Waiting on Wednesday
Welcome to my WOW, or HOW as I like to call it where I feature an upcoming release that I'm hyperventilating for! It's totally fun to geek out about upcoming releases! This event is hosted by the lovely Jill @ Breaking The Spine. Today's awesome-sauce pick is....


Transparent by Natalie Whipple
TBP: 5.21.13 by HarperTeen
ADD ON GOODREADS 
X-Men meets The Godfather; in which an invisible girl has to stop her dad—an infamous crime lord—from ruining her life. On the run from her mind-controlling father, the infamously invisible Fiona McClean hides in a small town, hoping to finally rid herself of the crime world she has always known. But playing at “normal life” with a mother she hates, a brother she can’t trust, and a boy she can’t stand proves more difficult than she ever imagined. Soon her father is hot on her heels, and it’s up to Fiona to protect not only her family, but the friends who’ve taught her that life doesn’t have to be as lonely and cruel as she thought.


Why I'm Hyperventilating:
Do you see that gorgeous and vibrant cover? Did you read the blurb? X-Men meets The Godfather? INVISIBLE GIRL?! That alone has hooked me to the core! I seriously can not wait to read this book! I looks gorgeous, has a totally unique and interesting premise and the MC's name is FIONA. I approve. My Nanowrimo character's name is Fiona. Fiona's rock. I'm totally intrigued with the invisible aspect of this book? If she's invisible how does she really live a life? Oh and did you see that her dad is a crime lord? This book gets better every second. I know there is already some SMASH-TASTIC blurb out there and I hope too add mine to it later. But all in all, to sum it up.....

I. NEED. THIS. BOOK. NOW!!

  1. I love the idea of X-Men mashed up with The Godfather-kind of random but also super awesome. No wonder you're hyperventilating :)

  2. Love this cover, which proves that you don't need a girl in a prom dress to have a gorgeous cover.

    Not such an X-Men fan, but I love books that feature characters with evil parents, like Cassel Sharp in the Curseworkers and Anya in All These Things I've Done.

    Great pick -- thanks for stopping by!

    1. I have the book ATTID from the library! Now you make me excited to read it!
      And I agree. I love all kinds of covers, but the Prom Dress is getting a little old.

  18. I really want to read this one to. I love the cover. Great pick! Thanks for stopping by my WoW.

  19. Okay. You are gonna hate me. I don't really like this cover. I think it's TOO busy and there are TOO many colors. BUT...I do like the title font. The book better be set in Vegas though, otherwise, WHY that cover?

    As for the blurb, I think it sounds good, I just don't know if it will be a book I like. I think I will have to wait and see what some other bloggers say first before I decide. Great pick though!

  20. This book just sounds so awesome o___o I have to admit that I agree with Kara - on the screen, it looks like there are too many colors, but maybe it would look prettier in real life!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier!
