Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Did you guess the theme last week? Pink covers! Yeah, I'm not deep.
No theme this week, but here are the books I'm waiting on:
Flawless by Lara Chapman - To be released May 10th, 2011
Sarah Burke is just about perfect. She's got killer blue eyes, gorgeous blond hair, and impeccable grades. There's just one tiny-all right, enormous-flaw: her nose. But even that's not so bad. Sarah's got the best best friend and big goals for print journalism fame.
On the first day of senior year, Rock Conway walks into her journalism class and, well, rocks her world. Problem is, her best friend, Kristen, falls for him too. And when Rock and Kristen stand together, it's like Barbie and Ken come to life. So when Kristen begs Sarah to help her nab Rock, Sarah does the only thing a best friend can do-she agrees. For someone so smart, what was she thinking?
(Summary from amazon because I didn't love the goodreads one.)
Why I want this: I think it sounds sweet. Maybe not the most life-shattering book ever, but a good read nonetheless. Also, I really like the cover.
Memento Nora by Angie Smibert - To be released April 1st, 2011
Nora, the popular girl and happy consumer, witnesses a horrific bombing on a shopping trip with her mother. In Nora’s near-future world, terrorism is so commonplace that she can pop one little white pill to forget and go on like nothing ever happened. However, when Nora makes her first trip to a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, she learns what her mother, a frequent forgetter, has been frequently forgetting. Nora secretly spits out the pill and holds on to her memories. The memory of the bombing as well as her mother’s secret and her budding awareness of the world outside her little clique make it increasingly difficult for Nora to cope. She turns to two new friends, each with their own reasons to remember, and together they share their experiences with their classmates through an underground comic. They soon learn, though, they can’t get away with remembering.
(Summary from goodreads.)
Why I want this: I love the futuristic thing and this one sounds really, really good. And I love the cover!
Alrighty, that's everything.
Peace and cookies,
