Waiting on Wednesday #18

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine where we share with everyone upcoming new releases that we're eager to get our hands on! :)

Three of them this week! Are you ready? Yeah me too!

Catching Liam (Good Girls Don't #1) by Sophia Bleu
Expected publication: July 2013 

Twenty-one year-old Jillian Nichols only has one rule when it comes to boys: catch and release. Boy-catching isn't just a game for Jillian and her friends, it's a lifestyle. After all, boys might be good for a dance or a drink and certainly a little under-cover action of the scandalous variety, but expect much else and you're bound for heart ache.

So when her best friends and fellow boy catchers start dropping like flies junior year, Jillian is determined to keep boys in her bedroom and out of her heart. Until she meets Liam McAvoy, the kind of guy that sticks around to make waffles and who can't—or perhaps won't—take a hint. 

Study abroad student Liam doesn't want to be another notch on Jillian's bedpost. Actually he has much more interesting ideas for Jillian and her bedposts, but his student visa's set expiration date means he can't promise her forever. That doesn't mean he's going to walk away from the challenge of discovering why Jillian is hell-bent at keeping people at a distance. 

Before long, neither is sure who is catching who—or if they're playing for keeps. Jillian knows one thing though: falling in love will not only break the only rule of boy-catching, it could also break her heart.

Soulmate (Ganzfield #6) by Kate Kaynak
Expected publication: July 1st 2013 
by Spencer Hill Press 

So there's literally no blurb up yet. But I am DYING For this book ahhh! *Bouncing up and down in chair* So instead of hearing what it's about I'll take you all the way back to book #1!

Minder (Ganzfield #1) Blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Maddie Dunn is special, but she needs to figure out how to use her new abilities before somebody else gets hurt. Ganzfield is a secret training facility full of people like her, but it's not exactly a nurturing place. 

Every social interaction carries the threat of mind-control.

A stray thought can burn a building to the ground.

And people's nightmares don't always stay in their own heads. But it's still better than New Jersey. Especially once she meets the man of her dreams...

SYLO by D.J. MacHale
Expected publication: July 2nd 2013 
by Razorbill 

Does Tucker Pierce have what it takes to be a hero when the U.S. military quarantines his island?

Fourteen-year-old Tucker Pierce prefers to fly under the radar. He’s used to navigating around summer tourists in his hometown on idyllic Pemberwick Island, Maine. He’s content to sit on the sidelines as a backup player on the high school football team. And though his best friend Quinn tells him to “go for it,” he’s too chicken to ask Tori Sleeper on a date. There’s always tomorrow, he figures. Then Pemberwick Island is invaded by a mysterious branch of the U.S. military called SYLO. And sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option for Tucker, because tomorrow may never come. 

It’s up to Tucker, Quinn, and Tori to uncover the truth about the singing aircraft that appears only at night—and the stranger named Feit who’s pushing a red crystal he calls the Ruby that brings unique powers to all who take it. Tucker and his friends must rescue not just Pemberwick Island, but the fate of the world—and all before tomorrow is too late.  

#1 New York Times bestselling author D.J. MacHale brings his brilliant plotting and breathless pacing to SYLO, the first in this ultimate end-of-the-world adventure trilogy.

I'm really not 100% sure about that last one. I can't decide what exactly I think about it. Sounds a bit confusing. *Shrugs* Excited for the other 3 though! 

What are you waiting on this week? :)


  1. Catching Liam looks good!

  2. I'm super excited about Catching Liam. I'm on the tour so I have a copy but of course: haven't gotten to it yet! I requested SYLO off NG, but got rejected. Sigh. Penguin will love me someday. I'm determined.

  3. Yeah that's the one I'm most excited for!! :D

  4. OHhh lucky you! Can't wait to see what you think :) I'll be getting it asap. And yeah I also requested and got rejected for SYLO. Penguin will rue the day they continually reject us (well me at least) LOL
