In the tradition of The Lovely Bones comes a haunting tale of two girls—one dead, one alive.

TATUM is the only person at school who knew the truth about the affair her best friend, Claudette, has been having with Mr. Paracini, their married teacher. And at the time, confiding in an adult seemed like the right thing to do. But now, everyone in town has turned against Tatum, painting her as a liar and a rat. As the bullying from her classmates escalates, it seems that nowhere is safe for her anymore.

MOLLY, a hitchhiker, was brutally murdered in the early 1970s, but there is no afterlife for her. Instead, she has found herself marooned with a crowd of other people who have also died tragically. Molly is able to fade back to earth for a few fleeting moments, and when she fades, she finds herself hitchhiking once again, and telling the unsuspecting drivers who stop for her things about their future that only she can see.

One foggy night, Tatum sneaks out for a drive. The teenage hitchhiker she picks up doesn’t talk much, until she suddenly turns to Tatum and says: “You’re going to die. It will hurt and you’ll be alone. And no one will help you.”

And then she disappears. As the two girls’ stories converge, Tatum and Molly will discover that they must first figure out how to help the other in order to save themselves.



Why I'm Waiting:
    Honestly I have adored everything I have read by Jeyn Roberts.  I dislike that there are books still waiting for their follow ups but that being said I always want the next book that she releases.  Her stories always have wonderfully crafted worlds with characters that have some depth to them.  Despite wanting a couple other books first I am looking forward to this one as well :)

Happy Reading! Ciao:

What are you waiting on this week? I would love to hear it! Make sure you link up your post as well so I can stop by.

Waiting on Wednesday #16 @bloomsburykids @SJMaas

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Tiffany's Pick:






Release Date: May 3, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Pages: 624
Published By: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court--but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms--and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future--and the future of a world cleaved in two.

With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.



Why I'm Waiting:
    This is one of the books that I know I will have the moment it releases, and yet I have yet to pick up the first book.  I know why am I waiting?  Well, lets just start with I don't know.  I am a fool for anything retelling (they are only slightly below mermaids and mythology).  Though maybe this one is less of a retelling and more just fantasy?  Honestly I don't know because the first one sounded like a twisted tale but I'm thinking I was wrong.  This is all why I need these books.  To clear things up and to read another novel by this phenomenal author. 

Happy Reading! Ciao:

Waiting on Wednesday #15 @catwinters

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Tiffany's Pick:






Release Date: March 8, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Retelling
Pages: 352
Published By: Amulet Books
A thrilling reimagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Steep and Thorny Way tells the story of a murder most foul and the mighty power of love and acceptance in a state gone terribly rotten.

1920s Oregon is not a welcoming place for Hanalee Denney, the daughter of a white woman and an African-American man. She has almost no rights by law, and the Ku Klux Klan breeds fear and hatred in even Hanalee’s oldest friendships. Plus, her father, Hank Denney, died a year ago, hit by a drunk-driving teenager. Now her father’s killer is out of jail and back in town, and he claims that Hanalee’s father wasn’t killed by the accident at all but, instead, was poisoned by the doctor who looked after him—who happens to be Hanalee’s new stepfather.

The only way for Hanalee to get the answers she needs is to ask Hank himself, a “haint” wandering the roads at night



Why I'm Waiting:
  I have heard awesome things about Cat Winters writing and ability to spin a captivating tale.  The fact that she is re-imagining Hamlet and twisting it up, sprouts a need to pick up this book.  I find the synopsis and the unique twists presented highly captivating.  If Winters is as good as I've heard this may be a good time to start a new author obsession.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Tiffany's Pick:






Release Date: April 19, 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Pages: 300
Published By: Month9Books, LLC
Lia Nautilus may be a Mermaid but she’s never lived in the ocean. War has ravaged the seven seas ever since the infamous Little Mermaid unleashed a curse that stripped Mer of their immortality. Lia has grown up in a secret community of land-dwelling Mer hidden among Malibu’s seaside mansions. Her biggest problems are surviving P.E. and keeping her feelings for Clay Ericson in check. Sure, he’s gorgeous in that cocky, leather jacket sort of way and makes her feel like there’s a school of fish swimming in her stomach, but getting involved with a human could put Lia's entire community at risk.

