Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It lets us spotlight what upcoming books we can't wait for!

 Here is what I am waiting on:

Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Release Date: July 12th, 2011

Summary via Amazon:
Someone's been a very bad zombie.
Kate Grable is horrified to find out that the football coach has given the team steroids. Worse yet, the steriods are having an unexpected effect, turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless flesh-eating zombies. No one is safe--not her cute crush Aaron, not her dorky brother, Jonah . . . not even Kate! She's got to find an antidote--before her entire high school ends up eating each other. So Kate, her best girlfriend, Rocky, and Aaron stage a frantic battle to save their town  . . . and stay hormonally human. 

Look at that cover! How could you not want to read a book with a cover like that?!?! This book just sounds simply amazing. I have read a couple of zombie books lately and have found myself really enjoying them and I can't see why this one would be any different. The summary makes it sound like a quick and fun read!


****************************************************

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: September 27th, 2011

Summary via Amazon:
Three days after a tragic accident in New England, Mara Dyer wakes up in a hospital, with no memory of how she got there. Of how her three friends died. Or how she is still alive. 

Eight weeks later, Mara is in Miami, and is almost living a normal life. She starts at a new school. She makes new friends. And she meets Noah Shaw. He's arrogant, brilliant, beautiful--and Mara falls for him, despite her friends' warnings and her better instincts. 

But as they grow closer, things happen that make her think there's more to the accident that killed her friends. More to the nightmares and hallucinations she's been having since they died. And more to Noah than he led her to believe. 

Then two more people connected to her die. Something is happening to Mara, and the truth is buried in her own mind. If she can uncover it, she might be able to save her family. Her first love. Her future. She can try to be normal. 

But if she can't, she'll have to become something more. 

 Another amazing cover! I have been hearing about this one for quite a while and the more I hear the more I want to read it. It sounds so fascinating!


What books are you anxiously awaiting???

  4. Oh man, I just discovered how much of a book cover snob I am! I've seen Bad Taste In Boys featured in other blogs but never read a synopsis until now so I figured it was a romance novel which is not my cup of tea. Little did I know it was about zombies and totally up my alley. *hangs head in shame* lol

  7. Nice picks, you know, I never really see the "in" on the cover of Bad Taste in Boys, so for the longest time I thought the book was called "Bad Taste Boys"
