Waiting on Wednesday (Times Two!)

Hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine

Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler
Release: March, 2012
Summary: 
Gabby Gardiner wakes up in a hospital bed looking like a cautionary ad for drunk driving and lacking a single memory of the accident that landed her there. What she can remember, in frank and sardonic detail, is the year leading up to the accident.

As she takes us through her transformation from invisible girl to on-trend Girl Who Dates Billy Nash (aka Most Desirable Boy Ever), she is left wondering: Why is Billy suddenly distancing himself from her? What do her classmates know that Gabby herself does not? Who exactly was in the car that night? And why is Gabby left alone to take the fall?

Putting the pieces together will take every ounce of Gabby's strength. As she peels back the layers of her life, she begins to realize that her climb up the status ladder has been as intoxicating as it has been morally complex...and that nothing about her life is what she has imagined it to be.
I am curious! So sad that it comes out in March, though...

Delirium by Lauren Oliver (special edition!)
Release: August 2nd, 2011
Summary:         
Ninety-five days, and then I’ll be safe.

I wonder whether the procedure will hurt.

I want to get it over with.

It’s hard to be patient.

It’s hard not to be afraid while I’m still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn’t touched me yet.

Still, I worry.

They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness.

The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.
This one had me at the "Special Edition" circle on the cover. I really enjoyed Delirium, so I'm looking forward to this edition (a sample chapter of Pandemonium inside? I need this edition!!). Although it still appears to be a hardcover, and not the paperback...so that's weird. 

What are you waiting on?

  1. I just learned about Where It Began and I think it sounds really good. I've added it to my can't wait for it list. Too bad it doesn't come out for months. At least we have plenty of amazing books to read until then, right?!

  2. Gorgeous covers! I just saw Where It Began in Goodreads yesterday but I just read the synopsis today. I think it sounds great. Looks like it will be a good contemporary. As for Delirium...I still haven't read it! So this may be the chance to get a hold of a copy.

    Here's my Waiting on Wednesday post.

  9. I want to read Where it Began, I can't believe I have to wait until March that seems so far from now.

    I haven't read Delirium yet, so maybe I should buy the limited edition when it's released.

  17. I have a gut feeling that I'll love Where It Began simply from the way the synopsis is written.

    I haven't bought Delirium yet, although I've read it - and this cover is definitely going to be the thing to help me purchase it. I hadn't seen the small print about the sample chapter so that's a bonus!
