Hey, this one is on time! It's 10:30pm, it's still Wednesday.
As always, Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
So, this week, we have a couple books that are a bit different from what I normally drool over but still look excellent. First up is:
Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder - To be released in 2010.
I'm Trella. I'm a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I've got one friend, do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? Not like it's all that dangerous - the only neck I risk is my own. Until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution. I should have just said no...
Why I want it: First of all, I love the cover. The blue eyes remind me of this notebook I have that blinks at you when you move it. Second... well, it just sounds really good. Normally I don't read much science fiction, but this sounds like something I'd enjoy.
Summary sorta stolen from Presenting Lenore because I couldn't find a good one anywhere else and I got lazy...
And my second choice this week is:
Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly - To be released in 2010 as well.
(no cover image yet.)
Doctors have pinned 16-year-old Drea Horvath with everything from ADHD to Asperger’s Syndrome. She has an obsession with sound design, a tendency to blurt out whatever she’s thinking, and a problem making friends, but likes to think of this as following her own rhythm in a confusing world.
Drea is hesitant to befriend purple-haired Naomi Quinn, her teenage neighbor with a kamikaze personality. But Naomi is the first person to treat her like she isn’t a world class dork. Then there’s Justin Rocca, the sexy and persistent boy in her film class. If she’s learned anything from her mom, it’s that boys are trouble.
When Drea discovers Naomi’s love for drums and Justin’s piano prodigy status, the three form a trip-hop band and a friendship that will challenge everything Drea thought she knew about herself and the world around her.
Summary from goodreads.
Why I want it: Just two words: purple hair.
Well, that's it for me for this week!
