Waiting on Wednesday {22}

waiting on wednesday 10 Comments 4th January, 2012

Since I’m reading mostly HarperCollins books this month, I thought I’d highlight Harper books I’m dying to read. Here are two I’m eagerly awaiting this week:

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Release date: May 1, 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.

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.

Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer
Release date: February 14, 2012

To Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Mafia families and its reputation for murder and intrigue, is just that—exotic and wholly unknown. But when her life in Brooklyn begins to fall apart, she must travel there, to her family’s ancestral home, where centuries of family secrets await her.

Once there, Rosa falls head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose handsome looks and savage grace both fascinate and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and her aunt and sister believe Alessandro is only using Rosa to infiltrate the Alcantara clan. And when Rosa encounters a tiger one night—a tiger with very familiar eyes—she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem.

Hidden caves, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a history of familial bloodlust mean that Rosa can’t trust anyone. Torn between loyalty to her family and love for their mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love…or run as far and as fast as she can.

    I am from Germany so Arcadia Awakens doesn’t sound new to me – The whole series is finished here already. BUT I have not read it yet and to be honest, I like the US cover so much more.. I hope the German publisher will release a PB edition with these covers! *gnnn*

    If not, I would have to read them in English and I hate translations. (Which is why I read US/UK/AU/CAN novels in English instead of German *g*)

    And Insurgent. Who is not waiting for this book? LOL

    My WOW
