Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. This week I am anxiously awaiting:
The Calling (Darkness Rising #2) by Kelley Armstrong
Publication Date: April 10th 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal
On the heels of the wildly popular The Gathering comes the second in the "Darkness Rising" YA trilogy from NYT bestselling author Kelley Armstrong.
Maya Delaney's paw-print birthmark is the mark of what she truly is--a skin-walker. She can run faster, climb higher, and see better than nearly everyone else. Experiencing intense connections with the animals that roam the woods outside her home, Maya knows it's only a matter of time before she's able to Shift and become one of them. And she believes there may be others in her small town with surprising talents.
Now, Maya and her friends have been forced to flee from their homes during a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set. Then they're kidnapped, and after a chilling helicopter crash, they find themselves in the Vancouver Island wilderness with nothing but their extraordinary abilities to help them get back home.

The Intruders (Visitors Trilogy, #1) by Logan Rutherford
Publication Date: April
It started with the mysterious Visitors who appeared over The White House in their spaceship. Days go by with seemingly no contact, until one day, they leave. Moments later, almost everybody on Earth disappears into thin air.
Seventeen-year-old Charlie Freeman and his cousin, Alex, are two of the few left behind. While fighting for survival, they join a girl named Sarah in her quest to Washington D.C. to rescue her little brother. It should be easy, but then these mysterious creatures known as Grimm’s start showing up, and they have one goal: to kill all those who were left behind.
Two this week and I am very excited for both of them. I just can't wait to get my hands on these two. Don't they just sound fun. :)
What are you waiting for this week?
