Waiting On Wednesday #25

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:

Frost Burned (Mercedes Thompson, #7)


Shapeshifter Mercy Thompson's life is calming down, at least enough that she can focus on mundane matters like Black Friday sales. But on her return, Mercy is unable to contact her mate, Alpha Adam Hauptman, or the other members of their pack. All she knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam's disappearance may be related - and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from the most unlikely of allies: the vampire seethe.

Why I'm Waiting:

Um...hello? It's a new Mercy Thompson book. I MUST HAVES IT!
I tell you this is one that I'm going to be preordering. I love this series and I can't wait til the release on March 5th.

The Gathering Dark


A mysterious teen boy knows the secrets of Keira’s dangerous hallucinations in this gripping romantic fantasy from the author of Claire de Lune.Keira’s hallucinating. First it’s a door hovering above the road; then it’s a tree in her living room. But with her parents fighting and her best friend not speaking to her, Keira can’t tell anyone about her breakdown.
Until she meets Walker. They have an electric connection, and somehow he can see the same shadowy images plaguing Keira.
But trusting Walker may be more dangerous than Keira could have ever imagined. The more she confides in him, the more intense—and frightening—her visions become. Because Walker is not what he appears to be. And neither are her visions.

Expected Publication Date: February 12th 2013 by Simon Pulse

Why I'm Waiting:

I think the cover is absolutely gorgeous and I'm kind of in love with it. I've heard great things about Claire De Lune but I still have to read that one so I'm hoping this is as good as it sounds. My only concern is that there will be a dreaded case of insta love between Walker and Keira. But I'm excited to read it none the less.
