Waiting on Wednesday (126)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
Release date: November 26, 2013

Description from Goodreads:

From acclaimed author Katie McGarry comes an explosive new tale of a good girl with a reckless streak, a street-smart guy with nothing to lose, and a romance forged in the fast lane 

The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life-that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers...and she's just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind. 

Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look. 

But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.

I liked Pushing the Limits and loved Dare You To so I have high hopes for Crash Into You

Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson
Release date: September 28, 2013

Description from Goodreads:

Kate Worthington knows her heart and she knows she will never marry. Her plan is to travel to India instead—if only to find peace for her restless spirit and to escape the family she abhors. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. She makes a bargain with Kate: India, yes, but only after Kate has secured—and rejected—three marriage proposals.

Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore determined to fulfill her end of the bargain and enlists the help of her dearest childhood friend, Henry Delafield. But when it comes to matters of love, bargains are meaningless and plans are changeable. There on the wild lands of Blackmoore, Kate must face the truth that has kept her heart captive. Will the proposal she is determined to reject actually be the one thing that will set her heart free?

Set in Northern England in 1820, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn how to follow her heart. It is Wuthering Heights meets Little Women with a delicious must-read twist.

I loved Edenbrooke so I was excited to find out that the author has another Regency romance coming out. I hope the book will not be like Wuthering Heights but the Little Women comparison isn't a bad thing. 


  1. Great picks! I love regency era novels and had not read Ms. Donaldson yet. I will have to add her to my list. Happy Reading!

    My WoW

  2. I definitely want to check out both of these books. Second the hope that Blackmoore isn't like Wuthering Heights, a book I absolutely loathe.

  3. Love the sound of both books!

    "...with a delicious must-read twist" - that has me curious! I love twists.

    Great WOW choices :)

  4. Hmm, I've not gotten into the first series, but the 2nd one sounds interesting! New Bloglovin follower.
    Check out my WOW

  5. Crash Into You has been on so many WoW this week... I love that cover!
