Waiting on Wednesday: Paper Valentine & Mind Games

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

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: Paper Valentine
Author: Brenna Yovanoff
Publisher: Razorbill
Publish Date: January 8, 2013
Genre: YA, Paranormal, Horror
Pages: 368
For Hannah, the summer is a complicated one. Her best friend Lillian died six months ago, and Hannah just wants her life to go back to normal. But how can things be normal when Lillian’s ghost is haunting her bedroom, pushing her to investigate the mysterious string of murders? Hannah’s just trying to understand why her friend self-destructed, and where she fits now that Lillian isn’t there to save her a place among the social elite. And she must stop thinking about Finny Boone, the big, enigmatic delinquent whose main hobbies seem to include petty larceny and surprising acts of kindness.

With the entire city in a panic, Hannah soon finds herself drawn into a world of ghost girls and horrifying secrets. She realizes that only by confronting the Valentine Killer will she be able move on with her life—and it’s up to her to put together the pieces before he strikes again.
Title: Mind Games
Author: Kiersten White
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publish Date: February 19, 2013
Genre: YA, Dystopian, Paranormal
Pages: 256
Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future.

Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.

In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.


  1. I love how dark and creepy Brenna's books always are, but I haven't read one that I absolutely loved yet. Maybe Paper Valentine will be the one! And I'm just in complete cover lust for Mind Games - gorgeous!

    My WoW pick this week is Alice in the Sky With Diamonds by Alice M. Grey!

  2. I am very excited about both of these! I have enjoyed previous works of both authors and am excited for new worlds.

  3. Mind Games sound absolutely amazing and I want to read it when it comes out. It sounds interesting. Great picks!

  11. Ooooooh! I am so excited for Mind Games. Paper Valentine sound wonderful too. Agh. So many good books.

  12. These are on my TBR! Great choices, especially the Kiersten White title. I'm anxious to read a non-Paranormalcy book by her.

  13. I am also pining for both of these. They look incredible. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Mind Games sounds incredible and WOW, that cover. So, so pretty. I sure hope the world doesn't end before we can read this!

  15. I cannot wait to see what Kiersten White's book is like! She is wicked smart and I'm sure this is going to mind blowing (no pun intended).


  16. Mind Games sounds awesome. Paper Valentine, I think I'll wait for reviews, but I do love the author. I thought The Replacement was beautifully penned.
