Waiting on Wednesday (times two!)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

by Rachel Hawkins
Release: March 13th, 2012
Summary:  
Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident. 

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?
So cannot wait, especially after the cliffhanger at the end of Demonglass! I'm glad the cover theme is still the same too, it'll look great next to the previous titles...

Born Wicked
by Jessica Spotswood
Release: February 17th, 2012
Summary:
Cate Cahill and her sisters are considered eccentric bluestockings—a little odd, a little unfashionable, and far too educated for their own good. The truth is more complicated; they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it could mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. Before their mother died, she entrusted Cate with keeping them safe and keeping everyone, including their father, in the dark about their powers. When her father employs a governess and Cate begins to receive notes from her missing, presumed-mad godmother, her task becomes much more difficult. As Cate searches for answers in banned books and rebellious new friends, she must juggle unwanted proposals, tea parties, and an illicit attraction to the new gardener. Cate will do anything to protect her sisters, but at what cost to herself?
Can you tell I'm a sucker for magic and witch stories? This one is most definitely high on my wishlist :)

What are you waiting on?

  4. Great picks! Born Wicked sounds good. I still haven't read Demonglass, I think I'll wait this one to be out & then I'll re-read Hex Hall & read the other 2 books. As for the cover, I like the theme of the covers, loved the other 2 covers, but I don't like this one. I don't know why :(
