Waiting on Wednesday (23)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Breaking the Spine.

Look at me, using numbers!

Anyway, today's WoW is the 2011 edition! Two 2011 releases I am ABSOPOSITIVELYFREAKINGLUTELY excited for.

Haunted
Joy Preble
[1/1/11]

Joy Preble's Haunted, the sequel to Dreaming Anastasia, in which a girl is being haunted by a mysterious and malevolent mermaid, to Daniel Ehrenhaft at Sourcebooks, for publication in Winter 2011, by Jennifer Rofe at Andrea Brown Literary Agency. (from Joy Preble's website)

So, I love, love, LOVED Dreaming Anastasia
and as you guys can see, Joy dropped the hint about the sequel on my review months ago. Within the past few weeks, the news has become official and this most gorgeous cover has been posted. I will do anything possible to get a copy of this ASAP.

I also found out last night that this will be at BEA. So if anyone going to BEA wants their own copy or to become a saint...


Falling Under
Gwen Hayes
[March 2011]


In her dreams he’s irresistible—seductive, charming, and undoubtedly dangerous. But when he appears to her when she’s awake—and captivates her just the same—she’s not sure which way is up and which is down.


Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life, not allowed the same freedoms as the rest of the teenagers in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, she feels every urge she’s ever denied burning through her at the slightest glance from Haden Black. Theia knows she’s seen Haden before—not around town, but in her dreams.

Theia doesn’t understand how she dreamed of Haden before they ever met, but every night has them joined in a haunting world of eerie fantasy. And as the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her forward one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear. And as she slowly discovers what Haden truly is, Theia’s not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul. (from Gwen Hayes' website)

I first saw this on La Femme Readers and was instantly in love! The cover is perfection, the summary really draws me in, and Gwen is super sweet. This is another one I'll do everything possible for. (Yes, I am that shameless for some books.)

So, what are you guys waiting on this Wednesday?

  2. Dreaming Anastasia is in my TBR pile. I'm really into the history of her and well... historical fiction in general. I read a few pages of this in the book store awhile back but I haven't finished it yet. The cover for the sequel is really nice!

  3. I was somehow never inspired to read Dreaming Anastasia, but for some reason Haunted looks so good that I'm now considering it!

    Mine's here!

  5. Falling Under looks incredible doesn't it? I hope the story lives up to its awesome exterior...

    I haven't read Dreaming Anastasia but it's on my TBR pile-the cover for Haunted is also quite stunning. Nice picks this week!
