It's been awhile since I've posted for Waiting On Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine), but I figured with the holidays coming up, I'd share a
little bit of my wish list with y'all.
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh. Atheneum, August 2010.
Publisher summary (accessed from Amazon): In NEVERMORE, cheerleader Isobel falls for Poe-fan Varen--but will she be able to save him from the madness taking hold of his mind?
I'll be straight with you - I've known Kelly since the 6th grade and we went to middle school and high school together. This is her first book and I'm so excited for her! (Plus, doesn't it sound awesome?)
Numbers by Rachel Ward. Chicken House, February 2010. (That's the US release date; the book was published in 2009 in the UK.)
Publisher summary (accessed from Amazon): Ever since she was child, Jem has kept a secret: Whenever she meets someone new, no matter who, as soon as she looks into their eyes, a number pops into her head. That number is a date: the date they will die. Burdened with such awful awareness, Jem avoids relationships. Until she meets Spider, another outsider, and takes a chance. The two plan a trip to the city. But while waiting to ride the Eye ferris wheel, Jem is terrified to see that all the other tourists in line flash the same number. Today's number. Today's date. Terrorists are going to attack London. Jem's world is about to explode!
This book sounds really suspenseful and I looove the US cover. Thanks to Yan at Books By Their Cover for posting this one on In My Mailbox. I'll definitely be seeking it out!
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. Dial, March 2010.
Publisher summary (accessed from Amazon): Seventeen-year-old Lennie Walker, bookworm and band geek, plays second clarinet and spends her time tucked safely and happily in the shadow of her fiery older sister, Bailey. But when Bailey dies abruptly, Lennie is catapulted to center stage of her own life—and, despite her nonexistent history with boys, suddenly finds herself struggling to balance two. Toby was Bailey’s boyfriend; his grief mirrors Lennie’s own. Joe is the new boy in town, a transplant from Paris whose nearly magical grin is matched only by his musical talent. For Lennie, they’re the sun and the moon; one boy takes her out of her sorrow, the other comforts her in it. But just like their celestial counterparts, they can’t collide without the whole wide world exploding.
