"Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose of this weekly event is to spotlight a soon-to-be-released book that you are very much anticipating. "Waiting On" Wednesday will also give bloggers an opportunity to share ideas for our TBR lists.


Title: Starstruck
Author: Cyn Balog
Publisher: Delacorte Press (2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: When Gwendolyn “Dough” Reilly’s boyfriend and best friend Wish moves away in seventh grade, the only consolation she can find is in her family bakery’s donuts. Now, it’s sophomore year, and Wish is coming back. But in only three years, they’ve both changed—drastically. She’s seriously overweight, and suddenly Wish is the most popular guy in school, and girls everywhere want him. Dough has doubts that appearances don’t matter and that Wish can love her as she is, so she launches into a plan designed to keep them together. That is, until she discovers that Wish’s gorgeous looks and charm might not be all they appear to be.



Title: Choker
Author: Elizabeth Woods
Publisher: Simon & Schuster, 352 Pages (January 4th 2011)

Title: Darkness Becomes Her
Author: Kelly Keaton
Publisher: Simon Pulse, 288 Pages (February 22nd 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

Three very different books again this week. From pretty covers, to dark covers, this WoW has it all. And yes, I am excited and eager to read all three - And the 2011 books just keep on coming!

  2. I definitely want to read Darkness Becomes Her because it takes place in NOLA (even a futuristic one).

  3. Oh I can't wait for Darkness Becomes Her either! The cover is dark and eerie and totally has me intrigued! That will likely be one of my WoWs as it gets closer!

    Here's my WoW for this week though

  4. Thanks for sharing these great titles. Choker looks intriguing - I'll have to check that one out. You might also enjoy a new historical fiction book out called, Blood, Money, Power by Michele Marie Tate. I just finished it and really got involved in the story, which focuses on three generations of a family starting in 1920. The family is involved in politics, wealth and greed that eventually leads to murder.

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.
