Waiting on Wednesday (#38)

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

This week I'm waiting on Alienated by Melissa Landers.

13574417Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them. 

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara's classmates get swept up by anti-L'eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn't safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara's locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class. 

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she's fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

Hot aliens...where have I seen this before? JLA may have done it, but Landers seems to have created such a unique concept surrounding a topic that is increasingly becoming overdone. I honestly cannot wait to get my hands on it!

So what are you waiting on this week?


  1. Have been seeing a lot of this one lately! Hope you enjoy it once you get it!

  2. Every time I read the synopsis for this one I get even more excited! It sounds like it's going to be such an amazing books and I'm interested to find out Aelyx's real purpose for being on Earth is!
    Great pick! :D

  3. I've seen this pick a lot this week. I think that might be a sign that I should read it too, but it's the alien part that's throwing me off. I think I'll just see what the consensus on it is before I grab a copy!
