Waiting on Wednesday (Oct. 3rd)


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

This week's pre-publication can't-wait-to-read selections are:

Flukes
by Nichole Chase
Meena has a secret guarded closely by her family—a secret as dangerous as the sea, and buried just as deep. When court appointed community service workers are assigned to Flukes, the family-owned animal sanctuary, everyone is on high alert. It doesn’t help that Meena finds herself attracted to sexy-as-sin Blake Weathering, one of the new workers. If he wasn’t so distracting, she might be able to land Flukes a much-needed cruise line contract.

Blake Weathering, the first in his family to attend public school, has developed a tough image. Unfortunately it lands him in trouble. Now banned from his high school graduation ceremony, getting his diploma is dependent upon a community service gig cleaning fish crap. No diploma, no trust fund fortune—and no way to escape his overbearing father. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a mysterious girl with teal eyes who pulls at his heart strings.

When Blake discovers Meena’s secret, they are both thrown into a desperate search for information about her past. Two worlds pull them in opposite directions, and they will have to fight to hold onto all that really matters.

I'm definitely intrigued. What is going on here? Is she a mermaid? A siren? Something else? I have absolutely no idea, but I definitely want to find out. Plus, I have a strong suspicion that Meena and Blake will be fun to watch as a pair, considering how much I enjoyed Ree, Paden and Roland when I reviewed Mortal Obligation last year. (Yes, another series I need to go back and finish. The list never ends, I tell you.) 

Velveteen
by Daniel Marks
Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that’s not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it’s not a fiery inferno, it’s certainly no heaven. It’s gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn’t leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what’s really on her mind.

Bonesaw.

Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she’s figured out just how to do it. She’ll haunt him for the rest of his days.


It’ll be brutal... and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen’s obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she’s willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can’t help herself when it comes to breaking rules... or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

This has the potential to be awesome. :D Only time will tell whether the way this story is executed is worthy of such a totally awesome premise, but I can't wait to find out for myself.

While you're here, why not sign up for the Sealer's Promise cover reveal? I'm revealing the cover, trailer and prologue for my novel on the 19th of October and I'd love for all of you to be involved. As a thank you to everyone who helps, I am putting the names of all bloggers who take part into a drawing. One lucky winner will get to pick a book of his or her choice (valued up to $12 USD) from The Book Depository. You can find all the details by clicking here.

So, what are you looking forward to this week? Leave a link and I'll drop by and check it out. :)
