Waiting on Wednesday #1

Waiting on Wednesday will be a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases which I'm eagerly anticipating!

This week's "cant-wait-to-be-read" books are:

Rebel Heart (Dust Lands, #2)
Title: Rebel Heart
Series: Dust Lands #2
Author: Moira Young
Pages: 448
Expected publication date: October 30th, 2012 | by Margaret K. McElderry

Warning: This description contains some spoilers for the first book, Blood Red Road.

Description from Goodreads: The Tonton have been defeated. Luch has been rescued. The heartstone has brought Saba and Jack together. Now, Saba and her family head west to meet him and start a new life. All should be well. But shodows of the dead are stalking Saba. And another kind of shadow is creeping over the dustlands. Then a messenger shows up. With news of Jack...

I can't wait!~ Well, I have to admit, the description doesn't reveal a great deal... but it still got me really excited! After reading the first book of the Dust Lands series, Blood Red Road, I was just AMAZED! This is so different from all the other dystopian books I have read so far, but OH MY what a good book this is!! This book had me by the first sentence, and the action started immediately in the first chapter! It was a non-stop roller coaster of craziness! Every chapter had something exciting and thrilling to it, FORCING you to want more and more. If I did not control myself, I could have easily read this book in two days, if not less! I was hooked!

I simply can't wait for the Rebel Heart to come out! I am so, so excited for what there is to come and what more adventures are around the corner. I just can't believe we still have to wait SOOO long!! It wont be out until October 30th this year, so still a far way ahead, which is driving me completely nuts!! But it will be something to countdown to and look forward to!!

Review coming soon!...

Something a bit more around the corner:
Insurgent (Divergent, #2)Title: Insurgent
Series: Divergent #2
Author: Veronica Roth
Pages: 525
Expected publication date: May 1st, 2012 | by HarperTeen May 1st 2012 by HarperTeen

Warning: This description contains some spoilers for the first book, Divergent.

Description from GoodreadsOne 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.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

I can't wait!~ From my post "A Special for the Divergent Fans", I think you all have already gotten the impression that I'm completely psyched for this book to come out!! And I simply can't believe that in a matter of 5 days it will be out! The moment it comes out I will RUN to the bookstore! The first book, Divergent, was amazing and there was definitely somewhat of a cliffhanger at the end of the book so I can't WAIT to find out what happens next!!

That was it for this week's "Waiting on Wednesday"!

Until next time Peachy Readers!
