Waiting on Wednesdays

Waiting On Wednesday, is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and asks the question, "What are books are you anxiously waiting on?"

Two of the books that I've been anxiously awaiting have just recently come out. The Neon Court and Red Glove. Both books are part of series I've been reading and I was so excited for them I've already consumed them, and enjoyed both I might add. 

At first when I saw this idea I couldn't even think of a book I was excited for. Silly me. Of course there's books I can't wait for. 

So here it is, a book I'm very excited for. 

 From Goodreads: A fallen angel haunted by her past. Yearning for her immortal beloved. Forever searching for answers. Who will show her Mercy?

Mercy has lost herself. She can’t count how many times she’s “woken up” in a new body, and assumed a new life, only to move on again and again. During the day she survives in the human world on instinct and at night her dreams are haunted by him. Mercy’s heart would know him anywhere. But her memory refuses to cooperate.

But this time is different. When Mercy wakes up she meets Ryan, an eighteen year old reeling from the loss of his twin sister who was kidnapped two years ago. Everyone else has given up hope, but Ryan believes his sister is still alive. Using a power she doesn’t fully comprehend, Mercy realizes that Ryan is right. His sister is alive and together they can find her. For the first time since she can remember, Mercy has a purpose; she can help. So she doesn’t understand why the man in her dreams cautions her not to interfere. But as Ryan and Mercy come closer to solving the dark mystery of his sister’s disappearance, danger looms just one step behind.

Will Mercy be able to harness her true self and extraordinary power in time?

Another blogger (sorry, I can't for the life of me remember who) read and reviewed this awhile ago and I was VERY intrigued. I'm not even sure why; I don't really like fallen angel stories but this one looks really good. It comes out May 17th. Let's hope it lives up to all my expectations. 

Have you heard of this one? What books are you anxiously awaiting?


  1. I'm not familiar with this one, but I like the cover and that's good enough for me! Hey, welcome to blogging!

  2. Ooooh I have this one from netgalley - I am going to try read it this month.
    Welcome to the exciting world of book blogging!

  3. I don't normally like fallen angel stories either, but am hoping this one is better. It sounds kinda cool. Good choice.

  4. I had not heard of this one before. Hope you enjoy it when it comes out, and good luck with your blog :)

  5. Sarah, yeah that whole "don't judge a book by its cover" doesn't work for me. I always judge a book by its cover, or at least judge whether I'll pick it up to see what it's about.

    Sally, I'm super jealous! I'll be watching for your review.

    Jenny, yeah, I don't know what it is about this one but it sounds good and I'm excited.

    The book girl, thank you for stopping by.
