Waiting on Wednesday #216 - Wink Poppy Midnight & Lady Renegades

"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: April Genevieve Tucholke 
Release Date: March 22, 2016

every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous. (Summary from Goodreads)

I love a story with multiple, clear voices. This one sounds unique.

Just as Harper Price starts coming to terms with her role as David Stark's battle-ready Paladin, protector, and girlfriend--her world goes crazy all over again.

Overwhelmed by his Oracle powers, David flees Pine Grove and starts turning teenaged girls into Paladins--and these young ladies seem to think that Harper is the enemy David needs protecting from. Ordinarily, Harper would be able to fight off any Paladin who comes her way, but her powers have been dwindling since David left town, which means her life is on the line yet again.

Now, it's a desperate race for Harper to find and rescue David before she backslides from superhero to your garden-variety type-A belle. (Summary from Goodreads)

This is such a fun series. I can't wait to keep reading it.

  1. Yes and yes. The first pick, "Wink, Poppy, Midnight", sounds super mysterious and makes me want to read more NOW. "Lady Renegades" is one I'm gonna have to check out too because I rarely read books in the male POV. Great picks! Feel free to check out my WoW.
