Waiting on Wednesday #13: All Our Yesterdays and All Our Pretty Songs
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!
This week in WoW I’m doing some serious cover lusting. Recently, I discovered to amazing books just by ogling their pretty black and yellow covers. And after they caught my eye, they drew me in even further with their awesome blurbs and by the fact that their titles are so similar. How cool is that??? I am in fantasy and science fiction heaven right now. Yeah, epic nerdgasm. Check out my pretty fabulous picks this week!

Marina has everything. She’s got money, popularity, and a bright future. Plus, she’s best friends with the boy next door, who happens to be a gorgeous prodigy from one of America’s most famous families.
Em has nothing. Imprisoned in a small white cell in the heart of a secret military base, all she has is the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.
But Marina and Em have one big thing in common: they’re the same person.
Now Em must travel back four years in time in order to avert the terrible future from which she’s fled, and there’s only one way to do it. She must kill the person who invented the time machine in the first place: someone from her past. A person she loved.
But Marina won’t let them go without a fight.
Time travel, um hello. HECK yes! This book sounds kick a$$ and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. *drools*

The first book in an exciting YA trilogy, this is the story of two best friends on the verge of a terrifying divide when they begin to encounter a cast of strange and mythical characters.
Set against the lush, magical backdrop of the Pacific Northwest, two inseparable best friends who have grown up like sisters—the charismatic, mercurial, and beautiful Aurora and the devoted, soulful, watchful narrator—find their bond challenged for the first time ever when a mysterious and gifted musician named Jack comes between them. Suddenly, each girl must decide what matters most: friendship, or love. What both girls don’t know is that the stakes are even higher than either of them could have imagined. They’re not the only ones who have noticed Jack’s gift; his music has awakened an ancient evil—and a world both above and below which may not be mythical at all. The real and the mystical; the romantic and the heartbreaking all begin to swirl together, carrying the two on journey that is both enthralling and terrifying.
And it’s up to the narrator to protect the people she loves—if she can.[/note]
I love trilogies and this one sounds so amazing. I’m dying to know what they mythical creatures are. Oh and ancient evils, those always (well usually) make for epic battles! This novel is a definite, MUST-have!!
So what about you? What games or books are you waiting on?
