"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: Heat of the Moment
Author: Lauren Barnholdt
Series: A Moment of Truth Book 1
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: May 12th, 2015

Add to Goodreads
Each book in this paperback original series is told from the perspective of a different girl–Lyla, Aven, and Quinn–former best friends who wrote emails to their future selves back in freshman year about one thing they hope to accomplish before they graduate. When the emails get delivered on the first morning of their senior trip all three girls will spend the next three days trying to keep the promises they made to themselves four years ago. While each book follow’s one girl’s life-changing adventure, you have to read them all to get the whole story, including why they’re no longer friends and whether they can get their friendship back on track.

Okay, so that's not technically this books description. Goodreads has nothing on it yet, but I got that blurb from Epic Reads when they did the cover reveal. I liked the last book I read of hers, it was fast and fun. Through to You. So I'm really looking forward to reading these. I love this cover. :)

's Pick:

Title: Illusionarium
Author: Heather Dixon
Series: n/a
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publication Date: May 19, 2015

Add to Goodreads
From the author of Entwined, a brilliantly conceived adventure through an alternate London. This sweeping, cinematic tale of an apprentice scientist desperate to save his family—and his world—is The Night Circus meets Pixar.

Through richly developed parallel worlds, vivid action, a healthy dose of humor, and gorgeous writing, Heather Dixon spins a story that is breathtaking and wholly original.

Dude, it feels like forever ago since I first discovered the brilliance of Heather Dixon's The Twelve Dancing Princesses retelling, Entwined. I've read it. I've re-read it. I've even borrowed the audio from the library so I could listen to it. It's a favorite, for sure. And I've been waiting and waiting for the author to release something new. And now Illusionarium sounds amazing! The Night Circus meets Pixar? Sign me up! And parallel worlds? I am all over that!

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

  5. Great picks, ladies!
    I haven't read any of Lauren Barnholdt's books - tbh I'm not sure if they're for me - but this companion series sounds very intriguing.
    Illusionarium sounds fantastic! That cover and that synopsis - need the book now!
