Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Ivory and Bone: Julie Eshbaugh
Publication Date: June 14th, 2016
I don't really know much about the pre-historic era, but if it's all like this then obviously I've been missing out. I don't even think I've read a book set in this era, but I think Ivory and Bone will be a good place to start. I also heard there's a wooly mammoth in this book, or maybe multiple.
Cassie's Waiting On:
Publication Date: April 5, 2016
Everything about Jessie is wrong. At least, that’s what it feels like during her first week of junior year at her new ultra-intimidating prep school in Los Angeles. Just when she’s thinking about hightailing it back to Chicago, she gets an email from a person calling themselves Somebody/Nobody (SN for short), offering to help her navigate the wilds of Wood Valley High School. Is it an elaborate hoax? Or can she rely on SN for some much-needed help?
It’s been barely two years since her mother’s death, and because her father eloped with a woman he met online, Jessie has been forced to move across the country to live with her stepmonster and her pretentious teenage son.
In a leap of faith—or an act of complete desperation—Jessie begins to rely on SN, and SN quickly becomes her lifeline and closest ally. Jessie can’t help wanting to meet SN in person. But are some mysteries better left unsolved?
I saw that this was supposed to be a mix of tragedy and comedy, which definitely sounds like an interesting mix to me. This seems like one of those books where (if the author does it right) these characters will seem like friends, which would be an added bonus for this story. Plus, there's waffles shaped like hearts on the cover...this has to be an awesome story haha!
