Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby

SUMMARY: Meet Josephine  Foster, or Zo Jo as she’s called in the biz. The best pint-sized photographer of them all, Jo doesn’t mind doing what it takes to get that perfect shot, until she’s sent on an undercover assignment to shoot Ned Hartnett—teen superstar and the only celebrity who’s ever been kind to her—at an exclusive rehabilitation retreat in Boston. The money will be enough to pay for Jo’s dream: real photography classes, and maybe even quitting her paparazzi gig for good. Everyone wants to know what Ned’s in for. But Jo certainly doesn’t know what she’s in for: falling in love with Ned was never supposed to be part of her assignment.

The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen

SUMMARY:Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that’s just fine by her. She’s got her friends – the fabulous Frankie and their sweet cohort Sadie. She’s got her art – and her idol, the unappreciated 19th-century painter Edward Willing. Still, it’s hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is your French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before. But can the invisible girl actually end up with a happily ever after with the golden boy, when no one even knows they’re dating? And is Ella going to dare to be that girl?

Because we all need a little romance in our lives. And I wanted to veer off from books with characters who are inexplicably drawn to each other. I mean, if I’ll love someone, I want to have that choice of being with him rather than having him in my life by default. What about you? What are you waiting on Wednesday? 😉

For this week’s Waiting on Wednesday, I’m visiting the following blogs:

  1. The Fine Art of Truth or Dare sounds very good! I like the cover. It’s sooo ART. Hehe. Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog again. Great pick! Thank you for sharing!

    I’m looking for someone who can gather a list of YA Realistic and Contemp books about Romance. If you can help, please let me know? Thank you so, so much in advance!


    • Sure, Sam! I’ll send you my suggestions. There are several bloggers I know, too, who are so into YA Contemp Romance who know more than I do and I’m pretty sure they’re willing to help. Thanks for dropping by! 😉

    • Hi, Nat! 🙂
      Yes, I’m wanting some romance this week. Thanks for visiting my post. You chose a great book yourself! 😉

    • Hi, Moirae! 🙂

      Thank you so much for stopping by. As much as I want to feature your blog on the list of the blogs I visited for WoW this week, I’m sorry but I can’t. It seems that some material in your blog are flagged for mature audiences. My blog features books in the general fiction category but mostly middle-grade, YA and cozy mysteries. So my audience is somehow limited to the younger generation. I sure hope there is still something that I can help you with in the future. Again, I apologize. 🙂

    • I did check out your WoW entry this week, Shellie. And may I say that I’m also waiting eagerly for Hallowed. Thanks for stopping by. ^_^

    • Bloggers are such connoisseurs when it comes to books so no surprise there about everyone picking great reads. Thanks for stopping by. I must say that your choice was pretty awesome, too. 😉

  2. Thanks for stopping by. Great picks, I can’t wait for The Fine Art of Truth or Dare as well. I haven’t heard of Shooting Stars yet but it sounds good and I love the cover.

    • An understatement. I’m sure there are tons of books we are all waiting for. Hehe
      Thanks for stopping by, Traci. I appreciate it. ^_^

  3. OMG, I thank you so much for sharing Shooting Stars (and I love the clever play on words there), it sounds like so much fun. Is it me or does the cover heroine look Asian? How cool would that be? And I too have been supremely excited for The Fine Art of Truth or Dare! Excellent choices!

    • I share your opinion about the cover girl. I hope she really is Asian. It’s not often we meet “colored” cover girls. Thanks for visiting, Asher! 😉

Would love to hear from you. Please leave a reply. ;)
