Waiting on Wednesday #18

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Basically, it’s a chance to highlight one of the many books that you want to read but hasn’t been released just yet.  This week I have selected 2 books.

My Waiting on Wednesday picks for this week are…

Title: What She Left Behind
Author: Tracy Bilen
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: May 1, 2012

“Don’t even think of leaving…I will find you,” he whispered. “Guaranteed.”

Sara and her mom have a plan to finally escape Sara’s abusive father. But when her mom doesn’t show up as expected, Sara’s terrified. Her father says that she’s on a business trip, but Sara knows he’s lying. Her mom is missing—and her dad had something to do with it. Each day that passes, Sara’s more on edge. Her friends know that something’s wrong, but she won’t endanger anyone else with her secret. And with her dad growing increasingly violent, Sara must figure out what happened to her mom before it’s too late…for them both.

I seem to be choosing much darker books latetly.  Not really sure why.

Title: Snow White
Author: The Grimm Brothers
Publisher: Harper Collins
Publication Date: February 28, 2012
THE REISSUE OF the classic Grimm tale of a beautiful young girl with skin as white as snow, lips and cheeks as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony is breathtakingly realized by acclaimed artist Charles Santore in this lush, lovely picture book.

Just how amazing do those illustrations look?  How can you possibly resist getting this version?  I think I may just have to preorder it.
