Kat and Meg couldn’t be more different.

Kat’s anxiety makes it hard for her to talk to new people. The only place she feels safe is in front of her computer, playing her favorite video game.

Meg hates being alone, but her ADHD keeps pushing people away. Friends. Her boyfriend. Even the stepfather who raised her.

But when the two girls are thrown together for a year-long science project, they discover they do have one thing in common: their obsession with the online gaming star LumberLegs and his hilarious videos.

Meg’s pretty sure this is fate. Kat doesn’t know how to deal with someone who talks faster than she thinks. But if they can stick together and stay out of their heads, they might figure out how to help each other—and build the kind of friendship Kat never knew she wanted and Meg never believed she’d find.

Why I’m waiting: I love friendship books and this one sounds lovely and kind of a bit nerdy and very sweet and I want it.

{Waiting on Wednesday} The Traitor Conquer The WorldThe Traitor's Kiss by Erin Beaty
Series: Traitor's Trilogy #1
Published on May 9th 2017
by Imprint
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
Goodreads
Also by this author: The Traitor's Kiss (Traitor's Trilogy, #1)

An obstinate girl who will not be married.
A soldier desperate to prove himself.
A kingdom on the brink of war.

With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they’d call a lady―which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.

As the girls' military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust―and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.

Why I’m waiting: I’m a sucker for pretty covers and I can’t help but be drawn to this one.  A matchmaker turned spy?  How is that not intriguing pray tell?

What are you waiting for this week?

About Erin Beaty

I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, which means I can’t drive a tractor, but I won’t eat veggies that come from a can.

After high school, I tossed off to the U.S. Naval Academy where I earned my BS in Aerospace Engineering (Astronautics) and German (Ja!) then headed to the fleet as a weapons officer on a combat destroyer. After that I did a tour at the Center for Naval Leadership as an instructor, then resigned my commission to pursue my side hobby of populating the Church of Rome.

For the next few years, I followed my navy husband around the country, our growing family in tow, until one day I sat down at the computer and let one of the stories in my head out. Telling my friends and family I was trying to be a serious writer was a bit like coming out of the closet. At first it was terrifying, but many of them just nodded and said they had always known I was a writer, they were just waiting for the day I could acknowledge it.

I teach classes at The Muse Writers Center in Norfolk, Virginia, and I am also on the advisory board of Hampton Roads Writers.

In early 2016 I sold my first novel to Imprint, Macmillan for publication in June 2017, and I’ve been mentally screaming in joy and terror since.
