Waiting on Wednesday (104)

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


Miracle by Elizabeth Scott - To be released June 5th, 2012

I sat there and wondered again why I'd lived…

Megan is a miracle. At least, that’s what everyone says. Having survived a plane crash that killed everyone else on board, Megan knows she should be grateful just to be alive. The truth is, she doesn’t feel like a miracle. In fact, she doesn’t feel anything at all.

Then memories from the crash start coming back. Scared and alone, Megan doesn’t know who to turn to. Her entire community
seems unable—or maybe unwilling—to see her as anything but Miracle Megan. Except for Joe, the beautiful boy next door with a tragic past and secrets of his own.

All Megan wants is for her life to get back to normal, but the harder she tries to live up to everyone’s expectations, the worse she feels. This time, she may be falling too fast to be saved…

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want to read this: I *cough* haven't read any of Elizabeth Scott's books. I know. *is shunned by all* But holy heck, Batman, this sounds beautiful and heartbreaking and like it would make me cry and I would really, really like to read it.


All These Lives by Sarah Wylie - To be released June 5th, 2012

Sixteen-year-old Dani is convinced she has nine lives. As a child she twice walked away from situations where she should have died. But Dani’s twin, Jena, isn’t so lucky. She has cancer and might not even be able to keep her one life. Dani’s father is in denial. Her mother is trying to hold it together and prove everything’s normal. And Jena is wasting away.

To cope, Dani sets out to rid herself of all her extra lives. Maybe they’ll be released into the universe and someone who wants to live more than she does will get one. Someone like Jena. But just when Dani finds herself at the breaking point, she’s faced with a startling realization. Maybe she doesn’t have nine lives after all. Maybe she really only ever had one.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: *sniffle sniffle* This one is going to make me cry, too, I just know it. Why do people write such sad books?!?!?

(If you guys had read any of my WIPs, you'd know what a hypocritical thing this would be for me to say, lol.)

What do you guys think? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
