Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by Jill at Breaking the Spine. And honest, this isn't late because I forgot. Mostly. Mostly it's late because I was out of town all day, and that's a legitimate excuse. *nods*
Okay, onto the book-lusting-after.
First up we have:
Wish Stealers by Tracy Trivas
Pennies stolen years ago from a wishing fountain send Griffin on a life-or-death quest in Tracy Trivas's enchanting debut novel, The Wish Stealers.
(Summary from amazon and I know it sucks but I'm tired and too lazy to go searching for a better one.)
It's pretty. What can I say? Pretty stuff is fun.
I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It by Adam Selzer
Algonquin “Ali” Rhodes, the high school newspaper’s music critic, meets an intriguing singer, Doug, while reviewing a gig. He’s a weird-looking guy—goth, but he seems sincere about it, like maybe he was into it back before it was cool. She introduces herself after the set, asking if he lives in Cornersville, and he replies, in his slow, quiet murmur, “Well, I don’t really live there, exactly. . . .”
When Ali and Doug start dating, Ali is falling so hard she doesn’t notice a few odd signs: he never changes clothes, his head is a funny shape, and he says practically nothing out loud. Finally Marie, the school paper’s fashion editor, points out the obvious: Doug isn’t just a really sincere goth. He’s a zombie. Horrified that her feelings could have allowed her to overlook such a flaw, Ali breaks up with Doug, but learns that zombies are awfully hard to get rid of—at the same time she learns that vampires, a group as tightly-knit as the mafia, don’t think much of music critics who make fun of vampires in reviews. . . .
Now that sound hilarious.
Okay, that's it for me. And it's 10:30pm, it's still Wednesday!
Peace and cookies,
