Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine!
I have two WoW books this week:
The Mark by Jen Nadol (January 19th from Bloomsbury)
“Sixteen-year old Cassie Renfield has seen the mark since forever: a glow around certain people as if a candle were held behind their back.
The one time she pointed it out taught her she shouldn’t do it again, so Cassie has kept quiet, considering its rare appearances odd, but insignificant. Until she watches a man die. Mining her memories, Cassie realizes she can see a person’s imminent death. Now how or where, only when: today.
Cassie searches her past, her philosophy lessons, even her new boyfriend for answers, always careful to keep her secret. How does the mark work? Why her? Most importantly, if you know today is someone’s last, should you tell?”
This looks so amazing! Another great looking supernatural read, but I’m especially interested in this one because of the last part of that summary: “if you know today is someone’s last, should you tell?” Oooo.
Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt (Disney Hyperion, March 2010)
“When a well-dressed woman steps out of a bubble and wants to know if you’d like to become a substitute princess, do you
C) say yes?
For Desi Bascomb, who’s been longing for some glamour in her Idaho life, the choice is a definite C). Desi has a rare ability: with the help of “Royal Rouge,” she can temporarily transform into the exact look-alike of any princess who needs her subbing services. Dream come true, right?
Well, Desi soon discovers that subbing involves a lot more than wearing a tiara and waving at cameras…. In this winning debut, one girl’s dream of glamour transforms into the desire to make a positive impact. And an impact Desi makes, one royal fiasco at a time.”
I love the cover of this book! It is just too cute… Very cute plot as well, very like Princess Diaries, but with a little twist. I like the idea of substitute princesses. 🙂
