Waiting on Wednesday: So Close to You (5)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagarly anticipating.

For my fifth WoW post, I've chosen a book that reminds me of one of my favorite 2012 releases, Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris.





Expected publication: July 10th 2012.
Publisher: HarperTeen
Hardcover, 310 pages

Lydia Bentley has heard stories about the Montauk Project all her life: stories about the strange things that took place at the abandoned military base near her home and the people who've disappeared over the years. Stories about people like her own great-grandfather.

When Lydia stumbles into a portal that transports her to a dangerous and strange new reality, she discovers that all the stories she's ever heard about the Montauk Project are true, and that she's in the middle of one of the most dangerous experiments in history.

Alongside a darkly mysterious boy she is wary to trust, Lydia begins to unravel the secrets surrounding the Project. But the truths behind these secrets force her to question all her choices—and if Lydia chooses wrong, she might not save her family but destroy them... and herself.





Doesn't it sound a lot like Unraveling? Hopefully it will be just as good. I loved Elizabeth Norris's debut so much and I have a feeling I might love this too. Plus, the cover is so gorgeous! It makes me want to dye my hair red again. 

What are you guys excited about? Leave me a link and I'll come visit.

  14. YES! That cover is totally making me crave red hair. And did I tell you I got Unraveling, but still haven't made time to read it. *sighs* Why am I so full of fail? Don't answer that. LOL

  15. Interesting. I don't know if I'd like this or not...I'm kind of tired of book summaries ending with "and with a mysterious guy" or something. LOL Crazy crazy. My sister has red hair like this though. Too pretty.

  16. *squints for a second* Oh, it does! It absolutely DOES sound a bit like Unraveling!! :D And considering how much we both loved that book, I just had to add this one to my TBR pile too! The first thing I thought when I saw that cover was that it reminded me of the twister from Wizard of Oz, but I like your comparison so much better than mine LOL :')

    Amazing pick for your WOW this week, Maja! I don't think I could ever pull of being a redhead haha, but I'm sure you definitely could! :) <3
