Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Expected publication:  October 2nd 2012
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Synopsis(from Goodreads):
Sixteen-year-old Evie Greene thought her horrific apocalyptic hallucinations were a sign that she was slowly losing her mind. But when her visions come true, decimating the world around her and killing everyone she loves, Evie is forced to accept that she was seeing the future.

Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she turns to wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate, the gorgeous and dangerous Jackson Deveaux for help.
 
As Jackson and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have got the same call and discover that Evie is not the only one with special powers. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and as the battle between good and evil intensifies, it is not always clear who is on which side…

Yet another amazingly interesting book to be released on October 2nd. It's going to be a great day this year with at least two possibly great books coming out (at least I've mentioned only two on my posts so far)

Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction by  
 Expected publication: August 28th 2012 
Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Synopsis(from Goodreads):
Richelle Mead, Lisa McMann, Michael Grant, Meg Cabot, Laini Taylor, and nine more of the hottest YA authors to hit the shelves explore the concepts of prophecy and prediction in this story collection edited by NYT bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Carrie Ryan.

Have you ever been tempted to look into the future? To challenge predictions? To question fate? It's human nature to wonder about life's twists and turns. But is the future already written—or do you have the power to alter it?

From fantastical prophecies to predictions of how the future will transpire, Foretold is a collection of stories about our universal fascination with life's unknowns and of what is yet to come as interpreted by 14 of young adult fiction's brightest stars.

This collection includes works from:
Malinda Lo (Ash)
Lisa McMann (Wake)
Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures)
Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures)
Laini Taylor (The Daughter of Smoke and Bone)
Michael Grant (Gone)
Saundra Mitchell (The Vespertine)
Richelle Mead (the Vampire Academy)
Matt de la Pena (I Will Save You)
Meg Cabot (The Princess Diaries)
Heather Brewer (The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod)
Diana Peterfreund (Rampant)
Simone Elkeles (Perfect Chemistry)
Carrie Ryan (The Forest of Hands and Teeth)

If any of the authors above have caught your attention withe either one of their books than you probably should read this one. If you are a fan of at least one of those books than you definitely should read it! I am dying to get my hands on Richelle Mead's work because it's a short story that's burned the fire of my curiosity since it was confirmed that it existed... I can't wait to read that short story, therefore I would love to get my hands on this book as soon as it comes out.

Leave me a comment with your WOW and I promise to visit and comment!
Until the next time,

    Poison Princess has a really gorgeous cover and sounds unbelievable good. I just love dystopian novels. And the short story collection sounds great, too. There are a lot of good authors listed.
