Waiting on Wednesday (#88)



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

Lucy’s learned some important lessons from tabloid darling Jayla Heart’s all-too-public blunders: Avoid the spotlight, don’t feed the Internet trolls, and keep your secrets secret. The policy has served Lucy well all through high school, so when her best friend Ellie gets sick before prom and begs her to step in as Cole’s date, she accepts with a smile, silencing about ten different reservations. Like the one where she’d rather stay home shredding online zombies. And the one where she hates playing dress-up. And especially the one where she’s been secretly in love with Cole since the dawn of time.

When Cole surprises her at the after party with a kiss under the stars, it’s everything Lucy has ever dreamed of… and the biggest BFF deal-breaker ever. Despite Cole’s lingering sweetness, Lucy knows they’ll have to ’fess up to Ellie. But before they get the chance, Lucy’s own Facebook profile mysteriously explodes with compromising pics of her and Cole, along with tons of other students’ party indiscretions. Tagged. Liked. And furiously viral.

By Monday morning, Lucy’s been branded a slut, a backstabber, and a narc, mired in a tabloid-worthy scandal just weeks before graduation.

Lucy’s been battling undead masses online long enough to know there’s only one way to survive a disaster of this magnitude: Stand up and fight. Game plan? Uncover and expose the Facebook hacker, win back her best friend’s trust, and graduate with a clean slate.

There’s just one snag—Cole. Turns out Lucy’s not the only one who’s been harboring unrequited love...

Tanja's pick



The Heists were only the beginning.

Gray Weathersby escaped from the primitive town of Claysoot expecting to find answers, but what he discovered shook him to the core: A ruthless dictator with absolute power. An army of young soldiers blinded by lies. And a growing rebellion determined to fight back.

Now Gray has joined a team of rebels on a harsh, icy journey in search of allies who can help them set things right. But in a world built on lies, Gray must constantly question whether any ally—or enemy—is truly what they seem…

  8. You must have liked Taken, Tanja, to be looking forward to Frozen. The covers are quite nice.

    Sarah Ockler really does contemporary well. She's really funny in person, too. I'm looking forward to this one, too, Glass.

    Great choices, ladies! :)

  10. You guys kill me every week with your WoW posts! I always add two more books to the list afterward:) I'm a huge Sarah Ockler fan, so I'm definitely looking forward to Scandal!

    OdgovoriIzbriši
  11. Yes! Both of these are on my list as well to read. Thankfully I got an ARC of #scandal and can't wait to start it!

    I am excited to read Frozen as well, I really liked the first book although I know not everyone did.

  14. #scandal sounds so good and intriguing! I think this is the first time I've ever heard of it, but it has definitely caught my interest. It sounds kind of heartbreaking, and I have a very positive feeling it will shatter my heart into pieces. It sucks when your reputation is compromised due to social media.

    Frozen, I like the cover, but I've never read the first book so I'm not anticipating it :P

  18. I grabbed Scandal as I have heard such great things about Ockler. The second one doesnt' appeal to me. The reviews for the first book were rather lackluster so I am skipping that series.

  20. Ok, so this is like the first time ever that I'm not as excited as you guys. I haven't read Ockler's books before, but I so want to. Nick and I have pretty similar tastes in books and she told me that she didn't like Scandal at all. I'm willing to try someday, but I think I'll start with something else by her. As for Frozen? I have the first book, but haven't read it yet due to all the negative-ish reviews. I do love the covers and the concept though and I hope that you girls will adore the heck out of your picks:)
