"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: Tear Your Apart
Author: Sarah Cross
Expected Publication: January 27, 2015
An edgy fairy tale retelling of "Snow White" set in the world of Kill Me Softly.
Faced with a possible loophole to her "Snow White" curse, Viv goes underground, literally, to find the prince who's fated to rescue her. But is life safe in the Underworld worth the price of sacrficing the love that might kill her?
Why I am lurking on this: I just found this last week, and it made me realize that I haven't actually read any of the retellings on my list yet. I feel like I'm assembling a huge pile of them, but they are never the ones I buy... Kill Me Softly at least made it from Amazon onto my shelf. Maybe I should have a read-a-thon in 2015, what do you think? ^^
Me, my Shelf, and I is my version of a weekly recap post, and also a feature to tell you more about myself.

Not a chance, lol. Okay, so I'm pretty docile when I'm sick, or have to take care of someone who's sick, or have one of my migranes, and when my stomach is full -- but I guess that's pretty normal for a human being. But in general... nope. It's not like I can't keep still and have to do something every second of the day, but on an average day, I can't keep my mind still.

Saturday: Series Reading 2015
Sunday: Me, my Shelf, and I
I started watching the series Heroes. I know I'm always complaining about Sci-Fi, but that's just in text. I can't enjoy reading it because it's hard to comprehend in text. I just don't seem to get the big picture. But really love wathing this! Plus, it has some actors I already know and like in it. =)
Next weekend, I'll be away on a barcamp. The first barcamp for translators, actually. We'll only be 30 people, but it's my first time meeting any of "my own species" face to face, one of them my mentor from the association. I'm looking forward to this very much! However, that also means that there will be no recap post next week. the next one will be looking back two weeks, then.
What is Happily Ever Endings (HEE)? Check here.
Long Night Moon | Seasons of the Moon 3
by S.M. Reine
Something is killing innocent people around Rylie Gresham's town. The police think it's a wild animal, but she has other suspicions. There are new kids at school, and they have a lot in common with her: gold eyes, super strength, and a habit of turning furry. It seems Rylie's not the only werewolf around anymore.
It's up to Rylie and her werewolf-hunting boyfriend, Seth, to stop the killings. But saving lives doesn't come naturally to a monster, and territory battles could risk the life of her sickly aunt--not to mention her own. Rylie has no choice but to stand her ground, protect her home, and stop the murderers before anyone else gets hurt.
