Waiting on Wednesday 1/13

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and spotlights upcoming novels we just can't wait for! This week, I'm looking forward to:

Title: Invisible Girl
Author: Mary Hanlon Stone
Release Date: May 13, 2010

When poor Boston girl Stephanie is abandoned by
her abusive mother and taken in by Annie’s Beverly Hills family, she feels anything but home. Her dark complexion and accent stick out like a sore thumb in the golden-hued world of blondes and extravagance.These are girls who seem to live life in fastforward,
while Stephanie is stuck on pause. Yet when a new rival moves to town, threatening Annie’s
queen-bee status, Stephanie finds herself taking
sides in a battle she never even knew existed,
and that feeling invisible is a wound that can only be by standing up for who she is.

I just think this looks excellent. It's a bit like a coming of age story, but I think it might have just the right depth that such novels need. Can't wait!

In other news - An open letter to whomever sent me two books via Amazon anonymously: THANK YOU!!! You are officially my hero! I received Sea Change by Aimee Friedman and I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder. No return address was given, and no note...just "Enjoy!" So, whoever sent me these lovely gems...thank you (a tad creepy you know my address), but thank you!


  1. This cover just hooks you! So glad you're a fan of WoW...thanks for participating!!

  2. It certainly sounds interesting but not exactly original. The cover is kinda sad too.

  3. Beautiful cover, this one looks like a great read!

  4. Awesome cover. And congrats on ur book haul..

  5. What a nice surprise! I had a blogging friend send my daughter a birthday present once. I thought it was wonderful and thoughtful, and I found it disturbing that she found my address that easily!!

  6. That book looks great! Nice find. How cool that you got surprise books in the mail, but yes, disturbing about the address lol!

  7. Great pick! This is on my wishlist too, can't wait to read it!
    Ooooh and how exciting that someone sent you books ... I mean, it is slightly creepy, but wahey like they said - ENJOY. ;)

  8. That book does sound really good!! How cool that someone sent you a book from amazon!

  9. Lol how did they figure out your address?

    I saw this pick on a previous blog and it does look intriguing.

  10. Great pick! It's not one of the books I'm looking forward to the most, but I'm interested to see how the author carries off that plot.
    And congrats on the awesome books! I'm so jealous; I want to read both of them. Though, yes, agree on the address, hm...

  11. Ooh, the cover looks nice and it sounds right up my alley. Gonna check this one out! :)

    And wow, two new books! Yes, about the address, that is a little weird. But hey, TWO NEW BOOKS! Lisa Schroeder!

  12. This sounds like a good contemporary YA. I don't usually read that kind of stuff (being an urban fantasy nut) but since I grew up in BH I might try this one to see if it is portrayed accurately or as the expected cliche.

    Definitely nice to get some books but the address issue would bother me too. Oh, well, I'm sure it was just a nice person being generous so enjoy!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I always do my very best to return the favour :)
