“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


Ohmygod-ohmygod-ohmygod!!! When I learned last week that Susan Beth Pfeffer was releasing a new book in her Last Survivors series I was so, so, SO excited! And All Our Yesterdays has a greatly intriguing premise!

The Shade of the Moon by Susan Beth Pfeffer (August 13, 2013)


It’s been more than two years since Jon Evans and his family left Pennsylvania, hoping to find a safe place to live, yet Jon remains haunted by the deaths of those he loved. His prowess on a soccer field has guaranteed him a home in a well-protected enclave. But Jon is painfully aware that a missed goal, a careless word, even falling in love, can put his life and the lives of his mother, his sister Miranda, and her husband, Alex, in jeopardy. Can Jon risk doing what is right in a world gone so terribly wrong?

all our yesterdays

All our Yesterdays  by  Cristin Terrill (September 3, 2013)

“You have to kill him.” Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.

  3. I’ve been wanting to read Life as we knew it since forever (probably since it came out). It’s been on my “want-to-read” list since before I started blogging. Maybe I’ll have to pick it up. And we’re twins this week with All Our Yesterdays. Awesome picks!!!

    Thanks for visiting my WoW.
