Waiting on Wednesday (27)

Posted by

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. 
My pick this week:


Jeanne Ryan
Release date: September 13th, 2012
by Dial Books (Penguin)

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game *knows* her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating—Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn. Suddenly they’re playing all or nothing, and the prize might be their lives.

I love the sounds of this mostly because it seems so different. A real-life, twisted, Sims-ish, dare game!? Awesome! The cover is really cool too it’s what made me check out the book as soon as I saw this on someone’s Facebook page.

    This sounds so interesting! It’s definitely different from many books I’ve seen around, so I do want to check it out!

  2. Jennifer

    This sounds really good and different and even a bit eerie because how does the game know them? Kinda reminds me of Tron. Love it and the cover is amazeballs, too. Thanks for sharing, Giselle 🙂

  3. Danny

    This sounds absolutely awesome. Never saw it before and I love unique plots and this one definitely sounds different! Oh and the cover ? Great!

  4. Kim

    Oh this sounds amazing! That last sentence definitely has me interested. I’m really curious as to what kind of eerie twist the author is going to throw at us now! Great pick and thanks for sharing 🙂

    Whoaaa, this book sounds INTENSE. There’s also a creepy feel to it, but definitely has the potential to be a page-turner. It reminds me a of a whole bunch of movies and random episodes of crime tv shows, so it’ll be interesting to see this in novel-form~

  6. Kathy

    This has a interesting synopsis and is really different from other books out there. The cover is eye catching. I hope it’s as good as it sounds. Great choice!

  7. Patricia

    I will spend hours trying to figure that cover out. All your fault! ; )

    Definitely agree with you, it seems to be very different & I really hope that it actually IS because after a time most novels seem to merge into one big.. I don’t even know what to call it. So some fresh air would be great! *g*

    Thank you for sharing it with us!

    HOLY CRAP. I think if this one is done well, it’ll be excellent. I have never, ever heard anything like it. The premise and the cover are both making me question why this isn’t out RIGHT THIS MINUTE.
