WoW Pick of the Week



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.


I almost never read books that involve aliens of any kind but on the rare case that I do, I find that I actually like them. So why do I not read them more? I have no idea! Maybe I am just an idiot. Anywoo, I am so excited about the second book in the Kricket series. I fell in love with the first book and it took me by surprise. Now I must know what happens next!
Plus, just look at that cover!



Release Date: March 31, 2015
Series: Book Two in the Kricket Trilogy

Book Description:

Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.


A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.

  1. I love the watery feel! :D I wonder if the first book was called "Under the Stars"? or something like that? Because if it is, I think my co-blogger recently reviewed it!