So it’s for the best that he’s dating that new girl, right? That is, until Lia finds out she isn't the only one at school keeping a potentially deadly secret. And this new girl? Her eyes are dead set on Clay, who doesn't realize the danger he's in. If Lia hopes to save him, she’ll have to get closer to Clay. Lia’s parents would totally flip if they found out she was falling for a human boy, but the more time she spends with him, the harder it is for her to deny her feelings. After making a horrible mistake, Lia will risk everything to stop Clay from falling in love with the wrong girl.



Why I'm Waiting:
  If you know me at all, you know that if it says Mermaid I am in.  Add a pretty cover and nothing will get in my way.  Emerge by Tobie Easton is one of those books.  Plus Little Mermaid curse...  Secret Lovers....  Well, there is nothing in that synopsis that say this book will be anything but EPIC!!!!!  I NEED this book in my life and on my shelf <3

Top Ten Tuesday: Music to Books


Welcome to Lady Reader's Bookstuff's Top Ten Tuesday!!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week is all about music and books.  Such an awesome mash up if you ask me!  There are so many books that I have given a song to as I read.  Honestly though ,I wouldn't know where to start with that.  I decided for this one I would give you a list of songs that I think would be kick ass as book or at least give us something to talk about. 


Songs I Would like as a Book

Familiar Taste of Poison by Halestorm

  This could be all kinds of fun.  Oh, I know that it isn't a typical message but it could be interrupted so many different ways.  Think of the mystery.  Could be done as a New Adult romance/mystery?  I don't know.  This could be a case that the video is so great that I would love to see a book pop up. 

Shatter Me by Lindsay Sterling feat. Lizzy Hale

    For sure dystopia!  Now if I have to be particular I would go with something that is like people evolving.  I know that there are many like that out now, but I think of this in a horror/dystopia way to start.  People are transforming like a butterfly...  As always there is the people that are afraid and the ones that feel this will help us for the better.

Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves

  My daughter and I always smile and sing to this song.  I kind of see it as an epic coming of age contemporary.  The journey to find yourself and overcome the stereotypes that may come with some of the choices.  Because we all know they are there but also we have to be who we are because there is no pleasing everyone.


Lose My Mind by Brett Eldredge


  I actually LOVE this song.  It's fun and the music video amuses me to no end.  This is also probably why I see this as a paranormal and possible love story.  He loves her but is she really there, or is she just a ghost/in his mind?  Maybe she is real in the end...  Maybe he drives himself crazy looking for her?

I Got the Boy by Jana Kramer


We always get happily ever after in a book.  Well we do most of the time.  However, I see this as a happily never after.  Like a failed second chance type deal.  Yes, I realize this is sad but not everyone will get their happily ever after.  So, this a contemporary with a serious tragic twist for me.

Confident by Demi Lovato


We always want confident females in the lead right?  Well what better song honestly.  I see this one as a action/paranormal read.  Possible dystopia.  I don't know, there are just so many possibilities out there.

Stand by You by Rachel Platten

Normally not a fan of songs like this.  However, I think this would make an awesome book inspired by a song with maybe a star crossed Angel/Fallen Angel take?  Maybe it's the lyrics but, we often have a mortal loving one or the other (occasionally torn between). This made me think of the two teams or one fighting for the other.

Somewhere in My Car by Keith Urban


  A New Adult or Adult book about remembering the love you lost.  Maybe this song will strike him to search her out.  Have a male lead instead of a female lead.  I know we don't typically view men as the ones that hold on, but would kind of be poetic right.

Burning House by Cam

  So another New Adult.  I know it seems the typical tale of losing someone and trying to hold on, but this song is kind of beautiful and might make the same kind of book.

Wildest Dreams by Taylor Swift


Okay, so my Mom got me in on this song.  Took a bit but I will admit that it is kind of pretty.  Would make a good New Adult Paranormal I think.  Like does she dream him, does he dream her?  Is she cheating on her all start boyfriend with him?  Is he looking to her for an escape?  Do they know each other from a past life?  Oh, the possibilities are endless....

fin...

What do you thik of my lists?  My reasons?  Any songs you think could go another way?  What about songs you would like to see as books?  If you have a list link me up and I will make sure I stop by and check yours out :)
