Waiting on Wednesday #18

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating.

Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3)
by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 4th 2014

Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard.

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can. - Goodreads

Why am I Waiting?
I feel a little guilty about putting this on my waiting list since I haven't read book two in this series yet, but clearly not guilty enough to not blog about it. I have a feeling once I read Scarlet (book two) I will fall completely and utterly in love with this series. At least I can dream, right? Cause right now I need a series that I can fall in love with. On a side note, I started Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout so I am about to find out if Daemon Black is as delicious as Melissa claims. And let's just say she has set the bar really stinkin' high...

But, enough about me. What are you waiting to be released?

Top Ten Books On Our Winter TBR

This week's Top 10 Tuesday, which is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.  Tonight's topic, Top 10 Books on Our Winter TBR.

Well, let me see here.....I need to go get my nook.  So does anyone else do this?  I'm a little OCD when it comes to my nook.  I have a tendency to organize the books on the tabletop based on the order I want to read  them in.  This would be the reason why I need to get my nook. 

Ok.  Got it.  Here are mine:

I'm in process of reading The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson for book club.  It has great reviews, but I'm struggling a little.

Stranger Books by Matt Davenport.  This is the second book in the Abstract series.  I'm looking forward to reading this book from a good friend.

Eleven on Top by Janet Evanovich.  These books make me giggle and I enjoy them.

The Selection by Kiera Cass.  Since Rachel is reading something I've suggested to her, I promised her that I would read one of her recommendations.

Elemental by Alexandra May.  I've picked up so many free books that I've had to work in a free book into the rotation so I have more room on my tabletop for more books.  Yes, all 5 pages are filled top to bottom.

Rachel has finally finished her first book since October!  She is planning on continuing with:

Obsidian, Opal, Onyx, Origin, and Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout.  I'm just a little jealous that she is reading these even though I read and recommended then to her.  It just doesn't seem right that she gets Daemon Black all to herself.

The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom.  I'll let Rachel read this one first, then maybe I will.

What's on your TBR this winter?

Showcase Sunday #18

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 am still alive even though it would be hard to tell by my recent postings. I have been going through a dry spell. I haven't finished a complete book since October. What is going on with me? Prior this year, I bumped up my reading goal to 50 books and for the first time this year I am 2 books behind schedule.

I started reading Shadows by


What did you pick up this week? How close are you to completing your reading goal for 2013?
