Waiting on Wednesday 54

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

Okay, so there isn't a theme this week, but I think we could sort of call this a reading list, maybe.

So you start with:

The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen - To be released January 11th, 2011

Jessica thinks her life is over when she loses a leg in a car accident. She's not comforted by the news that she'll be able to walk with the help of a prosthetic leg. Who cares about walking when you live to run?As she struggles to cope with crutches and a first cyborg-like prosthetic, Jessica feels oddly both in the spotlight and invisible. People who don't know what to say, act like she's not there. Which she could handle better if she weren't now keenly aware that she'd done the same thing herself to a girl with CP named Rosa. A girl who is going to tutor her through all the math she's missed. A girl who sees right into the heart of her.With the support of family, friends, a coach, and her track teammates, Jessica may actually be able to run again. But that's not enough for her now. She doesn't just want to cross finish lines herself—she wants to take Rosa with her.

(Summary from goodreads.)

I absolutely loved Flipped (did you hear about the movie made from it?).

So after you've cried your eyes out over that book, you can read:

Choker by Elizabeth Woods - To be released January 4th, 2011

You can never be sure who you can trust, even your best friend. A new thriller!

(Summary from goodreads.)

Okay, so that summary sucks, but I can't seem to find more information on it. Or the author. Guess I'll have to wait a while until it's closer to the release date. 2011 seems sooooo far away!

But, anyways, after a cry-your-eyes-out book, a thriller might be nice, right? And the cover is really neat. Very pink (not my colour) but still really cool.

So how's that for a reading list/theme thing? I think it works quite well. :)

Peace and cookies,
Laina
