Waiting On Wednesday #17

Welcome to this weeks Waiting On Wednesday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

What am I waiting on this week? The Lovely Reckless by Kami Garcia

I’ve become an expert at avoiding things that could hurt me—which means I will figure out how to stay away from Marco Leone.

Seventeen-year-old Frankie Devereux would do anything to forget the past. Haunted by the memory of her boyfriend’s death, she lives her life by one dangerous rule: Nothing matters. At least, that’s what Frankie tells herself after a reckless mistake forces her to leave her privileged life in the Heights to move in with her dad—an undercover cop. She transfers to a public high school in the Downs, where fistfights don’t faze anyone and illegal street racing is more popular than football.

Marco Leone is the fastest street racer in the Downs. Tough, sexy, and hypnotic, he makes it impossible for Frankie to ignore him—and how he makes her feel. But the risks Marco takes for his family could have devastating consequences for them both. When Frankie discovers his secret, she has to make a choice. Will she let the pain of the past determine her future? Or will she risk what little she has left to follow her heart?

Release Date: October 4, 2016

I don't read a whole lot of Young Adult but there are a few YA authors on my auto-buy list and Kami Garcia is one of them so obviously I'm anxiously awaiting the release of this one. But come on, have you read that blurb?! Even if it wasn't by one of my favorite authors I would have still added it to my TBR just for the blurb alone. Is it October yet?!

What are you waiting on this week?

I absolutely adore the cover for this! The synopsis reminds me a little of Katie McGarry's Crash Into You and Allison van Diepen's Snitch - both books which I loved. I can see why you're prepared to buck your reading trend for this one!

This is the first time I have seen anything about this book. I have only read a few books by Kami Garcia but I really enjoyed The Legion series. Thanks for sharing this one!

How did I not know about this new release by Kami Garcia? I want it, too! It sounds very different from her other books.
I hope you'll enjoy it when you get your hands on it, Danielle!
