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 really looking forward to:

Title: The Secret To Lying
Author: Todd Mitchell
Release Date: June 8, 2010

James was the guy no one noticed — just another fifteen-year-old in a small town. So when he gets into an academy for gifted students, he decides to leave his boring past behind. In a boarding school full of nerds and geeks, being cool is easy. All it takes is a few harmless pranks to invent a new James: fighter, rebel, punk. Everyone’s impressed, except for the beautiful "Ice Queen" Ellie Frost and the mysterious ghost44, an IM presence who sees through his new identity. But James is riding high, playing pranks and hooking up with luscious Jessica Keen. There’s just one thing awry: he’s starting to have vivid dreams of being a demon-hunting warrior, a thrill that is spilling over into dangerous and self-destructive acts while he’s awake. As he’s drawn deeper into his real-life lies and his dream-world conquests, James begins to wonder: What’s the price for being the coolest guy around?

While I'm not the biggest fan of the cover, I think this story sounds great. I like that it blends an ordinary rebellious teen with a potentially supernatural calling. I guess it just sounds intriguing to me!

In other news, the lovely masterminds from Teens Read and Write are hosting an awesome Glee music giveaway! Please tell them Melissa from iswimforoceans referred you - we'll both get extra points!
