Waiting On Wednesday | 07

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 with 18 comments
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, which features upcoming releases that I am anticipating the most! There are so many good books coming out, but here is what I am obsessing over at the moment:

by Kelly Thompson

   Separated by thousands of miles, two young women are about to realize their extraordinary powers which will bind their lives together in ways they can't begin to understand.
   Protecting others. Maintaining order. Being good. These are all important things for Bonnie Braverman, even if she doesn't understand why. Confined to a group home since she survived the car accident that killed both her parents, Bonnie has lived her life until now in self-imposed isolation and silence; but when an opportunity presents itself to help another girl in need, Bonnie has to decide whether to actually use the power she has long suspected she has. Power that frightens her.
   Across the country, Lola LeFever is inheriting her own power by sending her mother over a cliff...literally. For Lola the only thing that matters is power; getting it, taking it, and eliminating anyone who would get in the way of her pursuit of it. With her mother dead and nothing to hold her back from the world any longer, Lola sets off to test her own powers on anyone unfortunate enough to cross her. And Lola's not afraid of anything.
   One girl driven to rescue, save, and heal; the other driven to punish, destroy, and kill.
   And now they're about to meet.

Why I Can't Wait To Read This
Well, first off: it's a superhero novel!!! Read the above description - it sounds so good! I stumbled upon this book by accident, after creating an account on to help fund a CD for one of my favorite YouTube musicians, Reina Del Cid. Kickstarter is basically a site where you can help fund large-scale projects by making a donation in the amount you choose (like $5, $15, $25, etc.) and you also get something in return (such as the finished product). It's a good way for people to raise money necessary to publish a book, make a CD, produce a film, etc.

Anywho, I read the description of this book, and found that the author put up the first ten chapters on her blog. They were amazing, and I can't wait to read more! I pledged $20 for her project, which means that I'll be getting a copy of the finished book, a bookmark, some postcards, and my name in the thank you pages of the book and the website. I love that I get to help out the author directly, and that she also updates us on how the project is doing. It somehow feels more personal this way than just buying the finished book.

I am very excited for this book to come out!!
