Waiting on Wednesday - Amplified by Tara Kelly

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.

Ever since reading Kelly's debut novel, Harmonic Feedback, I've been on the look-out for more of her work and now I only have to wait just a little less than a week.


Check that out! Isn't the cover sexy? If it doesn't speak for itself, then.. 

When privileged 17-year-old Jasmine gets kicked out of her house, she takes what is left of her savings and flees to Santa Cruz to pursue her dream of becoming a musician. Jasmine finds the ideal room in an oceanfront house, but she needs to convince the three guys living there that she's the perfect roommate and lead guitarist for their band, C-Side. Too bad she has major stage fright and the cute bassist doesn't think a spoiled girl from over the hill can hack it. . . . In this fresh new novel by critically acclaimed author Tara Kelly, Jasmine finds out what happens when her life gets Amplified.


Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: October 25th 2011 by Henry Holt and Co.

  1. :) I can't wait for the new Elizabeth Hoyt book. A little romance this week! :)

    "Amplified" looks awesome. Kind of a different take on a YA novel.

  2. Amplified sounds sooooooooooo cool. i just love the cover and I'm looking forward to reading a book that isn't a paranormal romance. Great pick!!!

  6. I knew about Amplified and was looking forward to reading it. I didn't know about her other novel--silly me for not looking that up. Good to know. Here's my WoW.

  7. Hi there! I'm still hopping from last week's blog hop--I like to take my time. I'm giving away a copy of Amplified too--love Tara Kelly's work! Yay!

  8. I've been seeing this one around a lot lately! Only a few more days.... I haven't read anything by her. You'll have to let me know how it is :o]

    I see you've got American Psycho on your TBR list, LOL! A friend loaned me that book when I was in high school and it freaked me out!

    Easton-Ellis put the psycho in psychotic with this one! It's horrific, heinous and disgusting yet so hard to put down!
    I hope you get a chance to read it, sick as it is :o]
