Waiting on Wednesday #28: Alienated

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

My pick for this week's WoW is...

Alienated by Melissa Landers

Title: Alienated (Alienated #1)
Author: Melissa Landers
Release date: February 4th 2014
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction

Two 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.

I know this book is coming out in 2014 (SO FAR AWAY) but I'm already so excited for it! The cover is absolutely beautiful, and umm a book about aliens? Yes, please :)
After reading Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, I'm totally on the alien bandwagon. So yeah, I'm very eagerly anticipating this one.

UPDATE: Through some huge coincidence, I just received an ARC of Alienated in the mail today! I requested it about a week ago and was so surprised to find it in the mail today. Gonna start it this month :D 

What are you guys waiting on this week? Leave a comment and I'll visit you!
