"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...








's Pick:



Title: The Orphan Queen
Author: Jodi Meadows
Series:  Untitled #1
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Publication Date: March 10th, 2015

Add to Goodreads
Wilhelmina has a hundred identities.

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others

Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.

This book had me with... She is a princess. I'll never get over this princess obsession I have. Plus, this is fantasy, and after reading The Kiss of Deception, I've been itching to read more from this genre. Count me in!





's Pick:



Title: Mr. Kiss and Tell
Author: Rob Thomas
Series: Veronica Mars, book #2
Publisher: Vintage/Random House
Publication Date: October 28, 2014

Add to Goodreads
In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman's story.

The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why?

Yes!!! Yesyesyes! I love all things Veronica Mars! I can't wait for more, but there had better be more Logan this time around. I'll probably wait for the audio because OMG Kristen Bell is still perfect as the voice of VM.


What are you desperately waiting for this Wednesday? Let us know in the comments or share a link to your own WoW post!

  13. The Orphan Queen looks amazing even if I don't read a whole lot of fantasy. Definitely picking that one up. I never watched VM. Do you have to have read the series to understand the books? I would definitely listen to Kristen Bell narrate and my commute is about to go from nothing to atrocious, so I'm on the lookout for some good audio books. Great picks!
