We're really excited to start Waiting on Wednesday and share what we're looking forward to reading with all of you!

Rhee's Pick:
Dark Companion
Dark Companion by Maria Acosta
Publication Date: July 3rd, 2012

When foster teen Jane Williams is invited to attend elite Birch Grove Academy for Girls and escape her violent urban neighborhood, she thinks the offer is too good to be true. She's even offered her own living quarters, the groundskeeper's cottage in the center of the birch grove.

Something's not quite right about the school -- or is it Jane? She thinks she sees things in the birch grove at night. She's also beginning to suspect that the elegant headmistress and her sons are hiding secrets. Lucky is the gorgeous, golden son who is especially attentive to Jane, and Jack is the sardonic puzzling brother.

The school with its talented teachers and bright students is a dream for a science and math geek like Jane. She also loves her new friends, including hilarious poetry-spouting rich girl, Mary Violet. But the longer Jane stays at Birch Grove, the more questions she has about the disappearance of another scholarship girl and a missing faculty member.

Jane discovers one secret about Birch Grove, which only leads to more mysteries. What is she willing to sacrifice in order to stay at this school...and be bound to Birch Grove forever?

How awesome does this book sound? I just can't wait to get my hands on it! Is it July yet?

Kaitlyn's Pick:
Shadow's Claim (Realm of Blood and Mist, #1)Shadow's Claim by Kresley Cole
Publication Date: August 21st, 2012

#1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole introduces The Dacians: Realm of Blood and Mist, a brand new paranormal romance collection following the royal bloodline of Dacia, a mysterious vampire kingdom within The Lore (Cole’s world of mythological creatures in her award-winning Immortals After Dark series)

Series opener Shadow’s Claim features Prince Trehan Daciano, a ruthless master assassin who will use every lethal skill he possesses to defend his imperiled kingdom—as well as his newfound princess. When an ancient secret threatens to destroy them all, can Dacia’s notorious prince of shadows keep his Bride alive against all odds?

  I think this new book by an author I haven't expierenced before, Kresley Cole, sounds interesting. I like that the plot seems (from what I can deduce from the synopsis) that the MC already has his love interest, and he's a wildly protective king. Definitely gonna pick this one up and give it a shot when it comes out in August!

So what are you waiting for this Wednesday? Leave us a link so we can check it out too!

Both of these picks are excellent! But I did chuckle a bit when I saw the title treatment for "Dark Companion". The font doesn't look very "dark" does it? Adding both to my Goodreads list! ;)
