Waiting on Wednesday (13): Vessel and Renegade


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


Title: Vessel
Author: Sarah Beth Durst
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Expected publication: September 11th, 2012
In a desert land where serpents made of unbreakable glass fly through the sky and wolves made of only sand hunt within storms, Liyana is destined to be a vessel, to sacrifice herself so that her clan's goddess can inhabit her body...but her goddess never comes.
First, amazing cover. Second, wolves - win. Third, THE GODDESS NEVER COMES. That's total eff...ery right there! I'm so picking this one up when it releases, asap!


Title: Renegade
Author: J. A. Souders
Publisher: Tor Teen
Expected publication: Fall 2012
Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie. Her memories have been altered. Her mind and body aren’t under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb...and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.
 I haven't read a lot of books that have to do with mer...people and this one sounds like da bomb so it's definitely getting added to my never-ending tbr pile. Another thing, that cover! It has this glow to it that is so mesmerizing! I just looked at it again and it's definitely the font and coloring on the title. I can't wait to see it in person!

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?! Leave your book picks and/or links in the comment section below and I will most def. drop by to see what they are. Honestly, I find out about new books through a lot of people's WOW post. I mean, yeah there's twitter and facebook and blogs and the twittah, but WOW is definitely one of the greatest ways to find out about new books. So, leave your links below because you never know, I might just discover one or two or three or ten new books today! ;)
