Waiting on Wednesday (114)

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


Silver by Talia Vance - To be released September 8th, 2012

Beauty is pointless when no one's looking.

Brianna Paxton has been invisible to guys since the eighth grade. She’s pretty enough, it’s just that no one bothers to look. There’s almost nothing that can’t be explained with science, and Brianna has a theory: she’s missing the pheromone that attracts people to one another. Brianna’s theory is shot to hell in one frozen, silver moment, when time stops and Blake Williams not only sees her, he recognizes something inside her that she’s been hiding from even herself.

Before Brianna fully understands who and what she is, she accidentally binds her soul to Blake. Forced to find a way to reconcile forbidden love and her bloody heritage, Brianna discovers that there's nothing pointless about her, and Blake may be in the most danger of all.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want to read this: I think it sounds different. And different is awesome. I like reading a book summary and thinking that I haven't read anything that sounds like it before.

Ten by Gretchen McNeil - To be released September 18th, 2012

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off the from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want to read this: Once upon a time, I was a very odd child who read way too many RL Stine and Christopher Pike books. People were ALWAYS dying in those or about to be killed or being threatened by lunatics. This warped me in ways most of you will never know and thus, I have a feeling this book will be exactly my cup of tea.

So what are you guys waiting on this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
