Waiting on Wednesday (23)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. This is one of my favorite memes because not only is my TBR pile so much bigger at the end of the night but also the covers are always amazing!

Frost by Marianna Baer. September 13, 2011!

Leena Thomas's senior year at boarding school begins with a shock: Frost House, her cozy dorm of close friends, has been assigned an unexpected roommate: confrontational, eccentric Celeste Lazar. But while Leena's anxiety about a threat to her sanctuary proves valid, it becomes less and less clear whether the threat lies with her new roommate, with Leena's own mind, or within the very nature of Frost House itself. Mysterious happenings in the dorm, an intense triangle between Leena, Celeste, and Celeste's brother, and the reawakening of childhood fears, all push Leena to take increasingly desperate measures to feel safe. Frost is the story of a hunting. As to whether the demons are supernatural or psychological...well, which answer would let you sleep at night?

As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott. September 15, 2011!
Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends and a
crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them-and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.

Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers...but only in exchange for her trust.
What are you waiting for?

Ooh, I love stories with freaky, psychological happenings...and in the second one, stories about amnesia and the possibility that people aren't telling the truth.

These sound good!

I have not heard of either of these books, well done. I like finding new books to add to the leaning tower of Pisa TBR list.

I am a new follower.

As I Wake has been on my wishlist for a while now :). Ooohmygosh though I hadn't heard of Frost, and it looks wonderful, especially this line: "As to whether the demons are supernatural or psychological...well, which answer would let you sleep at night?" Sounds intense!! Adding to to-read list now! Great choices!!

Felicia said...

I'm looking forward to As I Wake, it's by Elizabeth Scott and that's enough for me already :D Frost, on the other hand...sounds creepy, but the cover's stunning!

Thanks for dropping by my WoW (:
