Waiting on Wednesday #3


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


The Bone Season & 

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea




The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Release Date: August 20th 2013

It is the year 2059. Several major world cities are under the control of a security force called Scion. Paige Mahoney works in the criminal underworld of Scion London, part of a secret cell known as the Seven Seals. The work she does is unusual: scouting for information by breaking into others’ minds. Paige is a dreamwalker, a rare kind of clairvoyant, and in this world, the voyants commit treason simply by breathing.
But when Paige is captured and arrested, she encounters a power more sinister even than Scion. The voyant prison is a separate city—Oxford, erased from the map two centuries ago and now controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. These creatures, the Rephaim, value the voyants highly—as soldiers in their army.
Paige is assigned to a Rephaite keeper, Warden, who will be in charge of her care and training. He is her master. Her natural enemy. But if she wants to regain her freedom, Paige will have to learn something of his mind and his own mysterious motives.
The Bone Season introduces a compelling heroine—a young woman learning to harness her powers in a world where everything has been taken from her. It also introduces an extraordinary young writer, with huge ambition and a teeming imagination. Samantha Shannon has created a bold new reality in this riveting debut.

I'm excited for this book because it is a combination between paranormal (the voyants) and dystopian. I really loved this in Shatter Me and The Immortal Rules, so I hope I'll like this one too.



Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke

Release Date: August 15th 2013

You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…
Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch.

I'm excited for this book, because I love gothic horror novels. This one also has romance, so that's even more awesome. 

What books are you excited for?

  16. I'm really loving the look of Devil - the cover is gorgeous (I'm a sucker for them) and the synopsis is especially intriguing. A mix of gothic horror and contemporary romance? Perfect.

  17. I got an ARC of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea from a fellow blogger... otherwise, there is no way Penguin would have sent me one! I have yet to read it though. And I've been seeing a lot more of The Bone Season! Hopefully it's good :D
