Waiting On Wednesday #76!!


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine  that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!

So, what book am I impatiently and biting my nails while I wait for it this week? Invaded by Melissa Landers!!




Goodreads Summary:

 "The romantic sequel to Alienated takes long-distance relationships to a new level as Cara and Aelyx long for each other from opposite ends of the universe...until a threat to both their worlds reunites them.

Cara always knew life on planet L’eihr would be an adjustment. With Aelyx, her L’eihr boyfriend, back on Earth, working to mend the broken alliance between their two planets, Cara is left to fend for herself at a new school, surrounded by hostile alien clones. Even the weird dorm pet hates her.

Things look up when Cara is appointed as human representative to a panel preparing for a human colony on L’eihr. A society melding their two cultures is a place where Cara and Aelyx could one day make a life together. But with L’eihr leaders balking at granting even the most basic freedoms, Cara begins to wonder if she could ever be happy on this planet, even with Aelyx by her side.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Aelyx, finds himself thrown into a full-scale PR campaign to improve human-L’eihr relations. Humans don’t know that their very survival depends on this alliance: only Aelyx’s people have the technology to fix the deadly contamination in the global water supply that human governments are hiding. Yet despite their upper hand, the leaders of his world suddenly seem desperate to get humans on their side, and hardly bat an eye at extremists’ multiple attempts on Aelyx’s life."



Why am I eagerly awaiting Invaded this week? Well, I was lucky enough to get an ARC of the first book in the series, Alienated and I loved it enough to preorder it! So now after that ending, waiting for the sequel has been no fun at all! I cannot wait till my preorder of Invaded gets here!

What are you all (im)patiently awaiting this week?

  2. I still have to read Alienated but I can't wait Pili! I've been lucky enough to meet Melissa a number of times as she lives nearby, and she is the sweetest. I'm pretty excited I'll be able to binge read both of these though. I love it when I can do that:)

    1. Binge reading is the best! Oh so lucky to have met Melissa! I've only interacted with her via Twitter, but she is the sweetest!

  3. I liked the first book well enough, but apparently not enough to want to continue the series. The covers are wonderful, though, they make me want to own the books just so I could hug them all day.
    Weird? I think not.
