Waiting on Wednesday #18 + First Two Chapters!

Today’s feature do not belong to a series for a change. I fell in love with this book the moment I’ve checked it’s rundown. The title and the book cover are equally intriguing! Frantically added it to my Want-To-Read list. Haha! I’m definitely waiting for this.

Lies, secrets, and magic — three things that define Kayla’s life.

Sixteen-year-old Kayla plans to spend her summer hanging out on the beach in Santa Barbara and stealing whatever she wants, whenever she wants it. Born with the ability to move things with her mind — things like credit cards, diamond rings, and buttons on cash registers — she has become a master shoplifter. She steals to build up a safety net, enough money for her and her mom to be able to flee if her dad finds them again. Well, that, and the thrill of using her secret talents.

But her summer plans change when she’s caught stealing by a boy named Daniel — a boy who needs her help and is willing to blackmail her to get it. Daniel has a talent of his own. He can teleport, appearing anywhere in the world in an instant, but he lies as easily as he travels. Together, they embark on a quest to find and steal an ancient incantation, written on three indestructible stones and hidden millennia ago, all to rescue Daniel’s kidnapped mother. But Kayla has no idea that this rescue mission will lead back to her own family — and to betrayals that she may not be able to forgive… or survive.


Expected publication would be on the 14th of October 2014 by Bloomsbury and it will be 368 pages on ebook. Yay! I’m so thrilled to have stumbled upon this book because it’s been a long time since I’ve read something like this. Telekinesis and Teleportation. Wow! Really something to look forward to. The rundown is so intriguing that I can’t wait to have a copy of my won. I’ve read this was rated Four Star on Goodreads and a lot of book lovers were posting awesome ARC reviews. Wish I could have one!

I’ve searched for giveaways, but didn’t find any. I believe an ARC giveaway was posted somewhere, but I just couldn’t find it or the giveaway could be done. That’s sad. I’ve also looked for book tours and same thing. Nothing. Where could they be? Hey! If you find anything, will you let me know? LOL! 😀

Anyway, what I have found are the first two chapters of this book. I haven’t read it though. I’m afraid I want to keep it, up until I’ll have the chance to get the book so I won’t be left out there waiting in vain because I got stuck on these chapters. I know. I’m pretty crazy, but for you guys I’ll be posting it here..

Chapter One and Two of Chasing Power

I’ll just update this if I’ll be able to dig up updates and whatnot. I’m still out for a three-day leave. I’ll be back hopefully tomorrow with a post for a book review and a new read. Just keep on leaving comments with the books you’re dying to read. I promise I’ll check it as soon as I get back. Thank Heavens for scheduled post! 😀


Waiting on Wednesday was started by Breaking the Spine and serves to showcase those books that aren’t released yet, but that we’re eagerly awaiting!
