Waiting on Wednesday #13

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

Happy Wednesday! Summer is almost over, especially now that I know some kids are going back to school. It feels weird! I remember when I was younger we didn't start until after Labor Day. Well, I don't know. Anyway, lets get on with the waiting!

Author: Ryan Graudin
Release Date: November 4, 2014

There are three rules in the Walled City: Run fast. Trust no one. Always carry your knife. Right now, my life depends completely on the first. Run, run, run.

Jin, Mei Yee, and Dai all live in the Walled City, a lawless labyrinth run by crime lords and overrun by street gangs. Teens there run drugs or work in brothels—or, like Jin, hide under the radar. But when Dai offers Jin a chance to find her lost sister, Mei Yee, she begins a breathtaking race against the clock to escape the Walled City itself.
I read my first action-like book a few weeks ago and I've been looking for something since that may live up to my curiosity of the genre. This sounds like The Purge Gone Wild (and without the laws every other day of the week.)

Author: Susan Ee
Release Date: May 14, 2015

Penryn is trying to survive. Because after the angels came to destroy the modern world there are no rules. Streets are ruled by gangs and angels are hunting for humans. When her sister is kidnapped Penryn will do everything she can to find her even if it means working with the enemy. Everything could happen in this new dangerous world.
(This is the summary of the series)

Earlier this year I read both the first and second in days. I loved how creepy they were and was devastated when they ended. There isn't much out about this one that it is still untitled! But I know that I will be right there when it comes out. I can’t wait so I can see how Penryn’s story continues.

What has you waiting on edge?!


  1. Exciting books! Hope you love them both...and thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. The Walled City looks fantastic and I have heard a lot of good things about Pernryn and the End of Days!

    My WoW

  3. These all sound exciting. I have only read the first book in the Angelfall series and I loved it. The Walled City i have a feeling will be an excellent book. Nice picks.


  4. There's already an Angelfall 3? I'm so behind! I started reading (well, listening actually) to Angelfall and I liked it but put it aside for some reason. I need to catch up, especially since you binge-read the first two books!

  5. Great picks!! I've heard of both and they seems so good!

    Woah! I will definitely be adding BOTH of those to my TBR! Thanks!

  7. I got an ARC of The Walled City at BEA and can't wait to read it! I still need to read Angelfall 2 though. Great choices!

  8. This sounds like an interesting dystopian. Lots of action. Nice pick--I'm going to check it out.

    Check out my WOW!

  9. I think I may have vaguely heard of the first one in the last couple weeks, but I'm don't know much about either of these books. But I do love action, so I will have to look into The Walled City more! Thanks for sharing!

    My WoW.

  10. Oh YES to both of these! I cannot wait for The Walled City, I've heard so many great things already. And I didn't know that the 3rd Angelfall had a release date!! Yay! It seems like so, so long in between the Angelfall books. Hope you enjoy your picks, they're both great ones!

  11. Haven't heard of the The Walled City before, but damn it sounds really interesting! I still need to read Angelfall. It's on my TBR list, I swear, haha. Hope it's as fabulous as the first two! Thanks for sharing!

  12. YESSSS!!!! I am SOOO excited for both of these!! I have an ARC of the WALLED CITY, which I'm crazy excited for. But I still have to read book 2 in the ANGELFALL series!!

    Great picks! I hope you enjoy it when you read it.

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW @ Addicted Readers! :)

    The Walled City sounds fascinating. I heard of this book a couple weeks ago. It sounds a little like The Maze Runner, which I haven't read, with the running and labyrinth run aspects.

    I haven't heard of the Penryn & The End of Days series, but it sounds interesting. I like the idea (bookies) of there being angles and no rules. I'm curious as to why angels are hunting for humans as well.

    Two interesting picks for sure. :)

  14. Nice picks! I know someone lees who's really excited about The Walled City and you've remained me I still need to read Angelfall.
    Thanks for sharing!

  15. Oooo The Walled City sounds pretty good but I haven't read the Angelfall series yet so I can't be excited about that one. Hope you enjoy these books.
    Thanks for stopping by :)

  16. I have the first book, Angelfall (?), and I haven't read it yet. I have heard nothing but good things about this series... The Walled City sounds intense! I am really looking forward to hearing more about it!
    Great picks :)

  17. I've been meaning to read Angelfall for years and years! I do wonder if I should wait till this is out... If it's the last one, at least. Then I could binge. Bingeing is fun. :) Great picks!!
