Waiting on Wednesday (130)

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


The Color of Snow
by Brenda Stanley

When a beautiful 16-year-old girl named Sophie is found sequestered in a cage-like room in a rundown house in the desolate hills of Arbon Valley, Idaho, the entire community is shocked to learn she is the legendary Callidora--a baby girl who was kidnapped from her crib almost seventeen years ago and canonized in missing posters with portraits of what the fabled girl might resemble. Authorities soon learn that the cage was there to protect people from Sophie, because her biological father believes she is cursed.

Sophie is discovered after the man she knows as Papa, shoots and injures Damien, a young man who is trying to rescue her. Now, unsocialized and thrust into the world, and into a family she has never met, Sophie must decide whether she should accept her Papa’s claims that she is cursed and he was only trying to protect others, or trust the new people in her life who have their own agendas. Guided by a wise cousin, Sophie realizes that her most heartbreaking challenge is to decide if her love for Damien will destroy him like her Papa claims, or free her from past demons that haunt her mind.
This one sounds really different as well as interesting! I'll be curious to see how it turns out.

The Color of Snow will be released June 1, 2012.



by Jenny Han & Siobhan Vivian


The start of a brand-new young adult trilogy about three very different girls who overcome their differences and band together to seek revenge on those who have wronged them, uncovering a supernatural secret about what brought them together and why in the process. Each book will rotate back and forth between the perspectives of all three characters.
I've been pumped to read this one ever since its deal was first annoucced in Publisher's Weekly. Jenny Han is one of my favorite authors, and I've also liked the books I've read by Siobhna Vivian, so I'm excited to see how they work together. Plus, I adore the cover!

Burn for Burn will be released September 18, 2012.


What are you looking forward to reading this Wednesday? Let me know below! :)
