Waiting on Wednesday #90: Skandal

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...

Skandal by Lindsay Smith

Title: Skandal (Sekret #2)
Author: Lindsay Smith

Release date: April 7th 2015
Publisher: Roaring Book Press
Genre: Young Adult Historical Fiction/Paranormal

The dramatic sequel to Sekret, this psychic Cold War espionage thriller follows Yulia to Washington, DC, where she fights to discover the truth about her family without losing control of her mind.

My mind is mine alone.

Life in Washington, D.C., is not the safe haven Yulia hoped for when she risked everything to flee communist Russia. Her father is reckless and aloof, and Valentin is distant and haunted by his past. Her mother is being targeted by the CIA and the US government is suspicious of Yulia's allegiance. And when super-psychics start turning up in the US capitol, it seems that even Rostov is still a threat. Ultimately, Yulia must keep control of her own mind to save the people she loves and avoid an international Skandal.

This is definitely one of my most anticipated 2015 releases. Sekret was a book that really stood apart from most YA books, and I loved that. I also love Russian/Cold War history, so that's a big part of the reason I love this premise so much. And add in espionage with paranormal abilities? It's amazing! I know this one's going to blow my mind for sure.


  1. What a cool cover and I hope you love it! I hope to see you around my blog


  2. Yay :D Hope you will love this one sweetie. <3 I had issues with book one, so I don't think I'll read this one. But fingers crossed for you :D

  3. I'll admit, I wasn't a gigantic fan of Sekret, but I'm still curious about the sequel! There are so few Russian/Cold War books. Good pick! WoW

  4. Ah! I have this one! I liked Sekret, so I'm pretty excited about this book as well. It might be on NetGalley? I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fabulous week :)
