One Tiny Lie

By K.A. Tucker

From Goodreads.com:

Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling her parents’ tragic death and Kacey’s self-destructive phase with strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised she would…and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every action.

Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?

As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.

Why I Can’t Wait: 

Ten Tiny Breaths was the first new adult book I ever read, and quite frankly it kind of spoiled me on the genre.  The book was fascinating, well-written, and emotional.  I was SO excited when I heard the author was putting out another book from the sister, Livie’s point of view.  I think this book has a lot of potential to be just as amazing as the first book was.  Needless to say, this is one that I CAN NOT WAIT for!

So, what book are YOU waiting on?

Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday weekly event that spotlights upcoming-releases that bloggers are most excited about.  This week’s I-can’t-wait book is: The Impossibility of Tomorrow by Avery Williams.  The Impossibility of Tomorrow will be published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers on June 4, 2013.

iotThe Impossibility of Tomorrow
(Incarnation #2)
By Avery Williams

The immortal Seraphina is forced to face the darkness of her past—and risk losing the love of her life—in this second novel in the Incarnation series.

Seraphina has been living for centuries, thanks to a special method of alchemy, but only recently has she really felt alive. She’s finally broken free from her controlling boyfriend, Cyrus, and after years of swapping bodies to preserve her immortality, is happily settled into a life worth sticking with. Because in this life, she has Noah.

But Noah might not be as trustworthy as he seems. After he delivers an ominous message that could only come from Cyrus, Sera is worried that her new friends and family will find out her secret. And as her suspicions extend beyond Noah, Sera is forced to wonder about her new friends as well: Could her old coven be disguising themselves right under her nose?

Will Sera have to move to another body—and take another life—or can she find a way to keep what she’s got, forever?

Why I Can’t Wait: 

In The Alchemy of Forever, we meet a girl who was born in Italy during the middle ages, who was killed at a young age.  But Cyrus, a young boy whom she liked was able to use alchemy to allow their spirits to inhabit other bodies, thus allowing them to live forever.  But Serephina over the years has come to realize that living forever comes at a great price: one that she isn’t willing to make anymore.  But when an event happens she can’t control, Serephina finds herself in a body of a young girl — and finds herself falling in love.  The book ended on a cliffhanger — her love (Noah) may be inhabited by Cyrus, and Sera has to begin to sort through what is going on.  I fell in love with the first book and can’t wait to see what happens next!
