.Waiting On Wednesday #20

Hosted By Jill @Breaking The Spine

My wow features Dare To You, the second installment to the Pushing The Limits series. I loved Pushing The Limits, so I'm excited to see what happens next with the characters.
My second wow is a spin-off to the Hex Hall series. Even though I haven't started reading the Hex Hall series, yet, I really want to, and love the cover to the spin-off. The girl looks fierce!

Dare You To (Pushing the Limits, #2)



Dare You To(Pushing the Limits #2)
By Katie McGarry

Expected publication: May 28th 2013 by Harlequin Teen

"I dare you..."

If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness.

 That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt
who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all....

Expected publication: May 14th 2013 by Disney-Hyperion

Fifteen-year-old Izzy Brannick was trained to fight monsters. For centuries, her family has hunted magical creatures. But when Izzy’s older sister vanishes without a trace while on a job, Izzy's mom decides they need to take a break.

Izzy and her mom move to a new town, but they soon discover it’s not as normal as it appears. A series of hauntings has been plaguing the local high school, and Izzy is determined to prove her worth and investigate. But assuming the guise of an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who's always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.

Can Izzy trust her new friends to help find the secret behind the hauntings before more people get hurt?

Rachel Hawkins' delightful spin-off brings the same wit and charm as the New York Times best-selling Hex Hall series. Get ready for more magic, mystery and romance.

  6. I almost featured Dare You To as well. I am in love with that sexy cover! I am upset it isn't featuring Beth and Isaiah though. I never finished the Hex Hall series because I was mad with how she ended it so I never read the last book. Not sure if I should read the spin-off yet.
