Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at
Breaking the Spine. It's a weekly meme to post about books that you can't wait to come out in book stores.


Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.

With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. A
nd when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

Alright, besides having an amazing cover, the synopsis is fantastic! Who wouldn't want to read this book?! I really can't wait for this book to come out.


Love The One You're With (Gossip Girl: The Carlyles Series #4) by Cecily von Ziegesar

It's Thanksgiving, and the Carlyle triplets are thankful to be escaping the New York City cold...Hello, Caribbean vacay! A, B, and O could use some relaxed fun in the sun. But when a surprise announcement changes everything, their poolside siestas turn into all-night fiestas faster than a New York minute...

I really love the Gossip Girl series and I can't wait for the fourth book to come out this October!! I also can't wait for Hush, Hush but Briana already picked it.


After by Amy Efaw

An infant left in the trash to die. A teenage mother who never knew she was pregnant . . .

Before That Morning, these were the words most often used to describe straight-A student and star soccer player Devon Davenport: responsible, hardworking, mature. But all that changes when the police find Devon home sick from school as they investigate the case of an abandoned baby. Soon the connection is made—Devon has just given birth; the baby in the trash is hers. After That Morning, there’s only one way to define Devon: attempted murderer.

And yet gifted author Amy Efaw does the impossible— she turns Devon into an empathetic character, a girl who was in such deep denial that she refused to believe she was pregnant. Through airtight writing and fast-paced, gripping storytelling, Ms. Efaw takes the reader on Devon’s unforgettable journey toward clarity, acceptance, and redemption.

This book sounds very interesting and kind of sick in a way, since she does leave her baby in a dumpster, but the cover caught my eye and I think its pretty cool. Although this book does sound disturbing, I am curious so see how it ends.


  1. Hmmm Good choice! I love the cover also, but its competing with Fallen!

  2. Great choice, Briana! I just read this last week and it is AWESOME. I'm already chomping at the bit to read book 2 and book 1 isn't even on shelves yet. :-)

  3. yahoooo, me too. the cover makes one want to stand underneath and catch the falling angel.

  4. I think everyone wants this book! It just looks so good. Great pick. :)

  5. Hush, Hush looks really good (and I've seen people saying that it's a great read). I haven't read any of the Gossip Girl series, but I will admit that I love the show

  6. Glad you're excited for Hush, Hush, Briana!


Don't be shy! We love to hear from you!
