Waiting on Wednesday - Erased by Jennifer Rush & Alienated by Melissa Landers

Hi everyone, thank-you so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I have chosen two WoW’s for this week - Erased by Jennifer Rush, I adored the first book in the series and also Alienated by Melissa Landers which sounds amazing!

Erased (Altered, #2)
Author: Jennifer Rush
Series: Altered
Pages: 275
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Little Brown Young Readers
Release date: 7th January 2014

Synopsis. (Goodreads)

They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is trying to make sense of the memories resurfacing from her old life. At the same time, she's learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.
Then a figure from Anna's childhood reappears. Is it a Branch setup, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Uncertain of where her loyalties lie, Anna must fight to learn the truth -- before she is betrayed again. Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased?
Jennifer Rush delivers a thrilling sequel to Altered in a novel packed with mysteries, lies, and surprises that are sure to keep readers guessing until the last age is turned.

Alienated (Alienated, #1)
Author: Melissa Landers
Series: Alienated
Pages: 352
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Release date: 4th February 2014

Synopsis. (Goodreads)

Interplanetary relations have never been more exciting! The first in a funny, romantic YA sci-fi series.

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.

  2. Erased will blow your mind! I just read it this month, and it is so epic. Even better than Altered :D
    And Alienated <3 It sounds amazing. I have an ARC of this one too and I really cannot wait to read it. I hope it lives up to my expectations.

    My WoW

  3. Great picks, the second is new to me but sounds interesting. I tried to read Altered but couldn't get into it. I should try again!

    My Waiting on Wednesday

  4. I still haven't read the first book in Altered series but the guy on the first cover was better (yeah irrelevant but what can I say). But Alienated sounds so amazing and I can't wait to read it. I'm so jealous of all people who have the ARCs as the book won't be out till the next year :(
    Great picks!

    Tanja @ Ja čitam, a ti?

    My WoW

  9. I haven't read any of Jennifer Rush's books yet but I've seen a lot of my friends read Altered so I'll have to double check and make sure that series is on my TBR! Thx for the reminder.

    And holy cow is Alienated looking awesome!!! I had a WoW on that a few weeks back. I'm just trying to figure out how I'm going to get my hands on it early :(

    My Wow

  10. I love the sound of both books but I haven't had the chance to read the first book in the Altered series. I do have all of them on my to-read list. I hope you enjoy reading both of them. Great picks!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  11. I'm so excited for Erased too! I adored the first book and thought it was a lot of fun.
    Alienated is another book on my wish-list. I just love that cover so much!
    Great picks, Sharon! :)

  12. Agh, I still haven’t read Altered. Another one of those books I wish I had as an ebook instead. I really want to catch up with this series though because I hear book one (and 2) is great!

  13. Great picks! I've read two of Landers's adult books (under a pen name) and loved them. So I can imagine Alienated will be great!

  14. I really want to try Alternate and the Altered series is om my wishlist, great picks this week:)

  15. I'm not sure I've seen this cover for Erased but I sure love the orange on the cover (and I more than appreciate those abs ;)
