Waiting on Wednesday 04/27/16

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn (July 5, 2016 by DAW)

You can’t just dangle a superhero book in front of my nose without expecting me to bite, especially one that looks this fun. I’m getting vibes that remind me a bit of The Devil Wears Prada meets The Incredibles, and for once it’s nice to look forward to a story about quirky superheroine.

Heroine Complex“Being a superheroine is hard. Working for one is even harder.

Evie Tanaka is the put-upon personal assistant to Aveda Jupiter, her childhood best friend and San Francisco’s most beloved superheroine. She’s great at her job—blending into the background, handling her boss’s epic diva tantrums, and getting demon blood out of leather pants.

Unfortunately, she’s not nearly as together when it comes to running her own life, standing up for herself, or raising her tempestuous teenage sister, Bea.

But everything changes when Evie’s forced to pose as her glamorous boss for one night, and her darkest comes out: she has powers, too. Now it’s up to her to contend with murderous cupcakes, nosy gossip bloggers, and supernatural karaoke battles—all while juggling unexpected romance and Aveda’s increasingly outrageous demands. And when a larger threat emerges, Evie must finally take charge and become a superheroine in her own right… or see her city fall to a full-on demonic invasion.”

  1. I’ve finally caved and registered on goodreads just so I can keep track of the upcoming releases I want to read. I’m excited that there are two fantasy novels featuring Asian-American heroines out this year, the other being Not Your Sidekick (also set in a superhero world, although she apparently doesn’t have powers, according to the blurb). That isn’t out til September, so at least Heroine Complex will be ready to meet my eyeballs a few months sooner! 😀
