Waiting on Wednesday #9

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

What I am waiting for on this Wednesday: Die For Me by Amy Plum (May 2011) 
Moving to Paris, falling in love, and experiencing a mysterious secret- "Die For Me" sounds like a great start to a new series of YA books!

DIE FOR ME is the first of three books about Kate, a sixteen-year-old American who moves to Paris after the death of her parents. She finds herself falling for Vincent, who she discovers is not the typical French teenager he appears: he is something else entirely. 

Summary by Goodreads


  1. I have seen this book in a few places, the cover really makes it look like a very dark story.

  2. I hope when you get your book, it is everything you hope it to be. Check out what I am Waiting On Wednesday for.

  3. Die for me sounds like it might be an awesome trilogy!

  4. The Storm Before Atlanta
    By Karen Schwabach
    Publication date: December 28, 2010

    At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.

  5. I love the sound of Die For Me, because I *love* Paris!! I was fortunate to spend a few weeks with my cousins who live in the city last summer. Anyway, awesome and original pick, I haven't seen this one around. :)
