Waiting on Wednesday [13]

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma (release date June 28, 2011)
Sixteen-year-old Maya and seventeen-year-old Lochan have never had the chance to be 'normal' teenagers. Having pulled together for years to take care of their younger siblings while their wayward, drunken mother leaves them to fend alone, they have become much more than brother and sister. And now, they have fallen in love.

But this is a love that can never be allowed, a love that will have devastating consequences...
I'm not at all a fan of books like this, but all over the blogosphere everyone's saying that it's really really good. So I have to read it, to see what I'm missing out on! I'm jealous of the people in the UK who got it first.


  1. I've heard good things too but it's not my usual read either so I'll be interested in what you think!

  2. I've read this actually. It's an intense read, but so well written. It's heart breaking too. I hope you enjoy it when you read it. Great pick!

  3. This book sounds so good! I'm super excited for it to be released. Great pick! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  4. Have you ever signed up/heard of Simon and Schuster's Galley Grab program? I think the website is Forbidden is available through them as an egalley :)

    It is REALLY strange/creepy, but one of those books you just can't stop reading, you know?

  5. Hmmm, a little flowers in the attic, huh? Sounds really interesting

  6. Carrie, I've actually read Flowers in the Attic, and this sounds quite different.

  7. My daughter wants this
    thanks for shairng

  8. I have a copy of this but I just haven't gotten to it yet. This is definitely going to be my read for the weekend and I'm looking forward it, too!


I read and appreciate every comment, so thank you in advance!
