Waiting on Wednesday: 3 for 1!

Waiting on Wendnesday is hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a weekly event all about upcoming release we can't wait to get into!
This week I have 3 WoW books, 3 books that I MUST have!I am so excited...I'm doing my best not to squeal as I type. I cant wait for them to be released though I have to wait a month or 2. Le me know what you think?
Other by Karen Kincy. This book just screams 'READ ME!' It's a supernatural YA book, jam packed with elements of action, romance and drama.
From Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves.
When a pack of werewolves chooses the national forest behind Gwen’s home as their new territory, the tensions in Klikamuks escalate-into murder. It soon becomes clear a serial killer is methodically slaying Others. The police turn a blind eye, leaving Gwen to find the killer before the killer finds her. As she hunts for clues, she uncovers more Others living nearby than she ever expected. Like Tavian, a sexy Japanese fox-spirit who rivals Zack and challenges her to embrace her Otherness. Gwen must struggle with her own conflicted identity, learn who she can trust, and-most importantly-stay alive.
Next Up is Wind Warrior by Cynhtia Roberts. This is a historical fiction book. I lurve learning about different cultures my favourites being Caribbean, Native American, Hawaiian and Japanese. This is book is centred around Native American culture.

From Goodreads:
Leslie Michaels is a visionary, and only those close to her know of her special gift and the visions that come when her mind and body surrender to sleep. Fate has a way of righting many wrongs, and for Leslie it is a destiny that changes her life dramatically. But not before she is forced to flee into the wilderness to escape a murderous trapper bent on claiming her for his very own. Faith and a strong will to survive are her only companions, until she encounters Winnokin, the handsome Seneca war chief who first came to her in her dreams. Not only does he prove to be her rescuer and protector, he teaches her that tragedy can breed happiness and the passion to live and love deeply once again.
Lastly is Love Find You in Lahaina, Hawaii by Bodie Thoene. Set in Hawaii...I secretly want to live there...well not secretly...I WANT TO MOVE THERE! I love Hawaiian culture and I would love to read this book! It's another HF novel.
From Goodreads:

In 1890, Lahaina is in the midst of unrest. Kaiulani, Crown Princess of the Kingdom of Hawaii, has recently become known throughout the world for her intelligence, beauty and determination to restore her nations monarchy. When a Scottish missionary lands on the shores of Lahaina, he finds himself drawn into a revolt by those desirous of annexing the islands to the United States. Will he underestimate Kaiulani, the barbarian princess or can they work together to restore peace to this normally tranquil paradise?
