Waiting on Wednesday

Hello Everyone.
As promised, I am back now that I'm done with that horrible class. I will be announcing the winner for the Gift Card Giveaway Hop this evening!!! (You all know I cant do fun stuff from my work computer, thats why I'm waiting until this afternoon) Until then....
Its Wednesday and that means its time for the WoW Post:
Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I decided to focus on the Hunger Games this month due to my ridiculous anticipation of the movie. I have been looking up everything Hunger Games related ever since the trailer was released. It makes me feel better about having to wait ALLLL the way until May. A BUNCH of things are in the works:

And just Because I feel bad for all you Non Hunger Games lovers (shame on you!), I decided to give a regular book:

Book: Auracle
By: Gina Rosati
Publication Date: August 7, 2012
Description: Trapped outside her body, Anna sees and hears but cannot touch the one she longs to hold.
Anna has a secret: she can astrally project out of her body. But when there's an accident and her classmate Taylor gets into Anna's body, what was an exhilarating gift threatens to become a terrifying reality. Anna and her best friend Rei form a plan to set things right, but they don't anticipate the feelings that are beginning to grow between them. This exciting, sensual novel explores the relationship between body and soul and the power of a single touch.
My Thoughts: I love it. The cover is pretty and shows the idea of the story well. The story reminds me of the old legends told around the campfire in Twilight Eclipse (Thats a good thing). Makes me want to read it sooo much!!! 
What books are you waiting for?

I am super excited for the Hunger Games I can't wait to read these books :)

Happy reading and check out my waiting on Wednesday!

Sherre, I think you're almost as crazily obsessed with The Hunger Games as I am. Although, I recently received a copy of The Girl Who Was On Fire, a book of essays on The Hunger Games and it was good but not what I expected. Not sure how I feel about the casting still. Auracle looks amazing. Love the cover.

Natalie said...

Haha did you hear about the Hunger Games cookbook that is coming out too??

Auracle 5 was going to be my choice this week, but I changed it after a recent cover reveal.

I don't why, but I get the feeling you kind of like The Hunger Games :-)


Sherre said...

Sarah: Me too! I am counting down the days!!!

Lan: I probably am!!! Me and my coworker talk about it at work and I think I've convinced one of the others to try it out. I saw the collecton of essays and skipped over it. The word "essay" is like the equivalent to the woed "boring" in my definition, couldnt bring myself to even try it.

Natalie: A cookbook? No, I havent heard about it!!! I am so excited!!! I have to get it!!!

Jennifer: Me too!!!

Petra: Just a bit. How can you tell? :)

I SERIOUSLY have to read The Hunger Games immediately. Like, it's pathetic that I've waited this long.

I'm loving the astral projection concept in Auracle. I don't think it's really been explored in YA.

Have an amazing reading week!
