Waiting on Wednesday (120)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My picks this week are:


Small Damages by Beth Kephart 
It’s senior year, and while Kenzie should be looking forward to prom and starting college in the fall, she is mourning the loss of her father. She finds solace in the one person she trusts, her boyfriend, and she soon finds herself pregnant. Kenzie’s boyfriend and mother do not understand her determination to keep the baby. She is sent to southern Spain for the summer, where she will live out her pregnancy as a cook’s assistant on a bull ranch, and her baby will be adopted by a Spanish couple.

Alone and resentful in a foreign country, Kenzie is at first sullen and difficult. She begins to open her eyes and her heart to the beauty that is all around her and inside of her.
I recently read Beth's latest book (You are My Only)  and really, really enjoyed it, so I can't wait to read Small Damages! Plus, it doesn't hurt that the premise sounds amazing, and I also love the simplicity of the cover-it makes it absolutely gorgeous in my eyes! 


First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky
Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl always searching for what's next, seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving and besides, opposites attract.

What starts as friendship, turns into admiration, respect and caring, until finally these two lone souls find they are truly in love with each other.

But staying in love is not as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they're going to have to work at it. And learn that sometimes love means having to say you're sorry.
I loved Kate's debut book, Awaken, so I can't wait to see what she has up her sleeves for this one! It sounds a little cliched to tell the truth, but I'm still eager to give it a try.
