Sneaking Around Goodreads (2)

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 |
'Sneaking Around Goodreads' is a showcase of a book or two in which is found from Goodreads.com. Each book is talked about briefly, usually about the cover and the plot. Books posted on here are books that are on my wish-list. Not all of the books are pre-released.


The Weight of Bones
by Janet Gurtler

“For the first time in my life, I didn’t feel envy…”

Tess is the exact opposite of her beautiful, athletic sister. And that’s okay. Kristina is the sporty one, Tess is the smart one, and they each have their place. Until Kristina is diagnosed with cancer. Suddenly Tess is the center of the popular crowd, everyone eager for updates. There are senior boys flirting with her. Yet the smiles of her picture-perfect family are cracking and her sister could be dying. Now Tess has to fill a new role: the strong one. Because if she doesn’t hold it together, who will?


Thoughts: The plot and premise seem really interesting and the cover looks creepy, in a good way. Can't wait to see how Tess will develop in the story!



The Lucky Kind
by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

High school junior Nick Brandt is intent on getting a girlfriend, and Eden Reiss is the one that he wants. He has exactly four semesters to get the girl, but when the phone rings on an otherwise ordinary Tuesday night, life for Nick and his parents will never be the same. What had been a seemingly idyllic home life has become something else entirely. But with this shake-up comes a newfound confidence for Nick; he's become a bolder version of himself, no longer afraid to question his parents, and no longer afraid to talk to Eden.

Thoughts: Alyssa is an amazing writer so I look forward to this one! The plot seems very intense and I want to know what makes Nick's 'ordinary' life change. Can't wait for this one as well!
