Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!
Because I got frustrated last Wednesday because I hadn't realized Chrome would delete everything I wrote after I published it, I'm going to feature two books that I am incredibly excited for!
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller
Release date: June 19, 2012
This is a 2012 debut, so obviously I'm going to at least try to read as many of those as possible. There's something about this specific book, though. It's not the cover. I do love it, but it's not the best I've ever seen. The premise is what caught me. A Marine's return from Afghanistan, accompanied with PTSD, Travis needs to learn to leave the war behind and deal with his life at home, which isn't something that sounds too fun. Then Harper comes along, a girl who hates Trevor for spreading rumors in middle school. You know that's not going to be the end of them. Just look at the cover. I don't know! There's just something about this that has me so intrigued. I just absolutely cannot wait to read this book.
Never Enough by Denise Jaden
Release date: July 10, 2012
I honestly can't tell you much about this book. This is Denise Jaden's second book. If anyone did the Contemps challenge this past year, you'll recognize her name, as she was one of the authors. Losing Faith was a novel she wrote for Nanowrimo I think in 2010? Or 2009. Either way, she wrote the first draft in a month and it was an incredible debut. If you haven't read it yet, you should check it out. Goodreads hasn't listed a description, and neither has Amazon, so the only thing I've heard about is from Ms. Jaden, and that is that it literally changed her life. I can't wait for this one. As a matter of fact, I've already pre-ordered it. If you go to Amazon, they're having a buy 4 for 3 promotion and this is one of them. I looked through so many books yesterday to find some, so I ordered about twelve books last night alone. There are a few debuts with the promotion, so you should explore!
So, what do you want this Wednesday?
