Waiting on Wednesday: Possession and Between Here & Forever

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and features books that we just can't wait to get our hands on!

The picks this week:

Possession by Elana Johnson

From the author's blog:

"In a world where rules aren't meant to be broken, fifteen-year-old Violet Schoenfeld must make a choice: control or be controlled."

Oooooh...And here's a bit more:

"...set in a brainwashed society where those gifted with mind control best join the powers that be, but one rebel girl tries to beat them at their own game..."

So many fabulous-sounding dystopian YA novels being written these days! Also that cover is breathtaking - love the symbolism and the colours and the simplicity.

Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott

Goodreads' description:

"Abby accepted that she can’t measure up to her beautiful, magnetic sister Tess a long time ago, and knows exactly what she is: Second best. Invisible.

Until the accident.

Now Tess is in a coma, and Abby’s life is on hold. It may have been hard living with Tess, but it's nothing compared to living without her.

She's got a plan to bring Tess back though, involving the gorgeous and mysterious Eli, but then Abby learns something about Tess, something that was always there, but that she’d never seen.

Abby is about to find out that truth isn't always what you think it is, and that life holds more than she ever thought it could."

I've read a few books by Scott, and my favorite so far has been Stealing Heaven. Love the cover for this new one and the description is appealing... I like that it seems to focus on the sister dynamic. Also, haven't read a lot of books that deal with people in comas, so that should be interesting. And the vibrancy of the cover is fantastic!

What books are you waiting on?


  1. Great picks! I already wanted Scott's book, but I hadn't heard about Possession until now, so I'm adding it on my wishlist :)
