Waiting on Wednesday: Falling Kingdoms and Time Between Us

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

Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)

Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms #1) by Morgan Rhodes, Michelle Rowen  

Hardcover: 400
Release date: December 11th, 2012
Publisher: Razorbill
Goodreads Summary: In a land where magic has been forgotten but peace has reigned for centuries, a deadly unrest is simmering. Three kingdoms grapple for power—brutally transforming their subjects’ lives in the process. Amidst betrayals, bargains, and battles, four young people find their fates forever intertwined: 
 Cleo: A princess raised in luxury must embark on a rough and treacherous journey into enemy territory in search of a magic long thought extinct. 
 Jonas: Enraged at injustice, a rebel lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making. 
 Lucia: A girl adopted at birth into a royal family discovers the truth about her past—and the supernatural legacy she is destined to wield. 
 Magnus: Bred for aggression and trained to conquer, a firstborn son begins to realize that the heart can be more lethal than the sword... The only outcome that’s certain is that kingdoms will fall. Who will emerge triumphant when all they know has collapsed? 
I'm always in for a good Fantasy series and this one reminds me of Seven Realms, which I loved. I'm excited to know more about these four main characters and how they will weave the story together.

Time Between Us 

Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone 

Paperback: 384 pages
Release date: October 9thth, 2012
Publisher: Hyperion
Goodreads summary: Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett’s unique ability to travel through time and space brings him into Anna’s life, and with him, a new world of adventure and possibility. 
 As their relationship deepens, they face the reality that time might knock Bennett back where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate—and what consequences they can bear in order to stay together. 
 Fresh, exciting, and deeply romantic, TIME BETWEEN US is a stunning and spellbinding debut from an extraordinary new talent in YA
It's been awhile since I read a time travel book. Throw in the romance and it's on my wishlist.
