Waiting on Wednesday (25)

Okay, I'm kind of in a hurry, but yes! Here's my WoW (which I almost forgot I had to post. Boo scheduler! -_-)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Kane Richards Must Die by Shanice Williams
Release Date: May 12th 2011
Published by: Lands Atlantic Publishing, LLC
Summary (from Goodreads):

After an unexpected transfer to the States for her senior year, Suranne's new friends give her just one instruction: stay away from Kane Richards. According to everyone, he's a heartless playboy concerned only for himself.
With one glance, it's easy to see why he gets away with it. But things aren't always what they seem- especially when he sets his sights on her and whispers that she's "different."
Despite all the red flags, Suranne considers whether or not his intentions are genuine or if she's simply another name on his list.
In the process, she may just uncover the real Kane Richards. But, when it comes down to it, the real Kane Richards may not want to be found. Filled with raw emotion, Kane Richards Must Die, explores relationships, trust, love, and what can happen when life takes an unexpected turn

Title: Pearl by Jo Knowles
Release Date: July 19th 2011
Published by: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Summary (from Goodreads):

Bean (née Pearl) and Henry, misfits and best friends, have the strangest mothers in town. Henry’s mom Sally never leaves the house. Bean’s mom Lexie, if she is home, is likely nursing a hangover or venting to her friend Claire about Bean’s beloved grandfather Gus, the third member of their sunny household.

Gus’s death unleashes a host of family secrets that brings them all together. And they threaten to change everything—including Bean’s relationship with Henry, her first friend, and who also might turn out to be her first love.

Title: Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay
Release Date: September 13th 2011
Published by: Delacorte Books (Random House Publishing)
Summary (from Stacey's LJ):

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn’t take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But Romeo didn’t anticipate that Juliet would be granted eternity as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light.

For seven hundred years, Juliet has struggled to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent, while Romeo has fought for the dark side, seeking to destroy the human heart. Until now.

Now, Juliet has found her own forbidden love, and Romeo, O Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy their happiness.


Why I'm waiting for Kane Richards Must Die:

Is this similar to the movie John Tucker Must Die? No? Sorry, haven't watched that movie. :) It sounds like a really nice YA novel. Plus I'm curious to know why people think this Kane Richards guy must die. Haha. Aren't you?

Why I'm waiting for Pearl:

I have been waiting for this book for ages! Since I've heard that Jo Knowles is releasing a book, I was so excited. It might seem weird since I haven't read any of her other works, but Pearl is right on target on books I love to read. One of my weaknesses in YA novels? Reading stories about friends who became something more. I sure can relate to it, so I'm pretty excited for this book.

Why I'm waiting for Juliet Immortal:

I jumped out of my seat when I found out about this book from a giveaway hosting her other book, The Locket. Reading books based on Romeo and Juliet is always a delight! I think I have three books w/ stories based on this particular work by Shakespeare. But I sure didn't see this one coming. Pitting Romeo and Juliet against each other as real enemies? And Juliet was killed by Romeo? Okay, I have to read this book, now!


  1. Haven't read any of these, but they all share a common theme: death or killing. Interesting picks this week!
