Waiting On Wednesday #12

Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

My WOW for this week actually features two books.
The Collector, a debut by Victoria Scott features a hottie named Dante, just reading the blurb, "He makes good girls....bad" definitely has me excited for this one and the cover is HOT!!
My second Wow is Solstice, by P.J. Hoover is a book that was first published May 4th 2011, but I guess itill be re-released by Tor/Macmillian, with it's kick-ass cover that I really love and with the mix of mythology and dystopia with monsters it should be a winner for me.

The Collector
Expected publication: March 2013 by Entangled Teen


Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.

Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.

Expected publication: June 21st 2013 by Tor Teen/Macmillan

Piper's world is dying.

Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles that threaten to destroy the earth. Amid this global heating crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom.

Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper’s life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth.

An imaginative melding of mythology and dystopia, Solstice is the first YA novel by talented newcomer P. J. Hoover
