Waiting on Wednesday (108)

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


Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfield - To be released July 5th, 2012

On the night of Becca’s high school graduation, the discovery of an unidentified dead girl left to bleed out on the side of a dirt road sends the town—and Becca—into a tailspin. Becca has always longed to break free from her small home town, but as the violence of the outside world creeps into her backyard, she withdraws and retreats inward, paralyzed for the first time in her life.

Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson’s life are intercut with Becca’s own coming-of-age summer, unfolding into the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and tense romantic relationships as the summer’s tumultuous events twist Becca closer and closer to the truth about Amelia’s murder.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I think we all know by now how I feel about mysteries. Plus romance, yay!

Next up we have:


Survive by Alex Morel - To be released August 2nd, 2012

Jane runs away from Life House, a facility for kids with mental health disorders and addictions. She boards a plane to Montclair, New Jersey, though her destination does not matter—she doesn’t plan to be alive when the plane lands. Jane has planned the perfect suicide: she’ll fall asleep on the plane and never wake up. As she’s reaching for her pills in the cabin’s bathroom, the plane hits turbulence. Another jolt, and the engine’s down. The plane crashes into the mountains of Montana, and Jane and a boy named Paul are the only two survivors.

What starts out as a death mission quickly becomes a fight for life.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I actually just read a book where the characters were in a plane crash and stranded in the mountains. It was really, really good and this one sounds just as exciting. I can't wait to read it.

So what are you guys waiting on this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
