Booking Through Thursday is a weekly bookish meme about (mostly) books and reading.
I'm living on the edge of the mountains, so we usually get a pretty winter with lots of snow, etc. However, this year winter totally skipped out on us. There was only one day with maybe an inch or two of snow, gone again after two days. I was happy because that saved me all the shoveling and some car trouble, but all the kids probably weren't. And winter holidays start next week, and it already feels almost like spring...
But let's imagine the snow back on my doorstep, and I would love to stay indoors and curl up with a book, of course. I would light candles around the room, hope my kittens will curl up with me, looking cute, and drink tea or hot chocolate. Book doesn't matter, either, just my current read.
But sometimes I just don't feel like reading, not even on a snowy day, then I'd be gaming. Probably something where I totally forget the time, like Anno 1602. I love builing for hours and hours, especially on a crappy day.
For my boyfriend's credit, he would somehow coax me outside for a winter walk, because he's an outdoorsy person and he enjoys all the seasons. And I'd go just to make him happy, although I hate being outside in the cold. *br*
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: Nearly Gone
Author: Elle Cosimano
Expected Publication: March 25, 2014
Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother's job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn't trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.
Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it all out soon—she'll be next.
Why I am looking forward to this: I don't read so much thriller tension, but I think I should, so I put this onto my tbr when I found it. I'm not so sure if I'll end up liking it though, because it could turn out to be rather shallow and obvious, but it could also be just the right kind of twisted and creepy.
