Waiting on Wednesday (140)

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

My picks for this week are...

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

"Bono met his wife in high school," Park says.
"So did Jerry Lee Lewis," Eleanor answers.
"I’m not kidding," he says.
"You should be," she says, "we’re sixteen."
"What about Romeo and Juliet?"
"Shallow, confused, then dead."
''I love you," Park says.
"Wherefore art thou," Eleanor answers.
"I’m not kidding," he says.
"You should be."

Set over the course of one school year in 1986, ELEANOR AND PARK is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under.
Okay, I ADORED Rainbow's first book, Attachments, and ever since then, I've been eagerly anticapting her next one. So when I first heard about Eleanor and Park, I was beyond excited! It sounds quirky and fun, and since Rainbow rocked at using a past setting before, I'm sure it will be the same for this one. Basically,  I need this book now.

Elanor & Park will be released March 2013!

Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green

Some say the seaside town of Echo Bay is cursed. They may be right. When a game of truth or dare spins out of control, three beautiful teen girls start receiving mysterious dares containing hints to dark secrets long buried. For artsy outcast Sydney Morgan; perfect, popular Caitlin "Angel" Thomas; and queen bee Tenley Reed, the truth is not an option.

This is no party game-it's do or die.

And it's their turn to play.

This one looks chilling yet thrilling, and since it's another book associated with the amazing Paper Lantern Lit, I can't wait to give it a try! :)

Truth or Dare will be released May 2013! 


  1. Nice picks! I'm especially looking forward to Eleanor & Park, because I have a thing for smart YA. Ahh, I can almost taste the anticipation. Yay!

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW here.

  2. These look great! Added both to my to-read list <3

    Here's my WoW :)

  3. I'm still on the fence about reading Eleanor & Park, in part because I loved Attachments so much (one of best books I've read all year). I'm also not sure I'll be too keen on it taking place in 1986, but who knows, I may not be able to resist the pull of reading another book by Rowell.

  4. I am really interested in Eleanor and Park (it's available on Netgalley if you haven't seen!)
