I have a plethora of books I’m waiting on. The trouble is, all the ones I’ve not done a WoW post for don’t have covers, release dates, and/or titles as of yet, making difficult to feature them. So for the next foreseeable future, I’m going to be focusing on books that I think I would be waiting on if I’d actually made the time to start the series.
The Testing is a book I disregarded initially because I read one rather underwhelming review about it. Over the last couple of months, however, I have come across at least half a dozen rave reviews which definitely made me reconsider my decision not to read it. I do love books about competitions, so I think I actually might be giving the series a try sometime soon. I always love it when I start a series right before the final book is released – I really hate waiting!
What book are you waiting on? Is this a series you’d recommend I start reading?
I haven’t read this one, but I have seen mixed reviews for the series. I hope you like it if/when you decide to read it. I hate waiting when it comes to a series as well, so I know what you mean. Here is my WoW.
Thank you – I’m hoping I like it too! Thanks for stopping by. :-)
I haven’t read The Testing yet. I am exactly the same as you, I read one bad review and just wrote it off! Maybe I should actually give it a chance myself!!
Here is my WoW Pick
The reviews for the second and third books that I’ve seen so far have kind of won me over… I hope it’s worth wading through an apparently mediocre first book.
I’ve never even heard of this series, but it looks and sounds good, so thanks for sharing!
I know how it is when you don’t know which book to feature since you don’t have all the info you need :(
Here’s my WOW.
Yeah it makes doing a weekly post half… I maintain that our favorite authors just need to write faster ha ha.
Great pick. I haven’t started the series as yet either, and I do have a copy of book one on my TBR. Hope we both start it soon :)
Yeah, and now’s the time – the third book is almost out ha ha.
This sounds interesting! Nice pick.
Check out our WOW of this week.

I haven’t picked up this series because of the negative reviews either. But everyone seemed to love the second book and the covers are so awesome I really want to give it a try too!
Yeah – I’m hoping for at least an okay first book because you’re right, a lot of the great reviews have been about the second and third ones.
