Today my WoW is Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton.
Tiny Pretty Things


Title: Tiny Pretty Things

Authors: Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

Publication Date: May 26, 2015

Series: none

Synopsis:

Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars in this soapy, drama-packed novel featuring diverse characters who will do anything to be the prima at their elite ballet school.

Gigi, Bette, and June, three top students at an exclusive Manhattan ballet school, have seen their fair share of drama. Free-spirited new girl Gigi just wants to dance—but the very act might kill her. Privileged New Yorker Bette’s desire to escape the shadow of her ballet star sister brings out a dangerous edge in her. And perfectionist June needs to land a lead role this year or her controlling mother will put an end to her dancing dreams forever. When every dancer is both friend and foe, the girls will sacrifice, manipulate, and backstab to be the best of the best.


While I don’t particularly enjoy Pretty Little Liars because it seems to drag, I really like the concept of the two books. I like seeing books that have competition in them to see how authors create their characters and make them grow. Plus, I wish I could dance and by reading this I can do it vicariously. Lastly, it seems like it might be like Dance Moms which I used to watch.
What is your WoW this week?

Today my WoW is The Third Twin by C.J. Omololu.
The Third Twin


Title: The Third Twin

Author: C.J. Omololu

Publication Date: February 28, 2015

Series: none

Synopsis:

Identical twins. Identical DNA. Identical suspects. It’s Pretty Little Liars meets Revenge in this edge-of-your-seat thriller with a shocking twist.

When they were little, Lexi and her identical twin, Ava, made up a third sister, Alicia. If something broke? Alicia did it. Cookies got eaten? Alicia’s guilty. Alicia was always to blame for everything. The game is all grown up now that the girls are seniors. They use Alicia as their cover to go out with boys who are hot but not exactly dating material. Boys they’d never, ever be with in real life.

Now one of the guys Alicia went out with has turned up dead, and Lexi wants to stop the game for good. As coincidences start piling up, Ava insists that if they follow the rules for being Alicia, everything will be fine. But when another boy is killed, the DNA evidence and surveillance photos point to only one suspect: Alicia. The girl who doesn’t exist. As she runs from the cops, Lexi has to find the truth before another boy is murdered. Because either Ava is a killer…or Alicia is real.


I first heard about this book when a blog tour was being announced. Unfortunately, i heard about it too late and was unable to participate. However, I was immediately intrigued by the summary and I simply must read it! I’ve been looking for a good mystery and this looks like the perfect fit.
If you have any mystery and cozy mystery recommendations, please share! Also, leave me a link to your WoW or tell me what you’re waiting on. 🙂

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Today my WoW is Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.
Red Queen (Red Queen #1)


Title: Red Queen
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Publication Date: February 10, 2015
Series: Red Queen #1
Synopsis:
The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?


I read the first seven chapters of the book I immediately fell in love! The world is so unique and within the first seven chapters there was a lot of suspense.
What are you waiting on? Leave me a link to your WoW or a comment. 🙂

Top Ten Tuesday.jpg
This weeks topic is “Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant to Read But Didn’t Get to.”

  1. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch.
    I actually had the opportunity to meet the author and get the book signed. I have NO clue why I haven’t read this.

  2. Loop (Loop #1) by Karen Akins
    This one looks so interesting and I MUST read it.

  3. The Kiss of Deception (The Remnant Chronicles #1) by Mary E. Pearson
    Everyone has been talking about how good this book is and I just have to read it.

  4. Exquisite Captive (Dark Caravan Cycle #1) by Heather Demetrios
    I was really excited to read this book when it first came out, but as with Snow Like Ashes I just never got around to it.

  5. The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy #1) by Marie Rutkoski
    Again, everyone’s been talking about this one and I feel left out. 😦

  6. The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) by Marie Lu
    I read the first book in the Legend trilogy and really liked it. I am excited for this new trilogy and can’t wait to read it this book.

  7. Something Real by Heather Demetrios
    I would love to read and compare the writing styles for both of Heather’s books. I’d like to see how she handles the two different genres.

  8. Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay
    This would be my first retelling and it sounds like the perfect book.

  9. A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1) by Claudia Gray
    I’ve heard mixed reviews on this one and I want to see for myself.

  10. Get Even (Don't Get Mad #1) by Gretchen McNeil
    This one sounds so interesting!
