Waiting On Wednesday ~ 9/23/15

This is our version of Waiting on Wednesday but with more cuddles, books we can't wait to cuddle for various reasons.

What are we waiting on this week?  THIS!

Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers.

One day, he’s tracked down by a man he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. The man tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god.

The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarok, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years.

When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision.

Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die . . .

Why am I waiting? I've always been a Rick Riordan fan. Add some mythology and I'm in! Love that cover too.

SurrenderI wake up in a cold, dark room, shackled to a bed.

Across the room he sits, watching me, his determined expression masking the pain in his eyes.

He tells me I need to be punished for running away from him.

He tells me this is for my own good, that in order to survive I need to surrender myself to him.

I'm confused, because he acts like he knows me. But we've never met.

Then it all begins to make sense.

He calls me Anna.

My stomach lurches.

I feel sick.

Because I’m not who he thinks I am.

Releases November 2nd!

Why am I waiting? Well. I actually JUST found this book on Goodreads, and after reading that synopsis... color me intrigued. I think this one will be a fun reading experience, and I am honestly so curious about how this story will go. It's on my mind now! I need it in my hands!

That's what we're waiting on this week! What do you think? What are you waiting on? Leave us a comment and link us up!

  3. I cannot wait for the new Riordan book! Awesome picks!

  4. I can't decide on the new Riordan book. I didn't like the first Kane Chronicle book and never read on. I loved Percy Jackson, but had trouble getting in the Heroes of Olympus. I just love the idea of this new mythology though. Great picks!
    Check out my WOW

  5. Both of these are new to me. Hope you enjoy ladies!

  6. Both of these sound good. Surrender has definitely caught my attention.

  7. Magnus Chase sounds so good!! I love all origins of mythology and you really don't see a lot of book based on the Norse aspect. I have only read his series that centers around Greek mythology and it was very well done, in my opinion.
