Waiting on Wednesday #148 - Top Ten Clues You're Clueless & Lumiere

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

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

Author: Liz Czukas
Release Date: December 9, 2014
Published by: HarperTeen

Top Five Things That Are Ruining Chloe's day...

5) Working the 6:30 a.m. shift at GoodFoods Market
4) Crashing a cart into a customer's car right in front on her snarky coworker Sammi
3) Trying to rock the "drowned rat" look after being caught in a snowstorm
2) Making zero progress with her crush, Tyson (see #3)
1) Being accused -- along with her fellow teenage employees--of stealing upwards of $10,000

Chloe would rather be anywhere than locked in work jail (aka the break room) with five of her coworkers...even if one of them is Tyson. But if they can band together to clear their names, what looks like a total disaster might just make Chloe's list of Top Ten Best Moments.
 (Summary from Goodreads)

Number One: I like the cover.
Number Two: I love lists!
Number Three: This sounds like a fun, quirky story.
I'm in.

(The Illumination Paradox, Book 1)
Author: Jacqueline Pynaert
Release Date: December 15, 2014
Published by: 

One determined girl. One resourceful boy. One miracle machine that could destroy everything.

After an unexplained flash shatters her world, seventeen-year-old Eyelet Elsworth sets out to find the Illuminator, her father's prized invention. With it, she hopes to cure herself of her debilitating seizures before Professor Smrt--her father's arch nemesis--discovers her secret and locks her away in an asylum.

Pursued by Smrt, Eyelet locates the Illuminator only to see it whisked away. She follows the thief into the world of the unknown, compelled not only by her quest but by the allure of the stranger--Urlick Babbit--who harbors secrets of his own.

Together, they endure deadly Vapours and criminal-infested woods in pursuit of the same prize, only to discover the miracle machine they hoped would solve their problems may in fact be their biggest problem of all. (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds amazing! I'm in!
