Waiting on Wednesday {31}

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where bloggers post about much-awaited releases!
 
Title: Goodbye, Rebel Blue
Author: Shelley Coriell
Release Date: October 1st 2013
Publisher: Amulet Books
Age Group: Young Adult
Rebecca Blue is a rebel with an attitude whose life is changed by a chance encounter with a soon-to-be dead girl. Rebel (as she’s known) decides to complete the dead girl’s bucket list to prove that choice, not chance, controls her fate. In doing so, she unexpectedly opens her mind and heart to a world she once dismissed—a world of friendships, family, and faith. With a shaken sense of self, she must reevaluate her loner philosophy—particularly when she falls for Nate, the golden boy do-gooder who never looks out for himself. Perfect for fans of Jay Asher’s blockbuster hit Thirteen Reasons Why, Coriell’s second novel features her sharp, engaging voice along with realistic drama and unforgettable characters.
Sounds good, doesn't it? I haven't read Thirteen Reasons Why because it seems like such a heavy read, but Rebel Blue sounds much lighter than that so yep. Gimme!

Title: Fearsome Dreamer (Fearsome Dreamer #1)
Author: Laure Eve
Release Date: October 3rd 2013
Publisher: Hot Key Books
Age Group: Young Adult
There is a world where gods you’ve never heard of have wound themselves into hearts, and choice has led its history down a different path.
This is a world where France made a small, downtrodden island called England part of its vast and bloated empire.
There are people here who can cross a thousand miles with their minds. There are rarer people still who can move between continents in the blink of an eye.
These people are dangerous.
And wanted. Desperately wanted.
Apprentice hedgewitch Vela Rue knows that she is destined for more. She knows being whisked off from a dull country life to a city full of mystery and intrigue is meant to be. She knows she has something her government wants, a talent so rare and precious and new that they will do anything to train her in it.
But she doesn’t know that she is being lied to. She doesn’t know that the man teaching her about her talent is becoming obsessed by her, and considered by some to be the most dangerous man alive...
If that synopsis doesn't scream 'unique' to you, I don't know what does. Gods and hedgewitches and an evil-sounding mentor? I'm gonna have to bug my sister to get this for me.
