Waiting on Wednesday (5)

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!

Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
Sounds sad and hopeful at the same time. (As a note I recently aquired this one through NetGalley!)

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
I have often thought what a society of do-gooders would look like in public school.

I read the Mockingbirds and it's great. Nice choices. The cover of Awaken makes me wonder what THAT'S about!

Casey (The Bookish Type) said...

I'm really excited to read both of these too! The idea of a technological dystopian future is fascinating because it's so utterly plausible. Great picks!

Alison said...

I'm super excited for mockingbirds. I've heard almost universally good things.

Lizzy said...

I totally understand what you mean about being a poor college student haha. The local library is my best friend, and I usually wait for paperback releases. Great picks!
