"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 Fill-In Boyfriend
Author: Kasie West
Series: n/a
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: May 5th, 2015

Add to Goodreads
When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend— two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party — three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

I know Jen featured this one back in November sometime, but it's Kasie West! And I kind of adore her writing. WOW is hard for me, because Jen is on it.. and she grabs up those titles way before I even see the covers. lol. I figure no one cares if we both want the same books right? It get's double the sharing.

Everything about this one screams I will love it. I can't wait! :)





's Pick:



Title: The Sin Eater's Daughter
Author: Melinda Salisbury
Series: The Sin Eater's Daughter, book #1
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Publication Date: February 24, 2015

Add to Goodreads
Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.

She’s the executioner.

As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.

However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

Oh my gawd! Is that cover not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen? And the book itself sounds just as amazing. I mean, the girl has the power to kill with her touch! Also, I love stories where the girl falls for the guard. I really shouldn't start any new series until I finish some others, but I can't help myself where this novel is concerned. =)


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

  1. April: The Fill-In Boyfriend was featured on my blog too a few weeks ago. I haven't read a Kasie West book, but I heard she's amazing, therefore, definitely need to read her newest book!

    Jen: That book sounds great! I can't wait to see the world-building and this kingdom and everything. I hope the romance goes well in it. I need to add this to my GR TBR.
