Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine, has become my new favorite book meme. Part of it is because I like owning books as much as I like reading books and the rest is that it is fun to be excited about new books.
This week, I'm excited about The List by Siobhan Vivian.
GoodReads Description: An intense look at the rules of high school attraction—and the price that’s paid for them.
It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn’t matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.
This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, “pretty” and “ugly.” And it’s also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.
Why I'm Excited: I like contemporary stand alone novels and think this one sounds great. But mostly, I love the cover and love this author interview about the cover.
The List comes out April 1... the same week as I Hunt Killers AND Black Heart (next week's WOW), so if I completely disappear the first week in April... that's why.
