Waiting of Wednesday (5)


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

Lyn's WoW:
The Oracle of Stamboul: A NovelTitle: The Oracle of Stamboul

Author: Michael David Lukas

Publisher: HarperCollins

Publishing Date: February 8, 2011

Since I saw the ARC/Galley review of this novel in one of the blog, I'm putting this book on the top list of my TBR. I like historical fiction and I can't wait to get a chance to read this.

Mithee's WoW:
Title: City of Fallen Angels
Author: Cassandra Clare
Series: The Mortal Instruments #4
Pages: 432 (Hardcover)
(Goodreads)

Release Date: April 5th 2011
Published by: Margaret K. McElderry

Summary:

City of Fallen Angels is the fourth book in the bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.

“City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.”


Everybody loves The Mortal Instruments series! And I think everybody loves Jace and Simon and Clary and Magnus too! I don't about you, but I supercalifragido! I miss them so much I wanna read it right now. :(

How to Knit a Heart Back Home
By Rachael Herron
Publication date: March 1, 2011

Lucy Harrison sells books by day and volunteers with the Cypress Hollow fire department by night. Her life is just the way she likes it—full, even-keeled, and smooth—until bad-boy ex-cop Owen Bancroft comes back to town. Lucy has always been fearless, never scared about diving in to help others. When it comes to risking her heart, however, she realizes she's absolutely terrified.

In a small town like Cypress Hollow, everyone knows your business—and there is nowhere to hide. Then Lucy and Owen are thrown together by the discovery of the lost work of local legend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Now Owen, adrift and struggling to redefine himself as a civilian without a badge, will have to learn how to open himself up to life's new possibilities . . . while Lucy decides just how much of herself she's willing to gamble on love.
