Waiting on Wednesday (#80)



You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Glass' pick


For sixteen years, Daisy has been good. A good daughter, helping out with her autistic younger brother uncomplainingly. A good friend, even when her best friend makes her feel like a third wheel. When her parents announce they’re sending her brother to an institution—without consulting her—Daisy’s furious, and decides the best way to be a good sister is to start being bad. She quits jazz band and orchestra, slacks in school, and falls for bad-boy Dave.

But one person won’t let Daisy forget who she used to be: Irish exchange student and brilliant musician Cal. Does she want the bad boy or the prodigy? Should she side with her parents or protect her brother? How can she know when to hold on and when—and how—to let go?

Tanja's pick

It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more; though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher. She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was; lovely and amazing and deeply flawed; can she begin to discover her own path.

  2. Oh, I'm really curious about Love letter to the dead. I was a bit skeptical about it, so I didn't requested the arc, but I can't wait for it to be out. Great picks!

  3. I've been seeing The Sound of Letting Go around quite a bit but I'm not sure if it is one I'll read. Love Letters to the Dead is a book I might read even if its not in a genre I particularly care for. I hope you both enjoy your picks though. My WoW

  4. I cannot WAIT for The Sound of Letting Go! It sounds amazing and I've heard really good things about it from early reviewers. Love Letters to the Dead is an ARC I have but I'm not sure it's exactly for me, though I'm curious to see what you think of it. Great picks, ladies!(:

  7. You guys both picked such fabulous books this week! I'm equally excited for both of these, though I might pick the Sound of Letting Go up first just because that cover is so gorgeous! I'm shallow like that ;-)

  15. Letters to the Dead is one book I do not want to miss. That book is screaming READ ME in my ears. Lovely pick there, Tanja! And as always, Glass' pick looks great too.
