Waiting on Wednesday (47): The Fine Art of Truth or Dare, Forever Knight and Fever

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you can post about upcoming books you're looking forward to.

This is a wonderful chance for blogger to show off what's coming out soon that they are excited about! Every week my wishlist balloons thanks to this awesome meme.

Pretty in Pink meets Anna and the French Kiss in this charming romantic comedy.
Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that’s just fine by her. She’s got her friends— the fabulous Frankie and their sweet cohort Sadie. She’s got her art— and her idol, the unappreciated 19th-century painter Edward Willing. Still, it’s hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is your French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before. But can the invisible girl actually end up with a happily ever after with the golden boy, when no one even knows they’re dating? And is Ella going to dare to be that girl?
Why I need this: How flipping cute does this novel sound? I love that adorable cover and the entire idea behind this novel just sounds like it's full of feel good moments. This is definitely on my radar. Plus, it's out right after Valentine's Day!

The Fine Art of Truth or Dare comes out February 16, 2012 by Speak.

Forever Knight by Sherry Soule

Some loves are meant to be…others are cursed. 
Elizabeth Blackburn doesn’t believe in fate or the supernatural until she moves into Cliffside Manor and begins having nightmares about a woman who was murdered in the house. 
Determined to unlock secrets that have remained hidden for centuries, Elizabeth is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away, not to mention, her uncontrollable attraction to the former owner, Dorian Knight. 
As the history of the Knight family curse begins to unravel, tensions heighten and old secrets turn deadly. Even though Dorian wants nothing to do with Elizabeth and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go...even if it kills her.
Why I need this: I've been really into setting right now and an old house full of secrets and curses is right where I want to be. This one looks awesome!

Forever Knight is out October 2011 from Moonlight Publishing. 

Fever by Lauren DeStefano 

Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion. But danger is never far behind. 
Running away brings Rhine and Gabriel right into a trap, in the form of a twisted carnival whose ringmistress keeps watch over a menagerie of girls. Just as Rhine uncovers what plans await her, her fortune turns again. With Gabriel at her side, Rhine travels through an environment as grim as the one she left a year ago―surroundings that mirror her own feelings of fear and hopelessness. 
The Two are determined to get to Manhattan, to relative safety with Rhine's twin brother, Rowan. But the road there is long and perilous―and in a world where young woman only live to age twenty and young men die at twenty-five, time is precious. Worse still, they can't seem to elude Rhine's father-in-law, Vaughn, who is determined to bring Rhine back to the mansion… by any means necessary. 
In this sequel to Lauren DeStefano's harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price―now that she has more to lose than ever.
Why I need this: Can we say, yes please? I loved the first novel and can't wait to see what happens to Rhine in this next installment. The carnival sounds terrifying and Vaughn is even scarier. 

Fever is out February 21, 2012 by Simon & Schuster.

What are you waiting on this week?

  7. Fever was my WoW pick as well! I'm so EXCITED to read it and find out what will happen to Rhine next. I hope she gets the chance to find her brother again but it sounds like Vaughn is really out to get her back...

  8. I did like this book. It is definitely worth reading. Perhaps it's just my addiction to YA romance. I liked the concept of the plot, and in general enjoyed it. The ending made me smile, and as a whole it was just cute. Yeah, cute is a good word for this book.
