Desperatley Wanting Wednesday is a great post done weekly at Parajunkee blog, and I'm proud to present it for the first time here at Read and Whine!
Each week, there's also a new question
to be answered.
This is the question for this week:
Which do you prefer,
or stand-alone books?
I'm personally a fan of series, because it gives me more time to fall in love with a character/story!
This week I'm DESPERATELY awaiting In Honor by Jessi Kirby
Here's the description from Goodreads:
Hours after her brother’s military funeral, Honor opens the last letter Finn ever sent. In her grief, she interprets his note as a final request and spontaneously decides to go to California to fulfill it.
Honor gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn’s best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn’t seen Rusty in ages, but it’s obvious he is as arrogant and stubborn as ever—not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Despite Honor’s better judgment, the two set off together on a voyage from Texas to California. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn’s memory—but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?
Who can resist that cover? I can't. LOVE the boots!
The summary is just delectable.
Death, love, California, dry humor? Gahh! But then again, I'm probably just a sucker for the idea of scandal going on between a girl and her brothers best friend. *sigh*
The book actually has some pretty notable author recc's, which means it's GOT to be good.
A devastating loss leads to an unexpected road trip in this novel from the author of Moonglass, whose voice Sarah Dessen says “is fresh and wise, all at once.”
Sarah Dessen? Instant win.
In Honor will be released May 8th, 2012. Just in time for Summer! Can't help but fangirl over this one!
Until next time~
