Waiting on Wednesday: 01/28/15

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

School for Sidekicks
     Being a hero isn't always what it's cracked up to be in this funny and genuine novel from adult fantasy author Kelly McCullough.
     Evan Quick is a GIANT superhero geek who dreams of one day becoming a superhero himself. Every morning he checks to see if he's developed his powers overnight, and every day there's nothing. No flying, no super strength, no invulnerability—that always hurts to check—no telepathy, no magic. Not even the ability to turn off the alarm clock without smacking the switch.
     But then Evan somehow manages to survive a supervillian's death ray, and is sent to the Academy for Metahuman Operatives. Unfortunately, his new school is not what he expected, and instead of fighting bad guys, Evan finds himself blacklisted, and on the wrong side of the school's director. If Evan ever wants to realize his dream, he must convince his "mentor" Foxman, a semi-retired has-been, to become a real hero once again.

Why I'm Waiting: Comics, villains, and geeks?! This is definitely right up my alley! It has everything I'm interested in! And this cover is definitely an attention grabber! I need to get my hands on this book. It says its an MG, but with the amount of pages Goodreads says it has, it may be more upper MG or YA so it might be even better! I can't wait to see how this book is! 

What are you waiting on this week?
Will you be waiting on this with me?!
