I apologize for the lack of posts this week. The school year will be ending in less than three weeks and I am trying my best to handle it all. Unfortunately, that means blogging has been on the back burner, but I hope to have more posts up next week. *Fingers crossed*

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! This week I found some really interesting adult reads that I'm really curious about. Let me know in the comments what book(s) you can't wait to read.





A Robot in the Garden by Deborah Install 
Publish date: May 10, 2016
Publisher: Sourcebooks Landmark


 This book was originally published in the U.K. last year, but it will be released soon in the U.S. It has the whimsical, charming feel that reminded me a lot of The Rosie Project. I also like that it crosses a lot of different genres. 

What would you do if you found a robot in your back garden? For 34-year-old Ben Chambers the answer is obvious: find out where it came from and return it home, even if it means losing his wife in the process. Determined to achieve something for once in his life, Ben embarks on a journey that takes him and the endearing robot, Tang, to the far side of the globe...and back again. Along the way Ben begins to change, subtly at first, and then in ways that only become clear on his return to the house he's always lived in.



The Sudden Appearance of Hope by Claire North
Publish date: May 17, 2016
Publisher: Redhook


 I haven't read a good thriller in a while and the description for this book caught my eye right away. 


Listen.
All the world forgets me. First my face, then my voice, then the consequences of my deeds.
So listen. Remember me.

My name is Hope Arden, and you won't know who I am. We've met before - a thousand times. But I am the girl the world forgets.

It started when I was sixteen years old. A slow declining, an isolation, one piece at a time.

A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A teacher who forgets to chase my missing homework. A friend who looks straight through me and sees a stranger.

No matter what I do, the words I say, the people I hurt, the crimes I commit - you will never remember who I am.

That makes my life tricky. But it also makes me dangerous . . .





Smoke by Dan Vyleta
Publish date: May 24, 2016
Publisher: Doubleday


 This book looks like it has a lot to offer. From its description alone, 
it has a combination of thriller, fantasy, historical fiction, with a dash of horror. I've also read quite a few glowing reviews for it. 

An England where people who are wicked in thought or deed are marked by the Smoke that pours forth from their bodies, a sign of their fallen state. The aristocracy do not smoke, proof of their virtue and right to rule, while the lower classes are drenched in sin and soot. An England utterly strange and utterly real.

An elite boarding school where the sons of the wealthy are groomed to take power as their birthright. Teachers with mysterious ties to warring political factions at the highest levels of government. Three young people who learn everything they’ve been taught is a lie—knowledge that could cost them their lives. A grand estate where secrets lurk in attic rooms and hidden laboratories. A love triangle. A desperate chase. Revolutionaries and secret police. Religious fanatics and cold hearted scientists. Murder. A London filled with danger and wonder. A tortured relationship between a mother and a daughter, and a mother and a son. Unexpected villains and unexpected heroes. Cool reason versus passion. Rich versus poor. Right versus wrong, though which is which isn’t clear.
