Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Summary (from Goodreads):

There was something about Ellie... Something dangerous. Charismatic. Broken. Jake looked out for her. Sarah followed her lead. And Jess kept her distance, and kept watch.

Now Ellie's dead, and Jake, Sarah, and Jess are left to pick up the pieces. All they have are 34 clues she left behind. 34 strips of paper hidden in a box beneath her bed. 34 secrets of a brief and painful life.

Jake, Sarah, and Jess all feel responsible for what happened to Ellie, and all three have secrets of their own. As they begin to confront the darkest truths about themselves, they will also find out what Ellie herself had been hiding all along....

Why I'm waiting for 34 Pieces of You:

This book reminds me of a few great books like Thirteen Reasons Why and The Survival Kit, so you can just imagine how much I want to get my hands into this. I've always had a weakness for contemporary YA that deals with the complicated, psychological side of a human being, and 34 Pieces of You sounds like a dark, emotional ride of a story.

Title: Storm (Elemental #1) by Brigid Kemmerer
Release Date: April 24th 2012

Summary (from Goodreads):

Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they have more power than you dream.

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn't want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

The storm is coming . . .

Why I'm waiting for Storm:

Because my friend Brodie over at Eleusinian Mysteries is such a great tease, after reading her review, I know I just had to get my hands on this book. I have to. It's about guys with the power to control the four elements. And judging from the cover they look really hot. So swoon worthy characters with amazing powers? Count me in, please! And, going back to that review, I think Brodie just highlighted all the things I'll love about the book. Really, her spazz filled review isn't helping... :)
