We'll start featuring 2013 releases, since I checked our list of books for 2012 and I think almost all of the 600 books in the list has already been featured one way or another.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
Title: Pretty Girl-13 by Liz ColeyWant? Add to your Goodreads shelf!
Release Date: March 19th 2013
Published by: Katherine Tegen Books
Summary (from Goodreads):
Angie Chapman was thirteen years old when she ventured into the woods alone on a Girl Scout camping trip.
Now she’s returned home…only to find that it’s three years later and she’s sixteen—or at least that’s what everyone tells her.
What happened to the last three years of her life?
Angie herself doesn’t know.
But there are people who do—people who could tell Angie every detail of her forgotten time, if only they weren’t locked inside her mind.
With a tremendous amount of courage and support from unexpected friends, Angie embarks on a journey into the darkest corners of her mind. As she unearths more and more about her past, she discovers a terrifying secret and must decide: when you remember things you wish you could forget, do you destroy the people responsible, or is there another way to feel whole again?
Liz Coley’s alarming and fascinating psychological mystery is a disturbing—and ultimately empowering—page turner about accepting our whole selves, and the healing power of courage, hope, and love.
Why I'm waiting for Pretty Girl-13:
Want, want, want! I am ready for some psychological YA mystery. This sounds like the one I've been waiting for, and it comes out next year? What could have happened to Angie during that three year gap in her memories? I have a feeling it's dark and painful.
Title: Premeditated by Josin L. McQueinWant? Add to your Goodreads list!
Release Date: October 2013
Published by: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Summary (from Goodreads):
A week ago, Dinah’s cousin Claire cut her wrists.
Five days ago, Dinah found Claire’s diary and discovered why.
Three days ago, Dinah stopped crying and came up with a plan.
Two days ago, she ditched her piercings and bleached the black dye from her hair.
Yesterday, knee socks and uniform plaid became a predator’s camouflage.
Today, she’ll find the boy who broke Claire.
By tomorrow, he’ll wish he were dead.
Why I'm waiting for Premeditated:
You know how just a few sentences can make one very curious about a book? That's the case with Premeditated. The book doesn't give so much away but I still want to read it. A book about vengeance? Hatred? This sounds like a powerful novel.
So what are you waiting for this week?
