Waiting on Wednesday #6

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.  Here are the books that I am most look forward to reading.

Wolf Springs Chronicles: Unleashed by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viquie

UK Publication Date: 8 Dec 2011
Publisher: Doubleday
Pages: 400

Synopsis from

Who do you run with?
Who do you run from?
Who do you run to?

Katelyn is reluctant to start at her new school until she meets the handsome and intriguing Trick Sokolov. He's the closest thing to home she finds - an irreverent drama nerd who writes poetry, drives too fast, and has no desire to serve as her best guy friend. Before long, the popular Cordelia Fenner befriends her and invites her home, and Katelyn begins to think her new life might be ok after all, especially when she meets Cordelia's extremely hot brother, Justin. But as she spends more time with Cordelia's family, she realises that the Fenners are bad, mad, and dangerous to know - but how can she give up her only friend, and how can she ignore the Justin sets her blood on fire with a single look?

One night, Katelyn is viciously attacked and she begins to change in ways she cannot imagine.

She's now caught in the middle of an ancient war between werewolf clans - a war that Katelyn is detined to end. claims that this book has "all the heat, atmosphere and feudal background of Fallen and a love triangle to rival Twilight". I am really interested to see if it lives up to that claim. It sounds really interesting.

Buried Thunder by Tim Bowler

UK Publication Date: Jan 2012
Publisher: OUP Oxford
Pages: 240

Synopsis from

What secrets lay buried in the heart of a forest?

When Maya strays into the forest she also walks straight into a nightmare. It's not just the horrific discovery she makes among the trees, it's what's waiting for her at home. Something too terrifying to believe in. She's not even sure she believes it herself. Perhaps she's going mad, only imagining the sounds at night and the feeling of being stalked. Maybe she didn't see anything in that forest after all?

And there's another question: what was she doing there in the first dusk?

All she knows is that the eyes of the fox drew her there. They will do so again.

This is another book that sounds really interesting? Can't wait to read this late into the night.

So these are the books that I'm most looking forward to reading. What are you looking forward to?


  1. Buried Thunder sounds really good! I've never heard of these books before so thanks for sharing! :)

    Are you reading the Night Circus? How is it? (I have the ebook version but I haven't had time to read it yet)

  2. Hi Vicky

    I know what you mean about Buried Thunder, I don't like the cover much.

    Yes I am reading The Night Circus. I'm nearly 100 pages in and have to say its really good. Hopefully the review should be up by the weekend.

  3. Unleashed sounds amazing! I think I'm going to add it! New follower!

    Livre De Amour-Books of Love

  6. Unleashed sounds really good! It's been awhile since I've read a good werewolf book!

  7. Wow, Unleased has some big shoes to fill if they are making those kinds of predictions. I don't know if I can handle another Twilightesque love triangle though. I think one was enough for me!

    New follower!

  8. Both of these sound amazing! I'm not sure if I'm ready to jump in to something that is bragging about its love-triangle epicness, but Buried Thunder has me completely intrigued!

  9. I love Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguie, and I'm almost positive that whatever books they write can live up to any claims made. They are wonderful writers!

    Buried Thunder looks creeptastic and wonderful. Definitely interested!

    Have an amazing reading week, Paul!
