Waiting On Wednesday 19

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights an upcoming book release that we are eagerly anticipating.


This week I have chosen And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky. Released on the 26th July 2011.

Keek’s life was totally perfect.

Keek and her boyfriend just had their Worst Fight Ever, her best friend heinously betrayed her, her parents are divorcing, and her mom’s across the country caring for her newborn cousin, who may or may not make it home from the hospital. To top it all off, Keek’s got the plague. (Well, the chicken pox.) Now she’s holed up at her grandmother’s technologically-barren house until further notice. Not quite the summer vacation Keek had in mind.

With only an old typewriter and Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar for solace and guidance, Keek’s alone with her swirling thoughts. But one thing’s clear through her feverish haze—she’s got to figure out why things went wrong so she can put them right.

Sounds like there is a lot going on in this book and I am really looking forward to reading all about it. Loving the cover (no picture of a girl in a dress - woo hoo!) and the main character's name is awesome - Keek!

That's all for now.

  2. This actually sounds pretty cool, all it needs is a hint of romance and it would be added to my wishlist too. :) I'll have to read reviews when it comes out in July.

    Have a great week and enjoy your reading!

  6. I hadn't heard of this but it sounds really good. I feel sorry for her, getting chicken pox as a teen. I thought it was bad enough as a kid but it would be worse in high school. This looks like a really promising story. Great pick!

  28. That is a great cover. I love covers that don't feature people. Leaves the characters up to the personal imagination :) This also sounds like a good read so I'm adding it to the TBR!
