Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

With the upcoming 2012 year of YA books you will be hard pressed NOT to find a cover with a pretty girl posing in a gorgeous dress. That is why SWEET EVIL by Wendy Higgins stood out to be because there was an ominiously hot looking man also on the cover. Next I read the snyopsis and it intrigued me enough for me to place it on my WOW for this week? What do you think? Is the cover too much? Would you believe that it was a YA book? Oh, so many questions, in the meantime I will keep staring at the hot guy. LOL

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”

Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
