Waiting on Wednesday (91)

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

These covers kind of match... no similar themes, though, really.


All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin - To be released September 27th, 2011

Chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is increasingly scarce, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city’s most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine—going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend. That is until someone in her inner circle ends up poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she’s to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight—at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafiya family.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: The coffee/chocolate part kind of reminds me the In Death books by JD Robb. Wouldn't that just be a cruel, unfair world??

I love the idea of crime boss chocolate ring, though. This one just sounds great.


Audition by Stasia Ward Kehoe - To be released October 13th, 2011

Once you've been chosen,
what step can you take...?

Seventeen-year-old Sara's dream of becoming a star ballerina is challenged when she falls for Remington, an older choreographer. Instead of success onstage, she becomes Rem's muse, which is a future she never considered--and one that threatens to break her heart.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I know a certain couple of people who used to dance who might like this one. *pokes certain people*

Okay, so what are you guys waiting on this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
