Waiting on Wednesday (128)

"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:

Scorched by Mari Mancusi
Release date: September 3, 2013

Description from Goodreads:

Don't leave me here... It starts with a whisper. At first Trinity thinks she's going crazy. It wouldn't be a big surprise--her grandpa firmly believes there's a genuine dragon egg in their dusty little West Texas town. But this voice is real, and it's begging for her protection. Even if no one else can hear it...

He's come from a future scorched by dragonfire. His mission: Find the girl. Destroy the egg. Save the world.

He's everything his twin brother Connor hates: cocky, undisciplined, and obsessed with saving dragons. 

Trinity has no idea which brother to believe. All she has to go by is the voice in her head--a dragon that won't be tamed.

I like books about dragons and I am intrigued by the idea of both the dragons and time travel.

The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle
Release date: August 27, 2013

Description from Goodreads:

For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now... not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?

Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.

And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them...

Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.

I've been drawn to pick up more contemporary YA fiction lately and I think this sounds promising.


  1. Both are great picks. I actually just finished The Infinite Moment of Us and it was really cute. It didn't "wow" me, but it was a sweet read--more for older YA since it had some steamy sections to it.

  2. Scorched sounds so awesome! I can't wait to read it, great choices.

  3. Scorched looks interesting, dragons and time travel could be a really good combo!!

  4. Great choice! I can't wait for these either : )

  5. Dragons? That is awesome! *adds to TBR list*

    Fantastic WOW choices :)
