Waiting on Wednesday #226- Wanderlost & Vicarious

"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: Jen Malone 
Release Date: May 31, 2016 
Published by: HarperTeen 

Not all who wander are lost, but Aubree Sadler most definitely is on this novel's whirlwind trip through Europe.

Aubree can't think of a better place to be than in perfectly boring Ohio, and she's ready for a relaxing summer. But when her older sister, Elizabeth, gets into real trouble, Aubree is talked into taking over Elizabeth's summer job, leading a group of senior citizens on a bus tour though Europe.

Aubree doesn't even make it to the first stop in Amsterdam before their perfect plan unravels, leaving her with no phone, no carefully prepared binder full of helpful facts, and an unexpected guest: the tour company owner's son, Sam. Considering she's pretending to be Elizabeth, she absolutely shouldn't fall for him, but she can't help it, especially with the most romantic European cities as the backdrop for their love story.

But her relationship with Same is threatening to ruin her relationship with her sister, and she feels like she's letting both of them down. Aubree knows this trip may show her who she really is -- she just hopes she likes where she ends up. (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds like a great YA summer romance to pick up and enjoy. I can't wait!


(Vicarious, Book 1)
Author: Paula Stokes 
Release Date: August 16, 2016 
Published by: Tor Teen 

Winter Kim and her sister, Rose, have always been inseparable. Together, the two of them surviving growing up in a Korean orphanage and being trafficked into the United States.

Now they work as digital stunt girls for Rose's ex-boyfriend, Gideon, engaging in dangerous and enticing activities while recording their neural impulses for his Vicarious Sensory Experiences, or ViSEs. Whether it's bungee jumping, shark diving, or grinding up against celebrities at the city's hottest dance clubs, Gideon can make it happen for you, for a price.

When Rose disappears and a ViSE recording of her murder is delivered to Gideon, Winter won't rest until she finds her sister's killer. But when the clues she uncovers conflict with the neural recordings her sister made, Winter isn't sure what to believe. To find out what happened to Rose, she'll have to untangle what's real from what only seems real, risking her life in the process. (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds incredible. So different and good. I can't wait to try it! 

What are you waiting on this week?
