Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I can't even tell you how excited I am about these two books:
How to Lead a Life of Crime
by Kirsten Miller
To be published by Razorbill on February 21, 2013
Kirsten Miller is the author of The Eternal Ones YA series published by Razorbill and the Kiki Strike middle grade series published by Bloomsbury. I'm a huge fan of her work and I can't wait to read this.
Here's the blurb:
A Meth Dealer. Prostitute. A Serial Killer.
Anywhere else, they’d be vermin. At the Mandel Academy, they’re called prodigies. The most exclusive school in New York City has been training young criminals for over a century. Only the most ruthless students are allowed to graduate. The rest disappear. Flick, a teenage pickpocket, has risen to the top of his class. But then Mandel recruits a fierce new competitor who also happens to be Flick’s old flame. They’ve been told only one of them will make it out of the Mandel Academy. Will they find a way to save each other—or will the school destroy them both?
So .... will Flick and his flame survive? Will Razorbill let me review this? Stay tuned and find out ...
Update after post was scheduled: YES! While Penguin rejected most of my NetGalley requests, they said yes to this one yesterday. *happy dance*

To be published on February 26, 2013 by Walker Children's
Robin Benway wrote Audrey, Wait! -- which I raved about in my "I'm With the Band" roundup post -- and also The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May and June. I love her books!
Here's the scoop on this one:
This one sounds like Heist Society meets Gossip Girl! I'm so up for that. Sometimes I really need a break from the dystopian gloom and doom.
Thanks, Bloomsbury, for letting me read this one. Can't wait!
What book are you dying to read? Let me know in comments, and let me know if you have a WoW post today and I'll visit you back :)
