Waiting on Wednesday (76)

I'm on a reading slump. There, I said it. It doesn't help that I'm on a deadline and I've already missed reading books/reviewing for 5 books that have been released this past two weeks. Help?

Anyway, here are the books we are waiting for this week!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: No Safety In Numbers by Dayna Lorentz
Release Date: May 29th 2012
Published by: Dial

Summary (from Goodreads):

Life As We Knew It meets Lord of the Flies in a mall that looks just like yours

A biological bomb has just been discovered in the air ducts of a busy suburban mall. At first nobody knows if it's even life threatening, but then the entire complex is quarantined, people start getting sick, supplies start running low, and there's no way out. Among the hundreds of trapped shoppers are four teens.
These four different narrators, each with their own stories, must cope in unique, surprising styles, changing in ways they wouldn't have predicted, trying to find solace, safety, and escape at a time when the adults are behaving badly.
This is a gripping look at people and how they can—and must—change under the most dire of circumstances.
And not always for the better.

Why I'm waiting for No Safety In Numbers:

This is probably the only thing I do not want to happen when I go to the mall. It reminds me of that one Warehouse 13 episode when they were trapped inside the store and people just started dying. No Safety In Numbers just sounds scary. Multiple POVs are always tricky to write, and I hope it works in this novel! And if it's anything close to Life As We Knew It and Lord of the Flies, then I'm sure it will be good.

Title: Lost Girls by Ann Kelley
Release Date: July 10th 2012
Published by: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Summary (from Goodreads):

No parents. No rules. No way home.
Fourteen-year-old Bonnie MacDonald couldn't be more excited for a camping trip on an island off the coast of Thailand with her fellow Amelia Earhart Cadets-the daughters of the men and women stationed there during the Vietnam War. But when a strong current deposits the girls on what their boatman calls the "forbidden island," things take a turn for the worse: A powerful storm comes to destroy their campsite, the smallest of the junior cadets is found dead, and their boatman never returns. What once seemed like a vacation in paradise has become a battle against the elements.
Peppered with short, frantic entries from Bonnie's journal, Lost Girls is a page-turning, heart-pounding adventure story about a group of teen girls fighting for their lives.

Why I'm waiting for Lost Girls:

Okay, now this book sounds more like Lord of the Flies, but with girls. How scary can it be for a fourteen year old girl, let alone a bunch of them to be trapped in an island during a storm? Is there some reason why they were left in the Forbidden Island? And why is it called like that? I can only imagine how heart pounding the story will be. I'm terribly excited for this book! And it comes out on my birthday too.


So what are your WoW picks for this week? Share them please!


  1. Aww, don't worry about the reading slump. Soon you'll be wanting to read again. Maybe start with a book that you're dying to read and ignore these review books at the moment. Too much pressure probably won't make you want to read again.

    I haven't heard of either book before, but they definitely sound awesome. Thanks for sharing! :)
