Waiting on Wednesday 1-9-13

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.


This week my pick for Waiting on Wednesday is The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry. It sounds awesome!!

  • Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
  • Publication date: 6/11/2013
When Cady wakes up, she has no memory of who she is. All she knows is that there is a pillowcase over her head and a person in the room has instructed another to “take her out back and finish her off.” Cady must find a way to save herself. But how can she do this when she doesn’t even know her name?

April Henry has written another nail-biting suspense thriller that explores such themes as murder, memory loss, identity theft, and biological warfare. As with her other novels, her strong female protagonist joins forces with a teen guy and together they race against the clock to stay alive and save Cady's missing family.

Umm after that synopsis how can I not need this book?! It sounds dark and creepy mystery/thriller. My favorite!!! 

What are you waiting on this week? What do you think of my pick? Let me know in the comments.

  10. I found this book today on the S&S website. I can't wait to read it.

    Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger. This is coming out in March, 2013.

    "A broken past and a divided future can’t stop the electric connection of two teens in this “charged and romantic” (Becca Fitzpatrick), lush novel.

    Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston has no idea how he survived the category five tornado that killed his parents. And he has no idea if the beautiful, dark-haired girl who’s swept through his dreams every night since the storm is real. But he hopes she is.

    Seventeen-year-old Audra is a sylph, an air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even coax it into a weapon with a simple string of commands. She’s also a guardian—Vane’s guardian—and has sworn an oath to protect Vane at all costs. Even if it means sacrificing her own life.

    When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra’s forced to help Vane remember who he is. He has a power to claim—the secret language of the West Wind, which only he can understand. But unlocking his heritage will also unlock the memory Audra needs him to forget. And their greatest danger is not the warriors coming to destroy them—but the forbidden romance that’s grown between them.

  11. Great picked. I like April Henry's last thriller, but I didn't love it. Though I liked it enough and thought it was memorable enough to want to read this one.

  12. Great pick! I'm not big on thrillers but this one seems very adventurous and intricate.

  13. That surely sounds like a very intense book. I like those on occasion, may have to check this one out. Thanks for the suggestion. I just finished reading R.S. Guthrie's Blood Land, not as intense as this one sounds but it was gripping and I enjoyed it enough to suggest it! rsguthrie.com if anyone wants to check it out! This one now is on my list thanks!
