Waiting on Wednesday #15

Waiting On Wednesday hosted by Breaking The Spine

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

Relax, I’m a Ninja by Natalie Whipple

Set For Release On: June 3rd, 2014

Summary From GoodreadsRelax, I'm a Ninja

A Clan of ninjas in San Francisco may sound improbable—but as the son of a ninja master, Tosh Ito knows what lurks in the shadows of his city. Or at least he thought he did.

When a killer with a poisoned blade starts cutting down teens, Tosh enlists Amy Sato—newest ninja recruit and his best friend’s crush—and sets out to uncover the killer’s identity. What they find is ninjutsu more evil than they could have ever imagined.

As Amy and Tosh grow closer, they discover their connection unleashes a legendary power that could stop the murders. Problem is, that power may be exactly what the killer is looking for, and wielding it could cost them both their souls.


I found this one courtesy of one of my favorite book blogging features, Cover Snark over at A Reader of Fictions, and proceeded to have a giggle fit for a few minutes. I don’t know why it is so funny to me, but there it is. However, I would like to read more books that have a combat-focused theme to them, and I think Relax, I’m a Ninja has a lot of potential. Besides, who doesn’t need more good ninja books?

Does Relax, I’m a Ninja appeal to you? Do you find the cover as funny as I do or am I just nutty? What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^

  1. Okay the title alone makes me want to read this. It sounds kind of crazy but I’m really interested in seeing how it turns out.

  2. You know I don’t think I have read a ninja book.. like ever before. I need to remedy this problem! And I agree with Michelle the title alone makes me want to read it. Great pick!

    • There really don’t seem to be that many ninja books out there right now, at least mainstream ones. This should be a lot of fun! 🙂

  4. Hmm.. I’m thinking this could be really great or really bad. Hopefully it will be the former!! I like that the characters don’t seem to be white caucasian teenagers as they usually are. Interesting pick, I’ll add it to my wishlist :))

    Here’s my WoW 🙂

  7. Actually, I find the title funny. Idk why it made me giggle, but it just sounds like something I would jokingly say to a friend! The synopsis sounds intriguing though! I’m definitely going to have to check this one out!! Thanks for sharing!
