Waiting On Wednesday (8)

And yet another meme again. ^^

My review will be up later (still writing, sorry!) so for now I'm going to do this meme. Like last week, I am highlighting books for release next year. Geez, what's with all the awesome books coming out 2011? Why not now? XD

Title: You Against Me by Jenny Downham
Release Date: 2nd December 2010
Summary (From Goodreads):

If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother's been accused of a terrible crime and you're the main witness, then you banish all doubt and defend him. Isn't that what families do? When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her at a party, his world of work and girls begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the crime, but says he didn't do it, her world of revision, exams and fitting in at a new school begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide. Brave and unflinching, this is a novel of extraordinary skillfulness and almost unbearable tension. It's a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all it's a book about love - for one's family and for another.

Title: Memento Nora by Angie Smibert
Release Date: July 2011
Summary (From Goodreads):

Nora, the popular girl and happy consumer, witnesses a horrific bombing on a shopping trip with her mother. In Nora’s near-future world, terrorism is so commonplace that she can pop one little white pill to forget and go on like nothing ever happened. However, when Nora makes her first trip to a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, she learns what her mother, a frequent forgetter, has been frequently forgetting. Nora secretly spits out the pill and holds on to her memories. The memory of the bombing as well as her mother’s secret and her budding awareness of the world outside her little clique make it increasingly difficult for Nora to cope. She turns to two new friends, each with their own reasons to remember, and together they share their experiences with their classmates through an underground comic. They soon learn, though, they can’t get away with remembering.

I am so very excited for You Against Me. There's something about it that makes me want to read the book. I know its not gonna be a light read, but I am very much looking forward to getting a copy! Memento Nora's cover is a bit... off (better cover please!) but I like the premise of the story.

So what books are you waiting for this week? ^^


  1. You Against Me is a new title and I love the premise, definitely going on my wish list. I also am anxious for Memento Nora as I love the futuristic setting and the sci-fi plot.

  2. Memento Nora = dystopia. Innaresting. :P

  3. You Against Me sounds awesome. I'm putting it on my list- can't wait. Great picks.

  4. I haven't heard of You Against Me. It sounds very interesting.
