Waiting on Wednesday: The Road & Midnight Thief

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

Here are my WoW picks this week (click title for the Goodreads page):

Release date: December 2014

For four years I watched him roaming the halls of high school, always quiet, without a single clue of his A-list status. Then one night he ran into me, literally.  He thought he saved me, but he had no idea how impossible that was. Now he wants to talk. Now he wants to get to know me. Now he thinks he's in love with me. 
Stupid, stupid boy.   


I wish I'd found her earlier, but she chose to stay invisible. I watched her take in the world one breath at a time, while living her life alone. I told her that I saved her that night, but I lied. I think she saved me. She wants to push me away and tell me I'm wrong, but it's too late. Now she's been noticed. Now she's a part of me. Now I'm in love with her. Beautiful, beautiful girl.
This sounds another great YA Contemporary set in High School and one that should definitely be on my hands as soon as it is release in stores. I like High School romances...and sometimes reading something sweet is my getaway to relax plus it wouldn't hurt to know that I might add another boy on my long list of book-boyfriends (which I think Blake will soon join *wink*). The cover is beautiful and it only adds to the reason why it should be on my shelf. I am so excited for this one!

Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Pre-Order: Amazon | Book Depository
Growing up on Forge’s streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that’s not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs. 
But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she’s not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he’s persistent—and darkly attractive—and Kyra can’t quite resist his pull.

Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.

When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival—and vengeance—might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra’s past that threatens to reshape both their lives.

After reading the Seven Realms series which is such an amazing fantasy series I'm now always looking for another High Fantasy to read. I think Midnight Thief is just right up my alley and the synopsis is very interesting.
Action + Romance = I NEED this book NOW. No more explanations needed. :)
