Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating... 

Title: "Red Glove"
Author: Holly Black
Release Date: April 5, 2011 

From Goodreads: "After rescuing his brothers from Zacharov's retribution and finding out that Lila, the girl he has loved his whole life, will never, ever be his now that his mother has worked her, Cassel is trying to reestablish some kind of normalcy in his life. That was never going to be easy for someone from a worker family tied to one of the big crime families and a mother whose cons get more reckless by the day. But Cassel is also coming to terms with what it means to be a transformation worker and figuring out how to have friends.

But normal doesn't last very long--soon Cassel is being courted by both sides of the law and is forced to confront his past. A past he remembers only in scattered fragments and one that could destroy his family and his future. Cassel will have to decide whose side he wants to be on because neutrality is not an option. And then he will have to pull off his biggest con ever to survive."

Title: "Luminous"
Author: Dawn Metcalf
Release Date: July 7, 2011

From Goodreads: "When sixteen-year-old Consuela discovers she can remove her skin, revealing a lustrous mother-of-pearl skeleton, she slips into a parallel world known as the Flow, a place inhabited by archetypal teens with extraordinary abilities. Crafting skins out of anything – air, water, feathers, fire – she is compelled to save ordinary people from dying before their time. Yet now someone is murdering them, one by one, and Consuela finds herself the focus of an intricate plot to end the Flow forever when all she really wants is to get back home, alive."  

What are you waiting for? 


  1. I am for sure waiting on Luminous! But I still haven't read White Cat yet! If I can somehow manage to read it before Rad Glove comes out, that would be ideal!

  2. I think that Luminous has the potential to either be really good or really creepy. I mean, the girl discovers how to take her skin off to expose her skeleton! How does one go about discovering that?

    As for White Cat/ Red Glove. I just read White Cat the other day and hope to have my review up soon. I really enjoyed it, so I am excited to see what is store for Cas and the gang.

  3. I really have to buy White Cat !! I love the cover of Luminous !! Great picks ;)

  4. I wasn't thrilled with White Cat, but I do have Red Glove on my tbr. Not sure about Luminous. Hope you get that one and tell me if I need to read it! :)

  5. Haven't heard of Luminous. Tried reading White Cat, but just couldn't get into it. But the cover for Red Glove looks sort of promising!

    Here's my WoW

  6. I love the sound of these two books! They both sound great. Nice picks, Avery :)

  7. I'm thrilled that your WoW includes LUMINOUS! (And in the company of Holly Black's fantastic sequel to WHITE CAT!)

    Hope you enjoy it!


  8. Great picks! I still need to read White cat though =P


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!

Though I appreciate awards I have decided to make my blog an "award-free zone". Unfortunately I do not have the time to hold up my end of award-giving. But again, I appreciate you thinking of me!
