Waiting on Wednesday: Dream a Little Dream and I Am Her Revenge

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!

This week's picks:

Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

Goodreads' description:

"Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yep, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially this one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys perform dark magic rituals. The really weird thing is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where’s she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But they seem to know things about her in real life that they couldn’t possibly know, which is mystifying. Then again, Liv could never resist a good mystery. . . ."

I found Gier's time-travel trilogy pretty entertaining, so I'm interested in seeing what she does with this next YA series of hers. I'm not crazy about the cover, though — it's too "bubble-gum" frothy for my tastes. Also, fingers crossed that the premise of Liv seeing these boys in her dream is executed in a fresh way...I'm always a bit leery of the whole dream-connects-to-reality trope.

I Am Her Revenge by Meredith Moore

Goodreads' description:

"The book is about a girl named Vivian who was raised with one goal: to exact vengeance on the man who broke her mother’s heart two decades earlier. Enrolled at an English boarding school, Vivian targets an innocent senior named Ben as part of the revenge plot. But, as the plan is set into motion, Vivian 'starts to uncover secrets so dark and deadly that they threaten to unravel the very being that Mother worked so hard to create.'" 

Ohhhh, the premise of this one sounds dark and twisty! Which is even better when it's paired with an English boarding school setting. Also, is it just me, or does the mom sound kinda creepy?

What books are you waiting for?


  1. After being super disappointed by Mortal Danger, I'd kind of like to find a revenge plot that delivers. I'll have to look into this one! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Danya, thanks so much for making I AM HER REVENGE a WoW pick! Can't wait for 2015. :)

    1. No problem, looking forward to reading it! Thanks for stopping by :)

  3. OMG that cover!! I totally want to read this now!

  4. Oh, I definitely want to read I Am Her Revenge! It sounds really, really good. And I LOVE the cover. (Oh, and I must confess to totally liking the bubble-gummy cover of the first book too!) Great picks :)


I love comments, so post away!
