"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm waiting on...
Buzz Kill by Beth Fantaskey
* Book will be released May 6, 2014
Check out the description from Barnes & Noble:
"Putting the dead in deadlineTo Bee or not to Bee? When the widely disliked Honeywell Stingers football coach is found murdered, 17-year-old Millie is determined to investigate. She is chasing a lead for the school newspaper – and looking to clear her father, the assistant coach, and prime suspect.
Millie's partner is gorgeous, smart—and keeping secretsMillie joins forces with her mysterious classmate Chase who seems to want to help her even while covering up secrets of his own.
She’s starting to get a reputation…without any of the benefits.Drama—and bodies—pile up around Millie and she chases clues, snuggles Baxter the so-ugly-he’s-adorable bassett hound, and storms out of the world’s most awkward school dance/memorial mash-up. At least she gets to eat a lot of pie.
Best-selling author Beth Fantaskey’s funny, fast-paced blend of Clueless and Nancy Drew is a suspenseful page-turner that is the best time a reader can have with buried weapons, chicken clocks, and a boy who only watches gloomy movies…but somehow makes Millie smile. Bee-lieve it."
This looks like it’ll be an interesting/funny mystery. I like mysteries that aren’t all serious and CSI like so this looks like it could be a great book for me.

Half Bad by Sally Green
* Spoilers are highlighted like so :)
* Read via NetGalley for Review.
3 gnomes and a gnome hat out of 5 gnomes
I liked this book but wow is it weird to read at first. It starts with a different point of view that takes some getting used to. Plus you don’t learn the main character’s name for quite a while.
Once you get into the groove of the weird tense changes and how the story is set up then you’ll be asking tons of questions both good and bad. Questions like, who is that and what the heck is going on?
The whole concept of White witches and Black witches is intriguing. The main character Nathan being essentially half good/half evil is what the whole book hinges on. His story and the story of his messed up family is kind of like a train wreck you just can’t look away from it.
I liked the ending but it was a bit odd the choice he made since he’s essentially obsessed with this girl the whole book but doesn’t go and get her from the evil-ish lady right away. If you like new takes on witches you should definitely check out this book.
