Waiting on Wednesday #185 - The Rest of Us Just Live Here & The Copper Gaunlet

"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: Patrick Ness
Release Date: August 27, 2015 
Published by: 

What if you aren't the Chosen One?

The one who's supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you're like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week's end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions. (Summary from Goodreads)

Just reading the description of this book made me chuckle. I want to find out how Mikey lives an ordinary life in an extraordinary world. 

(Magisterium, Book 2)
Author: Holly Black & Cassandra Clare
Release Date: September 1, 2015
Published by: Scholastic

Callum Hunt's summer break isn't like other kids'. His closest companion is a Chaos-ridden wolf, Havoc. His father suspects him of being secretly evil. And, of course, most kids aren't heading back to the magical world of the Magisterium in the fall.

It's not easy for Call...and it gets even harder after he checks out his basement and discovers that his dad might be trying might be trying to destroy both him and Havoc.

Call escapes to the Magisterium -- but things only intensify there. The Alkahest -- a copper gauntlet capable of separating certain magicians from their magic -- has been stolen. And in their search to discover the culprit, Call and his friends Aaron and Tamara awaken the attention of some very dangerous foes -- and get closer to an even more dangerous truth. (Summary from Goodreads)

I loved book 1 in this series and cannot wait to get my hands on book 2!
