Waiting on Wednesday: Enchated Ivy by Sarah Beth Durst

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

This week my selection was brought to my attention by a dear friend that love love loved the cover and concept and now I am a fan also and cannot wait to read this enticing book. Sarah Beth Durst also wrote ICE which was a fantastic novel so I am sure this will be just as entertaining.

What do you think about it? and what is your WOW for this week?


a novel by Sarah Beth Durst
coming October 2010 from
Simon & Schuster / Margaret K. McElderry Books

A story about getting into college. You know, taking the campus tour, talking to the gargoyles, flirting with the were-tigers, riding the dragons...

While visiting the campus of Princeton University, 16-year-old Lily discovers a secret gate to a magical realm and must race against time to save herself, her world, and any hope she has of college admission.

I ADORE THIS COVER and if you click on it you can get the high res image :)

I am SO not into this cover, though I can't really say why.
Still, I am mega excited about this book!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
