"Waiting On" Wednesday #27


“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release (or releases) that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My picks this week:

Fall From Grace
By: Charles Benoit
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: May 8, 2012

Grace always has a plan. There’s her plan to get famous, her plan to get rich, and – above all – her plan to have fun.

Sawyer has plenty of plans too. Plans made for him by his mother, his father, his girlfriend. Maybe they aren’t his plans, but they are plans.

When Sawyer meets Grace, he wonders if he should come up with a few plans himself. Plans about what he actually wants to be, plans to speak his own mind for a change, plans to maybe help Grace with a little art theft.

Wait a minute – plans to what?




52 Reasons to Hate My Father
By: Jessica Brody
Publisher: Farrar Straus & Giroux
Release Date: July 3, 2012

If she wants to receive her beloved trust fund, every week for the next year, seventeen-year-old Lexi Larrabee must take on a different low-income job. All 52 jobs have been carefully pre-selected by her father himself.

What Lexi doesn’t know is that each job was at one point held by one of the world’s most influential people. The goal is to teach his daughter a few lessons about life, compassion, work ethic, and the value of a hard-earned dollar. If each of these jobs eventually led to wealth and success, at least one of them has to work for Lexi.

Left with no other choice, Lexi grudgingly sets off on her quest, each week being comically presented with a highly undesirable job. All of them are designed to turn Lexi into an entirely different person.


Why I’m Waiting: I picked these two this week because they both just sound like such fun. I’ve been on a huge contemporary kick lately and I can’t wait to continue that on into 2012. I’m super excited to read about these wacky jobs and potential art theft!


What are you waiting on this week?

  2. Art theft! That's something different and... intriguing. And fun. And maybe a dangerous thrill ride, since, you know.. it's kinda illegal :D I can't wait! And 52 Reasons to Hate My Father sounds like another fun ride! A new job a week? I can't wait to see what kind of weird and wonderful positions she finds herself in and how, overall, it'll change her as a person. Awesome picks!
