Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting! This week I am waiting on....

         When the Sea is Rising Red

After seventeen-year-old Felicita’s dearest friend Ilven kills herself to escape an arranged marriage, Felicita chooses freedom over privilege. She fakes her own death and leaves her sheltered life as one of Pelimburg’s magical elite behind. Living in the slums, scrubbing dishes for a living, she falls for charismatic Dash while also becoming fascinated with vampire Jannik. Then something shocking washes up on the beach: Ilven's death has called out of the sea a dangerous wild magic. Felicita must decide whether her loyalties lie with the family she abandoned . . . or with those who would twist this dark power to destroy Pelimburg's caste system, and the whole city along with it. 
Expected publication: February 28th 2012 

OMG! THE COVER IS SOOOO CREEPY!! This one's by a 2012 Debut author too!

Freshman Year & Other Unnatural Disasters
by Meredith Zeitlin
Kelsey Finkelstein is fourteen and FRUSTRATED. Every time she tries to live up to her awesome potential, her plans are foiled – by her impossible parents, her annoying little sister, and life in general. But with her first day of high school coming up, Kelsey is positive that things are going to change. Enlisting the help of her three best friends — sweet and quiet Em, theatrical Cass, and wild JoJo — Kelsey gets ready to rebrand herself and make the kind of mark she knows is her destiny. 

Things start out great - her arch-nemesis has moved across the country, giving Kelsey the perfect opportunity to stand out on the soccer team and finally catch the eye of her long-time crush. But soon enough, an evil junior’s thirst for revenge, a mysterious photographer, and a series of other catastrophes make it clear that just because KELSEY has a plan for greatness… it doesn’t mean the rest of the world is in on it. 

Kelsey’s hilarious commentary throughout her disastrous freshman year will have you laughing out loud—while being thankful that you’re not in her shoes, of course…

Expected publication: March 1st 2012 by Putnam Juvenile

  2. I really love the covers for both of them. When the Sea is Rising Red has such a creepy look to it, while Freshman Year has such a fun cover! They're both so cool.

    Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters looks like such a fun book. :) I'll be waiting for that one as well!

  3. When the Sea is Rising Red sounds like one of my fave classic movies Sleeping with the Enemy but with creepy paranormal elements! I think I'm gonna go do some research on it and possibly pre-order it...ASAP!
