Waiting on Wednesday #17

This year has gone by way too fast.  I can't believe that I'm already thinking about books to be released in 2014.   This week's waiting on Wednesday is Flame by Amy Kathleen Ryan, since I just finished Spark last week.

Flame by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Release Date: January 7, 2014

In the thrilling conclusion to the Sky Chasers series Waverly, Kieran, and Seth struggle to survive on-board the New Horizon—and take down their enemies before it's too late.

Waverly and the other members of the Empyrean have scattered, and their home ship has been destroyed. Their mission to rescue their parents didn't go as planned, and now they're at an even greater disadvantage: trapped with their enemies on the New Horizon, trying to find a way to survive. Kieran has been pulled under Anne Mather’s wing, but is she really trying to make peace, or just using Kieran to build her own power? Meanwhile, Waverly is taken in by a mysterious old man who wants to help her bring Anne Mather down—but the more Waverly cooperates with him, the more dangerous her position is, and the more at odds with Kieran she becomes.

Seth's situation is even worse. After setting out from the Empyrean on his own, with only a vague strategy to guide him, he is a fugitive aboard the New Horizon. He's doing what he can to challenge the power of Anne Mather, but he's badly hurt, and getting sicker.

Will Seth ever see Waverly again? Will his health hold out long enough to help her topple their enemies? And will Waverly find a way to unite with her friends before they all fall? Nothing is sure and every moment is a risk in this explosive finale of the Sky Chasers series. ~Goodreads

Showcase Sunday #17

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea where you show what books you've purchased, borrowed, checked out from the library, received from giveaway, etc.

I think this week I bought, I guess it's bad when I can't remember what I bought this week.  I have so many books I need to read.  I might need to take a break from buying books until after the new year.

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson for Book Club.

Rachel, what happened to Rachel??? I think we need a serious intervention.  She has neglected to borrow or buy any books for the past, how many weeks?  LOTS!  I've tried so many things, I gave her an incentive; if she reads the Lux Series (which will get her out of her reading funk, guaranteed) I will read The Selection Series,  I gave her my old nook, with enough books to keep her busy for the next two or three years and I still can't get her to read anything.  Help! What else do I do?
