Waiting on Wednesday #28

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released!

Here are my picks for the week:
 
 
Mind Games (Mind Games, #1)
 
Summary:
 
Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.

Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.

In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.

Length: 256 pages
 Expected Publication Date: February 19th 2013 by HarperTeen             
 
Why I'm waiting:
 
I haven't read the author's Paranormalcy trilogy yet but this one seems like it's more to my taste. The summary makes it sound like a really intense read and I can't wait to read it.
 
The Madman's Daughter
 
Summary:
 
London, 1894. Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself—working as a maid, attending church on Sundays, and trying not to think about the scandal that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumors about her father’s gruesome experiments. But when she learns her father is alive and continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the accusations were true.

Juliet is accompanied by the doctor’s handsome young assistant and an enigmatic castaway, who both attract Juliet for very different reasons. They travel to the island only to discover the depths of her father’s madness: he has created animals that have been vivisected to resemble, speak, and behave as humans. Worse, one of the creatures has turned violent and is killing the island’s inhabitants. Juliet knows she must end her father’s dangerous experiments and escape the island, even though her horror is mixed with her own scientific curiosity. As the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father’s genius—and madness—in her own blood.

Length: 368 pages
Expected Publication Date: January 29th 2013 by Balzer + Bray / HarperTeen      
 
Why I'm Waiting:
 
This one sounds so much like The Islnd of Doctor Moreau by H.G. Wells what's not to like? Monstrous experiments and mad geniuses? Sign me up. This one is the one I'm most excited about this week.

    1. It does look quite creepy doesn't it! I may have to read the Paranormalcy series since everyone loves it so much. Maybe it will help keep my mind off Mind Games until it's released!
