Waiting on Wednesday 2/20

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event that features the books that we (the bloggers) are highly anticipating. "Waiting on Wednesday" was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Jenny Can't Wait For:

My Name is Rapunzel by K.C. Hilton
Release Date: 2013 (if anyone knows an exact date, please let me know below!)

My tale has been told again and again, and I’ve heard each one. Except for my hair, I barely recognize the pitiful renditions. Muddled versions, crafted to entertain laughing children…but the children wouldn’t have laughed if they’d known the real story. It wasn't their fault. They didn't know the truth. Nobody did.

My name is Rapunzel and I will tell you my story. I will tell you the truth.

Ahhh this sounds like such a good book! It BETTER not let me down! I have such high hopes for this book.

Sadly this book is not available for pre-order, but you can add it to your Goodreads! I need to stop picking WoW books on books that can't be pre-ordered yet...

~M is Eagerly Anticipating:

Mila 2.0 (Mila 2.0 #1) by Debra Driza
Publication Date: March 12th 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books

Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence. Mila 2.0 (Mila 2.0 #1) by Debra Driza

Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past —that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.

Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.

Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity–style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel.

Pre-order MILA 2.0 at: Amazon / Barnes and Noble / The Book Depository

Rosie Obsessively Awaits:

Mind Games (Mind Games #1) by Kiersten White
Expected Publication: February 19, 2013 by HarperTeen

Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future. 

Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.

In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost. --GoodReads

Pre-order Mind Games at: Amazon/ Barnes&Noble/ TBD

    Old Follower :)

  2. I like the idea of a Rapunzel retelling. So many ways to go with that story being that the fairytale is so one-sided.

    Have heard so many great things about Mila 2.0 and plan on reading it for the Debut Author Challenge.

  3. <3 the Rapunzel retelling. I featured Mind Games a while back. Great picks
