Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It is a way to spotlight books that have yet to be released and it is awesome and you should join.
My book pick of the week is…
OF NEPTUNE (#3)
Release Date: May 13th, 2014
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Emma and Galen’s kingdom and their love is threatened by long-lost Syrena in the brilliant conclusion to Anna Banks bestselling trilogy.
Emma, half human and half Syrena, and her Syrena love, Galen, need time together alone. Away from the kingdoms of Poseidon and Triton. Emma’s grandfather, the Poseidon king, suggests the two visit a small town called
Neptune. Neptuneis home to both Syrena and Half-Breeds alike. But Emma and Galen didn’t sign up to be peacemakers between the ocean and the land-dwelling, freshwater Syrena. They didn’t bargain for meeting a charming Half-Breed named Reed, who can barely disguise his feelings for Emma. And they especially didn’t expect to find themselves in the middle of a power struggle that threatens not only their love but their ocean kingdoms.
In this stunning conclusion to her bestselling Syrena Legacy, Anna Banks thrills fans with more action and romance than ever.
The Syrena Legacy trilogy is made of extremely fun and entertaining reads. I will always have a particularly fondness for Toraf and Rayna relationship, and so while Of Triton certainly had a very satisfying ending, I will never resist more Toraf being offered.
And no, Toraf is not the only reason I really want to read Of Neptune. Whatever do you mean? *offended look* I'm looking forward to Toraf and Rayna moments too obviously. So ha.
I can't forget the humor and Anna Bank's easy to read writing style that pulls you right in, so I think Of Neptune is a promise of awesomeness.
*suspicious stare at Reed*
My manga pick of the week is…
INU X BOKU SS (#3)
Release Date: April 22nd, 2014
Publisher: Yen Press
The residents of Ayakashi Hall decide to make a time capsule and bury it on the grounds, so everyone writes letters to their "future selves" to be included within. As Ririchiyo composes her letter, she reflects on her time with Soushi, realizing how much she has grown with the fox at her side. But when those heartfelt feelings are accidentally delivered not to her future self but to Soushi, Ririchiyo's budding social skills will be put to the test! Is she ready for a face-to-face confession of her true feelings?!
Inu x Boku Secret Service was an anime I absolutely adored when it first came out and so naturally the manga series is one I've had every intention of starting. This isn't a series I thought would be licensed in the United States for at least a while, so I think I'll forever love Yen Press. I'm also really looking forward to when this series is completed because I know all the volumes together will be pretty and I will love them forever too, but until then I'll just appreciate reading this story volume by volume.
