Waiting on Wednesday (76)

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


My Not-So-Still Life by Liz Gallagher - To be released May 10th, 2011

Vanessa is wise beyond her years. She's never really fit in at school, where all the kids act and dress the same. She's an artist who expresses her talent in the wacky colors she dyes her hair, her makeup and clothes. She's working on her biggest art project, and counting the days until she's grown up and can really start living. That adult world seems closer when Vanessa gets her dream job at the art supply store, Palette, where she worships the couple who runs it, Oscar and Maye. And she's drawn to a mysterious guy named James, who leads her into new, sometimes risky situations. Is she ready for this world, or not?

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I like the sound of the MC. (Says the girl with the blue streaks.) I'm also kinda wondering if I could recreate the look on the cover and pull it off.


Die For Me by Amy Plum - To be released May 10th, 2011

DIE FOR ME is the first of three books about Kate, a sixteen-year-old American who moves to Paris after the death of her parents. She finds herself falling for Vincent, who she discovers is not the typical French teenager he appears: he is something else entirely.

DIE FOR ME presents a new supernatural mythology presented in a city where dreams are sometimes the same as reality.

(Summary from goodreads.)


Why I want this: Well, the summary is a bit shorter on this one, but I think it sounds really good. Paris! And the cover is gorgeous.


So what are you guys waiting on?


Peace and cookies,
Laina
