Waiting on Wednesday (38) The Lucy Variations and Grace Doll

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

I have 2 picks for my WOW this week. One book will be released on August 20, but the other is not due out until March 2013... which seems like such a long way off.

My choices for this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selections are:


The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr

Expected publication: 2013 by Little, Brown BFYR

Synopsis from Goodreads:
A once-promising concert pianist now believes that at 16 her best years are behind her — a belief that everyone she knows seems to agree with, until she meets her brother's attractive new piano instructor.

Why I Want To Read It:
I recently finished reading Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez, and this seems to have the same sort of young musical prodigy theme going. Even though there isn't much to the synopsis, it still sounds interesting.

Grace Doll by Jennifer Laurens

Paperback, 220 pages
Expected publication: August 20th 2012 by Grove Creek Publishing

Synopsis From Goodreads:
Grace Doll had everything a girl could want: Fame. Fortune. Beauty.

Everything except, of course, her freedom. So when a powerful movie producer forces an experimental treatment on Grace--one that's purported to make beauty immortal--she stages her own death to escape him.

With the help of trusted friends, Grace slips into hiding. She's forever flawless, forever young and forever pursued by her past.

But when a stranger arrives on her doorstep, holding the key to a life she thought she'd left behind, Grace must decide between the safety she's known... and embracing the role she was born to play.

Why I Want To Read It:
The synopsis sounds very intriguing, and it's different than Jennifer's other books. I enjoyed reading A Season of Eden and Overprotected, so I hope I like this one too!

What are you waiting on this week?
