Waiting on Wednesday!

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here's my pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

Catcing Fire (book two of The Hunger Games) by Suzanne Collins, out September 1st!

Here's the book trailer for Catching Fire because if you haven't read The Hunger Games then the Synopsis would give too much away , I think.

I also wrote a Review for The Hunger Games (book one) here, and here I'll share the book tralier for it too.

Awesome book I can't wait for Catching Fire!!!

22 Witty Remarks!:

Lizzy said...

Great choice! I can't wait for this one to come out either. It almost makes summer ending worth it.

Juju said...

Ooo I have to read Hunger Games!

Lori said...

I haven't read Hunger Games but have heard it's good and it does look interesting!
Here is my WOW:

The Book Explorer said...

Hey Krista! So I loved Catching Fire. I just happened to be one of the few who got to read it early~

Thanks for following me. =) I follow you now too!

I like your background btw~

I look forward to seeing what other fantasy books you read. =3


Mary said...

I know readers are really looking forward to this book. Good pick!

Rachel said...

I can't wait to read this. I've heard its not what your expecting but its really good. Suzanne Collins is a great author. Good WoW! Its already on my list.

Melissa said...

You are making me want to get to Hunger Games sooner than the schedule is opening up for me. This is a great pick!

You have really got the hang of the bloging way. This is really great! I am still moving in a slower speed. Maybe around November I will be able to pick up the pace (once football slows down with the kid).

I am on page 99 in Name of the Wind. I hope to be able to pick up the pace here. This book reads so easily so it shouldn't be to hard to do. Lets see today is Wed. I hope to be through the second section by Friday night.

Lauren said...

I'm going crazy waiting for this one! I think it may be my most-anticipated of the year.

Valerie said...

Great pick! I'm so excited to read this one too. It feels like I've been waiting forever!

Mishel said...

I've heard such great things about Suzanne Collins and her books! I haven't read my copy of Hunger Games yet but I will soon =)

Great choice!

Mrs. Foltz said...

Every one is talking about this and Hunger Games!!

Sheila (bookjourney) said...

I have heard so much about this book. I am going to have to read it!

Melissa said...

Yeah, I got at least one entry for "Fire" I caught the entry late. Since the winner will be picked today (I think the 20th). It does look good. I think I need to add these 2 books to my list to get. Huh... this list is growing by leaps and bounds. ;) thats okay! It would be nice to win something somewhere though!

Good Luck!!

Krista said...

Bookmagic, It's awesome!

Sheila, thanks for stopping by, it's an awesome book!~

Cynthia said...

I loved this book!!! I didn't read it until January of 2009, but waiting the past 8 months for the sequel to come out has been brutal lol I can't wait until September 1st!

Krista said...

Cynthia, it seems we're not alone! It looks as though everyone is anxiously awaiting Catching Fire! Thanks for stopping by to comment and follow, too cool!

Sarbear said...

Krista-- award for you at my page. Bwahahahah!

The Art of Kim Kincaid said...

Can't believe these are FAN made. Impressive. So in Catching Fire, does Kat end up with Peeta?? I want more Dale....he intrigues me.

I don't picture Peeta and Katniss that old (as portrayed in the vids), but it didn't stop me from watching about 10 times. Can't wait for my pre-ordered copy either.

Great website, Krista.

Krista said...

Kim, I want more of Dale as well! I hope we see more of him in Catching Fire, too. I didn't picture them that old either, but I really think the girl who played Katniss is really close to what I feel she looks like. Peeta, however, I didn't picture him as such a hunk! LOL! I really loved that video, though.
