Waiting on Wednesday #30

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on! 
This week . . . 

Title:  Alienated
Series:  Alienated #1
Author:  Melissa Landers
Publisher:  Disney Hyperion 
Release Date:  February 4th, 2014
 Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara's classmates get swept up by anti-L'eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn't safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara's locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she's fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.
Why I'm waiting on Alienated:  I really like the whole alien thing.  After reading the Lux series, I've been on the search for another series sort of like it!  This one really caught my attention because of the awesome cover!  I like the contrast in colors and how it represents the two worlds!  Also, the blurb sounds so awesome!  I really want this one!  Is is February yet?  

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?



  1. I've read my first alien book this year, so I'm interested to see more of this! I like the sound of the blurb :)


  2. I can't wait to read this one too!!! Never read a book like this so it might be my first :)

    Because reading is better than real life
    My WOW
