Waiting on Wednesday (126)

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

My picks this week are:

Lucid by Adrienne Stoltz and Ron Bass
What if you could dream your way into a different life? What if you could choose to live that life forever?

Sloane and Maggie have never met. Sloane is a straight-A student with a big and loving family. Maggie lives a glamorously independent life as an up-and-coming actress in New York. The two girls couldn't be more different - except for one thing. They share a secret that they can't tell a soul. At night, they dream that they're each other.

The deeper they're pulled into the promise of their own lives, the more their worlds begin to blur dangerously together. Before long, Sloane and Maggie can no longer tell which life is real and which is just a dream. They realize that eventually they will have to choose one life to wake up to, or risk spiraling into insanity. But that means giving up one world, one love, and one self, forever.

This is a dazzling debut that will still readers' hearts.
Books dealing with dreams are usually a epic win for me or an epic loss, but hopefully this will be the former of the two! I really like the cover, and the premise just sounds fabulous. Can't wait to find out how it is.

Lucid will be released August 30, 2012!


So Close to You by Rachel Carter
Lydia Bentley has heard stories about the Montauk Project all her life: stories about the experiments that took place at the abandoned military base near her home and the people who’ve disappeared over the years. When she stumbles into a vessel that transports her to a dangerous and strange new reality, Lydia realizes that all the stories she’s ever heard about the Montauk Project are true—and that she’s in the middle of one of the most dangerous experiments in history.

Alongside Wes, a darkly mysterious boy whom she is wary to trust, Lydia begins to unravel the secrets surrounding the project. But the truths behind these secrets force her to question all her choices. And if Lydia chooses wrong, she might not save her family but destroy them...and herself.
Ooh, this one sounds great! Secrets, new realities, and a swoon worthy boy?! What's not to love! Plus I really like the cover for this one. It's different but in a good kind of way.

So Close to You will be released July 10, 2012!

  1. I'm loving the concept of Lucid. I don't think I've read anything quite it. August is just too far away!

  3. These both sound like strong possibilities! I agree, books with dream elements are usually either great or terrible.

    1. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who thinks that. I remember I read one a couple of years ago that while had a GREAT premise just didn't do it at all for me. However, I've read others that I've outright loved. So hopefully this one will be the later of the two situations. :)
