Waiting on Wednesday (#5)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

It's been a while since we did one of these, but because Jess has ran out of Book Boyfriends (just until she reads more) this will be in its place.

Jess's Waiting on Wednesday

(Can I just say? Major excitement about this! More Ren!)

Bloodrose (Nightshade #3) by Andrea Cremer
Release date: January 3rd, 2012

Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there’s more at stake than fighting. There’s saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay’s wrath. There’s keeping Ansel safe, even if he’s been branded a traitor. There’s proving herself as the pack’s alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers’ magic once and for all. And then there’s deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is. 

In the final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Andrea Cremer creates a novel with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat until its final pages. A dynamic end to this breathtaking trilogy.

Donna's Waiting on Wednesday

Dark Companion by Marta Acosta
Release Date: July 3rd, 2012

When foster teen Jane Williams is invited to attend elite Birch Grove Academy for Girls and escape her violent urban neighborhood, she thinks the offer is too good to be true. She's even offered her own living quarters, the groundskeeper's cottage in the center of the birch grove.

Something's not quite right about the school -- or is it Jane? She thinks she sees things in the birch grove at night. She's also beginning to suspect that the elegant headmistress and her sons are hiding secrets. Lucky is the gorgeous, golden son who is especially attentive to Jane, and Jack is the sardonic puzzling brother.

The school with its talented teachers and bright students is a dream for a science and math geek like Jane. She also loves her new friends, including hilarious poetry-spouting rich girl, Mary Violet. But the longer Jane stays at Birch Grove, the more questions she has about the disappearance of another scholarship girl and a missing faculty member.

Jane discovers one secret about Birch Grove, which only leads to more mysteries. What is she willing to sacrifice in order to stay at this school...and be bound to Birch Grove forever?

I just came from another blog that also chose Bloodrose. I'm hoping I love it as much as Nightshade! Dark Companion sounds like a very mysterious read.

Ha, I want more Ren, too! I'm looking forward to the final book quite a bit. :)

Donna, I like your choice, too! I've seen the cover around a few times but I had never actually read the synopsis till now, but I have to say, it sounds like a great book!

Brilliant picks. :)
