Waiting on Wednesday #230 - This Savage Song & Invincible

"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: Victoria Schwab 
Release Date: July 5, 2016 
Published by: Greenwillow Books 

There's no such thing as safe in a city at war, a city overrun with monsters. In this dark urban fantasy from author Victoria Schwab, a young woman and a young man must choose whether to become heroes or villains--and friends or enemies--with the future of their home at stake.

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city--a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent--but he's one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who's just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August's secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives. (Summary from Goodreads)

August's problem of being a monster intrigues me. I want to see how Kate and August's story develops.


(The Twixt, Book 4)
Author: Dawn Metcalf 
Release Date: July 26, 2016 
Published by: Harlequin Teen 

Love must be stronger than fear, stronger than fate.

Invincible.

The future of two worlds depends on it.

Joy Malone has learned to live between two realities, surviving mortal threats and agonizing betrayals. And she's found true love. But the world of the Twixt is in chaos, and the Council wants someone to blame...Facing a danger greater than any she's ever known, Joy must find the strength to rely on herself as her allies fall away, because Joy must find the strength to rely on herself as her allies fall away, because Joy is no longer sure just who--or what--she is. She knows only that her deepest secret is also her greatest vulnerability and the key to saving them all.

As she fights to protect her friends and family and to unite two disparate worlds, Joy has to trust that some bonds are stronger than magic.

 (Summary from Goodreads)

I am so completely in love with the series! The characters feel like home to me.
