Waiting on Wednesday

I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

What happens when happily ever after…isn’t?

Delilah is a bit of a loner who prefers spending her time in the school library with her head in a book—one book in particular. Between the Lines may be a fairy tale, but it feels real. Prince Oliver is brave, adventurous, and loving. He really speaks to Delilah.

And then one day Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, Oliver is more than a one-dimensional storybook prince. He’s a restless teen who feels trapped by his literary existence and hates that his entire life is predetermined. He’s sure there’s more for him out there in the real world, and Delilah might just be his key to freedom.


Delilah and Oliver work together to attempt to get Oliver out of his book, a challenging task that forces them to examine their perceptions of fate, the world, and their places in it. And as their attraction to each other grows along the way, a romance blossoms that is anything but a fairy tale.


I was actually surprised in myself for wanting to read this one! The books Jodi has written already never really appealed to me. There's no paranormal or fantasy elements going on, except this one has it!! I looooove fairy tales and this one sounds really exciting!! I've always loved the whole theme of fairy tales coming to life! Which, on a sidenote, is why I loved the mini series, The 10th Kingdom that was on in 2000!


TITLE: Between the Lines
AUTHOR: Jodi Picoult
PUBLISHER:
Simon Pulse
GENRE:
YA Fantasy
RELEASE DATE:
June 26, 2012



Try as she might, Evie can’t seem to escape her not-so-normal past. And what was supposed to be a blissfully normal school break is ruined when a massive group of paranormals shows up at her house, claiming that Evie is the only one who can protect them from a mysterious, perilous fate.

The deadly war between the faerie courts looms ever closer. The clock is ticking on the entire paranormal world. And its future rests solely in Evie’s hands.

So much for normal.

With a perfect blend of humor and suspense, Endlessly is everything readers could dream of in a conclusion—and the unexpected twists will keep them guessing until the very last page.


Another series I am excited for! I believe this is the last one too! Can't wait to see how Evie wraps up her story! I loved her character from beginning to end!!

YA Paranormal

    P.S Anyway you can lose the Captcha? I have like, 100 blogs to comment on and sitting around trying to type in the exact right letter is really wasting my time. Captcha isn't even needed...

  4. Awesome pick, Jessica! I read My Sister's Keeper a long time a go and really liked it. It's surprising that Jodi Piccoult choose this new genre, but I'm very interested to read Between the Lines! Endlessly is a great pick too! :)

    Thank you for stopping by my WOW! :)

  5. Yay on the first pick, Nay on the second one. I was in love with Paranormalcy, but book 2 disappointed me real bad and I don't think I'll even look at Endlessly. :(
    BTW, didn't "Between the lines" have a different cover??? Or was that a different book with the same title?

    Anywho, thanks for stopping by my WoW !

  7. TO be honest, I have only read Mercy by Jodi Picoult and I hate it with a ferocity. I might give the author a shit in some years...

    Also, I haven't read the Paranormalcy series yet but I totally intend to dig in!

    Here's my WoW!

  9. I'm usually not a Piccoult fan either, but this one sounds good! The Paranormalcy series is a favorite, and I'm quite excited about this one too. Thanks for checking out my WoW!

  10. I've attempted several Jodi Piccoult books and I just couldn't like them. But this one sounds so far away from her usual stuff that I think I'll give it a try.

    And can't wait for Endlessly!!!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  15. I'm scared to admit that I've never read a Jodi Picoult book in my life. I know, I know, time to change that!
    Thank you for stopping by, Jessica!

  16. Of course I'm dying for Endlessly as well! Evie and Lend are so cute! I'm like you I stay away from Jodi Picoult because her stuff is so depressing and too real. I bought My Sister's Keeper and I have no clue why because I never read it and don't really want to lol I just always hear such amazing thins about her I wanted to give her a try so this might be it. I love the idea of the fairy tale prince coming out of his book. Thanks for visiting My WOW

  27. I can't believe how many people have Between the Lines on their wishlists- I feel terrible that prior to receiving it I hadn't heard of it before! But I think that it is one that you will definitely have to get Jess! It has all of these pictures in it and they are all absolutely gorgeous!
