Waiting On Wednesday (64)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. WOW spotlights forthcoming titles that we absolutely can't wait to read.

Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors

Summary:Writing her own love story could drive a girl insane!
When you’re the daughter of the bestselling Queen of Romance, life should be pretty good. But 16-year-old Alice Amorous has been living a lie ever since her mother was secretly hospitalized for mental illness. After putting on a brave front for months, time is running out. The next book is overdue, and the Queen can’t write it. Alice needs a story for her mother—and she needs one fast. That’s when she meets Errol, a strange boy who claims to be Cupid, who insists that Alice write about the greatest love story in history: his tragic relationship with Psyche. As Alice begins to hear Errol’s voice in her head and see things she can’t explain, she must face the truth—that she’s either inherited her mother’s madness, or Errol is for real.

My Thoughts: Oh Oh Oh I can't wait for this one! And look, there is writing inside the heart! Neato!

FYI: If you saw the vlog from earlier, yay! if not, sorry. I tried editing it and I royally screwed it up! so yeah its down now! If you didn't see it, not a huge deal!

Win The Awakening-CLOSED

The first in a trilogy. Get out your tape recorders, crystals, and extra batteries— you’re about to go where our world meets the spirit world.

Psychic Kids, Paranormal State, Haunting Evidence—these and countless other television shows are making believers out of millions of people: Ghosts exist, and they’re living right beside us. For centuries, individuals have been trying to prove the existence of ghosts. But without hard evidence, it’s been difficult to make the case. But now as science and technology have progressed, ghost hunters have been able to use scientific means, along with more traditional psychic tools, to make their case. Photographs, video recordings, and sound recordings are all producing some amazing results.
In this new series, Ghost Huntress, meet Kendall Moorehead, a seemingly typical teen. When her family moves from Chicago to the small historical town of Radisson, Georgia, her psychic abilities awaken. She’s hearing, feeling, and seeing things that seem unbelievable at first, but with the help of the town psychic, Kendall is able to come to terms with her newly emerging gift. So, together with her new BFF, Celia, Kendall forms a ghost hunting team. They’ve got all the latest technology. They’ve got Kendall for their psychic. Now they’re going to clean up Radisson of its less savory spirits.
The story is fiction. The science is real. Welcome to a new reality.

Win It Started With A Dare-CLOSED

Summary: Self-proclaimed nobody CG Silverman sees her move to an upscale new school as her chance to be somebody different. Her devil-may-care attitude attracts the in-clique, and before CG realizes it, a routine game of truth or dare launches her to iconic status. While this rebel image helps secure CG’s newfound popularity, it also propels her through a maze of unprecedented chaos, with each new lie and every dare opening doors that, in most cases, were better off left shut. CG is on a collision course with disaster. Will she be able to keep up the façade? Or will the whole world find out she’s a fraud?

Top 6 Comments Of Freefall

Mindi has stopped by to comment on the top 6 Freefall covers!

1.  This version caught my eye from the very beginning of the contest. I adore the color scheme!  And to me, these characters exude this simultaneous playfulness and longing that perfectly demonstrates The Love Story in my book.  I smile every time I look at it!

2.  An excellent job of working the (unanswerable) tagline!  The character here really, really looks like he is going to topple over that cliff within the next fraction of a second.  No doubt about it!  And how can he come back from that?  :-)

 3.  The gray sky here is so fitting because Freefall takes place the Pacific NW. And the boy on a rock, staring toward water?  That totally happens in the story!  It's very cool to get to see it depicted in this way!

 4.  This purple is gorgeous!  And love, love, love the use of font.  It gives a very vivid picture of what is awaiting him when he comes to the end of his freefall!

5.  Talk about a well-done mood piece!  Every detail here from the black to the shadowy figure to branches to the the cracked glass gives me a sense that something upsetting--and even dangerous--is going to happen.  It kind of gives me chills!

 6.  I love the vibe in this one and how they're facing each other, but they're both looking down.  It could be interpreted as sort of a shy thing, or a moody thing, or a combination of both.  And could that girl in her little white dress be any cuter? I think not. 

Thanks Mindi for stopping by! Thanks to everyone who participated, hope you had fun!
