Waiting On Wednesday #7 (9/10/14)

Waiting On WednesdayHey everyone. It’s another Waiting On Wednesday post. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme created and hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. where on Wednesdays, book blogger share what book they’re eagerly waiting on. I have two books I can’t wait to read.

EvidenceMy first selection: 
Evidence of Things Not Seen by Lindsey Lane
Release Date: September 16th, 2014
Published By: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mystery, Paranormal, Science Fiction
Purchase: Amazon / Barnes and Noble / Book Depository
 
Goodreads Summary:
When high school junior Tommy Smythe goes missing, everyone has a theory about what happened to him. Tommy was adopted, so maybe he ran away to find his birth parents. He was an odd kid, often deeply involved in his own thoughts about particle physics, so maybe he just got distracted and wandered off. He was last seen at a pull-out off the highway, so maybe someone drove up and snatched him. Or maybe he slipped into a parallel universe. Tommy believes that everything is possible, and that until something can be proven false, it is possibly true. So as long as Tommy’s whereabouts are undetermined, he could literally be anywhere.

Told in a series of first-person narratives from people who knew Tommy and third-person chapters about people who find the things Tommy left behind—his red motorbike, his driving goggles, pages from his notebook—Particles explores themes of loneliness, connectedness, and the role we play in creating our own realities.

 
Why I Can’t Wait:
I’m excited for Evidence of Things Not Seen for a variety of reasons. I’m interested in the mystery of Tommy, where exactly he is and how he got there. I think it’s interesting that Tommy believes that without proof, anything is possible, including his being in a parallel universe. 
 
I love first person narratives and third person chapters. The intertwining sounds like it could really impact the story. I love stories with a variety of point of views because it seems wide spread. The themes of loneliness, connectedness and our own realities are all something that I can relate to and find fascinating.
 

perfectionistsMy second choice is:
The Perfectionists by Sara Shepard
Release Date: October 7th, 2014
Published By: HarperCollins
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mystery
Purchase: Amazon / Barnes and Noble / Book Depository
 
Goodreads Summary:
From the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling series Pretty Little Liars comes a thrilling new novel about five perfect girls who are framed for a murder they didn’t commit. 

In Beacon Heights, Washington, five girls—Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker—know that you don’t have to be good to be perfect. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they realize that they all hate Nolan Hotchkiss, who’s done terrible things to each of them. They come up with the perfect way to kill him—a hypothetical murder, of course. It’s just a joke…until Nolan turns up dead, in exactly the way they planned. Only, they didn’t do it. And unless they find the real killer, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them. 

From Sara Shepard, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Pretty Little Liars series, comes another story of dark secrets, shocking twists, and what happens when five beautiful girls will do anything to hide the ugly truth.

 
Why I Can’t Wait:
I’ve read exactly one book by Sara Shepard, the first Pretty Little Liars book. It’s not hard or complicated reading, it’s easy to breeze through and it’s not very challenging. With that said, so far I really enjoy Sara Shepard’s books and this series sounders like it would be great for me to read.
 
It’s similar to Pretty Little Liars in that it involves five girls who are brought together by one thing, in this case, someone they all hate. I think it’s interesting how they plan a hypothetical murder because although people may not like someone, they generally don’t go and plan to hypothetically kill them because of it. This books makes me curious about who actually killed Nolan.

Those are my picks, what are yours? 🙂
