"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...



Add to Goodreads
Title:  Nobody
Author:  Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Series:  n/a
Publisher:  EgmontUSA
Publication Date:  January 22, 2013

There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away.

That’s why they make the perfect assassins.

The Institute finds these people when they’re young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated.

Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute’s monitoring. But now they’ve ID’ed her and send seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her. Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can’t make the hit. It’s as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are—because no one else ever notices them.


Why I'm waiting:  Well, the cover was just revealed, so that always ups the anticpation level for me.  But mostly, it's that word "assassins"...gets me every time.  I loved Barnes' Every Other Day, and though I haven't read her Raised by Wolves series, I've heard great things.  I have the first book on my shelf, but I haven't made it to it yet...hopefully, I'll get to it soon.  Anyway, I'm really excited for this one.  It has the possibility for a series written all over it, but I'm kind of hoping for a stand-alone myself.  Either way, I'll still be picking this one up as soon as it's released.

  25. So I haven't visited your blog in forever. I feel horrible for that! :( I'm a shit face it's true. I've just been crazy busy this summer. I haven't visited to many blogs for commenting. Hoping as fall starts and things calm down, I'll have more time for lurking.

    Um, I never heard of this, and I loved raised by wolves. I'm adding this to my goodreads asap. :o)

    Hope you and the fam are doing well!
