Waiting on Wednesday: Horde

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

This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Horde

By: Ann Aguirre

Release Date: 29 October 2013

Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Blurb: (From Author’s Website)

The epic conclusion to the USA Today bestselling trilogy.

The horde is coming.

Salvation is surrounded, monsters at the gates, and this time, they’re not going away. When Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan set out, the odds are against them. But the odds have been stacked against Deuce from the moment she was born. She might not be a Huntress anymore, but she doesn’t run. With her knives in hand and her companions at her side, she will not falter, whether fighting for her life or Fade’s love.

Ahead, the battle of a lifetime awaits. Freaks are everywhere, attacking settlements, setting up scouts, perimeters, and patrols. There hasn’t been a war like this in centuries, and humans have forgotten how to stand and fight. Unless Deuce can lead them.

This time, however, more than the fate of a single enclave or outpost hangs in the balance. This time, Deuce carries the banner for the survival of all humanity.

The Why:

I HATE not finishing a series. It is like reading a series out of order, a huge peeve of mine. I am looking forward to reading the conclusion. I hope to learn more about the Freaks and discover the reason behind their sudden change, but also maybe learn what happened to the world to cause all this. The second one seems like a bit of a stretch for me, but I would love to know none the less.

Waiting on Wednesday: Cress

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

This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Cress

By: Marissa Meyer

Release Date: February 4, 2014

Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Blurb: (From Author’s Website)

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

The Why:

The third book in the series, we continue the adventure with Cinder and Scarlet while being introduced to Cress, who we got a glimpse of earlier. I love the idea of making her a hacker, it speaks to the techno-nerd in me. I also appreciate it because it reaches out to another type of young girls, those who are computer savvy. I really enjoyed reading about the relationship between Scarlet and Wolf in Scarlet, so I look forward to seeing it continue in this one.
