Waiting on Wednesday + iClue

WOW is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine

But I Love Him by Amanda Grace (aka, Mandy Hubbard)
Release: May 2011
Tonight was so much worse than anything before it. Tonight he didn’t stop after the first slap.

At the beginning of senior year, Ann was a smiling, straight-A student and track star with friends and a future. Then she met a haunted young man named Connor. Only she can heal his emotional scars; only he could make her feel so loved-and needed. Ann can’t recall the pivotal moment it all changed, when she surrendered everything to be with him, but by graduation, her life has become a dangerous high wire act. Just one mistake could trigger Connor’s rage, a senseless storm of cruel words and violence damaging everything-and everyone-in its path.

This evocative slideshow of flashbacks reveals a heartbreaking story of love gone terribly wrong.
This one sounds like it could be a touching, intense read - I've definitely got this one on my wishlist!

Considering the amazing authors behind this (like the hilarious LiLa's - who have the most amusing blog ever, not to mention a mysteriously fun novel), it's bound to be amazing.

    This book sounds REALLY good. Adding it to my TBR list right this second =)

    Here's my WOW post:

  9. Lea, Great pick! Those kinds of books always leave me feeling so Sad and Depressed sometimes.

    All I can see is a girl who ruined her chances of getting into a good college, losing a scholarship, being abused/taken advantage of etc...

    My mother used to always tell me that my soul was to sensitive for this world.
    When I was little and see a dead animal on the side of the road I would cry, I picked up strays starting at about 5 yo and if my Dad wouldn't let me keep them then my Mom and I found them a good home.

    I have a hard time watching the news because I can't stand what's happening to those that can't defend themselves:Children, Animals, Disabled/elderly, etc...

    I can't tell you how many books I've sobbed over! But I think my depth of emotion shows in my reviews.

    LOL, sorry about the long post. I imagine my love of books and music is escapism at it's finest for me and that's why I love reading so much!

    Thanks for the great pick, Lea, I will definitely read it.
    I read Stay but haven't posted my review yet.

    Stop by and see my WOW (sorry again for the long post)

    Kristi-The Book Faery's WOW

  10. Intense is definitely the word I would use to describe a book like this, wow. It kind of reminds me of Dreamland by Sarah Dessen...

  11. Intense definitely sounds like the right word to describe But I Love Him... but I'm still looking forward to reading it! Great WoW pick!! :)

  12. i like the cover. hearts have been done so many times but i like the use of the shards of glass or paper?

  13. Great pick! I'm really looking forward to reading this one as well, and I like how the cover is simple yet eye-catching.
