Waiting on Wednesday #7

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme first initiated by Jill from Breaking the Spine. However, we've added our own twist to it! Not only will we feature books that will be published in the following months, but we will also feature books that are not available yet locally, and are still unavailable to us.

Title: Through the Zombie Glass
Author: Gena Showalter
Publication Date: September 24 2013
Publishing House: Harlequin Teen
ISBN: 9780373210770


Inspired by the childhood classic Alice in Wonderland, this harrowing and romantic story features teen zombie slayer Alice bell who has lost so much - family, friends, her home. After a strange new zombie attack, Alice fears she may be losing her mind as well. A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do wicked things. The whispers of the dead assault her ears and mirrors seem to come frighteningly to life. She's never needed her team of zombie slayers more - including her boyfriend, Cole - than she does now. But as Cole strangely withdraws and the zombies gain new strength, Ali knows one false step may doom them all.

Nicole: Having read the first book and finding it entertaining, of course I'd be on the lookout for the second. The summary does sound like there's gonna be more zombie-butt-kicking action but the whole prospect of Cole and Ali drifting apart and all makes me all worried inside. Hopefully nothing really bad happens to them because I would hate for the two to separate and all that. 

Title: The Distance Between Us
Author: Kasie West
Publication Date: July 2, 2013
Publishing House: Harper Teen
ISBN: 9780062235657


Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she's pretty sure they're only good for thing - spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother's shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he's oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he's one of the first people who actually gets her, she's smart enough to know his interest won't last. Because if there's one thing she's learned from her mother's warnings, it's that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she's beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can't find out - she wouldn't approve. She'd much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn't been raised by money. But when Xander's attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn't a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she'd ever realized. And that Xander's not the only one she should've been worried about.

Michelle: It's not exactly a secret that I like to check out the Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr. We're talking about teens who take pictures of receipts that amount to thousands of dollars, and actually have a hard time deciding whether to take the Porsche or the Ferrari to school. It's a bit disturbing, sure, but I can't exactly deny that the behavior is fascinating. Toss in the fact that Caymen sounds like she knows what I'm talking about, and you've pretty much got me sold.

What books are you guys waiting for this week?
