Waiting on Wednesday #1

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

There are a couple of books coming out next week that I pre-ordered and can't wait to get:

Also Known As (AKA) by Robin Benway
Publication: February 26, 2013

Amazon Summary:
Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations.

Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She'll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school's security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case . . . all while trying not to blow her cover.

Fragments (Partials) by Dan Wells
Publication: February 26, 2013

Amazon's Summary:
Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence—it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?

Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed.

The second installment in the pulse-pounding Partials saga is the story of the eleventh hour of humanity's time on Earth, a journey deep into places unknown to discover the means—and even more important, a reason—for our survival.

Do you want to read these too? Do you have any WOW titles you'd like to share?

  1. I just reviewed Also Known As yesterday and I really enjoyed it-a frothy fun read and highly recommended!

    1. I haven't read my updates from Goodreads yet, but I'll look at your review. It reminded me of Ally Carter, who I love. :) I'm glad you liked it. It makes me look forward to reading it even more!

  2. I LOVED Also Known As. I haven't read the Partials series yet....

    1. It reminded me so much of Ally Carter, who I love! I do like your recommendations. ;)

      I'm trying to think if you would like Partials. I think you would. It's a little different than I thought it would be, in a good way. It's definitely a sci-fi/dystopian, but you don't really get to the sci-fi part until later. What sold it to me was the great world building, characters, and plot. I really can't wait to read Fragments! Of course I have to read Scarlet and a couple of other end books in some series before then, so we'll see when I get to it.


I love comments! I try to read and reply to them all. Feel free to agree or disagree and generally share your thoughts with me.
