Waiting on Wednesday: The Space Between Us (6)


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





Expected release: October 16th 2012
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Hardcover, 400 pages



From the author of Virtuosity, a novel about two sisters and the secrets they tell, the secrets they keep, and the secret that tears them apart.

Amelia is used to being upstaged by her charismatic younger sister, Charly. She doesn’t mind, mostly, that it always falls to her to cover for Charly’s crazy, impulsive antics. But one night, Charly's thoughtlessness goes way too far, and she lands them both in serious trouble.

Amelia's not sure she can forgive Charly this time, and not sure she wants to…but the situation is even worse than either of them realizes. Amelia has no choice but to give up everything--her friends, her future, her dream--in order to cover for Charly’s huge mistake.

Amelia doesn't understand how her sister could have done this to them both. What she doesn't know is that Charly is hiding a terrible secret—one with the potential to change everything.


I know what you're thinking and no, hell didn't freeze over and pigs haven't learned to fly just yet, but yes, I did choose a contemporary YA for my WoW post. I loved Jessica Martinez's debut, Virtuosity so much, it's one of the best contemporaries I've ever read, so can you really blame me for having October 16th circled on my calendar? Although I have a fantastic relationship with my older sister, I'm very curious about this story.

What are you guys excited about this week?
Leave me a link and I'll make sure to visit. :)

  1. Haha I'm just like you. I do enjoy contemporary YA novels but the majority of the stuff on my to-read list is Sci-Fi and Fantasy xD This book sounds interesting though. Nice pick!

  5. I can't say I'm a fan of the cover (all that pink is kind of shocking!) but I like the sound of this book. I haven't read Virtuosity yet, though I am curious to see what I will make of this. Lovely pick, Maja! :)

  10. I had to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming when I saw your pick, Maja! The vanilla-queen's evil plans to win you over are working! I love my sister to pieces so I'm always interested in a sister story too. Great pick, my lovely! :)

  12. Usually books about sisters just remind me of my annoying-sometimes-amazing older sisters, but this one sounds AMAZING! Hehe, it makes me smile that you pick a Contemporary YA for WOW this week! Since you really like Virtuosity, I guess I have to check it next time on bookstore. Excellent pick this week, dear Maja! <3

  13. I did think that when I saw this in my email...Well it does sound good...maybe her dark secret is she is a zombie slayer or something cool. Here's hoping. I am anxious to see what you think of it!

  14. I have yet to read Virtuosity, but your best stamp is making me want to!

    Stories about sisters always hit home, especially since I have so many and they are always doing things I consider unforgivable. LOL

  15. I like that there's more sister novels popping up! I'm reading Black Heart Blue atm and although I'm loving it, I just knwo I'm going to cry at the end!

  16. Jessica Martinez is so talented. I'm not a fan of Contemporary Fiction, but her 1st book, Virtuosity, was great. Awesome pick!

    Check out my WoW!

  17. hahaha, I do believe pigs ARE flying if you chose a contemporary, Maja! :p although I have to admit, you chose a FANTASTIC book. I can't wait for this one. Virtuosity was amazing.

  18. I am *tentatively* excited about this. I will be more excited once I know for sure that the "big secret" isn't something paranormal.

  19. I'm curious about this book as well but I dread reading it. It sounds very heartbreaking; all the secrets and the selfless cover ups! But I'll be on the look-out for your review, Maja :)

  20. Hey Maja! Long time no see!

    This is a really great pick for your WoW. I've seen it around and the more I see it...oh who am I kidding? I'm absolutely nuts over wanting to read it!

    Here's my WoW
