WoW: So Many I Want!


Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Its a weekly event for people to help upcoming releases. It was so hard to pick one so I'm going to do a couple.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver:

What if you only had one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all: the world’s most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.

Instead, it turns out to be her last. Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.


Chasing Brooklyn by Lisa Schroeder:


Restless souls and empty hearts

Brooklyn can't sleep. Her boyfriend, Lucca, died only a year ago, and now her friend Gabe has just died of an overdose. Every time she closes her eyes, Gabe's ghost is there waiting for her. She has no idea what he wants or why it isn't Lucca visiting her dreams.

Nico can't stop. He's always running, trying to escape the pain of losing his brother, Lucca. But when Lucca's ghost begins leaving messages, telling Nico to help Brooklyn, emotions come crashing to the surface.

As the nightmares escalate and the messages become relentless, Nico reaches out to Brooklyn. But neither of them can admit that they're being haunted. Until they learn to let each other in, not one soul will be able to rest.

I'm only going to do those two though I have quite a few I want to put but I'll wait until next week. I've been seeing a few people with Before I Fall in their mailboxes and I absolutely love the cover and the description sounds really good. Plus it seems like sad coming to terms with your death books are usually really good.
I also put Chasing Brooklyn because I want to read some more ghost stories. It seems like all I have been reading of the supernatural genre is with vampires and werewolves. So this will be a nice change.

I'm sorry if you guys haven't seen me around lately. I've been really busy with school and stuff so please don't feel neglected. I wish there was more hours in the day since it seems like I never have enough time to do all things I want and need to do. I love you all and I give hugs and kisses to anyone who leaves a comment.
Talk To Yeah Laterz,
Rachel
