Waiting on Wednesday #36: A Mad Zombie Party & Before We Were Strangers

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

Today my new co-blogger, Kim will be joining me for this weeks WOW post. :)


This week, I'm waiting on...


A Mad Zombie Party (White Rabbit Chronicles #4) by Gena Showalter 
Hardcover, 448 pages
Expected publication: September 29th 2015 by Harlequin Teen
Genre: YA - PNR, Horror, Zombies



The battle rages on. 

Ali Bell and Cole Holland's crew of zombie slayers thought they'd won the war against Anima Industries, the evil company responsible for capturing and experimenting on zombies in an effort to discover the secret to immortality. In the last epic clash, the slayers lost many of their crew and closest friends. But Frosty, the ice man himself, has not recovered from one casualty in particular—the love of his life, Kat Parker. 

On the path to self-annihilation, Frosty receives a message from beyond—Kat's spirit returns, insisting he partner with rogue slayer Camilla Marks. Frosty will do anything for Kat. Except that. Camilla is the one who betrayed them all, leading to Kat's death. 

But when Anima rises from the grave to become a force the slayers may not have the strength to overcome, Frosty, Camilla and all the slayers will have to work together to survive. And one broken slayer will learn that sometimes, the line between hate and attraction is blurred…and the road to redemption isn't through revenge, but in letting go of the past and grabbing hold of the future.   

Okay. Raise you hand if you thought there would be a fourth book in this series? Nobody? Yeah, me too! The third book was wrapped up so perfectly ending the series. Spoiler in white: with the exception of Frosty grieving for Kat. When I saw there was going to be another book I was kind of in shock. I mean I love this series so much, but I'm kind of worry about where this book is going and why it was needed. I'm hoping it will be great as were all the others. Oh, and as far as the cover goes... I kind of don't like it. She looks bored, and I wish she ended up wearing the top hat like in the photo shoot but oh well.




Kim is waiting on....

Before We Were Strangers 
Renee Carlino 
Paperback, 320 pages
Expected publication: August 18th 2015 by Atria Books
Genre: NA - Contemporary Romance

From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sweet Thing and Nowhere But Here comes a love story about a Craigslist “missed connection” post that gives two people a second chance at love fifteen years after they were separated in New York City.

To the Green-eyed Lovebird:

We met fifteen years ago, almost to the day, when I moved my stuff into the NYU dorm room next to yours at Senior House.

You called us fast friends. I like to think it was more.

We lived on nothing but the excitement of finding ourselves through music (you were obsessed with Jeff Buckley), photography (I couldn’t stop taking pictures of you), hanging out in Washington Square Park, and all the weird things we did to make money. I learned more about myself that year than any other.

Yet, somehow, it all fell apart. We lost touch the summer after graduation when I went to South America to work for National Geographic. When I came back, you were gone. A part of me still wonders if I pushed you too hard after the wedding…

I didn’t see you again until a month ago. It was a Wednesday. You were rocking back on your heels, balancing on that thick yellow line that runs along the subway platform, waiting for the F train. I didn’t know it was you until it was too late, and then you were gone. Again. You said my name; I saw it on your lips. I tried to will the train to stop, just so I could say hello.

After seeing you, all of the youthful feelings and memories came flooding back to me, and now I’ve spent the better part of a month wondering what your life is like. I might be totally out of my mind, but would you like to get a drink with me and catch up on the last decade and a half?

Kim's Says: There's just something about the cover and the synopsis of this book that pulls me in. I love that the synopsis is in letter form, and I just can't wait to find out the story behind it!

  3. Not sure about the latter but YES I AM SO EXCITED FOR A FOURTH BOOK IN THE WHITE RABBIT SERIES! To by honest though... I haven't read the third book. YET. I will though, perhaps binge-read books three and four! I loved books one and two. I hope you enjoy these books when you read them!

    Have a fabulous week :)

    Check out my WoW post!
