Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme created by Breaking The Spine to spotlight some pre-release books bloggers are itching to get their hands on!

I’ve decided to do things a bit differently here on the Mod Podge Bookshelf. As a penniless and raged college student, I can’t afford to just drop everything and buy a book at full price when it’s first released, sometimes there’s some waiting involved. So, not only will I spotlight pre-release books from my wishlist, but also books on my wishlist that have been released recently that are not in my possession.

Here we go!

The Rosebush by Michele Jaffe
I love it when murder or suicide is involved in the plot line, I guess I love waiting to read where the redemption lies.

XVI by Julia Karr
I keep hearing good things about this one, the plot sounds like a combo of The Uglies and Unwind, both of which I loved, so I am waiting, but not very patiently!

I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan
After reading the summary I thought, eh, okay, but then I started reading the reviews and I just have to get my hands on this book!
Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters by Natalie Standiford
This book is another that just keeps growing on me, every time I see it, I want it more and more!

This is the second time I've seen Rosebush in WoW. Hmmm, this must be really interesting and I might look into it myself.

Rosebush sounds like such a good book! Also, It would really hurt to be thrown into a rosebush.
