Waiting on Wednesday: Mayday

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Mayday
Author: Jonathan Friesen (Twitter)
Publisher: Speak
Publish Date: April 10, 2014
Genre: YA, Contemporary
Pages: 304

Why’d I do it? I suppose it’s the only question that really matters.

Seventeen-year-old Crow will stop at nothing to protect her younger sister—even if it costs her her own life. But then she’s given a chance to come back and make things right. There are a few catches, though. First, she won’t come back as herself. And before she can set things straight, she’ll have to figure out what’s what—and things aren’t exactly as clear-cut as she remembered.
You know me and dark books, guys. I get the feeling from this itty bitty synopsis alone that Mayday is going to offer us all that and more. I love that it's vague enough to hook me, but tells me just enough to know that there are some hard-hitting stakes at play. Plus, I love books that play off of a powerful family dynamic, which it sounds as though this does. I'm sold. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  13. I love how vague that blurb is too Melissa! It raises so many questions and I absolutely have to know the answers, so I'll be picking this up in April for sure. March and April are crazy book release months, so much awesome!

  17. It sounds great. I saw on another blog that Francesca Lia Block has a new book coming out. I love her, so I'm really excited about that. The first five chapters are free on Amazon right now and I'm eager to dig in.
