Waiting on Wednesday (14) + HELP US!

Hey readers! Can you help us? We need YOUR help. Help for what you ask? Well, two things. We've started to do some new memes- Factual Fridays and ______ Tuesdays.

For Factual Fridays, we want you, dear readers, to ask us questions! They can be ANYTHING. Anything at all. Well no, not really. Ask questions we can answer, please. But they can be silly, or deep, or typical questions like "what is your favourite colour?" To make it worth your while, we'll give you extra points in our upcoming contest! So please, go here and ask us questions!

_______ Tuesdays, is a new meme hosted by Lauren (I know! Shocker right! Lauren doing a meme!) We need YOUR opinion on what to call the meme! We really are at a loss. If you comment and vote there, we'll also give you extra entries in our upcoming contest!

Wow, we'd better make this contest good. :P

And so, onto Waiting on Wednesday!

Split by Swati Avasthi
Publisher: Knopf BFYR
Publishing Date: March 9, 2010
Goodreads Amazon

Sixteen-Year-Old Jace Witherspoon arrives at the doorstep of his estranged brother Christian with a re-landscaped face (courtesy of his father’s fist), $3.84, and a secret.

He tries to move on, going for new friends, a new school, and a new job, but all his changes can’t make him forget what he left behind—his mother, who is still trapped with his dad, and his ex-girlfriend, who is keeping his secret.

At least so far.

Worst of all, Jace realizes that if he really wants to move forward, he may first have to do what scares him most: He may have to go back. First-time novelist Swati Avasthi has created a riveting and remarkably nuanced portrait of what happens after. After you’ve said enough, after you’ve run, after you’ve made the split—how do you begin to live again? Readers won’t be able to put this intense page-turner down.

Now doesn't that sound good? I've read books with abusive parents and in the end, the kid fights back, but never a book where it's after the kid does so! Veeery interesting. Plus, his name is Jace! I've falled in love with that name ever since I read The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare a few years back. :D

Waiting on Wednedsay is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine! What are all of your picks this week?


  1. I wanna be helpful! 8D lol

    Sounds intense but also really good!

    *MUST get around to FINLLY reading Mortal Instruments* T.T I shame the book blogging community with my lack of speed reading skeelz!

  2. OOoh, looky i got confused! o.o Um, yeah... voting now! xD

    I don't know what the meme is gonna be but how about.... Tempting Tuesdays? You could talk about stuff you've thought about reading, watching, doing, saying, whatever, and blog about it. :)

  3. Well, the only thing I can come up with at the moment is Through the Tube Tuesday. Its a little long, but I kinda like.. a lot. And it is a play on where most of the videos come from.

  4. I've fallen in lvoe with the name 'Rafeal' after reading mortal instruments haha.

  5. That sounds so cool! Great pick :)

  6. Great pick for WoW! I have a couple of questions: Have you ever been under the influence of anesthesia? If you had to own a natural-colored cow, what color would yours be? When you read the word 'test,' what immediately comes to mind?

    Good luck with your memes!


Say anything! We'd love to hear what you think. :)
