"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: Ugly Love
Author: Colleen Hoover
Series: n/a
Publisher: Atria Books
Publication Date: August 5th, 2014

Add to Goodreads
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

I have read and loved just about every book put out by Colleen Hoover. I'll admit, this one worries me a tiny bit, but so did her last one, Maybe Someday and I enjoyed it. So I should't worry, right? I'm really looking forward to this messy romance. One more month!! Can't wait! Might end up going audio with this one.

's Pick:

Title: Red Queen
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Series: n/a at this time
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: February 10, 2015

Add to Goodreads
Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own--an ability she didn't know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.

To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard--the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince--and Mare against her own heart.

From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

I just discovered this book late last week on Goodreads, but I'm already so excited for it! That cover is amazing, and that tagline: Power is a dangerous game. Gah! One thing, though...the first time I saw the premise, I read the MC's name as Bone Marrow, I guess because the book is about blood and the name is similar. Whatever. I don't care if her name is Seymour Butts, I'd still read the hell out of this, lol.

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

    here's our WOW

    Janhvi @ The Readdicts

  7. Both books have really strong titles and the cover of the second book is awesome. But I like the sound of Ugly love more; I might check out the author. Nice picks.

  8. I cannot WAIT for Red Queen either!!! It sounds amazing, and that cover.... *_* Why is February so far awayyyyy? D:

  9. I'm so pumped for both of these!! I'm so obsessed with Collen Hoover and the cover for red queen is Stunning!

    Here's My WoW

  10. I started Ugly Love late last night but only got like 5% in. I'm nervous about this one because her books don't usually focus around sex. But, Colleen Hoover is such a gifted author. I'm sure it will be amazing. Oh man, I hope Zachary Webber does the audio for this one!

    Red Queen sounds awesome! I love covers with blood on them. Although, I thought this was a garter covered in blood the first time I saw it.

    Great picks!

  11. I do enjoy Colleen Hoover's books, but I'm not really interested in Ugly Love. I AM quite excited to read Red Queen! Whenever that happens :D I hope you enjoy these books when you read them!

    Have a fabulous week!

    Check out my WoW post!

  12. Red Queen sounds full of potential to be an entertaining traditional fantasy read! It was one of my WoW picks last week. I'm not sure Mare Barrow is that much better a name than Bone Marrow anyway XD

    My WoW pick

  13. I'm so excited for Ugly Love!! Colleen Hoover has not written a book that I haven't loved.
    Red Queen also sounds like it will be amazing. Great choices!!

    Thanks so much for stopping by YA Book Addict. Have a great week!! :)

  14. I don't really read new adult so I won't be reading Ugly Love. But the Red Queen sounds amazing! I want it now! I've added it to my Goodreads. Thanks for sharing.

    Here's my WoW.
