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.
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.

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.
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?
