Waiting on Wednesday (172)

"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:

These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zevas
Release date: February 9, 2016

Evelyn has no interest in marriage and even the dashing Mr. Kent can’t make her want to live up to society’s expectations. She’d much rather assist her beloved sister Rose in achieving her radical dream of becoming a doctor. But everything changes the night she meets Sebastian Braddock –- not only is the reclusive gentleman both vexing and annoyingly attractive, he’s also quite possibly mad, and his interest in Rose is galling. So when Evelyn wakes up to discover that Rose has disappeared, she immediately suspects Sebastian.

But then she discovers that Sebastian’s strange tales of special powers are actually true, and that Rose’s kidnappers have worse in mind for her than simply ruining her reputation. Surrounded by secrets, lies, and unprecedented danger, Evelyn has no choice but to trust Sebastian, yet she can’t help but worry that Sebastian’s secrets are the most dangerous of all…

Jane Austen meets X-Men in this thrilling Victorian adventure!

Jane Austen meets X-Men? Sounds like fun! Of course Jane Austen wasn't exactly Victorian but oh, well. Details...

Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell
Release date: February 2, 2016

For as long as she can remember, Gwendolyn Allister has never had a place to call home. Her mother believes they are being hunted by brutal monsters, and those delusions have brought them to London, far from the life Gwen had finally started to build for herself. Gwen’s only saving grace is that her best friend, Olivia, is with her for the summer.
But shortly after their arrival, the girls are kidnapped by shadowy creatures and dragged to a world of flesh-eating sea hags and dangerous Fey. And Gwen begins to realize that maybe her mother isn’t so crazy after all…

Gwen discovers that this new world she inhabits is called Neverland, but it’s nothing like the Neverland you’ve heard about in stories. Here, good and evil lose their meaning and memories slip like water through your fingers. As Gwen struggles to remember where she came from and tries to find a way home, she must choose between trusting the charming fairy-tale hero who says all the right things and the captivating pirate who promises to keep her safe.

Caught in the ultimate battle between good and evil, with time running out and her enemies closing in, Gwen is forced to finally face the truths she’s been hiding from all along. But can she save Neverland without losing herself?

I've heard some good things about this one and as a fan of Once Upon a Time and that show's version of Captain Hook, Unhooked sounds pretty good to me!


  1. OOOhhhhh Unhooked. I'm not normally a fan of love triangles, but this one... sounds SO good! RE These Vicious Masks, the Jane Austen meets X-Men description certainly sounds fun!

  2. I definitely have These Vicious Masks on my TBR the sound of that one. Unhooked is new to me...will have to check that one out. I love anything with Captain Hook/Neverland. Great picks!

  3. I will be reading both of these. I have These Vicious Masks for review and am looking forward to making some time for it. Here's hoping that we both love these.

  4. I have an ARC of Viscious Masks and can't wait to read it.

    I Heart Reading

  5. Oh, these sound interesting, Christina, especially Unhooked. I have a very soft spot for Captain Hook :)
    I hope you'll get your hands on both very soon, and that you'll enjoy them!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday.
