Waiting on Wednesday: Winterling and Everneath

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: Winterling
Author: Sarah Prineas
Publisher: HarperCollins
Date of Release: January 3, 2012 

Goodreads Description: With her boundless curiosity and wild spirit, Fer has always felt that she doesn’t belong. Not when the forest is calling to her, when the rush of wind through branches feels more real than school or the quiet farms near her house. Then she saves an injured creature - he looks like a boy, but he’s really something else. He knows who Fer truly is, and invites her through the Way, a passage to a strange, dangerous land. Fer feels an instant attachment to this realm, where magic is real and oaths forge bonds stronger than iron. But a powerful huntress named the Mor rules here, and Fer can sense that the land is perilously out of balance. Fer must unlock the secrets about the parents she never knew and claim her true place before the worlds on both sides of the Way descend into endless winter. Sarah Prineas captivates in this fantasy-adventure about a girl who must find within herself the power to set right a terrible evil.

Why am I waiting? I don't normally read MG, but this one has magic and is a fantasy. Plus, I really like the cover.

Title: Everneath
Author: Brodi Ashton
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Date of Release: January 24, 2011 

Goodreads Description: Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned - to her old life, her family, her friends - before being banished back to the underworld ... this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back - this time as his queen. As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's ... 

Why am I waiting? It seems like there might be a love triangle situation that'll develop in this one, and while I'm not usually a fan of those, the premise and the world of Everneath sound pretty interesting. Judging from the one review I've read, it also looks like there's a nice focus on character development.

  20. Everneath is getting great buzz. The author's blog is really funny, so I'm hoping some of her humor carries over into Everneath.

  21. Love middle grade books and Winterling sounds so fun! Adding it to the list. :)

  22. I was reading Everneath an hour ago but had to stop after chapter 6. I dunno why but IMO it has the same feel as Falling Under. I also looked at the last few chapters, so now I don't want to read the rest. :/
