Choker by Elizabeth Woods
Release Date: January 4th, 2011 by Simon & Schuster
S u m m a r y :
Sixteen-year-old Cara Lange has been a loner ever since she moved away from her best and only friend, Zoe, years ago. She eats lunch with the other girls from the track team, but they're not really her friends. Mostly she spends her time watching Ethan Gray from a distance, wishing he would finally notice her, and avoiding the popular girls who call her "Choker" after a humiliating incident in the cafeteria. Then one day Cara comes home to find Zoe waiting for her. Zoe's on the run from problems at home, and Cara agrees to help her hide. With her best friend back, Cara's life changes overnight. Zoe gives her a new look and new confidence, and next thing she knows, she's getting invited to parties and flirting with Ethan. Best of all, she has her BFF there to confide in.

But just as quickly as Cara's life came together, it starts to unravel. A girl goes missing in her town, and everyone is a suspect—including Ethan. Worse still, Zoe starts behaving strangely, and Cara begins to wonder what exactly her friend does all day when she's at school. You're supposed to trust your best friend no matter what, but what if she turns into a total stranger?

Reason for waiting:
The cover is gorgeous and the synopsis sounds so good! What is Zoe up to? What's going on?! So many questions to wonder! Also, I really like the name Zoe :)

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Release Date: January 11th, 2011 by Razorbill
S u m m a r y :
Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.

Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone--one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship--tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.

Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.

Reason for waiting:
I read the first chapter for this book MONTHS ago! And I absolutely fell in love! I've been itching to know what happens next! But I never got a copy for review. I know that sounds bratty but seriously, I've been needing to know what happens. I'm so excited it's almost released so I can finally find out what happens! If you've read the first chapter, there isn't anything for me to say as far as why I'm waiting for this. It's just... epic! Epic-ness waiting to happen!

What are you waiting for?


  1. Awesome picks! I can say for sure that AUT is amazing, I loved that book! Choker sounds interesting too, =)

  2. I'm definitely waiting for those two, they are both high on my list to read this year.
