Waiting On Wednesday: Week 73

My pick this week is:

Not That Kind Of Girl by Siobhan Vivian (9/1/10)

Natalie Sterling wants to be in control. She wants her friends to be loyal. She wants her classmates to elect her student council president. She wants to find the right guy, not the usual jerk her school has to offer. She wants a good reputation, because she believes that will lead to good things.

But life is messy, and it's very hard to be in control of it. Not when there are freshman girls running around in a pack, trying to get senior guys to sleep with them. Not when your friends have secrets they're no longer comfortable sharing. Not when the boy you once dismissed ends up being the boy you wants to sleep with yourself - but only in secret, with nobody ever finding out.

Slut or saint? Winner or loser? Natalie is getting tired of these forced choices - and is now going to find a way to live life in the sometimes messy, sometimes wonderful in-between. (summary and cover from Amazon)

I really enjoyed Siobhan's first novel, A Little Friendly Advice, so I'm really looking forward to reading this one, especially since the storyline sounds intruiging. And the cover is cute too!

  8. I just recently bought Siobhan Vivian's book Same Difference. I'm really glad I saw this one and I can't believe it isn't on GoodReads yet. Atleast not that I could find. It sounds really good and I'm looking forward to it.
