Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.I haven’t done a WoW post in ages! Mostly because I didn’t want anymore books lol
I have actually caught up on ALL review books. WHOOP! so I’m venturing back in and will hopefully learn to do this whole book review blogging thing in a way that doesn’t overwhelm me again.
First & Then by Emma Mills
Expected publication date: October 13, 2015
Devon has life pretty much figured out: she’s got her best friend Cas, her secret crush (also Cas), and her comfortable routine (mostly spent with Cas). New experiences: not welcome here. But as she enters her senior year, her parents take in her cousin Foster, an undersized weirdo who shows an unexpected talent for football, and star running back Ezra takes Foster under his wing. Devon can't figure out how she feels about Ezra. He's obviously stuck-up, but Foster adores him. Ezra has nothing to say to her, but he keeps seeking her out. And... Devon might actually like him. If only she can admit it to herself.
Funny, fresh, and layered, First and Then proves that change doesn't always tear things apart—sometimes, it brings them together.
~This cover makes me happy with thoughts of spring and flowers. It’s also being described as a blend of Pride & Prejudice and Friday Night Lights. Sounds great to me!
The Anatomical Shape of a Heart

Expected publication Date: November 3, 2015
Artist Beatrix Adams knows exactly how she's spending the summer before her senior year.
Determined to follow in Da Vinci’s footsteps, she's ready to tackle the one thing that will give her an advantage in a museum-sponsored scholarship contest: drawing actual cadavers. But when she tries to sneak her way into the hospital’s Willed Body program and misses the last metro train home, she meets a boy who turns her summer plans upside down.
Jack is charming, wildly attractive . . . and possibly one of San Francisco’s most notorious graffiti artists. On midnight buses and city rooftops, Beatrix begins to see who Jack really is—and tries to uncover what he’s hiding that leaves him so wounded. But will these secrets come back to haunt him? Or will the skeletons in Beatrix’s own family’s closet tear them apart?
~ Jenn Bennett writing YA? How awesome and quirky does this book sound? I loved Bennett’s UF Arcadia Bell series. She always writes such interesting, complex characters and inventive worlds. I can’t wait for this one!
