Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

Though I haven't read anything by Kresley Cole (yet), I know that she is very loved in the worl of adult fiction, so I'm super excited for her debut YA novel. Cover boy is also smokin', so that helps ;)

Title: Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles #1)
Author: Kresley Cole
Publication Date: October 2, 2012
Published By: Simon & Schuster

Summary
Poison Princess centers on 16-year-old Evangeline "Evie" Greene, a privileged teenager from Louisiana. When an apocalyptic event decimates her hometown, killing everyone she loves, Evie realizes the hallucinations she'd been having for the past year were actually visions of the future — and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophecy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of teens have been chosen to re-enact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it's not always clear who is on which side…

Poison Princess

Not sure what genre this would fall into exactly, maybe a dystopian and fantasy kind of feel, but it sounds great and I'm loving the cover.

Title: Crewel (Crewel World #1)
Author: Gennifer Albin
Publication Date:October 16, 2012
Published By: Farrar, Strauss and Giroux Books

Summary
Incapable. Awkward. Artless. 

That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail. 
Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested. 
Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight. 
Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape. 
Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back.
