Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday has become my 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: July 21st 2015 by Viking Books for Young Readers

Synopsis from Goodreads:

We Were Liars meets Heist Society in a riveting debut!

Seventeen-year-old Violet’s entire life has revolved around one thing: becoming Erica Silverman, an heiress kidnapped at age five and never seen again. Violet’s father, the best con man in Las Vegas, has a plan, chilling in its very specific precision. Violet shares a blood type with Erica; soon, thanks to surgery and blackmail, she has the same face, body, and DNA. She knows every detail of the Silvermans’ lives, as well as the PTSD she will have to fake around them. And then, when the time is right, she “reappears”—Erica Silverman, brought home by some kind of miracle. But she is also Violet, and she has a job: Stay long enough to steal the Silverman Painting, an Old Master legendary in the Vegas crime world. Walking a razor’s edge, calculating every decision, not sure sometimes who she is or what she is doing it for, Violet is an unforgettable heroine, and Pretending to be Erica is a killer debut.

This sounds intriguing! I think I first came across this book in 2012, so I've been waiting to read it for quite a while! And on a shallow note, I love that cover.

What are you waiting on this week?

  9. That sounds so cool! Normally I'm not a fan of this kind of book, but I think it would be interesting to read about her faking her identity.

  22. Hi Sandra,

    Saw your comment on my blog. I am horrible at commenting. It is part of my bookish resolutions at the end of the year pretty much every year. It's something I am actively working on and do promise to make more of an effort. I am going to try to do it first thing in the evenings after work to see it helps. I'll be sure to stop by more often and I do thank you for stopping by my blog.
