Waiting on Wednesday #66: Pointe, Oblivion & Pieces of Me


 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spines. This is a cool way to spotlight a upcoming release that you're anxious about, as well as checking out what other book lovers are anticipating as well. So, check out my WoW for this week:

PointePointe
by Brandy Colbert
Release date: April 10th 2014
Publisher: Penguin

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Theo is better now.

She's eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns home after spending four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction—and his abductor.

Donovan isn't talking about what happened, and even though Theo knows she didn't do anything wrong, telling the truth would put everything she's been living for at risk. But keeping quiet might be worse.




OblivionOblivion
by Sasha Dawn
Release date: May 27th 2014
Publisher: EgmontUSA

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Lisa McMann's Dead to You meets Kate Ellison's The Butterfly Clues in a psychological thriller full of romance, intrigue, and mystery. 

Two years ago, Callie was found in an abandoned apartment, scrawling words on the wall: "I KILLED HIM. His blood is on my hands. His heart is in my soul. I KILLED HIM." But she remembers nothing of that night or of the three previous days. All she knows is that her father, the reverend at the Church of the Holy Promise, is missing, as is Hannah, a young girl from the parish. Their disappearances have to be connected and Callie knows that her father was not a righteous man.

But the more she remembers, the closer she comes to the horrifying truth. And when a good looking guy in school helps her to remember what she's buried for so long, she might wish she never dug up the past.


Pieces of MePieces of Me
by Amber Kizer
Release date: February 11th 2014
Publisher: Delacorte Press

Synopsis via Goodreads:

When high school oddball and introvert Jessica Chai is killed in a car accident, her parents decide that Jessica would have wanted her organs donated to those who so desperately need these gifts of life. But Jessica is angry about dying and being dismembered. 
Taking the idea of cell memory to the next level, not only do the recipients get pieces of Jessica, but gets pieces of their memories and lives moving forward—she knows what they know and keeps tabs on their growth, recovery, and development. This begins her journey to learn her purpose as she begins to grasp that her ties to these teenagers goes beyond random weirdness. 

It's through their lives that Jessica learns about herself, as she watches the lives she literally touched continue to interlock.




Why I'm Waiting


I love the covers. Those appealed to me before I even decided to read their descriptions and as good as they sound, I hope the stories are equally as intriguing as the effort placed in the artwork. I know that's silly because covers can be misleading but my fingers are crossed :)

What are you waiting for?
