One Tiny Lie

By K.A. Tucker

From Goodreads.com:

Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling her parents’ tragic death and Kacey’s self-destructive phase with strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised she would…and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every action.

Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?

As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.

Why I Can’t Wait: 

Ten Tiny Breaths was the first new adult book I ever read, and quite frankly it kind of spoiled me on the genre.  The book was fascinating, well-written, and emotional.  I was SO excited when I heard the author was putting out another book from the sister, Livie’s point of view.  I think this book has a lot of potential to be just as amazing as the first book was.  Needless to say, this is one that I CAN NOT WAIT for!

So, what book are YOU waiting on?

Waiting on Wednesday weekly event that spotlights upcoming-releases that bloggers are most excited about.  This week’s I-can’t-wait book is: The Impossibility of Tomorrow by Avery Williams.  The Impossibility of Tomorrow will be published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers on June 4, 2013.

(Incarnation #2)
By Avery Williams

The immortal Seraphina is forced to face the darkness of her past—and risk losing the love of her life—in this second novel in the Incarnation series.

Seraphina has been living for centuries, thanks to a special method of alchemy, but only recently has she really felt alive. She’s finally broken free from her controlling boyfriend, Cyrus, and after years of swapping bodies to preserve her immortality, is happily settled into a life worth sticking with. Because in this life, she has Noah.

But Noah might not be as trustworthy as he seems. After he delivers an ominous message that could only come from Cyrus, Sera is worried that her new friends and family will find out her secret. And as her suspicions extend beyond Noah, Sera is forced to wonder about her new friends as well: Could her old coven be disguising themselves right under her nose?

Will Sera have to move to another body—and take another life—or can she find a way to keep what she’s got, forever?

Why I Can’t Wait: 

In The Alchemy of Forever, we meet a girl who was born in Italy during the middle ages, who was killed at a young age.  But Cyrus, a young boy whom she liked was able to use alchemy to allow their spirits to inhabit other bodies, thus allowing them to live forever.  But Serephina over the years has come to realize that living forever comes at a great price: one that she isn’t willing to make anymore.  But when an event happens she can’t control, Serephina finds herself in a body of a young girl — and finds herself falling in love.  The book ended on a cliffhanger — her love (Noah) may be inhabited by Cyrus, and Sera has to begin to sort through what is going on.  I fell in love with the first book and can’t wait to see what happens next!

Waiting On Wednesday (1)

I’m proud to announce that I’ve joined the Waiting on Wednesday weekly blog event!  Each week, bloggers participate by spotlighting upcoming-releases that they are most excited about.  My first I-can’t-wait book is: Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas.  Crown Of Midnight will be released by Bloomsbury USA Childrens Publishing on August 27, 2013.

Crown of Midnight
Sarah J. Maas
Expected Publication Date: August 27, 2013

An assassin’s loyalties are always in doubt.
But her heart never wavers.

After a year of hard labor in the Salt Mines of Endovier, eighteen-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien has won the king’s contest to become the new royal assassin. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown – a secret she hides from even her most intimate confidantes.

Keeping up the deadly charade—while pretending to do the king’s bidding—will test her in frightening new ways, especially when she’s given a task that could jeopardize everything she’s come to care for. And there are far more dangerous forces gathering on the horizon — forces that threaten to destroy her entire world, and will surely force Celaena to make a choice.

Where do the assassin’s loyalties lie, and who is she most willing to fight for?

Why I Can’t Wait: 

Throne of Glass was one of my favorite reads this year.  It was fun, challenging, and had the most kick butt heroine at the center of everything.  A Cinderella who was trained to be the world’s greatest assassin.  Yeah, can’t say no to that.  And two potential love interests — an outgoing prince and a quiet, but fierce guard.  It also got me into reading more books from the fantasy genre.  Book two leads us further in Celaena’s path to freedom and into a love triangle that I for one can’t wait to see played out.  Needless to say, this is one that I CAN NOT WAIT for!
