Waiting on Wednesday #229 - Run & And I Darken

"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...

Run 
Author: Kody Keplinger 
Release Date: June 28, 2016 
Published by: Scholastic 

Bo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who's not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinson's are a bad lot, but Bo doesn't care what anyone thinks.

Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents' overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter--protect her from what, Agnes isn't quite sure.

Despite everything, Bo and Agnes become best friends. And it's the sort of friendship that runs truer and deeper than anything else.

So when Bo shows up in the middle of the night, with police sirens wailing in the distance, desperate to get out of town, Agnes doesn't hesitate to take off with her. But running away and not getting caught will require stealing a car, tracking down Bo's dad, staying ahead of the authorities, and--worst of all--confronting some ugly secrets. (Summary from Goodreads)

Doesn't this sound like a crazy powerful friendship building story? These girls are going to be very interesting to get to know as I'm already intrigued by the synopsis descriptions of them!


(The Conquerors Saga, Book 1)
Author: Kiersten White 
Release Date: July 7, 2016 (paperback)
Published by: Corgi Childrens/Delacorte Press

No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwyla likes it that way.

Ever since she and her brother were abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman sultan's courts, Lada has known that ruthlessness is the key to survival. For the lineage that makes her and her brother special also makes them targets.

Lada hones her skills as a warrior as she nurtures plans to wreak revenge on the empire that holds her captive. Then she and Radu meet the sultan's son, Mehmed, and everything changes. No Mehmed unwittingly stands between Lada and Radu as they transform from siblings to rivals, and the ties of love and loyalty that bind them together are stretched to breaking point. (Summary from Goodreads)

Oh how this sounds chilling and dramatic. I cannot wait to try this one! 

What are you waiting on this week?
