Waiting on Wednesday (121)

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

Dead Time by Anne Cassidy 
Rose and Joshua first met when Joshua and his dad came to live with Rose and her mum. Then Rose and Josh's world turns upside down when their mother and father go out for dinner one evening and never return. With police inquiries going nowhere, Rose is dispatched to live with her chilly, unfriendly grandmother and Joshua is sent to live with his uncle. Then Joshua comes to London to study and Rose is witness to not one, but two murders. Why is this happening to Rose? Can it be anything to do with the investigations Joshua has been doing into the disappearance of their parents? A taut and pacy thriller that is the start of a stylish new series from an acclaimed writer for teens.
I also love mysteries so this one sounds like just my kind of book! The premise just sounds fabulous, and I can't wait to see what kind of trouble Rose and Joshua get into. I also really like the cover.

Dead Time will be released on May 22, 2012!

The Thing About the Truth by Lauren Barnholdt 
Sixteen-year-old Kelsey Romano has always been one of the most popular girls at Concordia Prep. But after a disastrous breakup and her subsequent meltdown (um, destruction of school property, anyone?) she's kicked out of Con Prep and shipped off to Concordia High School, for good.

Seventeen-year-old Isaac Brandano has been kicked out of more prep schools than he can name. But now that his father's State Senate campaign is pushing a public school agenda, Isaac finds himself enrolled at Concordia High.

Kelsey and Isaac are destined to hate each other. And at first, they do. But when they are forced together on the creation of a new school club, sparks begin to fly. Then the club's critical event turns into chaos. Now Kelsey and Isaac must retrace their steps and figure out how and why everything got so got screwed up, who was to blame, and how they can move forward.

This new novel from fan-favorite Lauren Barnholdt showcases--through a sweet and sparkly narrative--how the last person you expect might just be the one who changes your life forever.
How I ever mentioned before how much I love Lauren's books? Because I do! This one sounds like it will be no different to tell the truth. I can't wait to see the sparks that fly between Isaac and Kelsey! :)

The Thing About the Truth will be released on July 10, 2012! 


  1. I love the sound of Dead Time, mysteries are always awesome :)

  2. I hadn't heard of Dead Time before, but it sounds neat - thanks for putting it on my radar!

  3. Really looking forward to The Thing about the Truth. There's something about her style that really makes her books fun to read. Two-Way Street is probably still my fave, but she's got lots of good ones, including a bunch of novellas that make a cute collection - have you read those? I think there's a compilation of them called "Taste," that I bought on the Nook. Pretty good! Thanks Lauren. Btw, that is an interesting cover image, something certainly seems to be distracting her!
