Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Wednesday is my absolute favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.
Expected publication: September 9th 2014 by Amulet Books
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Emmeline knows she’s not supposed to explore the woods outside her settlement. The enemy that wiped out half her people lurks there, attacking at night and keeping them isolated in an unfamiliar land with merciless winters. Living with the shame of her grandmother’s insubordination, Emmeline has learned to keep her head down and her quick tongue silent.
When the settlement leader asks for her hand in marriage, it’s an opportunity for Emmeline to wash the family slate clean—even if she has eyes for another. But before she’s forced into an impossible decision, her dreams urge her into the woods, where she uncovers a path she can’t help but follow. The trail leads to a secret that someone in the village will kill to protect. Her grandmother followed the same path and paid the price. If Emmeline isn’t careful, she will be next.
Every time I see this cover and read the synopsis, I think to myself "Hey, I'd like to read that!" What about you? Are you interested in reading this one too?
Waaaaaaay back in December, I posted about how I am the BEST MOM EVER!!! The day has finally arrived. The One Direction concert is tonight. My daughter is SO excited, and like I knew she would, she's making her dad take her. He has promised to dance very badly and embarrass her on my behalf.
