Waiting on Wednesday: different version

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

Today when I opened up my email, Powells (the coolest bookstore you could ever visit) emailed me saying that today there was free shipping! How am I supposed to pass that up? I went through my list of books I want, found two I've been wanting for what seems like forever and bought them.

So now I'm waiting on them to come in the mail, hense the new waiting on Wednesday!
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller
Published by Bloomsbury
Genre: YA contemporary
$17.99 (US hardback)
214 pages
What it's about:

When Travis returns home from a stint in Afghanistan, his parents are splitting up, his brother’s stolen his girlfriend and his car, and he’s haunted by nightmares of his best friend’s death. It’s not until Travis runs into Harper, a girl he’s had a rocky relationship with since middle school, that life actually starts looking up. And as he and Harper see more of each other, he begins to pick his way through the minefield of family problems and post-traumatic stress to the possibility of a life that might resemble normal again. Travis’s dry sense of humor, and incredible sense of honor, make him an irresistible and eminently lovable hero.
Chosen Ones by Tiffany Truitt

Genre: YA dystopian?
$9.99 (US paperback)
400 pages
What it's about:
Life is bleak but uncomplicated for sixteen-year-old Tess, living in a not-too-distant future where the government, faced with humanity's extinction, created the Chosen Ones, artificial beings who are extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.

When Tess begins work at Templeton, a Chosen Ones training facility, she meets James, and the attraction is immediate in its intensity, overwhelming in its danger. But there is more to Templeton than Tess ever knew. Can she stand against her oppressors, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?

Post a Comment

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
