Waiting on Wednesday (And No More Radio Silence)

Wow, been a while right?
I just couldn't find the time to do a post, and it's really been gnawing at me. I'm reading TONS as usual (Okay, how great was Clockwork Princess? Pretty GREAT!) but there's just no time to post anything, and yeah sure, you've alllllll heard me whine the same thing before, I do it again and again and agaaaaaaaaaainnnnn.....

So. Right. Waiting on Wednesday. Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, featuring all the latest awesome.

Without further ado, here are my picks:

INK by Amanda Sun
Expected Publication : June 25th, 2013 by Harlequin Teen

GOODREADS SAYS:



I looked down at the paper, still touching the tip of my shoe. I reached for it, flipping the page over to look.

Scrawls of ink outlined a drawing of a girl lying on a bench.

A sick feeling started to twist in my stomach, like motion sickness.

And then the girl in the drawing turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine.

On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.

Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they'll both be targets.

Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.

I SAY:

I ADORE ANIME. I love the colors, the craziness, the intense storylines. Ink sounds right up my alley! In fact, the title Paper Gods reminds me of some anime. There were 3 sisters who could make paper stuff come to life...or something like that, I don't know. How SQUEEEEE worthy is the cover?

Indelible by Dawn Metcalf
Expected Publication: July 30th, 2013 by...um, Harlequin Teen again (See the pattern?)

GOODREADS SAYS:

Some things are permanent.

Indelible.

And they cannot be changed back.

Joy Malone learns this the night she sees a stranger with all-black eyes across a crowded room—right before the mystery boy tries to cut out her eye. Instead, the wound accidentally marks her as property of Indelible Ink, and this dangerous mistake thrusts Joy into an incomprehensible world—a world of monsters at the window, glowing girls on the doorstep, and a life that will never be the same.

Now, Joy must pretend to be Ink’s chosen one—his helper, his love, his something for the foreseeable future...and failure to be convincing means a painful death for them both. Swept into a world of monsters, illusion, immortal honor and revenge, Joy discovers that sometimes, there are no mistakes.

Somewhere between reality and myth lies…

THE TWIXT


I SAY:

That blurb is just MADE OF AWESOME. CUT OUT HER EYE! WTF! Monsters, Illusion, bad boys, glowing glowing GLOWING GIRLS? And oh, you beautiful, beautiful cover. *wibble* This one better be good or I'm gonna be RANTING.
