Waiting on Wednesday {11}

1.18.2012
"Waiting on Wednesday " is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by Balzer + Bray
(GUYS. IT COMES OUT A FEW DAYS AFTER MY BIRTHDAY. I want to say I'll be able to buy it with birthday money, but let's face it, I won't be getting any.)

Two days before the start of her junior year, seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killed—as in blinding light, scenes of her life flashing before her, and then nothing. Except the next thing she knows, she’s opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school whom Janelle has never talked to, leaning over her. And even though it isn’t possible, Janelle knows—with every fiber of her being—that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.

But her reincarnation, and Ben’s possible role in it, is only the first of the puzzles that Janelle must solve. While snooping in her FBI-agent father’s files for clues about her accident, she uncovers a clock that seems to be counting down to something—but to what? And when someone close to Janelle is killed, she can no longer deny what’s right in front of her: Everything that’s happened—the accident, the murder, the countdown clock, Ben’s sudden appearance in her life—points to the end of life as she knows it. And as the clock ticks down, she realizes that if she wants to put a stop to the end of the world, she’s going to need to uncover Ben’s secrets—and keep from falling in love with him in the process.

From debut author Elizabeth Norris comes this shattering novel of one girl’s fight to save herself, her world, and the one boy she never saw coming.

Ben doesn't sound like the typical YA boy, so I'm really excited for that. :3 Plus, I kinda sorta think I might love everything from Balzer + Bray. Just maybe.

Harbinger by Sarah Wilson Etienne
Expected publication: February 2nd 2012 by G.P. Putnam's Sons BYR

When sixteen-year-old Faye arrives at Holbrook Academy, she doesn't expect to find herself exactly where she needs to be. After years of strange waking visions and nightmares, her only comfort the bones of dead animals, Faye is afraid she's going crazy. Fast. 


But her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school and the island it sits on, like she's come home. She's even made her first real friends, but odd things keep happening to them. Every morning they wake on the floors of their dorm rooms with their hands stained red.

Faye knows she's the reason, but what does it all mean? The handsome Kel tries to help her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain she can't trust him; in fact, he may be trying to kill her - and the rest of the world too.

Rich, compelling writing will keep the pages turning in this riveting and tautly told psychological thriller.

I've got a thing for boarding school books :P

As always, leave a link and I'll be sure to check out your WoW. (Though probably not until Thursday or Friday. I've got midterms~)

  1. Boarding school books are awesome! They take care of the annoying parent problem in YA books and they're just fun. I wish I had gone to boarding school.

  4. I LOVE stories that are set in boarding schools. I'm not sure why, maybe because of Harry Potter. :P Great picks! Both of these are on my list and I can't wait to read them. :)
