"Waiting On" Wednesday - Take Me On

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

This week I'm waiting on...  

Take Me On by Katie McGarry

* Book will be released May 27, 2014

Check out the description from Barnes & Noble:

"Acclaimed author Katie McGarry returns with the knockout new story of two high school seniors who are about to learn what winning really means 
Champion kickboxer Haley swore she'd never set foot in the ring again after one tragic night. But then the guy she can't stop thinking about accepts a mixed martial arts fight in her honor. Suddenly, Haley has to train West Young. All attitude, West is everything Haley promised herself she'd stay away from. Yet he won't last five seconds in the ring without her help. 
West is keeping a big secret from Haley. About who he really is. But helping her—fighting for her—is a shot at redemption. Especially since it's his fault his family is falling apart. He can't change the past, but maybe he can change Haley's future."

This series is addictive kind of like bad soap operas. I love all the drama and angst. These characters are never boring and you never know what’s going to happen next.

Super Series

What series or authors are on your auto buy list?

I have adored every book/series that I've read by this author. She is just superb at world building and making you care about every character.

This book showed me that Rowell is pretty much the master at having a dual perspective, parts of the book are just like perfect poetry.

This series is chock full of awesomeness and it’s the series that makes me actually laugh out loud the most in public while reading. Funny, cool, and once again I find myself caring about every single character.

This series/author writes such awesome angst and it’s kind of like a bad soap opera that you can’t look/don’t want to look away from. This is one addictive series that I can’t wait to read.

 Greek mythology and some compelling characters = a story I can’t wait to read.

This series mixes cool supernatural elements with a family full of characters that you can’t wait to read more about.

NetGalley Find of the Week

This book looks insane but I’m really looking forward to reading it. Plus the squirrel on the cover just really makes you want to know what the heck is going on.

Happy National Library Week

I work in an academic library so I get to see all different types of students and the general public sometimes. That means I get to help a whole bunch of people with a plethora of different questions/problems. It’s always interesting because you really do never know what people will ask. The job is rewarding and fun I don’t think I would ever want to work anywhere besides a library.

Happy National Library Week to all and here’s hoping you’ll visit your library and enjoy. :)

Do your ever find yourself forgetting to go back to a series after reading the first or maybe second book?
