"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: Immaculate
Author: Katelyn Detweirler
Series: n/a
Publisher: Viking Childrens
Publication Date: May 26th, 2015

Add to Goodreads
Mina is seventeen. A virgin. And pregnant.

Mina is top of her class, girlfriend to the most ambitious guy in school, able to reason and study her way through anything. But when she suddenly finds herself pregnant—despite having never had sex—her orderly world collapses. Almost nobody believes Mina’s claims of virginity. Her father assumes that her boyfriend is responsible; her boyfriend believes she must have cheated on him. As news of Mina’s story spreads, there are those who brand her a liar. There are those who brand her a heretic. And there are those who believe that miracles are possible—and that Mina’s unborn child could be the greatest miracle of all.
I am fascinated by the description of this book, and I'm not sure why. Everything about that last sentence screams that it will be preachy. I don't do preachy. Religion is not a part of my life. I do not believe in God. However, I do not believe in Vampires either, butI like books about them! From what I've seen through goodread status's, readers believe Immaculate will be a retelling of The Virgin Mary. I'm completely cool with that, as long as it doesn't turn into a sermon. Crossing my fingers, because otherwise, this one sounds pretty good. :)




's Pick:



Title: End of Days
Author: Susan Ee
Series: Penryn and the End of Days, book #3
Publisher: Skyscape
Publication Date: May 12, 2015

Add to Goodreads
End of Days is the explosive conclusion to Susan Ee’s bestselling Penryn & the End of Days trilogy.

After a daring escape from the angels, Penryn and Raffe are on the run. They’re both desperate to find a doctor who can reverse the twisted changes inflicted by the angels on Raffe and Penryn’s sister. As they set off in search of answers, a startling revelation about Raffe’s past unleashes dark forces that threaten them all.

When the angels release an apocalyptic nightmare onto humans, both sides are set on a path toward war. As unlikely alliances form and strategies shift, who will emerge victorious? Forced to pick sides in the fight for control of the earthly realm, Raffe and Penryn must choose: Their own kind, or each other?

Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh! I can't believe it's almost here! And that it's the end! What will I do with myself when this series is over?!? It's the best, most kickass angel series EVAR!!!! BUT, I heard that she's working on something new! Eeeek!!! I can only imagine how kickass it will be after this series! =D


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

  7. Immaculate sounds really interesting and unlike anything I've read before. I love the cover as well. I've been meaning to pick up the Angelfall series. Maybe I'll just wait until the last one is out so that I can binge read!

  9. END OF DAYSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!! Seriously need that book. I was surprised to see that it was the final installment, for some reason I was under the impression that there would be five books. Have no idea why I thought that though lol

  10. Immaculate sounds pretty amazing and unique. I have never read a book about Religion before, but it really sounds like some kind of retelling of The Virgin Mary. But I think the idea great, just to think about what would happen if exactly that would happen today, when you get what I mean...
