The Weekly Wanting (10)

Happy Sunday, everybody! Nothing much happened this week, other than I finally set a deadline to finish the first draft of my YA novel tentatively titled More Than Normal. My first draft needs to be done by September, and if it is, I get to do something ridiculously decadent and expensive. Hooray! I also saw Brave yesterday, and it's a thinker. I may have to review it to get a better grip on how I reacted to it.

Only one book today for the wanting. Still recovering from Book Expo swag overdose!

Genre: YA, Contemporary
Cover Snark: Personal problems in the side mirror may be larger than they appear.
The Story: A pampered, popular girl returns to her hometown after a drunk driving accident the previous year and discovers that not everyone is willing to welcome her back with open arms.
Why Do I Want It? I've been it positively reviewed all over the internets and was caught by the story of a queen bee who's fallen from grace.

  And that's it! What books are you desperately wanting this week?


  1. I just met the author at the Chicago Printer's Row Lit Fest - it was the first I'd heard of the book, but I was drawn in by the presence. This is o my list to read, too.
