"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 Heir
Author: Kiera Cass
Series: The Selection #4
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: May 5th, 2015

Add to Goodreads
Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won Prince Maxon’s heart. Now the time has come for Princess Eadlyn to hold a Selection of her own. Eadlyn doesn’t expect her Selection to be anything like her parents’ fairy-tale love story. But as the competition begins, she may discover that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she always thought.

Normally I can be a pretty picky reader. So I was surprised by how much I've been enjoying The Selection books. I've been eating them up like candy. They are just fun and paired with some of the tear jerkers I've read lately, it makes for a perfect balance.

Thankfully I don't have too long to wait for The Heir. They probably could have just left the series as is. Which is what I thought they would do originally, but I'm still going to be all over this shit and I'm once again dragging my buddy reader Jess with me. lol. :)

And these covers.. they are gorgeous. I think this one might be my favorite. It looks so Spacey.

's Pick:

Title: Truthwitch
Author: Susan Dennard
Series: The Witchlands, book #1
Publisher: Tor
Publication Date: January 2016

Add to Goodreads
On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery,” a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well. Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.
That cover is so fiercely awesome, guys...I can't even. And then to read Susan talk about the fierce friendship in this book and what it means to her....YAAAAASSSS! I just read another book -- though, for the life of me, I cannot remember which one -- where one of the characters was able to discern whether someone was telling the truth, and I loved how that ability was employed. I can't wait to see how it's used in this novel!

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