Waiting On Wednesday: This Is So Not Happening, Getting Over Garrett Delaney and Masque of Red Death

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

This Is So Not Happening (He's So/She's So #3) by Kieran Scott

Hardcover: 256 pages
Release date: May 1st, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Books
Goodreads Summary: After their long summer apart, Ally and Jake were hoping for a drama free senior year. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like things will work out that way...again. 
It turns out that Chloe is pregnant and says that Jake is the father. Hammond is pissed at his best friend, but mostly can't believe that Ally would stay with Jake. But Ally is tired of being apart from Jake and is willing to make it work. But that is easier said than done when Jake starts blowing Ally off to go to doctor's appointments with Chloe and Ally joins the school play and meets a new cute guy. 
But as graduation approaches, things get more complicated as new secrets come out and Ally realizes maybe Jake isn't the guy she thought he was. After everything they've been through can Ally and Jake get out of Orchard Hill with their relationship in tact?
I've read the first two books in this series and I must say Kieran Scott likes torturing her readers! Both books have ended with a cliffhanger and the one in He's So Not Worth It is frustrating. I can't believe I have to wait for 5 more months!

Getting Over Garrett Delaney

Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald 

Hardcover: 336 pages
Release date: January 24th, 2012
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Goodreads summary: Can a twelve-step program help Sadie kick her unrequited crush for good? Abby McDonald serves up 
her trademark wit and wisdom in a hilarious new novel.

Seventeen-year-old Sadie is in love: epic, heartfelt, and utterly onesided. The object of her obsession - ahem, affection - is her best friend, Garrett Delaney, who has been oblivious to Sadie's
feelings ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust (not to mention his deep-blue eyes). For two long, painful years, Sadie has been Garrett's constant companion, sharing his taste in everything from tragic Russian literature to art films to '80s indie rock
- all to no avail. But when Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder - until he calls to say he's fallen in love. With some other girl! A
heartbroken Sadie realizes that she's finally had enough. It's time for total Garrett detox! Aided by a barista job, an eclectic crew of new friends (including the hunky chef, Josh), and a customized selfhelp
guide, Sadie embarks on a summer of personal reinvention full of laughter, mortifying meltdowns, and a double shot of love.
This sounds exactly like my kind of book. I've been on a roll with contemporary stories lately and I kind of sympathize with Sadie.

Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Hardcover: 320 pages
Release date: April 24th, 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins
Goodreads Summary: Everything is in ruins. 

A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them. 

So what does Araby Worth have to live for? 

Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all. 

But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does. 

And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her.
I'm not sure if this is steampunk or dystopia. Either way, I love both genres and methinks the cover is pretty! Besides, I have a thing for Wills in YA books.

What are you anxiously waiting on this week? Just leave a comment of the link to your WoW post!
