"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.
 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:

Twelve years ago, Gretchen, her twin sister, and her brother went looking for a witch in the forest. They found something. Maybe it was a witch, maybe a monster, they aren’t sure—they were running too fast to tell. Either way, Gretchen’s twin sister was never seen again.  
Years later, after being thrown out of their house, Gretchen and Ansel find themselves in Live Oak, South Carolina, a place on the verge of becoming a ghost town. They move in with Sophia Kelly, a young and beautiful chocolatier owner who opens not only her home, but her heart to Gretchen and Ansel. 
Yet the witch isn’t gone—it’s here, lurking in the forests of Live Oak, preying on Live Oak girls every year after Sophia Kelly’s infamous chocolate festival. But Gretchen is determined to stop running from witches in the forest, and start fighting back. Alongside Samuel Reynolds, a boy as quick with a gun as he is a sarcastic remark, Gretchen digs deeper into the mystery of not only what the witch is, but how it chooses its victims. Yet the further she investigates, the more she finds herself wondering who the real monster is, and if love can be as deadly as it is beautiful. 
Jackson Pearce is hilarious and so are her books.  But while they are funny, the books also carry a poignancy which is beautiful.  Sweetly, Pearce's latest book, is a companion novel to her 2010 book Sisters Red.  As with Sisters Red, Sweetly is a re-telling of a beloved children's story, Hansel and Gretel.  It is a modernized, but if it's anything like Sisters Red, it will maintain a feel of wonder and old world.  I'm excited to read it and so should you!  Check out the video below for more information from Ms. Pearce herself.


  1. I love Jackson, she's so hilarious and cute!:) I have Sisters Red in my TBR pile, but I didn't have the chance to read it yet. But it sounds awesome, and Sweetly too! I love modernized children stories!<3

  2. Love the cover art! Thanks for posting the video, I enjoyed watching her talk about her own book. & thanks for making this your WoW, I didn't know she had another book coming out but it's definitely on my list now!
