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: Wonder Woman: Warbringer + Because of LilaWonder Woman: Warbringer
by Leigh Bardugo
Series: DC Icons #1
Release Date: August 29th 2017
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Find It: Goodreads

She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .
Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.
Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.


 

Why I’m waiting: Aside from the obvious facts that it’s WONDER WOMAN and LEIGH BARDUGO, seriously, how amazing does this book sound?! I want it sooooo badly!!!!

Becca’s Pick:

WoW: Wonder Woman: Warbringer + Because of LilaBecause of Lila
by Abbi Glines
Series: Sea Breeze Meets Rosemary Beach #2
Release Date: July 11th 2017
Publisher: Abbi Glines
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Find It: Goodreads

Prim, proper, classic good girl, and her least favorite label - icy.
Lila Kate Carter has heard them all. The last one, being the newest. She is not icy. She just doesn’t care for Cruz Kerrington and his spoiled, selfish, careless ways. That doesn’t make her icy, that makes him a jerk!
Tired of being labeled and doing what is expected of her, Lila Kate leaves Rosemary Beach, Florida ready for an adventure. Wanting to recreate herself, find a new path, and become something more.
Eli Hardy is tired of women who always act the same, do the same thing and expect the same thing. He's ready to swear off women until he can get the rest of his life together.
Two weeks into his no-women-rule he meets Lila. She’s so damn sweet and polite. Like she walked right out of an etiquette book. But he’d already been drunk before she walked in so there was a good chance she might not be as stunning and perfect as he thinks. He’s just too drunk to worry about that.
The next morning, he swears he can still smell her on his skin. He just can’t remember why or what happened after that third dance.
Their worlds are about to collide, and so are the secrets and lies.


 

Why I’m waiting: I am such a huge Abbi Glines fan and as soon as I heard she had a series that meshed the children of my favorites from both the Rosemary Beach and Sea Breeze series I was SOLD!! Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

 
 

What are you waiting on this week?
