"Waiting On" Wednesday #38

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release that we’re eagerly anticipating. Let the salivating commence.

My pick this week:

If I Lie
By: Corrine Jackson
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: August 28, 2012


A powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception.

Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy – he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.

Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep – secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend… and her promise.

Why I’m Waiting: Over the past year I’ve become more and more enamored with contemporary novels, and this one looks amazing. The first sentence of the blurb has totally sold me… the gray space between truth and perception? Oh, yes please. I can’t wait for this book. The cover is gorgeous too, I love the black and white color scheme with the bold lettering, the simplicity, and the fact that you can't see their faces.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
