Title: Anything But Ordinary by Lara AveryWant? Add to your Goodreads shelf!
Release Date: September 11th 2012
Published by: Hyperion Book CH
Summary (from Goodreads):
An inspiring, bittersweet love story about making every day count.
Bryce remembers it like it was yesterday. The scent of chlorine. The blinding crack and flash of pain. Blood in the water.
When she wakes up in the hospital, all Bryce can think of is her disastrous Olympic diving trial. But everything is different now. Bryce still feels seventeen, so how can her little sister be seventeen, too? Life went on without her while Bryce lay in a coma for five years. Her best friend and boyfriend have just graduated from college. Her parents barely speak. And everything she once dreamed of doing—winning a gold medal, traveling the world, falling in love—seems beyond her reach.
But Bryce has changed too, in seemingly impossible ways. She knows things she shouldn’t. Things that happened while she was asleep. Things that haven’t even happened yet. During one luminous summer, as she comes to understand that her dreams have changed forever, Bryce learns to see life for what it truly is: extraordinary.
Why I'm waiting for Anything But Ordinary:
I love how the book cover looks (aside from being an underwater shot), I love all the blurriness on some places, it kind of relates well with the "blurred" times on Bryce's life when she was in a coma. And I love how this sounds so much like a contemporary, but it also gives out that mysterious, maybe a bit paranormal vibe. It reminds me a little bit of Lucid. And who doesn't love that first one-liner?
Title: The Sweetest Dark by Shana AbéWant? Add to your Goodreads list!
Release Date: August 21st 2012
Published by: Random House Publishing Group
Summary (from Goodreads):
Chosen to be a charity student at a boarding school in World War I England, sixteen-year-old Lora discovers her long, latent magical powers just in time to battle an evil bent on decimating the school.
Why I'm waiting for The Sweetest Dark:
I'm a big fan of Shana's Drakon series! (Loved The Smoke Thief!) So I was surprised when I found out she's releasing a YA novel. The summary reminds me a little bit of CJ Daugherty's Night School but with a historical twist. It also makes me wonder what Lora's latent powers are. And oh, another gorgeous cover.. I love how the smoke merges with her body...
So what are your WoW features this week? Share your links please! Would love to find new books to add to my list!
