Waiting on Wednesday! (More like May!)

Can we just change name of this meme for today? Because I would love to change to Waiting on MAY. So many books on my "need-this-now" shelf are coming out in May! I am just going to highlight a couple of them so you can see what I am waiting on!

As always, this lovely meme is hosted by those over Breaking the Spine.

Barely Breathing by Rebecca Donovan
Expected publication date: May 1st, 2012
Emma’s struggle with an abusive home life came to a heart pounding conclusion in the final chapters of Reason to Breathe. Now everyone in Weslyn knows Emma’s secret, but Carol can’t hurt Emma anymore. Some are still haunted by the horror of that night, and some must face the repercussions of their choices. Fans of Rebecca Donovan’s debut novel will discover there’s still much to learn about Emma’s life.
If you have read the first book, you will understand why I need this book right now. If you haven't read the first book...well, I can't even say you should. It is a great book, in my opinion but it is also a very tough read. If you are feeling like a heavy book that might leave you heartbroken pick up Remember to Breathe however, I HIGHLY suggest you don't do it until after May 1st. You are going to need the sequel as soon as you are done with the last word of the first book. I am so anxious to read this book. It is going to be one I either absolutely love or absolutely hate, I know it!

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Expected publication date: May 1st, 2012
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
So, I know a lot of people are waiting on this book. It's not shocking to see it on any list. I am really hoping this book is amazing and not a let down like a certain other popular dystopian whose sequel came out this year. I really like divergent and I am crossing my fingers that this series doesn't have that "sophomore slump" that so many series (and even trilogies!) fall prey too! I am also wondering if there is going to be a big love triangle...ugh. So over love triangles! 
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Expected publication date: May 22nd, 2012
Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma’s gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . .
I am so excited for this book. I've never read any mermaid type books and this book just sounds so unique. I am definitely ready for something unique! The same old, same old stuff is great because believe me, I LOVE it. I read enough of it that I must love it but something new and entertaining sounds great too. This is one that I definitely will pick up on release day!

There are more books I am looking forward to in May, like, of course Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore and In Honor by Jessi Kirby. May is going to be a super busy reading month! 


  1. I'm waiting on Insurgent (even though I haven't got the first book yet, but I know I will read the full series, I just got to get the books). I also want to get a copy of 'Of Poseidon'. I loved reading Forgive My Fins (Fins Series, Book #1) by Tera Lynn Childs. Its another teen mermaid book. So I'm excited to see another author bring out a mermaid book. Great wow books. I'm a new GFC follower. Natasha @ Paranormal Goddess Book Blog - My Waiting On Wednesday Post

  2. I will have to pick up Forgive My Fins, that title cracks me up! Thanks for stopping by!
