Waiting on Wednesday (June 14)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme shares the upcoming books that I'm most excited about.

Bunheads by Sophie Flack

As a dancer with the ultra-prestigious Manhattan Ballet Company, nineteen-year-old Hannah Ward juggles intense rehearsals, dazzling performances and complicated backstage relationships. Up until now, Hannah has happily devoted her entire life to ballet.

But when she meets a handsome musician named Jacob, Hannah's universe begins to change, and she must decide if she wants to compete against the other "bunheads" in the company for a star soloist spot or strike out on her own in the real world. Does she dare give up the gilded confines of the ballet for the freedoms of everyday life?

The Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus 2) by Rick Riordan

In The Lost Hero, three demigods named Jason, Piper, and Leo made their first visit to Camp Half-Blood, where they inherited a quest:
Seven half-bloods shall answer the call,
To storm or fire the world must fall.
An oath to keep with a final breath,
And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.
Who are the other four mentioned in the prophecy? The answer may lie in another camp miles away, where a new camper has shown up and appears to be the son of Neptune, god of the sea...

I'm fascinated by Bunhead. And it totally reminds me of Degas ballet dancers.

My daughter is itching for the new Riordan! He will have a big release party here in Austin for that should come! ;)

I hadn't heard of Bunheads before - very interesting. I had some of those own thoughts and decisions to make when I was in high school (albeit whether to leave the coccoon of the swimming world), so I think I'll definitely be checking it out. Great picks!

If you'd like you can check out my WoW here.

Haven't heard of Bunheads before but the summary sounds good and I like the cover too.
