Waiting on Wednesday # 45 ~ Your Voice Is All I Hear by Leah Scheier

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m waiting on: 

Your Voice Is All I Hear
Leah Scheier   

Expected publication: September 1st 2015 by Sourcebooks Fire

Everything about Jonah is unexpected. On the first day of school, he sits next to April, when he could have chosen to sit with the popular girl. He turns down an invitation to join the school team and declares he'd rather paint. He encourages April to develop her musical talent and shrugs off the bullies that torment them.

April isn't surprised to find herself falling for Jonah. The unexpected part is when he falls for her too.

But the giddy happiness of their first romance begins to fade when Jonah's unpredictability begins to take a darker turn. April understands that her boyfriend is haunted by a painful memory, but his sudden mood swings worry her. She can't explain his growing fear of cellphones, electric keyboards, and of sounds that no one else can hear. Still, no matter what happens, April is sure that she'll always stand by him.

Until Jonah finally breaks and is committed to a psychiatric ward.

Until schizophrenia changes everything.

Though everyone urges her to let him go, April stays true to Jonah. But as the boy she adores begins to disappear in front of her, she has to face her worst fear: that her love may not be enough to save him.

While searching Goodreads, I came across this book. Although it's not quite my typical read, I was caught by the blurb and now it's on my wish list.

So, what are you waiting for?

Never Never: Part Two
(Never Never #2)
Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher 

First - The Blurb:

“Never forget that I was your first real kiss. Never forget that you’ll be my last. 
And never stop loving me between all of them. 
Never stop, Charlie. 
Never forget.” 

Silas races against time as more truths unravel, while others twist tighter together. And now, the stakes are higher as Silas’ control slips and others begin to point fingers. Charlie is in trouble and he must be the one to bridge the chasm between their past and their present. Because somewhere between I love yous and Never Nevers and Never Agains, a truth they can't imagine, beckons to be found. 

“Where are you, Charlie?”

Second - The Tease:

Her tongue slips inside my mouth as her hand cradles the back of my head, pulling me closer. The sweet, sweet torture.

I lower my hand to her waist, inching her shirt up little by little until my fingers have access to her skin. I splay my hand out across her waist, feeling the heat from her body against my palm.

I continue to kiss her as my hand explores more of her, inch by inch, until one of my fingertips meets the fabric of her bra.

I want to keep going... to feel the softness beneath my fingertips. I want to...


Continuing directly from where Never Never: Part 1 left off, Never Never: Part 2 starts from Silas's POV and pretty much remains there except for the small glimpses we see of Charlie. Once again confused and disorientated as to who he is and how Charlie fits into his life, Silas searches for clues (which he finds) and slowly begins to piece things together.

In the first book, a lot of questions are raised. In book two, a few of them are answered. But not all of them. There is still so much intrigue and I can't wait for the next installment... Never Never: Part 3 to see where all this leads.

My Rating: 5 out of 5

Escaping Me
 (Escaping #1)
 Elizabeth Lee

All she wanted to do was forget. Forget the memory of walking in on her boyfriend in the middle of, well, another girl. Forget how she had her entire life planned out. And, forget about being perfect all the time. Unfortunately, she was Whitney Vandaveer and despite the fact that she moved to the middle of nowhere – she couldn't.

He always knew he would never be more than nothing. No job, no money, no future. Cole Pritchett had accepted the fact that he would always be the screw up and he was okay with it. Until he met her.

Here's the thing they quickly found out – sometimes we all need a little help escaping who we think we are.

Leave a comment and tell me what's waiting on your TBR pile.
