Waiting on Wednesday #29: Vanishing Girls & Like It Never Happened

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



This week, I'm waiting on...


Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver
Number of Pages: 368
Expected publication: March 10th 2015 by HarperCollins
Genre: YA - Contemporary > Mystery Thriller



New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver delivers a gripping story about two sisters inexorably altered by a terrible accident.

Dara and Nick used to be inseparable, but that was before the accident that left Dara's beautiful face scarred and the two sisters totally estranged. When Dara vanishes on her birthday, Nick thinks Dara is just playing around. But another girl, nine-year-old Madeline Snow, has vanished, too, and Nick becomes increasingly convinced that the two disappearances are linked. Now Nick has to find her sister, before it's too late.

In this edgy and compelling novel, Lauren Oliver creates a world of intrigue, loss, and suspicion as two sisters search to find themselves, and each other.

I just noticed on goodreads today that Lauren Oliver will be having new book out in 2015 . I am super excited to read it. Doesn't it sound amazing?

Like It Never Happened 
by Emily Adrian
Number of Pages: 368 pages
Expected publication: June 2nd 2015 by Dial
Genre: YA - Contemporary


Stereotypes, sexuality, and destructive rumors collide in this smart YA novel for fans of Sara Zarr’s Story of a Girl, Siobhan Vivian’s The List, and E. Lockhart’s The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks.

When Rebecca Rivers lands the lead in her school’s production of The Crucible, she gets to change roles in real life, too. She casts off her old reputation, grows close with her four rowdy cast-mates, and kisses the extremely handsome Charlie Lamb onstage. Even Mr. McFadden, the play’s critical director, can find no fault with Rebecca.

Though “The Essential Five” vow never to date each other, Rebecca can’t help her feelings for Charlie, leaving her both conflicted and lovestruck. But the on and off-stage drama of the cast is eclipsed by a life-altering accusation that threatens to destroy everything…even if some of it is just make believe.

What book(s) are YOU waiting on this Wednesday?

    1. I feel the same way Dana! ^_^ And I love contemporary! This year actually was my year for contemporaries since I read those most. Hopefully next year I'll get into more fantasy. ;)
