"Waiting On" Wednesday (#56) Inherit Midnight by Kate Kae Myers


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:
Inherit Midnight by
Expected publication: February 10th 2015 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens

From Goodreads: 
The Competition:

Outlandishly wealthy Grandmother VanDemere has decided to leave her vast fortune to the family member who proves him or herself worthiest—by solving puzzles and riddles on a whirlwind race around the globe, from the mines of Venezuela to the castles of Scotland. There will be eight competitors, three continents . . . and a prize worth millions.

The Players:
Seventeen-year-old Avery is the black sheep of the VanDemere clan, the ostracized illegitimate daughter. Finally, she has a chance to prove herself . . . and to discover the truth about her long-lost mother.

Marshall might be Avery’s uncle, but there’s no love lost between the two of them. He’s her main competition, and he’ll do anything to win—including betray his own children.

Riley is the handsome son of Grandmother VanDemere’s lawyer. As the game progresses, Avery falls hard for Riley. Suddenly, losing the game might mean losing him, too.

As the competition takes treacherous turns, it becomes clear there can only be one victor. Who can Avery truly trust? And is winning worth her life?

Why I'm Waiting:
This looks like a fun book.  There have been other inheritance books I've read, and I've enjoyed them, so this looks like the type of book I would like.  Plus traveling, which is always a favorite of mine.

Top Ten Tuesday (#67) (08/26/14)


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don't Own Yet

I own a lot of books.  I actually own an insane ridiculous amount of books.  So most of these books haven't come out yet, so I don't know if this list is very fair.  Also, I am a very big user of my library, so if I don't own it, and it's out, I just borrow it from the library. Because of this, I'm going heavy with books that haven't been published yet.

I really enjoyed her first book, and this one looks great too.  It doesn't come out until next year.

Another series I am looking forward to seeing how it ends.  I featured this last week as my WoW, but I have to wait until next year to find out the ending.

"Waiting On" Wednesday (#55) The Shadow Cabinet (Shades of London #3) by Maureen Johnson


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:
The Shadow Cabinet (Shades of London #3) by  
Expected publication: February 10th 2015 by Putnam Juvenile

From Goodreads: 

The thrilling third installment to the Edgar-nominated, bestselling series

At the end of Maureen Johnson’s New York Times bestselling novel, The Madness Underneath, Rory, Callum and Boo are reeling from the sudden and tragic death of their friend and squad leader, Stephen. The Shadow Cabinet picks up where readers left off, and now Rory is convinced there must be a way to bring Stephen back. Meanwhile, new dangers arise: Rory's classmate Charlotte is missing, and Jane and her nefarious organization are clearly planning something big—with Rory as their most valuable asset. Time is running out as the ghost squad struggles to protect London and Rory fights to bring Stephen back.

Why I'm Waiting:
Book 2 was a disappointment, but I am curious to see if book three can redeem the series.  I may regret reading it, but I do want to see how it all ends.  I feel like I've been waiting for this book for forever.
