Waiting on Wednesday (14)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It showcases the books we can't wait to read!  Link up, check out which books people are eagerly anticipating, follow some new blogs, and comment on their picks.

Wild Cards (Wild Cards #1)
After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.

Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain--people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?

  5. I have heard such great things about Simone Elkeles' work but have yet to read anything by her. I picked up Wild Cards at BEA and am excited to get started. If I like it I will probably go back and read her Perfect Chemistry series. Anyway, this is a great pick! I hope you love it when you read it!

  7. I'm not a big Simone fan, but this one has me intrigued. I keep hearing the Friday Night Lights comparison and am both excited and apprehensive about it. (You can do no better than Friday Night Lights.) I snagged a copy at BEA and will definitely be checking it out!
