Waiting on Wednesday (Times Two!)

Hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine

Fury by Elizabeth Miles
Release: August 8, 2011
Sometimes sorry isn't enough....

It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems... 

Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better--the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend. 

On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel...something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed. 

In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay. 

Em and Chase have been chosen.
Do I really need to say anything? This book just sounds amazing.

Twisted by Sara Shepard
Release: July 5th, 2011
It’s been a year since the torturous notes from A stopped and the mystery of Alison DiLaurentis’s disappearance was finally put to rest. Now seniors in high school, Aria, Spencer, Hanna, and Emily are older, but they’re not any wiser. The pretty little liars have more secrets than ever—twisted secrets that could destroy the perfect lives they’ve worked so hard to rebuild.

Aria’s jealous of her boyfriend’s new exchange student. Spencer’s getting a little too cozy with her soon-to-be-stepbrother. Hanna’s one scandalous photo away from ruining her dad’s Senate campaign. And Emily will do anything to get a swim scholarship.

Worst of all: Last spring break in Jamaica, they did something unforgivable. The girls are desperate to forget that fateful night, but they should know better than anyone that all secrets wash ashore . . . eventually.
Honestly, I was pretty upset when I found out Shepard was writing another PLL book. I liked where the last one left off, and I wanted the series to be over. But, even I can't pretend I'm not interested in Twisted. I'm curious to see what the hell these girls could have possibly done to get themselves in trouble (again), so I'll be anticipating the release :)

What are you waiting on this week?  


  1. I read the first Pretty Little Liars book and loved it... now I just need to make time to read the rest!

  3. fury looks so good!! i love PLL the show, but I haven't read the books.

  4. Haha, I can't get enough of Pretty Little Liars, even though I thought the last one was a great last book. We'll just have to see what they're up to now ;)

  5. Fury looks amazing! I also haven't read PLL, but I really enjoy the show. Maybe I can start the series this summer when I have more time. Great picks!

  6. Two great choices. :) I'm also looking forward to Fury.

  7. Fury is one of my top picks! And another PLL should be fun. What else could they do?

  8. I'm dying to read both of those, especially Fury!

  9. Fury sounds so good! I'm liking how there have been several Greek mythology influenced YA novels this year! :)

  10. Yeah, Fury looks good! :) I admit, I haven't read any Pretty Little Liars books (or seen the show) so the second book isn't really on my list. Happy reading!

  11. Great picks! I love the cover for Fury! I can't wait to read it. I really need to start the PLL series as well! :)

  12. I haven't read any of the PLL books but maybe I will soon if I had more time.
