First I want to thank all of your support for my new blog! It's been a crazy addition, but I'm totally enjoying myself in this new world! From a great recommendation from Jessi, who has a wonderful blog at Reading in the Corner (crazily enough, I met her in person at a Lauren Oliver event at a local library because we were just sitting next to each other randomly), I decided to join the Waiting on Wednesday list.
This blog focuses on which book we are most eagerly anticipating. I have a lot of books I'm waiting on, but there is one that I'm really excited about:
Hardcover, 288 pages
Expected publication: August 28th 2012 by Simon Pulse
Description from Goodreads: A powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception.
Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.
Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.
The reason I'm excited about this one, is that it's gotten rave reviews from ARCs (advanced reader copies) given to people prior to publication. And also, it was given a high five from my current favorite YA author, Lauren Oliver.
There are a lot of other picks I'm looking forward to that are further out, so stay posted next week for my next pick!
