Waiting on Wednesday #41


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 this week:

Thousand Words

Thousand Words

by 
Expected publication: May 21st 2013 
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Ashleigh's boyfriend, Kaleb, is about to leave for college, and Ashleigh is worried that he'll forget about her while he's away. So at a legendary end-of-summer pool party, Ashleigh's friends suggest she text him a picture of herself -- sans swimsuit -- to take with him. Before she can talk herself out of it, Ashleigh strides off to the bathroom, snaps a photo in the full-length mirror, and hits "send." 

But when Kaleb and Ashleigh go through a bad breakup, Kaleb takes revenge by forwarding the text to his baseball team. Soon the photo has gone viral, attracting the attention of the school board, the local police, and the media. As her friends and family try to distance themselves from the scandal, Ashleigh feels completely alone -- until she meets Mack while serving her court-ordered community service. Not only does Mack offer a fresh chance at friendship, but he's the one person in town who received the text of Ashleigh's photo -- and didn't look. 
Acclaimed author Jennifer Brown brings readers a gripping novel about honesty and betrayal, redemption and friendship, attraction and integrity, as Ashleigh finds that while a picture may be worth a thousand words . . . it doesn't always tell the whole story.

If He Had Been With MeIf He Had Been With Me

by 
Released: April 1st 2013 
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire

Sysnopsis via Goodreads:

If he had been with me, he wouldn't have died.

Throughout their whole childhood, Finn and Autumn were inseparable—they finished each other's sentences, they knew just what to say when the other person was hurting. But one incident in middle school puts them in separate social worlds come high school, and Autumn has been happily dating James for the last 2 years. But she's always wondered what if...

The night she's about to get the answer is also one of terrible tragedy

Both have great covers, and great descriptions. I've been enchanted and now I want to learn what's going on in each. 

What are you waiting on?

  15. These both sound AWEsome! I am not sure why the Ashleigh is doing community service when Kaleb is the one who forwarded the picture to his baseball team.

    I love the cover of If He Had Been With Me.

  16. Both of these books sound great! And what did she get community service for? Her boyfriend forwarded it. Crazy.
