Waiting on Wednesday

Published on March 5, 2013

Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection...

Before Aspen broke America's heart...

There was another girl in Prince Maxon's life...

Don't miss this thrilling 128-page original novella set in the world of the New York Times bestselling novel The Selection. Also features a teaser to The Elite, Kiera Cass's hotly anticipated sequel to The Selection.

She is desperate to remember.
He is aching to forget.
Together, they are not broken.
But together, one may not survive.

​Jade wakes up with no memory of her past and blood on her hands.

Plagued by wicked thoughts, she searches for answers. Instead, she finds a boy who doesn't offer her answers, but hope. But sometimes, when nightmares turn into reality and death follows you everywhere, hope is not enough.

LUST. LOVE. LOSS. Sometimes, all that is left are Ashes and Ice.

A girl.
A coma.
A life she can't remember.

When Emma Walker wakes up in the hospital with no knowledge of how she got there, she learns that she's been in a coma for six months. Strangers show up and claim to be her parents, but she can't remember them. She can't remember anyone. Not her friends, not even her boyfriend. Even though she can't remember, everyone wants her to just pick up where she left off, but what she learns about the 'old her' makes her start to wish she'd never woken up. Her boyfriend breaks up with the new girl he's dating to be with her, her parents want her to start planning for college, her friends want their leader back, and her physical therapist with the hazel eyes keeps his distance to save his position at the hospital.

Will she ever feel like she recognizes the girl in the mirror?

I really need to read the Selection. I've been meaning to but just haven't gotten around to it! haven't heard of Wide Awake but I like the blurb. It kind of reminds me of the movie The Vow but from Rachel McAdams perspective! I'll have to add this one to my list! Thanks for sharing!

That looks like a good list of upcoming books!

Lizzy January 17, 2013 at 4:09 AM  

The Prince and Wide Awake are definitely going on my list. I'm sort of torn. I haven't read The Selection yet, so do I read The Prince first, or do I start with the novel? Hmm. Great picks!

Melissaa!?! January 17, 2013 at 11:14 AM  

Nice List i haven't read The Selection but I've been seeing a lot of good things about it.& Wide Awake looks pretty good. My WOW -> http://booknerdrambling.blogspot.com/2013/01/waiting-on-wednesday23.html

I want to read 'The Prince'! I don't have an e-reader or anything though so I don't see how I'll be able to read it... :(

Alicia♥ January 17, 2013 at 6:59 PM  

THE PRINCE NOVELLA!! I've read and loved The Selection (even though my friends judge me for that... Haha) and I'm very curious to what sort of person Maxon really is and I believe this novella is the best place to start, love your picks! :D

Book a World

Chelsea January 17, 2013 at 9:23 PM

Henrietta @ Leisure Reads January 17, 2013 at 11:31 PM  

The Prince sounds interesting, and it seems like there are great mysteries behind Ashes & Ice and Wide Awake. Thanks for sharing :)

forevernarnia January 17, 2013 at 11:31 PM  

I've got The Prince on my wishlist too. I haven't read The Selection yet, but it's in my shelves waiting. It looks really good. :)

I didn't really care for The Selection but the novella actually sounds pretty interesting! I may have to give the book another chance! Great picks, thanks for stopping by my blog!

Erica January 18, 2013 at 2:23 AM  

I am SO excited for the novella - I quite loved The Selection :)

Janita @ Book, Interrupted January 18, 2013 at 2:49 AM  

The Selection novella looks really awesome! I'm kind of liking these prequel excerpts (as long as they're free) :P I know some people are iffy about them. Awesome WoW!

Alyssa Susanna January 18, 2013 at 4:15 AM  

I can't wait for The Prince as well!!! Unfortunately, I haven't heard of the other two. Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!

Michelle @ In Libris Veritas January 18, 2013 at 4:26 AM  

All of these sound really amazing. I haven't read The Selection yet but I've been wanting to. I'll have to keep an eye out for the other two as well. Thank you for stopping by the blog!

@HarleyBearBooks January 18, 2013 at 4:57 AM  

I didn't know there was going to be a Selection novella! Very excited to learn more about the prince. Great picks. Thanks for stopping by my wow.

booksandbooksand January 18, 2013 at 7:24 AM  

I hadn't heard of Wide Awake until just now, but I HAVE to read it. I love books like that.

Liza January 18, 2013 at 7:48 AM  

Wide Awake sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

Jennifer Messerschmidt January 18, 2013 at 10:18 AM  

So I'm one of the few that actually never liked Maxon but the novella about him does sound interesting. In The Selection he made it seem like he had zero experience with girls and never kissed one before though so I'm a bit confused. Wide Awake sounds great! I love coma and memory loss stories! Thanks for stopping by!

Kara_Malinczak January 18, 2013 at 12:07 PM  

Hmmmm. I won't read The Selection because of what the author and agent did, but Wide Awake sounds pretty good! Great picks!

Ayanami Faerudo January 18, 2013 at 6:13 PM  

Woah, these girls don't have memories! Wide Awake sounds interesting.

Thanks for stopping by. ^_^

Your blog title's cool! I'm Divergent Ravenclaw. XD

Andrea @The Bookish Babes January 18, 2013 at 10:33 PM  

Those are all great picks. I think Wide Awake looks like a story I would like. Thanks for sharing!

Megan January 19, 2013 at 3:25 AM
