WOW #3

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Book bloggers present upcoming books they can’t wait to read and share their enthusiasm about new releases.



Splintered
by A.G. Howard
Published by Amulet Books
Date published:  January 1st 2013 

Synopsis: For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell -- the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll's famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers ... the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before. 
When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on. 
There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head

I know its a year away.But look at that cover.Plus it's a fairy tale retelling kinda.I also loved the Alice in wonderland movie of  '10 .



Struck (Struck #1)
by Jennifer Bosworth
Published by  Farrar, Straus and Giroux BYR
Date published:   May 8th 2012


Synopsis:Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.
Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.

awesome cover and lighting addicted chick. rad. I have been lusting for this one since august of last year

  14. Gorgeous cover for Splintered, I was actually waiting on this one. Can't believe I didn't notice that the cover was released. And as popular as Alice in Wonderland is I have actually not heard of many book retellings! Awesome pick - can't wait for the book! :)

  17. I loved Struck! It is a little darker than most YA novels these days and with fewer fluff. The heroine is a real girl, not one of those annoying self-rightous do-gooders! I hope you'll like it as much as I did!

  54. I have to admit I don't like Alice in Wonderland much. I didn't like it when I watched it when I was young, and I haven't really re-watched it.
