Waiting on Wednesday (70)

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

This is another guess the theme week!

Karma by Cathy Ostlere - To be released March 31st, 2011

On October 31, 1984, Indira Gandhi is gunned down by two Sikh bodyguards. The murder sparks riots in Delhi and for three days Sikh families are targeted and killed in retribution for the Prime Minister’s death. It is into this chaos that sixteen-year-old Maya and her Sikh father, Amar, arrive from their home in Canada. India’s political instability is the backdrop and catalyst for Maya’s awakening to the world. KARMA is the story of how a young woman, straddling two cultures and enduring personal loss, learns forgiveness, acceptance and love.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I'm not sure if you can see it when the cover is smaller, but it says "a novel in verse", which is always cool. I just think this one sounds really good.

Vicious Little Darlings by Katherine Easer - To be released June 21st, 2010

Sarah Weaver wasn't looking forward to starting at an all-girls school. But that was before she met Maddy. Maddy and her best friend, Agnes, are fun and rich and interesting—and for some reason, they seem to really like Sarah. Before long, Maddy and Agnes have moved Sarah into a big house off campus, where they cook together, buy each other presents, and share each other's secrets. So why does Sarah feel like something's bizarrely wrong? As more and more cracks start to show in Maddy's and Agnes's perfect veneers, Sarah notices some strange and disturbing things: Maddy's compulsive lying, Agnes's obsession with Maddy, and the deterioration of their friendship. And just when Sarah begins to question her own sanity, things turns deadly.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: While not my usual thing, I think it sounds interesting.

Okay, so did you guess the theme?

Peace and cookies,
