Waiting On Wednesday: Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme is a chance to share upcoming books that you're most excited about.

You're probably looking at the cover of Pushing the Limits and wondering what I'm thinking. Yes, Pushing the limits has already been released, but I'm waiting on Breaking the Rules which was just announced as a new book continuing the story of Noah and Echo.

In BREAKING THE RULES, Katie McGarry continues the story of Echo Emerson and Noah Hutchinson (PUSHING THE LIMITS) as the pair set out on a road trip so Echo can chase her dream of becoming an artist and for Noah to meet his remaining blood relatives, but as the realities of the world outside the walls of high school begin to press down on Echo and Noah the couple tries to discover if their love is strong enough to survive.

BREAKING THE RULES is a full length novel that starts a month or so into the trip Echo and Noah take after they graduated from high school. The time period of this book is between PUSHING THE LIMITS and DARE YOU TO. 

BREAKING THE RULES will be released through Harlequin Teen in paperback and e-book formats on December 30, 2014 in North America. It will also be available in the United Kingdom and Australia around the same time period.
What’s even more exciting? There will be a brief teaser of BREAKING THE RULES in the back of TAKE ME ON (release date: May 27, 2014)!

Why I'm Waiting...

I love Katie McGarry books! Pushing the Limits was the first of her books I had read, and I loved Noah and Echo so I'm very excited to get another whole book about the two of them and see where there at. Plus, it's Katie McGarry - which pretty much means it's bound to be excellent. This will also be her third publication in 2014! It totally makes it a Katie McGarry reading year, and with the releases staggered (Red At Night on April 1st, Take Me On in May, and now Breaking the Rules in December) it means much more time to enjoy and not pine for new books. (Especially since I'm hoping the next PTL book will be an Abby book released in 2015!!)
