Top Ten Tuesday: December New Releases

Well hello there!

I am back from my fabulously wonderful vacation in Europe!  I’ll do a post with some pictures later this week, I promise!

Tuesday is the day I participate in the Broke and Bookish’s weekly event Top Ten Tuesday.  Ever week they post a theme and book bloggers all over create lists based on that theme.

This week I’m taking a break from the official theme to highlight some new releases for the month of December. There are always so many new books being released every month that I get a little overwhelmed!  I want to buy (or at least read) them all!

Waiting on Wednesday: The Almost Truth

Hi there!

It’s the middle of the week which currently mean two things for me:

1. Author Sharon Draper is visiting my school tomorrow! Holy junk! I’m so nervous, but excited too! I’ll try to post about her visit later this week.

2. It’s time for a Waiting on Wednesday post!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine, which gives book bloggers the opportunity to  highlight some upcoming new releases we just can’t wait for!

This week I’m excited about The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook.

The Almost Truth by Eileen CookSadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.

But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or she’ll be stuck in this town forever.

With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn’t prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose.

Doesn’t it sound like it could be a cute, romantic contemporary read?  I haven’t read anything by Eileen Cook before, but I do like the sound of The Almost Truth. This one will be released by Simon Pulse on December 4, so we don’t have too much longer to wait.

What upcoming release are you waiting on this week?
