This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

Author: Anna Jarzab 
Release Date: October 8, 2013
Published by: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Everything repeats.
You. Your best friend. Every person you know.
Many worlds. Many lives--infinite possibilities.
Welcome to the multiverse.
Sixteen-year-old Sasha Lawson has only ever known one small, ordinary life. When she was young, she loved her grandfather's stories of parallel worlds inhabited by girls who looked like her but led totally different lives. Sasha never believed such worlds were real--until now, when she finds herself thrust into one against her will.
To prevent imminent war, Sasha must slip into the life of an alternate version of herself, a princess who has vanished on the eve of her arranged marriage. If Sasha succeeds in fooling everyone, she will be returned home; if she fails, she'll be trapped in another girl's life forever. As time runs out, Sasha finds herself torn between two worlds, two lives, and two young men vying for her love--one who knows her secret, and one who thinks she's someone she's not.(Summary from Goodreads)

Parallel universe story! An ordinary girl in one world, a princess who needs to save the world in another. Which life would you rather lead?


(Divergent, Book 3)
Author: Veronica Roth
Release Date: Katherine Tegen Books
Published by: October 22, 2013

One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation-like a single choice-changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered-fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she's known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris's new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature-and of herself-while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love. (Summary from Goodreads)

I cannot wait to find out what happens next in this series! Plus this cover is gorgeous! I think what I love most about this is not only the epic action and adventure that go along with the way this world is set up, but the fact that this takes place right down the road from us in Chicago! 

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. Yay! Allegiant is so close. I just want to know how it ends and I need for the ending not to be lame as well. I'm super excited for Tandem as well. It sounds pretty awesome, right? Great picks this week :)

  2. I haven't heard of Tandem before, but it sounds great! And I can't wait to find out how the Divergent series ends. I didn't enjoy Insurgent like I did Divergent, but that twist we were left with I am dying to find out how it all turns out!
