Waiting On Wednesday #25

I haven't done one of these in quite a while. So I suppose I was due. Here's some books I cannot wait to get my hands on. :)

A Midsummer's Nightmare
by: Kody Keplinger
Expected Release: June 5th, 2012

Synopsis: Whitley Johnson's dream summer with her divorced dad has turned into a nightmare. She's just met his new fiancée and her kids. The fiancée's son? Whitley's one-night stand from graduation night. Just freakin' great. Worse, she totally doesn't fit in with her dad's perfect new country-club family. So Whitley acts out. She parties. Hard. So hard she doesn't even notice the good things right under her nose: a sweet little future stepsister who is just about the only person she's ever liked, a best friend (even though Whitley swears she doesn't "do" friends), and a smoking-hot guy who isn't her stepbrother...at least, not yet. It will take all three of them to help Whitley get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together.

 Synopsis: The Elector Primo of the Republic has died, with his son assuming power over what’s left of the USA’s West Coast as it teeters on full-blown chaos.

In order to help, though, the rebels want June and Day to kill the new Elector, who may pose an even greater threat than his father.

The Darkest Minds
by: Alexandra Bracken
Expected Release: December 18th, 2012 (My bro's bday!)

Synopsis: When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have been cursed with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby has spent nearly half her life desperately trying to hide the fact that she’s outwitted the camp’s sorting system—that she isn’t powerless, or safe. She’s one of the dangerous ones… and everyone knows what happens to them.

When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she’s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of teens who escaped their own camp, pursued along the way by terrifying bounty hunters. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close to him. Not after what happened to her parents.

When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Before the end, Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.

  •  A Midsummer's Nightmare - I've loved each of Kody's books I've read. The Duff being one of my absolute favorites. I cannot wait to read her next book because I know it's going to one I'll just adore!
  •  Prodigy - Legend was one of my favorite reads of 2011. And meeting Marie and seeing how sweet and awesome she is just made so much more excited about this series. Cannot WAIT to get my hands on this one.
     
  • The Darkest Minds - Many you probably haven't read the book Brightly Woven, am I right? Well you should. Because it is also by Alexandra and it's so magical and amazing. I still want a sequel to that btw! Anywho, the synopsis of this book sounds awesome! And I cannot wait to read it!

I loooved BRIGHTLY WOVEN (I want a sequel, too!) and cannot WAIT fo THE DARKEST MINDS.
