Waiting on Wednesday {5}

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks much anticipated book release is:

As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott
Hardcover, 224 pages
Expected publication: September 15th 2011 by Dutton Juvenile

From Goodreads

What if you woke up and didn't know where you were?

What if you didn't know who you were?

And what if, when your memories started to come back--what if they didn't match the you that you're supposed to be?

Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them--and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.

Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust.

There were quite a few choices I was debating between this week for my top pick. I have a number of books which I am eagerly anticipating. Elizabeth Scott's new book has so many great things going for it though: mystery, love story, weird world! It's all there plus an amazingly fascinating and oddly beautiful cover. I have yet to read an Elizabeth Scott book but I hear great things about her work and have a few of her earlier books marked 'to-read'. Here's hoping this new story - which, if I'm not mistaken is very different from her old stuff is just as good.


  1. I like the colours on the cover and it sounds really good. Thanks it's on my list.

    Check out my WoW for the week

  2. This does sound good! I'm really interested in seeing how this one turns out!

  3. Yay, dystopian! I hadn't heard about this one, thanks so much!

  4. Love Elizabeth Scott. Can't wait for this one.
