Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
The book we’ve picked for this week is…
Ryan lowers his lips to my ear. “Dance with me, Beth.”
“No.” I whisper the reply. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again….
“I dare you…”
If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk’s home life, they’d send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom’s freedom and her own happiness. That’s how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn’t want her and going to a school that doesn’t understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn’t get her, but does….
Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can’t tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn’t be less interested in him.
But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won’t let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all….
Ever since I finished Pushing the Limits, I’ve been dying to read its spin off, Dare You To! I’ve always been intrigued by Beth, because her character is so complex. I guess I’ll find out more about her in…26 days!

Special thanks to Nicole and Michelle of The Twins Read for their twitter giveaway!
As you can see, we received quite a small haul this week, which is probably why I decided to insert pictures of the books to liven up the post a little! Even though we only got four books, Tiffany and I still have the BEST week of our bookish lives.
First of all, CLOCKWORK PRINCESS.
I don’t think I need to say more. Just that I’m extremely jealous of Tiff right now. But thank goodness she’s letting me borrow it. See, that’s an awesome co-blogger right there. (Though I will never admit it ever again.) Check out her 5 star Review for Clockwork Princess!
But, my week has been great as well, thanks for asking. (Haha, just kidding.) I received Hopeless from Edelweiss, and I practically screamed when I got the email.
And yes, it was AMAZING.
I think I just fell in love with the characters. And lost a whole lot of sleep in the process. The review for Hopeless is coming up soon, so don’t forget to stop by and take a look at it!
What about YOU? What’s your haul this week? Leave a comment, and we’ll stop by your blog and check out your haul!
