Current Events:

I have been doing some thinking and I've come to the conclusion that I need to take a temporary break from book blogging. NOTE: Any tour stops that I've committed to will be honored. I have decided that I want to combine my love of books, blogging, knitting, movies digital photography and life in general into 1 blog so that I don't feel so overwhelmed. Right now I feel like my book blogging is a job, I already have one of those. My plan is to come back in the near future with a new blog and a new plan.

Waiting On Wednesday #1

"Waiting On"  Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking  the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WOW is:

Synopsis:

Missy didn’t mean to cut so deep. But after the party where she was humiliated in front of practically everyone in school, who could blame her for wanting some comfort? Sure, most people don’t find comfort in the touch of a razor blade, but Missy always was . . . different.

That’s why she was chosen to become one of the Four Horsemen Apocalypse: War. Now Missy wields a different kind of blade—a big, brutal sword that can cut down anyone and anything in her path. But it’s with this weapon in her hand that Missy learns something that could help her triumph over her own pain: control.

A unique approach to the topic of self-mutilation, Rage is the story of a young woman who discovers her own power, and refuses to be defeated by the world.




Why I want it:

I'm currently in the process of reading the first book in this series, Hunger, and so far I am throughly enjoying it.  Not only is it witty but it's VERY real....sometimes uncomfortably real.  I can hardly wait to see what's in store with the second book in this series.  I read an author interview on another YA book blog and the author said that book two was the hardest for her to write up to this point.

I picked this last week. Definitely can't wait to read it. I enjoyed Hunger. It was a unique spin on eating disorders. Good choice.

Cynthia said...

I'm still waiting on Hunger but I'm pretty sure I'll be looking forward to this one too!

I have not read Hunger yet, but I keep hearing great things about it. This one sounds like a tough read (emotionally) but a good one. I hope you enjoy it!

Lori said...

I hope when you get your book, that you will enjoy it as much as you hope to. Wanna see what I am Waiting On Wednesday for?

Oh wow, I don't think I have seen a book with this subject matter - I am tempted to pick it up, but I always feel a little funny when it deals with soul-type stuff.
