Waiting on Wednesday September 9, 09


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. They are so many books that are going to come out...

by Kristin Cashore

Goodreads Description:

"Fire, Graceling's prequel-ish companion book, takes place across the mountains to the east of the seven kingdoms, in a rocky, war-torn land called the Dells.

Beautiful creatures called monsters live in the Dells. Monsters have the shape of normal animals: mountain lions, dragonflies, horses, fish. But the hair or scales or feathers of monsters are gorgeously colored-- fuchsia, turquoise, sparkly bronze, iridescent green-- and their minds have the power to control the minds of humans.

Seventeen-year-old Fire is the last remaining human-shaped monster in the Dells. Gorgeously monstrous in body and mind but with a human appreciation of right and wrong, she is hated and mistrusted by just about everyone, and this book is her story."

Release Date: October 5, 2009

I haven't even read Graceling yet but this looks so GOOD. *squees*

The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan

Goodreads Description:

"Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves."

Release Date
: March 9, 2010

I recently read The Forest of Hands and Teeth and I REALLY want to read this one.

Emma Out!


  1. I'm waiting for Fire as well. I haven't read The Forest of Hands and Teeth but I've heard great things. Didn't know she had another book coming out. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great pick! I finished Forest of Hands and Teeth this week and I can't wait til Dead-Tossed Waves. That was my pick for today too. Can't wait til Fire either.
