Waiting on Wednesday #68


 
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: 
 
Hunted (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #6)
 
Summary:
 
For a two-thousand-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt—Artemis and Diana—for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is . . . run like hell.

Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok—AKA the Apocalypse. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living—and still have a world to live in.

Length: 400 pages (Mass Market Paperback)
Expected Publication Date: June 25th 2013 by Del Rey
 
Why I'm Waiting:
 
I'm currently reading the first book in this series and I am absolutely loving it. In fact I'm going to be finished reading it in about a half hour and it is so good. I absolutely love Kevin Hearne's writing style! He's hilarious and I don't think I go more than 5 pages without giggling. I know I'm getting a bit ahead of myself since this one is the 6th book but I've already got books 2 and 3 on hold at the library. If you haven't checked this series out I highly suggest doing so!
 
The Spirit Keeper: A Novel
 
Summary:
 
A fiery frontier woman falls deeply in love with her Native American captor on an epic journey

The thirteenth child conceived of miserable Irish exiles, Katie O’Toole dreams of a different life. Little does she know that someone far away is dreaming of her.

In 1747, savages raid her family home, and seventeen-year-old Katie is taken captive. Syawa and Hector have been searching for her, guided by Syawa’s dreams. A young Holyman, Syawa believes Katie is the subject of his Vision: the Creature of Fire and Ice, destined to bring a great gift to his people. Despite her flaming hair and ice-blue eyes, Katie is certain he is mistaken, but faced with returning to her family, she agrees to join them. She soon discovers that in order to fulfill Syawa’s Vision, she must first become his Spirit Keeper, embarking on an epic journey that will change her life—and heart—forever.

Why I'm Waiting:
 
I gotta be honest the cover is what really makes me want to read the novel. That isn't to say that the summary isn't awesome and enticing which it is, but there's just something about the cover that's screaming "READ ME" to me.
 
What are YOU waiting for this Wednesday?
