Waiting on Wednesday: June 27, 2012: Winter White by Jen Calonita

27 Jun

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly me hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine (gotta love the name!). The idea is that it spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. So, here is my pick for the week:

Winter White (Belles #2)
by Jen Calonita
Publication Date: October 9th, 2012

From Amazon:
Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from the revelation that they share more than just the roof over their heads. The media has pounced on their story and the girls are caught up in a flurry of talk-show appearances and newspaper interviews. They’ve put on a happy public face, but someone is leaking their true feelings to the press, and while it seems like the world is watching their every move, at least they have each other.

But with cotillion season right around the corner, Izzie and Mira have barely had time to process their newfound sisterhood. Mira has dreamed of making her debut in a gorgeous white gown forever-now, if only she could find an escort. Izzie, meanwhile, is still struggling to find her place in Emerald Cove and it’s seeming ever more impossible with EC mean-girls, young and old, doing their best to keep her down. As cotillion preparations heat up, though, there are dance steps to learn, manners to perfect… and secret initiations to complete? As if sophomore year wasn’t hard enough!
It’s time for the gowns to go on and the gloves to come off.

Why I’m Waiting: I picked up Belles at The Little Shop of Stories in preparation for Jen Calonita’s signing. Sadly, I didn’t make it to the signing but I’m certainly glad I picked up a copy of her book! Belles was an delicious YA contemporary book with the perfect mix of southern charm, rumors and backstabbing. However, it wasn’t until this week that I found out there was a second book in the series! I can’t wait to dive back into Izzie and Mira’s world, especially after the events of Belles left everything so upside down! And Winter White looks to be intriguing and fascinating , as we step back into the world of Emerald Cove.

If you haven’t had a chance to read Belles yet, check out my review and grab a copy before Winter White comes out this fall!

    Great pick! I’ve seen Belles on a few blogs now and really want to read it … I’m impressed by the covers for both books in the series — they’re just so beautiful!
