"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 selections are...




Add to Goodreads
Title: Premeditated
Author: Josin L. McQuein
Series: n/a
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: October 8, 2013

A week ago, Dinah’s cousin Claire cut her wrists.

Five days ago, Dinah found Claire’s diary and discovered why.

Three days ago, Dinah stopped crying and came up with a plan.

Two days ago, she ditched her piercings and bleached the black dye from her hair.

Yesterday, knee socks and uniform plaid became a predator’s camouflage.

Today, she’ll find the boy who broke Claire.

By tomorrow, he’ll wish he were dead.





I read Josin's debut Arclight earlier this year and was in awe of the story and how unique it was.  And now I'm eagerly awaiting Premeditated...I love a great revenge story, even more so when murder or foul-play is afoot!






Add to Goodreads
Title: Right of Way
Author: Lauren Barnholdt
Series: n/a
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: July 9, 2013

Can a road trip repair a romance gone wrong? Find out in this standalone companion to Lauren Barnholdt’s Two-way Street.

Here are Peyton and Jace, meeting on vacation. Click! It’s awesome, it’s easy, it’s romantic. This is the real deal.

Unless it isn’t. Because when you’re in love, you don’t just stop calling one day. And you don’t keep secrets. Or lie. And when your life starts falling apart, you’re supposed to have the other person to lean on.

Here are Peyton and Jace again, broken up but thrown together on a road trip. One of them is lying about the destination. One of them is pretending not to be leaving something behind. And neither of them is prepared for what’s coming on the road ahead…




Jen just picked up Two Way Street by this author from the used bookstore, and though I haven't read it yet, I'm eager to check out more from this author.  And apparently, she's written quite a lot!  PLUS, road trip book, yay!  =)







What are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so we can stop by!

  8. I can't believe I forgot about Premeditated because when I saw it here, I went YES YES I WANT! It looks amazing. I heard not so good things about Two Way Street so I hope Right of Way will be good because it certainly looks good. Happy reading, you guys :)

  9. I'm so excited for both of these! I have never read a Lauren Barnholdt book *hides in shame* but I'm hoping Right of Way will be my first. I didn't get a chance to read Josin's debut, Arclight, but it looked so amazing. Definitely going to be reading Premeditated though!

  14. The blurb for premeditated takes the "5 days ago , 4 days ago, etc" thing too far I think. Doing it twice was cool but the whole blurb being that way gets too repetitive IMO. I hope you like it - I still need to read Arclight also!

  17. Super excited for Premeditated. The synopsis just has me dying to know what this boy did to Claire and what Dinah plans to do to him. I just got Two-Way Street and it sounds great! Might check out this companion novel after I finish it. Thanks for stopping by!
