Waiting on Wednesday: The Apollo Academy

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: The Apollo Academy
Author: Kimberly P. Chase (Twitter)
Publisher: Independent
Publish Date: August 8, 2013
Genre: NA, Sci-Fi, Romance
Pages: 340

As the heiress to Titon Technologies, eighteen-year-old Aurora Titon can have whatever she wants—clothes, expensive gadgets, anything money can buy. All she really wants is to escape her pampered, paparazzi-prone life for the stars.

Becoming the first female pilot to train as an astronaut for the Apollo Academy is exactly the chance for which she has been waiting. Everything would be perfect if it weren't for her unreciprocated crush on a fellow student, the sexy astronaut bent on making her life hell, and the fact that someone keeps trying to kill her.
Guys, I love me some sic-fi. This is no secret. It's also no secret that I have an insatiable lust for literary men. Is that too much? Oh well...the secret's out. Regardless, it sounds to me like The Apollo Academy might just offer all I could ever want from a book, plus a kick-ass cover to boot. I mean, seriously, guys. Tell me that isn't absolutely gorgeous. Here's to hoping this book is as perfect as I think it could be because this could be my first foray into new adult...What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  8. Um, yes please to this book Melissa! Unrequited attraction/antagonistic relationship? One of my very favorite romantic setups, plus Sci Fi as a genre is really growing on me, so this is an all around winner! AND we don't have to wait too much longer!

    1. Of course! Here's hoping it's as promising as we think...considering the author is a science nut, herself...I think it very well could be amazing!

  10. I do like the cover and the synopsis of this book. It sounds something like a New Adult version of Academy 7 which I loved. I shall have to remember to check it out when published. August isn't too far away!

  12. I used to never buy Sci-fi books because I swayed more toward Paranormal, but recently I've found some really amazing storylines that have just pulled me in; and this is definitely one of them! Amazing pick, Melissa! :)

    1. Paranormal was my go-to when I started blogging, but I've strayed more towards mysteries, thrillers and sci-fi lately :)
