Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

For this week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick I have chosen

34 Pieces Of You by Carmen Rodrigues

which will be published by Simon Pulse on 4th September.

A dark and moving novel—reminiscent of Thirteen Reasons Why—about the mystery surrounding a teenage girl’s fatal overdose.

There was something about Ellie…Something dangerous. Charismatic. Broken. Jake looked out for her. Sarah followed her lead. And Jess kept her distance—and kept watch.

Now Ellie’s dead, and Jake, Sarah, and Jess are left to pick up the pieces. All they have are thirty-four clues she left behind. Thirty-four strips of paper hidden in a box beneath her bed. Thirty-four secrets of a brief and painful life.

Jake, Sarah, and Jess all feel responsible for what happened to Ellie, and all three have secrets of their own. As they confront the past, they will discover not only the darkest truths about themselves, but also what Ellie herself had been hiding all along….

Lately I’ve been drawn to much darker subject matter in a book than I usually read. I think that’s down to me starting out as a blogger. These days I come across so many good books that I would never have known about 4 months ago when I’d never even heard of Goodreads! Joining Goodreads has opened up a whole new world of books for me. Gone are the days when I only read chick-lit. Not that I think there’s anything wrong with chick-lit, it’s just that I had got too cosy with those sort of books.

My WoW for this week  sounds really intriguing for the fact that the main character is dead as soon as the story starts. I really want to know more about Ellie, what the 34 strips of paper say, why she did what she did, and what part Jess, Sarah and Jake played in it all. This is definitely a book I am counting down the days for.

What is your WoW pick for this week? I would love to hear!
