"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 Dark Water
Author: Seth Fishman
Series: The Well's End #2
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Publication Date: March 3rd, 2015

Add to Goodreads
To escape Blake Sutton’s army at the end of the enthralling The Well’s End, Mia and her friends jump into the newly gurgling fountain of youth and swim to its very bottom. When they resurface, an astounding world awaits them—an entire underground civilization of humans, the Keepers of the Well.

But instead of finding a safe haven, Mia and her gang are quickly embroiled in a dangerous, high-stakes battle royale. If Mia wants to save everyone she loves and make it back home alive, she’s got to get to the water’s Source before Sutton and his troops, who are still hot on her trail.

With new characters and new threats, Seth Fishman has upped the ante fantastically and delivers another tense, fast-paced adventure in a richly imagined world just below our feet.

I need this book, like yesterday! I listened to the Audio for The Wells End this year and it was awesome. I cannot wait to see what is in store for these characters.

And I want to mention that when I came into this post to add my part... I had full intentions of using Hold Me Like a Breath. That sneaky co blogger of mine beat me to the punch. lol. :) I love that we always want the same books. <3

's Pick:

Title: Hold Me Like a Breath
Author: Tiffany Schmidt
Series: Once Upon a Crime Family, book #1
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Publication Date: May 19, 2015

Add to Goodreads
Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold—including body parts. She’s the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants.

Penelope’s surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can't protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily.

And in her family's line of work no one can be safe forever.

All Penelope has ever wanted is freedom and independence. But when she’s caught in the crossfire as rival families scramble for prominence, she learns that her wishes come with casualties, that betrayal hurts worse than bruises, that love is a risk worth taking . . . and maybe she’s not as fragile as everyone thinks.

OMG! I effing love Tiffany Schmidt, and I just saw this cover reveal on Thursday and KNEW I had to feature this book today. First, it's supposed to be a Princess and the Pea retelling. YESH! Also, that cover is beyond gorgeous, even the bits that are supposed to represent blood. And I just LOVE books where the main character lives in a crime family. So, there's no question that this is tops on my wishlist for next year. =)
