Waiting on Wednesday – Things I Know About Love, 13 to Life, & Tableau Gate

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

I am a little scared of Things I Know About Love by Kate Le Vann because it looks like it might start the waterworks, but really want to read this one.  I will just have to stock up on tissues before I crack open the cover.  It will be in stores in June.

From Amazon:

Things I know about love.

1. People don’t always tell you the truth about how they feel.
2. Nothing that happens between two people is guaranteed to be private.
3. I don’t know if you ever get over having your heart broken.

Livia Stowe’s past experiences with love have been nothing but disappointing, but all that is about to change.  After years of illness, she’s boarding a plane for the first time to spend the summer in Princeton, New Jersey, with her brother who’s studying abroad.  This Brit is determined to make the most of her American summer and to record every moment of it in her private blog.

America is everything that Livia’s ever dreamed of.  And then she meets Adam.  

Swept up in the promise of romance and the magical New York City that Adam shows her, Livia is smitten, but with all she knows about love, is Livia really ready to risk her heart again?

13 to Life by Shannon Delany is another werewolf book.  It’s a good thing that I have a lot of love for the hairy beasts, because there are a lot of books about them on store shelves.  This will be in stores in June.

From Amazon:

Everything about Jessie Gillmansen’s life changed when her mother died. Now even her hometown of Junction is changing.  Mysterious dark things are happening. All Jessie wants is to avoid more change. But showing a hot new guy around Junction High, she’s about to discover a whole new type of change. Pietr Rusakova is more than good looks and a fascinating accent—he’s a guy with a dangerous secret. And his very existence is sure to bring big trouble to Jessie’s small town. It seems change is the one thing Jessie can’t avoid…

Edited – 05/26/10 I would have been waiting for my manga pick, but parent company DC Comics axed CMX, and then scrubbed any mention of their line on the DC website.  So, here is a titile that might have been, but alas, is no more:  Tableau Gate by Rika Suzuki sounds a lot like Cardcaptor Sakura, but it is a CMX book, so I will give it a try.  They rarely disappoint.  The book will be in stores in August.

From Amazon:

High school student Satsuki Hikawa lives alone in a mansion while his grandfather, who is his only other living family member and an art dealer, travels all over the country. One day Satsuki’s grandfather sends him an art book that is called Tablet. Each page in the book seems to represent different tarot cards, but most of the symbols are missing. Soon after receiving the book a mysterious girl storms in to Satsuki’s home and claims that she is the owner of the Tablet and tells Satsuki all of the missing symbols must be found and returned to the book before "they" make any mischief. In order to find and return the symbols, Satsuki must call out the right symbols to defeat the escaped ones. Any symbols that he returns to the book will become his servants. Will Satsuki be able to find and capture all of the symbols that ran away?
