Waiting on Wednesday #8

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

Wake by Amanda Hocking
Release Date: August 7th, 2012

Lose yourself in the magic of Watersong, an unforgettable new series about two sisters who nearly lose their lives - and their loves - when they fall under the spell of three beautiful but deadly sirens. 

First in a four-book paranormal romance YA series from bestselling author, Amanda Hocking.

So, let’s talk about my love for Amanda Hocking real quick. I’ve read her books about Zombies, Trolls and even dabbled in her works on Vampires. She is a fantastic author and lately I have found myself missing her writing style and the worlds she creates. I can hardly wait until Wake comes out to read about her take on sea sirens!

So what are you “Waiting On”?

Also, be sure to check out the GIVEAWAY I am hosting! I am giving away a copy of City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare.


  1. I love Amanda Hocking and I really enjoyed reading the Tryelle story's . I cant wait for Wake and And the cover is gorgeous!GREAT pick :D


    My WOW

  2. Thank you for stopping by! Great pick! This one sounds different and actually really awesome! Can't wait for it to hit the stores :)

  3. I haven't read any of Amanda Hocking's books but I've heard such good things! I love stories about the seas so I will definitely try this one out. Thanks for sharing. :)

  4. I just wanted to say "nice pick" and all, but then saw that you are, atm, reading the first Soul Screamers Volume! What do you think about it? :)

  5. I love how you chose this book for your WOW this week because I was thinking about choosing this book at first too! x) I'm just so excited to read it! I haven't read Amanda Hocking's zombie series yet -- I didn't even know that she wrote one! -- but I read and loved the first two books in her Trylle Trilogy and loved every second of it. I'm Team Loki all the way! ;)

    Absolutely amazing pick, Darlene! :) Hopefully AH can pull of sirens just as well as trolls and zombies -- somehow, I don't doubt it one bit! <3

  6. Haven't read her before but this looks really good. Thanks for sharing :)

    Loving that cover, too.

  7. Sounds like an interesting story. I haven't delved into mermaid books yet.

  8. This blog reading has really become a problem for me... I find myself thinking far too hard about what to read FIRST! Too many choices is a prison, haha.
    Great event, will continue to read these posts.

  9. I have yet to have read anything by Amanda Hocking, but I'm thinking I should after hearing your praise! I think her story about her road to publication is so cool.

  10. Can you believe that I've never heard about the book until I see your WOW?? I love siren and I know that need to have this book soon NOW! The cover is gorgeous, but well... aren't all the underwater covers awesome? ;)

    Love your pick, Darlene! <3

  11. Oooooo SIRENS you say!? Will be checking this out.
