Waiting on Wednesday - Wintergirls and If I Stay

There are so many books I'm waiting on, it's hard to pick just one! So, here are 2 books I can barely wait to read, in publication order:

Wintergirls
by Laurie Halse Anderson
Publication Date: March 19, 2009


Laurie Halse Anderson is the author of Speak, Fever 1793, Twisted, and Chains. She has other books but those are the ones I've read and re-read and used for book clubs and used for book talks. They make you stop. They make you think. But they never make you stop reading. Wintergirls - it's a fantabulous cover. IloveitIloveitIloveit. Here's a line:

The voice of a dead girl is waiting for me on my phone.


And here's where you can read an excerpt!

If I Stay
by Gayle Forman
Publication Date: April 2, 2009


One of my favorite reviewers, Reading Rants, mentioned this title. Reading Rants put it under her Teen Tearjerkers label along with A Time for Dancing and Before I Die, two other books that I loved and cried through. I lurv books that make me cry! I've never read Forman before so I'm looking forward to discovering a "new" author! Here's a line:

Am I dead?

And here's where you can read an excerpt!

Well, there you have it, a couple of the many books I'm looking forward to devouring!
So, what are you waiting for?
