By: Dutton Juvenile

Can you hear Atlantia breathing?

For as long as she can remember, Rio has dreamt of the sand and sky Above—of life beyond her underwater city of Atlantia. But in a single moment, all her plans for the future are thwarted when her twin sister, Bay, makes an unexpected decision, stranding Rio Below. Alone, ripped away from the last person who knew Rio’s true self—and the powerful siren voice she has long hidden—she has nothing left to lose.

Guided by a dangerous and unlikely mentor, Rio formulates a plan that leads to increasingly treacherous questions about her mother’s death, her own destiny, and the complex system constructed to govern the divide between land and sea. Her life and her city depend on Rio to listen to the voices of the past and to speak long-hidden truths.

W.O.W.: All Fall Down by Ally Carter

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted byJill at Breaking the Spinethat spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


 All Fall Down (Embassy Row #1) by Ally Carter Publication: January 27, 2015 By: Scholastic 
Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her–so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door who is keeping an eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace–no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do.

Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, …

ANIMAL MAGNETISM (Series) by Jill Shalvis

When I was in NYC last May for BEA '14, I had the chance to meet Courtney and Erin, two of the FABULOUS publicists from Penguin-Berkley. (Seriously, Courtney, Erin and Jessica are some of my favorite people to work with!)  We chattedabout everything from BEA, to chocolate, to cupcakes and most importantly, who are our favorite authors all while enjoying a sinfully delicious hot chocolate from Jacques Torres Chocolate on Hudson Street. (I don't think I've ever been in a better smelling store!)  I mentioned to Courtney that Kristan Higgins is my "go-to" author for those times when I need a good laugh and guaranteed Happily-Ever-After. (Don't get me wrong, I still love my YA and NA books but sometimes I need to mix it up a little.) She asked if I had ever read any of Jill Shalvis' books, and I said no, but that I was aware that Jill and Kristan were Besties, and had no doubt I would enjoy Jill's writing as much as Kristan's.
