Hello there! Here we are once again blogging about the books we are most awaiting the release of. "Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme brought to you by the fabulous Jill over at BreakingTheSpine.
And this is what I am waiting for this week:
Title: Supergirl Mixtapes
Author: Meagan Brothers
Release Day: April 24th, 2012
Summary: (goodreads) After years of boredom in her rural South Carolina town, Maria is thrilled when her father finally allows her to visit her estranged artist mother in New York City. She’s ready for adventure, and she soon finds herself immersed in a world of rock music and busy streets, where new people and ideas lie around every concrete corner. This is the freedom she’s always longed for—and she pushes for as much as she can get, skipping school to roam the streets, visit fancy museums, and flirt with the cute clerk at a downtown record store.
But just like her beloved New York City, Maria’s life has a darker side. Behind her mother’s carefree existence are shadowy secrets, and Maria must decide just where—and with whom—her loyalty lies.
My Thoughts: This one is being released quite soon actually! I just discovered this one also from a list somewhere. I think it works for the Contemporary challenge if any of you are participating in that. Anyway, I want to see how Maria interacts with her town and then the difference when she gets to New York. I do hope both settings are developed since it would be very interesting!
The music side is also why this one caught my eye...and that kooky cover. I've lately developed a liking for contemporaries in the music scene although I am by no means a music fanatic. Only a K-pop fanatic. I listen to all genres, but yeah I get my music scene fix from books. And that is why I am looking forward to this novel.
That cover really is something. Happy reading!
