The lovely Jill (a fellow Alabamian!) over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on.
I hadn't even heard of this week's selection until the lovely Savannah (@BookswithBite) tweeted about her giveaway (check it out here), but once I read the description I knew I had to feature it. If you've never heard of it either, then you're in for a treat! My WoW pick this week is...
All The Things I've Done
By Gabrielle Zevin
Pub date Yesterday!
product description from goodreads.com
In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend.
That is until her ex is accidentally poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame.
Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight--at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.
Come on...Forbidden chocolate and the mafia? I am so there.
And the best part? It came out yesterday, so hurry and snag a copy now!
