Dark Throne!!


What are you waiting on this week?

    Nice picks! The first one is a new to me one! Looking forward to One Dark Throne. I didn’t exactly love the first book, but I’m hoping this one will get me enjoying the series as a whole since I believe it’s a duology!
