Waiting on Wednesday #153 - I Was Here & Red Queen

"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: Gayle Forman
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Published by: Viking Juvenile

Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until...they weren't anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything--so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg's college town to pack up the belonging left behind she discovers that there's a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg's heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can't open--until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend's death gets thrown into question.(Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds like a heartbreaking story, but in a good way as most Gayle Forman books do.

Author: Victoria Aveyard
Release Date: February 10, 2014
Published by: Orion 

The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rules of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from the Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win? (Summary from Goodreads)

I'm so very intrigued by this book! The cover, the description, the blood...all of it!! I want it immediately!! 

What are you waiting on this week?
