Waiting and Waiting and Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I like to put a twist on this idea and also look at what books I'm waiting to read but haven't gotten to yet. 

I have two this week. 

1.  Captivate by Carrie Jones
I read Need a really long time ago - right when it first came out.  Of course the cover really drew me in.  Isn't it pretty? But I ended up buying it for several reasons. I thought the story sounded interesting.  Pixies = cool I thought :)  I also thought it would be another book to hook my students with especially with so many of them reading Twilight (I know, I know not every book should be compared to Twilight but..... I worked in this case)  The story turned out to be pretty good.  It had some weakness, but over-all a fun read.  At the time I had no clue there was a sequel coming, but I was happy to see one.  There were some questions in Need that needed answering. 

2.  Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
I've read so many great things about this book, so I can't WAIT to read it.  I have it sitting on my shelf, and it's so pretty.  It will be one of my next reads.  I know you're wondering why I don't just read it now.  I've got some books I need to read for reviews, so BC will have to wait.  Soon tho - very soon!

So what books are you waiting on this week???


  1. Sounds very good. I love the covers of both of the books and i think everybod is waiting for the release of beautiful am I..

    Here's mine:

  2. Great picks! I want to read Captivate too & I just finished BC (You've got some will power! But it's worth the wait)

  3. Oooh, I want to read both of those also!!

  4. Captivate looks amazing - I still need to read Need - but think I might push it to closer to when Captivate comes out, so I can read them both together! :) Awesome picks!

  5. Good picks, and your blog is adorable with all the owls!
    The Crowded Leaf.

  6. I'm waiting for both of those as well! Here's mine...
