new-wow

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that features upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

23734628Releases October 6th 2015 by St. Martin’s Griffin

By Rainbow Rowell

Companion to Fangirl

Young-Adult, Fantasy, Romance

LGBT, Magic, Paranormal

Rainbow Rowell continues to break boundaries with Carry On, an epic fantasy following the triumphs and heartaches of Simon and Baz from her beloved bestseller Fangirl.

Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts. And vampires. And actual evil things trying to shut Simon down. When you’re the most powerful magician the world has ever known, you never get to relax and savor anything.

Carry On is a ghost story, a love story, a mystery and a melodrama. It has just as much kissing and talking as you’d expect from a Rainbow Rowell story — but far, far more monsters.

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble;it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.

Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands Trilogy #1) by Moira Young Digital

This book is killing me slowly. I’m trying to keep reading because I was told that it gets better, but the dialect that this character speaks is trying my patience. I’m from the South, and I’ve heard some strange words but this is ridiculous. Pray for me and this book!

Landline by Rainbow Rowell hardcover

I’ve already started GOT, because let’s face it, I’m obsessed with the show! I hate all the character deaths, even though I’m prepared for them because I’ve already seen them happen. George R.R. Martin should be ashamed of himself for breaking our hearts!! I will listen to The Goldfinch after I’m done with GOT, which won’t be anytime soon. So many hours to listen to! And I’m ready to read Landline. Rainbow Rowell is one of my favorite authors, so I can’t wait to read her next masterpiece.

That’s it for me this week. What books did you add to your shelves?
