Waiting on Wednesday (21)

WoW is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

Glimmerglass by Jenna Black (St. Martin's Griffin, 5/25/10)
Dana Hathaway doesn’t know it yet, but she’s in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, Dana decides she’s had it with being her mother’s keeper, so she packs her bags and heads to stay with her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl—she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.

Soon, she finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone wants something from her, even her newfound friends and family. Suddenly, life with her alcoholic mom doesn't sound half bad, and Dana would do anything to escape Avalon and get back home. Too bad both her friends and her enemies alike are determined not to let her go . . .

All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab (Delacorte, 1/12/10)
Carly: She was sweet. Smart. Self-destructive. She knew the secrets of Brighton Day School’s most privileged students. Secrets that got her killed.

Neily: Dumped by Carly for a notorious bad boy, Neily didn’t answer the phone call she made before she died. If he had, maybe he could have helped her. Now he can’t get the image of her lifeless body out of his mind.
Audrey: She’s the reason Carly got tangled up with Brighton’s fast crowd in the first place, and now she regrets it—especially since she’s convinced the police have put the wrong person in jail. Audrey thinks the murderer is someone at Brighton, and she wants Neily to help her find out who it is.
As reluctant allies Neily and Audrey dig into their shared past with Carly, her involvement with Brighton’s dark goings-on comes to light. But figuring out how Carly and her killer fit into the twisted drama will force Audrey and Neily to face hard truths about themselves and the girl they couldn’t save.


  1. I am waiting on both of these too. I don't know how I am going to manage to read all of the amazing books coming out in 2010. Great picks!

  2. Whoa! The cover for Gimmerglass is amazing! And it sounds interesting as well :)

  3. More great picks this week! Both have such intriguing covers, especially Glimmerglass. They both sound awesome - 2010 doesn't feel so long away anymore!

  4. Both sound amazing! And both have amazing covers. I'm more excited for All Unquiet Things though. I get shivers just reading the synopsis. Great picks!

  5. I can't wait for both of these! Great picks! AND...OMG! You have Gone? I'm so jealous! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

  6. I am such a sucker for a novel with faeries in, so Glimmerglass is definitely going on my list.

  7. Hadn't heard of either of these. Don't know if All Unquiet Things is something I want to read, but I love the cover. It's disturbing.
    There may be something wrong with me.


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
