"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
This week I'm waiting on...
Survive by Alex Morel
Publication Date: August 2, 2012
Hatchet meets Lost in this modern-day adventure tale of one girl's reawakening.
Jane is on a plane on her way home to Montclair, New Jersey, from a mental hospital. She is about to kill herself. Just before she can swallow a lethal dose of pills, the plane hits turbulence and everything goes black. Jane wakes up amidst piles of wreckage and charred bodies on a snowy mountaintop. There is only one other survivor: a boy named Paul, who inspires Jane to want to fight for her life for the first time.
Jane and Paul scale icy slopes and huddle together for warmth at night, forging an intense emotional bond. But the wilderness is a vast and lethal force, and only one of them will survive.
Why I want it: "Only one of them will survive"?!?! REALLY?!? And I love that it's compared to Lost. (I miss that show.) Also, debut author! But really, "only one of them will survive"... I feel like crying already.
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
Publication Date: July 3, 2012
Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair...
Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland and immediately falls under his spell.
Peter is unlike anyone she's ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything—her family, her future—to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she's always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter.
With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it's the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who's everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.
From the New York Times bestselling author of Peaches comes a magical and bewitching story of the romance between a fearless heroine and the boy who wouldn't grow up.
Why I want it: Retelling of Peter Pan! Love that story. I'm interested to see the story from Tiger Lily's point of view.
Touched by Cyn Balog
Publication Date: August 14, 2012
Nick Cross always listens to the voice in his head. Because if he doesn't? Things can go really, really wrong. Like the day he decided to go off script and saved a girl from being run over... and let another one drown. Trying to change the future doesn't work.
But this summer at the Jersey Shore, something's about to happen that Nick never could have predicted. He meets a girl named Taryn and finds out about the Book of Touch. Now the path that he thought he was on begins to shift... and there's no way to stop things from happening. Or is there?
In a life where there are no surprises, nothing has prepared Nick for what he's about to discover - or the choice he will be forced to make...
Why I want it: I wonder what the Book of Touch is. And there's lots of cover love going on here, too.
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

Except for Tiger Lily all the books are on my list :) Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I am so excited for survive!! I kind of wish the summary didn't say one would survive, but we don't know which one. :) Tigerlily looks really good I am excited to see books come out that are retellings from a secondary characters prespective.ReplyDelete
Tocuhed sounds interesting and it's already gone on to my Kindle Wish List.ReplyDelete
I hope Survive gets a Kindle release as that has a interesting premise as well.
Survive DOES sound awesome! I want it already >.< And Tiger Lily and Touched are going up on my TBR List as well :D Great picks!ReplyDelete
These all look awesome! Great picks :)ReplyDelete
Survive sounds amazing! Great picks!ReplyDelete
Only one of them will survive, don't know if I'd be able for this, I hate when characters die. I'm not a fan of fairy tale re-tellings so probably wont be reading Tiger Lily, but I am also looking forward to Touched. It sounds really goodReplyDelete
Ohhhh, I have a copy of Tiger Lily waiting to be read on my shelf and I'm so excited to start it -- I'm in love with the story of Peter Pan too! And I've peeked at it, and it's actually told from Tinkerbell's perspective of Tiger Lily -- isn't that neat? :) And Survive and Touched sound really cool too!ReplyDelete
Awesome picks for your WOW this week, Pamela! I hope you like all of these books when you get the chance to read them! <3 :)
Tiger Lily sounds SO good! And this is the first I've heard of Survive but WOW, it sounds intense! And Touched has one creepy cover!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by Novels, News and Notes!
These all sound like such great reads, but I think I'm most excited about Tiger Lily! I'm a huge fan of re-tellings (especially when they're done well), so I can't wait to read it.ReplyDelete
I actually just finished reading Tiger Lily this weekend and it was good! A bit dark, but really good!
Ohh great pick I so want to read Tiger Lily too, I mean peter pan was just awesomeReplyDelete
Oooooh I haven't heard of that first one but it definitely looks good! And the others look great too! Thanks for stopping by my WoW :)ReplyDelete
This is my first time seeing Survived! It looks like a great read. I'm a little concerned though because its compared to Hatchet which I hated, and Lost which I loved! I will just have to read it and see I suppose. Good picks!ReplyDelete
I had Survive as my WOW a few weeks back. I just love the blurb and the pale colours! Amazing!ReplyDelete
Tiger Lily... Well. Peter Pan, what more can I say?
Great picks. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
I'm SO waiting on Survive!!!! :) It's definitely my cup of tea. Can't wait!ReplyDelete
My internet wasn't working right yesterday and this didn't go through. Let's try one more time!ReplyDelete
I think Survive sounds awesome. The "only one will survive" bit got me too. Touched sounds good too. I will have to add them both to my list. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my WoW post yesterday :D
It will be released this August, what will I do for now is to wait patiently until it comes out to my favorite bookstore':)ReplyDelete
