Waiting on Wednesday (#s9&10)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.  I realise this post is early, but I'm travelling tonight, will be out tomorrow, and won't be home till after midnight. Since I was away last week, I also have another double. :)

Title: Finale (Hush, Hush #4)
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Released: 23rd October 2012

Fates unfurl in the gripping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Hush, Hush saga.

Nora is more certain than ever that she is in love with Patch. Fallen angel or no, he is the one for her. Her heritage and destiny may mean they are fated to be enemies, but there is no turning her back on him. Now Nora and Patch must gather their strength to face one last, perilous trial. Old enemies return, new enemies are made, and a friend's ultimate betrayal threatens the peace Patch and Nora so desperately want. The battle lines are drawn—but which sides are they on? And in the end, are there some obstacles even love can't conquer?

Title: Conjure (The Hoodoo Apprentice #1)
Author: Lea Nolan
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC
Released: 16th October 2012

Be careful what you search for...

Emma Guthrie expects this summer to be like any other in the South Carolina Lowcountry--hot and steamy with plenty of beach time alongside her best friend and secret crush, Cooper Beaumont, and Emma’s ever-present twin brother, Jack. But then a mysterious eighteenth-century message in a bottle surfaces, revealing a hidden pirate bounty. Lured by the adventure, the trio discovers the treasure and unwittingly unleashes an ancient Gullah curse that attacks Jack with the wicked flesh-eating Creep and promises to steal Cooper’s soul on his approaching sixteenth birthday.

When a strange girl appears, bent on revenge; demon dogs become a threat; and Jack turns into a walking skeleton; Emma has no choice but to learn hoodoo magic to undo the hex, all before summer—and her friends--are lost forever.

OK, so Hush Hush.  I have been aware lately of how quite a few people are getting tired of it, of how they don't like the title, etc etc.  But I am so excited for it!  I can't even tell you how much I'm looking forward to seeing where Becca Fitzpatrick takes this story and how she wraps up such an amazing series.  Recently I also saw that Conjure has a cover, and it's only peaked my interest.  I love the whole mysterious atmosphere of it.  Plus, the synopsis is just...*shakes head*.  A mention of the 18th century?  A message in a bottle?  Treasure?  Flesh-eating Creeps, demon dogs and walking skeletons?  I think I just died.  I need to see where this goes.

What about you?  What are you waiting for this week?  Link me up and I'll be sure to check out your WoW posts. :)

  4. Hush Hush is very much a guilty pleasure series for me. It's full of aspects I usually despise... but I still like it. ;) I'm looking forward to Finale too. Conjure sounds amazing! The cover is a little meh for me, but I'm eager to read the story. Great picks, Aa'Ishah! :)

  5. I didn't really enjoy Silence as much as I'd hoped, so I'm still in two minds about picking the last book up, even though I started off absolutely loving this series. I also hadn't heard of Conjure before, but is sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing such an amazing book with us! :)

  6. SO EXCITED FOR FINALE!!! Silence was probably my favourite in the series.... maybe... I dunno, Hush Hush is still ridiculously addictive for me. I loved that things stepped up in Silence and the relationship deepened between Nora and Patch, but I love the sexual tension in HH. Ahh, either way, I cannot wait to see how it all ends!

    And Conjure! I SEE THE WORDS PIRATE BOUNTY. AND DEMON DOGS. AND... hell, I NEED THIS BOOK. I love that they're both 2012 releases - no torturous waiting, yay! <3

  7. I've read Hush Hush and I did enjoy the overall but I'm really not that inclined to pick up the following books. Haha! I'd seen Conjure in a cover reveal and it does sound amazing. Great picks, Ria!

  8. Oh my God. I can't wit for finale by Becca Fitzpatrick I need it! :D great picks!

  9. I can't wait for Finale! I love the Hush Hush series. I've never heard of Conjure, I'll have to check it out. Great picks Aa'Ishah. :)
