Waiting on Wednesday #1: Onyx and Clockwork Princess

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

Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Release Date: August 14th, 2012
(Find the first two chapters here on Jennifer's blog)

From Goodreads:  Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarre connection. I’ve sworn him off even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But against all common sense, I’m falling for him. Hard.
Our relationship issues aren’t out biggest problem…
The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And when a new boy shows up a school with a secret of his own, things get complicated fast. I need to choose between my own instincts and Daemon’s.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. Daemon’s never going to stop searching until gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies.

I read the first book in the series, Obsidian, just the other day and devoured it. So great! Loved the characters, the fact that it was totally hilarious - EVERYTHING! So, obviously, I'm super excited for the next installment, Onyx, and the fact that everyone who has read it early has said it's as amazing as the first one, if not more. I can't wait to read more about my fellow book blogger, Katy. And Daemon, of course. 

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare.
Release Date:  March 19th 2013

From Goodreads:
Clockwork Princess, Tessa and her companions travel all over the world as they race to stop the clockwork army before it’s too late. As Jem’s health worsens alarmingly and his friends search desperately for a cure, can Tessa choose between the two boys she loves—even if it means never seeing the other one again?

Sadly, this one's super far away, but I'm still extremely excited about it (and maybe even dreading it a little. please don't hurt my babies Cassandra Clare). I have no doubt that it will tear my heart into little tiny pieces. IIf it's anywhere near as emotional as Clockwork Prince was, I'm sure I'll be sobbing all throughout the book.  I'm way too emotionally invested in this series, as you can see. I'm really excited to see what this book has in store for Tessa, Will, Jem and the rest of the gang. So many questions need to be answered! CAN'T WAIT.


  1. I haven't read any of the books in the Obsidian series, so I'm not really looking forward to Onyx but your other pick got my attention. I still refuse to finish the last few chapters of Clockwork prince because then I'd have to admit to myself that it's over for a while and I'm not sure I can stay sane for so long. I'm going to finish it when I have book three safely waiting on my pile so I can start it right away. I can't wait for March 19th to come. It will be a late Birthday present if I get it right when it comes out!
    Great pick.
    Check out my WOW.

    1. Ahaha sounds good! Wish I could've been able to do that, but I seem to devour Cassie Clare's books in one sitting. Now I have to wait over a year, so that sucks majorly. :(

      & Will do!

  2. I had no idea the Cover of Clockwork Princess was released, so thank you for sharing!!!!!!!!! And I'm as much invested in the series as you seem to be! I'm in love with both boys too, because they're such awesome people, and I just can't go on and choose one over the other. So how Tessa's gonna do that is beyond me...

    Here's my WOW post.

    Oh, and I'm a new follower via GFC. Stop by and return the favor?

    1. No problem! It's so pretty, isn't it? I adore it. I'm Team Will, all the way. ;D Although I do love Jem to bits.. Will be interesting to see how it all turns out.

      & Definitely!
