Waiting on Wednesday: None of the Regular Rules and Some Quiet Place

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you can post about upcoming books you're looking forward to. This is a wonderful chance for blogger to show off what's coming out soon that they are excited about! Every week my wishlist balloons thanks to this awesome meme.

None of the Regular Rules by Erin Downing
Sometimes, a few dares can change lives… 
The weekend before the start of senior year, Sophie Erickson and her best friends, Ella and Grace, discover a handwritten list of dares tucked away in the glove compartment of Sophie’s beat-up old Toyota. But this isn’t just any list; it’s a dead girl's bucket list. 
Sophie's beloved aunt Suzy died as a teenager in a fatal fall, leaving Sophie with an overly cautious family, a few fading photographs, and a bucket of bolts that barely passes for a car. But now, Sophie has Suzy’s list of the things she wanted to do in her last year of high school. Sophie can't help but wonder: What would happen if she tried to fulfill Suzy’s last wishes, to live out the longed-for life of her aunt, her hero? 
As Sophie and her friends attempt to knock off the things on Suzy's list of dares, love blossoms in unexpected places and Sophie begins to feel that her life is finally coming together...when in fact, everything is slowly unraveling around her. When the truth about a long-held family secret threatens to shatter everything she believed to be true, Sophie is forced to question everything she knew about the life and people she believed in, and ultimately herself.
None of the Regular Rules was out November 20th 2012.

I'm looking forward to snagging this one because it looks like such a fun concept. How cute does it look? I had no idea it was already out! I just wish I owed a Nook...

Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton
Elizabeth Caldwell has perfected the art of pretending to feel emotion, but it’s always a lie. After a near-fatal car accident when she was a small child, Elizabeth lost the ability to feel any emotion, but along with that loss she gained bizarre abilities: she can see the personified Emotions she cannot feel. Fury, Resentment, Longing—they’ve all given up on her, because she doesn't succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one. Fear. He’s consumed by the mystery of Elizabeth’s past, consumed by her. 
And then there are Elizabeth's cryptic, recurring dreams, in which there’s always love, and there’s always death. Haunted by these dreams, Elizabeth paints them, knowing that they somehow hold the key to the mystery of her past.

But a shadowy menace is stalking Elizabeth. Her survival depends on uncovering the truth about herself. And when it matters most, she won’t be able to rely on Fear to save her.
Some Quiet Place is out July 8th 2013 by Flux.

Holy creepy cover! This looks terrifying and the summary is so interesting. From the summary, it looks like emotions are personified and I'll be interested to see how this is done. Sign me up for this one!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. None of the Regular Rules sounds so good! I hadn't heard of it before, but it is definitely going on my TBR list now.

    ( My WoW Pick )

  2. I've had my eye on Some Quiet Place for awhile now but I've never heard of None of the Regular Rules until now. Normally I would be put off by the kissing cover (blegh) but the summary sounds super intriguing! Plus it's already out so I don't have to wait for it. Yay! :D

Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
