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.




Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?


Loooove Jennifer's books! This sounds like a really good thriller and I love thrilling type reads! I put a request in at Netgalley back in December with still no response. I swear these websites were designed to drive me crazy with the waiting! As if waiting for the book release itself wasn't enough!

TITLE: Don't Look Back
AUTHOR: Jennifer L. Armentrout

PUBLISHER: Disney-Hyperion
GENRE: Thriller YA
RELEASE DATE: April 15, 2014



 A flash of white light . . . and then . . . nothing.

When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day.

Everything else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men.

Confused and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?


And speaking of thrillers...I LOVED Kimberly Derting's Body Finder series and am sooo eager to read her newest series! Sadly, I was repeatedly denied for it on Edelweiss, so it looks like I'm waiting til April to get a copy!

  2. This is the second time I'm seeing JLA's book. I really hope you enjoy that one once you get to it. The Taking sounds really interesting and I love the blue -ness of the cover- so pretty!

    Here's what I'm waiting on if you'd like to stop by and take a look. Happy waiting and happy reading!

  4. Both sound really good, and I'm tempted to try them. The Taking sounds really intriguing in particular. Thrillers aren't usually my thing (mostly because I am a scary-cat ha) but these both sound great. Thanks for sharing!
