Waiting on Wednesday: Aprilynne Pike

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week I spotlight TWO books coming out this year by the same author, Aprilynne Pike! She's a local gal, and I've had the pleasure of speaking with her on several occasions. I heard about both of these books long before they were announced, so needless to say I've been looking forward to them with great anticipation for a very long time! Check them out:

Life After Theft
Title: Life After Theft
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Release Date: April 30, 2013
Summary (from Goodreads):

Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto. 

No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so--in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history--he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice.

Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Why I'm Looking Forward to It: She had me at "klepto ghost." :}

Title: Earthbound
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Release Date: July 30, 2013
Summary (from Goodreads):

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. Tavia will soon to discover that she’s an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.

A heart-stopping romance built on a love triangle like you’ve never seen before and filled with epic stakes and a centuries-long conspiracy.

Why I'm Looking Forward to It: Girl who can create something out of nothing fights against an evil society to save the world all while trying to decide between two hot guys? Yes, please!

Don't both these books sounds awesome?! And right now you can enter to win them and her anthology, Defy the Dark, along with a boatload of candy on her website! You can find the contest here - good luck! :)
