Waiting on Wednesday #27

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme
 hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine
where we spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating.

by Marissa Meyer
Series: The Lunar Chronicles #2
Publisher: Macmillan
Publication date: February 5, 2013
Genre: YA Dystopian

Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.
Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.
As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.
I love the world Meyer has created and am anxious to return. 

One Good Earl Deserves a Lover
by Sarah MacLean
Series: Rules of Scoundrels #2
Publisher: HarperCollins/Avon
Publication date: January 29, 2013
Genre: Historical Fiction
Purchase:Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository

The second in the incredible new Rules of Scoundrels series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean. Lady Philippa Marbury is odd. The bespectacled, brilliant fourth daughter of the Marquess of Needham and Dolby cares more for books than balls, flora than fashion and science than the season. Nearly engaged to Lord Castleton, Pippa wants to explore the scandalous parts of London she's never seen before marriage. And she knows just who to ask: the tall, charming, quick-witted bookkeeper of The Fallen Angel, London's most notorious and coveted gaming hell, known only as Cross. 
Like any good scientist, Pippa's done her research and Cross's reputation makes him perfect for her scheme. She wants science without emotion - the experience of ruination without the repercussions of ruination. And who better to provide her with the experience than this legendary man? But when this odd, unexpected female propositions Cross, it's more than tempting . . . and it will take everything he has to resist following his instincts - and giving the lady precisely what she wants.
Right now I am totally in love with this author. I cannot wait to read Pippa and Cross's story..eep! You can see my review of book one; A Rouge By Any Other Name here

I will not be participating in Waiting on Wednesday
during the month of October due to my month long event
but I hope you will stop in. WoW will be back in November. 

What books are you waiting on?

I can't wait for the Things That Go Bump in the Night event, Kimba! I'm a huge fan of Halloween and anything creeeepy so it's a given that I'm anticipating it eagerly, yeah? ;)

And awesome picks! I've read one of Sarah MacLean's books before and while fairly enjoyable, I heard her adult romance series were much better. Thanks for sharing :)

I had no idea Sarah MacLean wrote YA, this is an adult book, and I've only read her adult ones. Hmmm..interesting. .
