Waiting On Wednesday #5: Gravity

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by BreakingTheSpine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Book Stats:
Gravity by Melissa West
(Book #1 of The Taking)
Pages: 400; Paperback
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Expected Publication Date: 10/16/12
Reading Level: Young Adult
Genre: Fantasy, Sci-fi, Mystery, Romance
Goodreads Summary: In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek. Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed--arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die. Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know--especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.
Why I'm anticipating it?
Usually, aliens would throw me off but I've been watching Falling Skies for some time lately and well... I guess you could say it started the whole alien phase for me. So a little dystopian, mystery and romance... how can a girl resist right?

What book titles are you guys impatiently waiting for?
