Waiting on Wednesday: Rebel & Mortal Heart

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I have two picks for this week:

Rebel JKT HC des3.indd

Rebel (Reboot #2) by Amy Tintera
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release date: May 13, 2014

The sequel to the action-packed Reboot is a can't-miss thrill ride, perfect for fans of James Patterson, Veronica Roth, and Marie Lu.

After coming back from death as Reboots and being trained by HARC as soldiers, Wren and Callum have finally escaped north, where they hope to find a life of freedom. But when they arrive at the Reboot Reservation, it isn't what they expected. Under the rule of a bloodthirsty leader, Micah, the Reboots are about to wage an all-out war on the humans. Although Wren's instincts are telling her to set off into the wilderness on their own and leave the battle far behind, Callum is unwilling to let his human family be murdered. When Micah commits the ultimate betrayal, the choice is made for them. But Micah has also made a fatal mistake . . . he's underestimated Wren and Callum.

The explosive finale to the Reboot duology is full of riveting action and steamy love scenes as Wren and Callum become rebels against their own kind.

~ I really enjoyed Reboot and I love the fact that this is a duology and NOT a trilogy. There isn’t too long of a wait either!


Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by Robin LaFevers
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Release date: November 4, 2014


Annith has watched her gifted sisters at the convent come and go, carrying out their dark dealings in the name of St. Mortain, patiently awaiting her own turn to serve Death. But her worst fears are realized when she discovers she is being groomed by the abbess as a Seeress, to be forever sequestered in the rock and stone womb of the convent. Feeling sorely betrayed, Annith decides to strike out on her own.

She has spent her whole life training to be an assassin. Just because the convent has changed its mind doesn't mean she has.

~ Is anyone who reads this series NOT waiting for this book? Gorgeous cover and I have a feeling Annith’s story will be both heartbreaking and beautiful.
