Waiting on Wednesday (48)

So... I haven't posted enough lately. Or, um, really at all. But I have a good reason. I've been writing. A lot. Like almost 30 thousand words in less than 25 days. Which is an amazing amount for me. But it's kind of been taking up a ton of my time. Plus I keep leaving weekends... but this is my last Thursday working so I'll have more time, and I'm going to schedule a bunch of posts while I'm in the blogging mood, so we'll be good!

Okay, so, Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

No theme this week. At least not one I can figure out, though you guys seem to be good at
making up
interpretating themes where I don't necessarily see them. My first choice is:

Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin - To be released September 7th, 2010

Phoebe finds herself drawn to Mallory, the strange and secretive new kid in school, and the two girls become as close as sisters . . . until Mallory's magnetic older brother, Ryland, shows up during their junior year. Ryland has an immediate, exciting hold on Phoebe, but a dangerous hold, for she begins to question her feelings about her best friend and, worse, about herself. Soon she'll discover the shocking truth about Ryland and Mallory: that these two are visitors from the faerie realm who have come to collect on an age-old debt. Generations ago, the faerie queen promised Pheobe's ancestor five extraordinary sons in exchange for the sacrifice of one ordinary female heir. But in hundreds of years there hasn't been a single ordinary girl in the family, and now the faeries are dying. Could Phoebe be the first ordinary one? Could she save the faeries, or is she special enough to save herself?

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: 1. It's by Nancy Werlin and I've heard great things about her books. 2. Hot older brother. 3. FAERIES. 4. Do I really need another reason?

Next up:

It Started With a Dare by Lindsay Faith Rech - To be released September 13th, 2010

Self-proclaimed nobody CG Silverman sees her move to an upscale new school as her chance to be somebody different. Her devil-may-care attitude attracts the in-clique, and before CG realizes it, a routine game of truth or dare launches her to iconic status. While this rebel image helps secure CG’s newfound popularity, it also propels her through a maze of unprecedented chaos, with each new lie and every dare opening doors that, in most cases, were better off left shut. CG is on a collision course with disaster. Will she be able to keep up the fa├žade? Or will the whole world find out she’s a fraud?

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want it: 1. I love the name CG, that's so cute. 2. I like devil-may-care. 3. The cover is really, really cute.

Okay, so that's it for me for this week! What are you guys waiting on?
Peace and cookies,
Laina
