“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to. My book this week is : Borrowed Souls (Soul Charmer #1) by Chelsea Mueller.
Callie Delgado always puts family first, and unfortunately her brother knows it. She’s emptied her savings, lost work, and spilled countless tears trying to keep him out of trouble, but now he’s in deeper than ever, and his debt is on Callie’s head. She’s given a choice: do some dirty work for the mob, or have her brother returned to her in tiny pieces.
Renting souls is big business for the religious population of Gem City. Those looking to take part in immoral—or even illegal—activity can borrow someone else’s soul, for a price, and sin without consequence.
To save her brother, Callie needs a borrowed soul, but she doesn’t have anywhere near the money to pay for it. The slimy Soul Charmer is willing to barter, but accepting his offer will force Callie into a dangerous world of magic she isn’t ready for.
With the help of the guarded but undeniably attractive Derek—whose allegiance to the Charmer wavers as his connection to Callie grows—she’ll have to walk a tight line, avoid pissing off the bad guys, all while struggling to determine what her loyalty to her family’s really worth.
Losing her brother isn’t an option. Losing her soul? Maybe.
Not a long wait for this one – May 2017.

My book this week is : The Tiger’s Daughter (Their Bright Ascendency #1) by K. Arsenault Rivera. This sounds amazing! Bit of a long wait but I couldn’t help but highlight it!
The Hokkaran empire has conquered every land within their bold reach―but failed to notice a lurking darkness festering within the people. Now, their border walls begin to crumble, and villages fall to demons swarming out of the forests.
Away on the silver steppes, the remaining tribes of nomadic Qorin retreat and protect their own, having bartered a treaty with the empire, exchanging inheritance through the dynasties. It is up to two young warriors, raised together across borders since their prophesied birth, to save the world from the encroaching demons.
This is the story of an infamous Qorin warrior, Barsalayaa Shefali, a spoiled divine warrior empress, O-Shizuka, and a power that can reach through time and space to save a land from a truly insidious evil.
Due for release October 2017

Mary Jekyll, alone and penniless following her parents’ death, quickly finds herself drawn into the secrets of her father’s mysterious past.

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to. My book this week is : A Kiss Before Doomsday (Dru Jasper #2) by Laurence MacNaughton. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book (It Happened One Doomsday) and so I’m very much looking forward to this one.
When sorcerers disappear off the streets of Denver, the only person to notice a pattern is Dru, proprietor of The Crystal Connection and newly-minted sorceress. Monstrous creatures are attacking and dragging off anyone with magical powers. Signs point to forbidden necromancy in the hands of someone trying to fulfill the prophecy of the apocalypse scroll.
With the dead rising from the grave, Dru fears someone is picking up where the Harbingers left off half a century ago. Now more than ever, Dru needs half-demon Greyson and his infernal car, Hellbringer. Though Greyson is missing and presumed dead, Dru believes he’s alive—and trapped at the center of this evil.
Dru will need her friends—and her enemies—trusting in Rane’s strength, Opal’s wisdom, and her own crystal magic to infiltrate the mountainous fortress of a powerful sorcerer intent on bringing about doomsday.
Because the moment the prophecy is fulfilled, legions of undead will rise to consume the souls of everyone on Earth…
This one is due out July so there’s plenty of time to catch up with No.1 if you need to do so!
