Waiting on Wednesday (19)


Woops, I changed the greeting from the usual "Hello everyone, how are you all lovely beings of this earth?" to something I'm not sure all of you can understand. Anyway, it's pretty much the same, except its in Japanese. Okay, that was lame, sorry.

So for our Waiting on Wednesday post, we are highlighting three novels! I figured featuring four books again is a bit over the top, so we have three this week. Three awesome books!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Waterfall (River of Time #1) by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Release Date: February 1st 2011
Published by: Cook, David C.

In Waterfall, American teenager Gabi Betarrini accidently finds herself in sixteenth-century Italy . . . Knights. Swords. Horses. Armor. And Italian hotties. Most American teens want an Italian vacation, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds... until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the sixteenth-century—and in the middle of a fierce battle between knights bent on killing one another.

Title: The Little Women (and Me) by Lauren Baratz-Logsted
Release Date: August 16th 2011
Published by: Bloomsbury USA Children's Books

A twist in time gives Emily the power to fix Little Women. Oh, where to begin!

Emily is sick and tired of being a middle sister. So when she gets an assignment to describe what she'd change about a classic novel, Emily pounces on Little Women. After all, if she can't change things in her own family, maybe she can bring a little justice to the March sisters. (Kill off Beth? Have cute Laurie wind up with Amy instead of Jo? What was Louisa May Alcott thinking?!) But when Emily gets mysteriously transported into the 1850s world of the book, she discovers that righting fictional wrongs won't be easy. And after being immersed in a time and place so different from her own, it may be Emily—not the four March sisters—who undergoes the most surprising change of all. Lauren Baratz-Logsted's winning confection will appeal to fans of Little Women as well as anyone who enjoys a modern twist on an old favorite.

Title: Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott
Release Date: May 24th 2011
Published by: Simon Pulse

Abby accepted that she can’t measure up to her beautiful, magnetic sister Tess a long time ago, and knows exactly what she is: Second best. Invisible.

Until the accident.

Now Tess is in a coma, and Abby’s life is on hold. It may have been hard living with Tess, but it's nothing compared to living without her.

She's got a plan to bring Tess back though, involving the gorgeous and mysterious Eli, but then Abby learns something about Tess, something that was always there, but that she’d never seen.

Abby is about to find out that truth isn't always what you think it is, and that life holds more than she ever thought it could.

Why I'm waiting for Waterfall: 2 words. Italian. Hotties. Well, no, not really. Knights! I think this is the first book I've come across where the central figures in the story are knights, so my interest is definitely piqued!

Why I'm waiting for The Little Women (and me): Why? Because I love Little Women! I grew up watching the cartoon version of the story and I absolutely love it. There were a couple of manhwa/mangas written based on the story and I love them all. I love the March sisters, and I always love reading The Little Women, very curious to see how Lauren will bring a different twist to a classic.

Why I'm waiting for Between Here and Forever: I've read a couple of Elizabeth's Scott's books (Perfect You, The Unwritten Rule and Something, Maybe) , mostly when I was still starting with the YA genre, and I like them. I'm so excited for this! Like I've said countless of times before, I love stories about sisters. :)

  12. The Storm Before Atlanta
    By Karen Schwabach
    Publication date: December 28, 2010

    At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.

  13. Great picks! I like how you add why you are interested in them! Good idea :) I also like your butterfly review rating! Here's my WoW. I'm a new follower.
