Waiting on Wednesday (49)

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

Okay, so first up we have:

Empty by Suzanne Weyn - To be released October 1st, 2010

It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be.

Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.

Teens like Nicki, Tom, and Leila may find what they need to survive. But their lives are never going to be the same again.

(Summary from goodreads.)

I've read a couple of Suzanne's books and really liked them, so I'm excited about this one.

Freefall by Mindi Scott - To be released October 5th, 2010

How do you come back from the point of no return?

Seth McCoy was the last person to see his best friend Isaac alive, and the first to find him dead. It was just another night, just another party, just another time where Isaac drank too much and passed out on the lawn. Only this time, Isaac didn’t wake up.

Convinced that his own actions led to his friend’s death, Seth is torn between turning his life around... or losing himself completely.

Then he meets Rosetta: so beautiful and so different from everything and everyone he's ever known. But Rosetta has secrets of her own, and Seth will soon realize he isn’t the only one who needs saving...

(Summary from goodreads.)

I absolutely love this cover and the summary sounds amazing, so I'm quite excited for this one, too.

Okay, so that's it for this Wednesday.

Peace and cookies,
Laina

(Yes, I'm aware today is Eclipse day. But I don't know if I'll be seeing it in theatre since the one we go to is only showing it 3 times and one of those was at midnight, as in 2 hours ago. So... I'm not acknowledging it so I can be in a nice little state of denial. So please don't torture me, kay?)
