Waiting on Wednesday (14)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine
for sharing upcoming releases we're highly anticipating.

>>NEW ADULT
He Will Be My Ruin
by K.A. Tucker
Release Date: February 2, 2016
Genre: NA, Romance, Thriller
- - -
The USA TODAY bestselling author of the Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water series makes her romance thriller debut with this heart pounding story of a young woman determined to find justice after her best friend's death, a story pulsing with the "intense, hot, emotional" (Colleen Hoover) writing that exhilarates her legions of fans.

Twenty-eight-year-old Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what's left of her best friend's belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a bottle of Xanax and a handle of Maker's Mark, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers secrets in the childhood lock box hidden in Celine's apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man who Celine herself claimed would be her ruin.

On the hunt for answers that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine's private life—and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.

Why? I'm a big fan of K.A. Tucker after having read her Ten Tiny Breaths series and meeting her at a signing! I love any sort of romance + suspense/thriller combo so of course, I had to add this one to my tbr :D

>>YOUNG ADULT
The Girl From Everywhere (The Girl From Everywhere #1)
by Heidi Heilig
Release Date: February 16, 2016
| +Goodreads |
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Historical, Sci-fi, Time-Travel
Publisher: Greenwillow Brooks
- - -
Heidi Heilig's debut teen fantasy sweeps from modern-day New York City to nineteenth-century Hawaii to places of myth and legend. Sixteen-year-old Nix has sailed across the globe and through centuries aboard her time-traveling father's ship. But when he gambles with her very existence, it all may be about to end. The Girl from Everywhere, the first of two books, will dazzle readers of Sabaa Tahir, Rae Carson, and Rachel Hartman.

Nix's life began in Honolulu in 1868. Since then she has traveled to mythic Scandinavia, a land from the tales of One Thousand and One Nights, modern-day New York City, and many more places both real and imagined. As long as he has a map, Nix's father can sail his ship, The Temptation, to any place, any time. But now he's uncovered the one map he's always sough—1868 Honolulu, before Nix's mother died in childbirth. Nix's life—her entire existence—is at stake. No one knows what will happen if her father changes the past. It could erase Nix's future, her dreams, her adventures...her connection with the charming Persian thief, Kash, who's been part of their crew for two years. If Nix helps her father reunite with the love of his life, it will cost her her own.

In The Girl from Everywhere, Heidi Heilig blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility with witty, fast-paced dialogue, breathless adventure, and enchanting romance.
