Waiting on Wednesday – Week 7
HELLOOOOOO WONDERFUL PEOPLE! Yes, I’m still away, but that never diminished my wishlist at all… so without further ado, here’s this week’s special edition of Waiting on Wednesday. Which was the brainchild of Jill @ Breaking the Spine! =)
And obviously, the theme this week is “Gorgeous Covers That I Desperately Need On My Shelf” =D
I liked him first, but it doesn’t matter.
I still like him.
That doesn’t matter either.
Or at least, it’s not supposed to.
Another sweet and funny coming-of-age novel by the author of Bloom; Perfect You; Something, Maybe; and Living Dead Girl.
It’s Elizabeth Scott. ‘Nuff said. (Also, I think this is my favorite E. Scott cover of all time. Didn’t even realize how much I loved the color purple until I saw this! GORGEOUS!)
Jena, Dakota, Skye, and Owen are all at Paradise—the resort in the Caribbean, that is—for different reasons, but in Paradise their lives become tangled together in ways none of them can predict. Over the course of four months, through four voices and four stories, what happened in Paradise will change them all.
In this extraordinary novel, the Printz Honor–winning author brings us her most accomplished work yet. Tangled is a story of the secrets we keep, the risks we take, and the things we do for love.
I heart Carolyn Mackler! And this is definitely pretty covers that I’m swooning over week, so yes. Hi.
When someone leaves three mystery flowers outside her dorm door, Laurel thinks that maybe the Avondale School isn’t so awful after all — until her own body starts to freak out. In the middle of her English presentation on the Victorian Language of Flowers, strange words pop into her head, and her body seems to tingle and hum. Impulsively, Laurel gives the love bouquet she made to demonstrate the language to her spinster English teacher. When that teacher unexpectedly and immediately finds romance, Laurel suspects that something — something magical — is up. With her new friend, Kate, she sets out to discover the origins and breadth of her powers by experimenting on herself and others. But she can’t seem to find any living experts in the field of flower powers to guide her. And her bouquets don’t always do her bidding, especially when it comes to her own crush, Justin. Rumors about Laurel and her flowers fly across campus, and she’s soon besieged by requests from girls — both friends and enemies — who want their lives magically transformed — just in time for prom.
Like I said. Pretty cover! (And secret language of flowers? OMG tell me more now!)
That’s it for this week’s edition. What are YOU waiting for?
