Waiting On Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we can all spotlight the upcoming book releases we're eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on! This week, for my first Waiting on Wednesday ever, I'm going to go with the blatantly obvious choice of; The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead as well as Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter.

  1. The Golden Lily
Author: Richelle Mead
Release Date: June 12th 2012
Publisher: Penguin Books
Add it: Goodreads

Blurb: The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy spinoff series. Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students--children of the wealthy and powerful--carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought. Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead's breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.-  (Goodreads) 


2. Goddess Interrupted 
Author: Aimee Carter
Release Date: March 27th 2012 (Available now!)
PublisherHarlequin Teen
Add it: Goodreads

Blurb: KATE WINTERS HAS WON IMMORTALITY. BUT IF SHE WANTS A LIFE WITH HENRY IN THE UNDERWORLD, SHE'LL HAVE TO FIGHT FOR IT.Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans. As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future. Henry's first wife, Persephone. - (Goodreads)

Just look at the two covers! Are't they just so beautiful? I chose these two beautiful looking novels, as I loved the first instalments to both their series'. I love the writing styles of the authors as well as the characters including in their stories'. Mark the calendar (if you haven't already) : June 12th! 

Now, which books are you waiting on (link me)?
