Waiting on Wednesday: Waiting For You & Swoon

I know that usually I just pick one book for my WOW post, but these two books both look awesome AND both are coming out this week!

Today's first book is Waiting for You, by Susane Colasanti! It will be released tommorow on May 13. Here is the summary from Amazon: At the beginning of her sophomore year, Marisa is ready for a fresh start and, more importantly, a boyfriend. So when the handsome and popular Derek asks her out, Marisa thinks her long wait for happiness is over. But several bumps in the road—including her parents’ unexpected separation, a fight with her best friend, and a shocking disappointment in her relationship with Derek—test Marisa’s ability to maintain her new outlook. Only the anonymous DJ, whose underground podcasts have the school’s ear, seems to understand what Marisa is going through. But she has no idea who he is—or does she? In this third romantic novel from Susane Colasanti, Marisa learns how to “be in the Now” and realizes that the love she’s been waiting for has been right in front of her all along.

This looks like a fun, cute read. Perfect to start out the summer! Mark your calendars, it will be released on May 14, 2009.

The second book is Swoon, by Nina Malkin! It's release date is May 16, which is on Saturday. Here is the summary from Amazon: Sin is coming...prepare to swoon. Torn from her native New York City and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon, Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly dies in a fall from an old tree and her spirit intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge. And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of Sin. She's intensely drawn to him -- but not at all crazy about the havoc he's wreaking. Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy an even more potent -- and irresistible -- adversary before the whole town succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him.What do you do when the boy of your dreams is too bad to be true?

This plot sounds so creative, plus it's romance, fantasy, and suspense all mashed up together! I'm definitely getting my hands on a copy of this soon. Released on May 16, 2009.

Here is the SWOON book trailer:


  1. Both of those sound really good. I like the cover of swoon.

  2. I have read Waiting For You and it was really good. Swoon is one that I have been wanting to read for a while now. Great choices! I had to pick two books this week too because I just couldn't decide either.

  3. I know, it's too hard to pick just one! :)
