Waiting on Wednesday (103)

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

What She Left Behind by Tracy Bilen - To be released May 1st, 2012

“Don’t even think of leaving…I will find you,” he whispered. “Guaranteed.”

Sara and her mom have a plan to finally escape Sara’s abusive father. But when her mom doesn’t show up as expected, Sara’s terrified. Her father says that she’s on a business trip, but Sara knows he’s lying. Her mom is missing—and her dad had something to do with it. Each day that passes, Sara’s more on edge. Her friends know that something’s wrong, but she won’t endanger anyone else with her secret. And with her dad growing increasingly violent, Sara must figure out what happened to her mom before it’s too late…for them both.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want to read this: It sounds really, really good. I have no better word for that, other than the feeling of, "This is a book I will enjoy." Also, look at that cover. Not just the beautiful picture and lighting and colours, but the font. I love how they have it arranged to kinda be hugging the trees and her name is in the corner and it's so pretty. Love it.

Enchanted by Alethea Kontis - To be released May 8th, 2012

It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.
When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past—and hers?

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I absolutely adore fairy tale adaptations and this one sounds amazing.

So what are you guys waiting on this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
