Waiting on Wednesday {29}

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where bloggers post about much-awaited releases!

Title: 3:59
Author: Gretchen McNeil
Release Date: September 17th 2013
Publisher: Balzer & Bray
Age Group: Young Adult
Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. Her parents are divorcing, her boyfriend Nick has grown distant, and her physics teacher has it in for her. When she's betrayed by the two people she trusts most, Josie thinks things can't get worse.
Until she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time—3:59 a.m.
Jo's life is everything Josie wants: she's popular, her parents are happily married, and Nick adores her. It all seems real, but they're just dreams, right? Josie thinks so, until she wakes one night to a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror – Jo.
Josie and Jo realize that they are doppelgängers living in parallel universes that overlap every twelve hours at exactly 3:59. Fascinated by Jo's perfect world, Josie jumps at the chance to jump through the portal and switch places for a day.
But Jo’s world is far from perfect. Not only is Nick not Jo's boyfriend, he hates her. Jo's mom is missing, possibly insane. And at night, shadowy creatures feed on human flesh.
By the end of the day, Josie is desperate to return to her own life. But there’s a problem: Jo has sealed the portal, trapping Josie in this dangerous world. Can she figure out a way home before it’s too late?
From master of suspense Gretchen McNeil comes a riveting and deliciously eerie story about the lives we wish we had – and how they just might kill you.
I want this because parallel universes! And a sorta kinda 'evil twin' trope, yes? Plus, I've heard nothing but great things about Gretchen McNeil. 

Title: Find Me
Author: Romily Bernard
Release Date: September 24th 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
Age Group: Young Adult
“Find Me.”
These are the words written on Tessa Waye’s diary. The diary that ends up with Wick Tate. But Tessa’s just been found . . . dead.
Wick has the right computer-hacking skills for the job, but little interest in this perverse game of hide-and-seek. Until her sister Lily is the next target.
Then Griff, trailer-park boy next door and fellow hacker, shows up, intent on helping Wick. Is a happy ending possible with the threat of Wick’s deadbeat dad returning, the detective hunting him sniffing around Wick instead, and a killer taunting her at every step?
Foster child. Daughter of a felon. Loner hacker girl. Wick has a bad attitude and sarcasm to spare.
But she’s going to find this killer no matter what.
Because it just got personal.
A mystery thriller that involves a hacker?! OH YES. I've read mixed reviews for this one but I still want to give it a try.


  1. I loved 'Ten' by Gretchen McNeil, so I'm excited for 3:59! It sounds like it's going to be creepy and awesome!
    Find Me sounds so good too! I haven't read a good thriller in a while, so I'm hoping this one will be good!
    Great picks :)

  2. 3:59 was my WoW pick couple of weeks ago but I haven't seen Find Me yet. It looks awesome! Great picks

  3. I love the covers on both of these :) They both look really interesting as well, Thanks for Sharing :)

  4. Find Me is really good if you like thrillers! And I CANNOT WAIT for 3:59. I need to get a copy once it comes out because I have spent way to much money on pre-orders lately. But Gretchen McNeil is such an amazing writer. I loved TEN. Great picks, Kazhy :D

Also, I appreciate the thought but this is now an award- and tag-free zone :D
