"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: Life is But a Dream
Author: Brian James
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends, 234 Pages (March 27th, 2012)
Preorder here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: Alec and Sabrina are crazy in love. Problem is: Sabrina’s really crazy.

Sabrina, an artist, is diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her parents check her into the Wellness Center. There she meets Alec, who is convinced it's the world that's crazy, not the two of them. They are meant to be together; they are special. But when Alec starts to convince Sabrina that her treatment will wipe out everything that makes her creative, she worries that she'll lose hold of her dreams and herself. Should she listen to her doctor? Her decision may have fatal consequences.




Title: Breaking Beautiful
Author: Jennifer Shaw Wolf
Publisher: Walker & Company, 368 Pages (April 24th, 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository


Synopsis: Allie lost everything the night her boyfriend, Trip, died in a horrible car accident—including her memory of the event. As their small town mourns his death, Allie is afraid to remember because doing so means delving into what she’s kept hidden for so long: the horrible reality of their abusive relationship.

When the police reopen the investigation, it casts suspicion on Allie and her best friend, Blake, especially as their budding romance raises eyebrows around town. Allie knows she must tell the truth. Can she reach deep enough to remember that night so she can finally break free? Debut writer Jennifer Shaw Wolf takes readers on an emotional ride through the murky waters of love, shame, and, ultimately, forgiveness.


I seriously can't wait for these two must read books. Well, at least for me they sound like must reads. The first I have here and will be reading soon, I love the synopsis, love the cover. Then second book in this week's WoW sounds like it's going to be a very memorable story, excited for both.

  1. Nice! The first cover reminds me of Erin Kellison's Shadow Man, except you see the woman's back, and it's bare. It's just the way this girl is laying and her colors that make me wonder if they are the same!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

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.
