Waiting On Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin and Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

Summary and picture from Goodreads.
 Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.

She's wrong.

Summary and picture from Goodreads.
The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure-bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. 

Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1: 

Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.
 
Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

Quick thoughts: I can't wait for Mara Dyer to come out (September 27th) because a) it sounds and looks and screams awesome sauce and b) it's near my birthday! Yea-yuuhhh! Half-Blood is the book I'm slightly anticipating more than Mara Dyer. I saw the word forbidden and I was hooked! 

What were your guys' WoWs this week? Feel free to let me know in the comment box! ^_^
