2013 WoWs: Worth the Wait?

The Waiting On Wednesday meme hosted by Breaking the Spine is my favorite weekly feature to post. I do it rather religiously, really, and can't recall ever missing a Wednesday since I started blogging seriously in January. For those who don't know, WoW is the chance for avid readers to spotlight yet-to-be-released titles they are really excited to read. But when those titles finally release and we finally get to read them, were they actually worth the wait? Here's how my 2013 WoW picks measured up!

Relic by Renee Collins (review)
Rush by Eve Silver (unfinished as well - it was just that bad) (DNF)
Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike (almost didn't finish this one) (review)
Frozen by Melissa de la Cruz & Michael Johnston (a miracle I finished) (review)

Looks like most of them turned out good - woohoo! The rest of my 2013 WoW picks are mainly 2014 titles I have yet to get my hands on, or a few 2013s I just haven't been able to get to yet. Looks like I have some catching up to do in 2014...

So have you read any of these? What did you think of them? 

Thank you to Inspiring Insomnia for letting me steal the idea for this post! Check out how her 2013 WoWs measured up on her blog here.

  1. Oh man, I totally liked The Ward and Relic more then you did, that's for sure. And shockingly I haven't read any of the books on your awesome list. I guess I should get on that at some point? I love the idea behind this post though, it's so clever!
