Waiting On Wednesday (16)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate.

A steamy Southern beauty makes one fatal mistake.

Natalie Hargrove would kill to be her high school’s Palmetto Princess. But her boyfriend Mike King doesn’t share her dream and risks losing the honor of Palmetto Prince to Natalie’s nemesis, Justin Balmer. So she convinces Mike to help play a prank on Justin. . . one that goes terribly wrong. They tie him to the front of the church after a party—when they arrive the next morning, Justin is dead.

From blackmail to buried desire, dark secrets to darker deeds, Natalie unravels. She never should’ve messed with fate. Fate is the one thing more twisted than Natalie Hargrov

I want to read this book because:
-1. The cover is so alluring. So I judge a book by its cover, what's the big deal? It makes the book look half teen, half adult don't you think? I just wish it would be less dark. My eyes hurt : (
-2. Sounds dangerous and sinful. Accidental death is not something I'm into, but the progress of how the secret is hidden and later, exposed is really really fun.
-3. The author seems new (or is it just the clueless me?) I want to check out her writing!

Beware of betrayal on Nov 12th 2009 ><

I have this book already. And have read about 70 pages in it. I find the actual cover to be really awkward. But the story is good enough so far. I suppose..

It does look cool! It reminds me of the cover of WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED. Same old-timey lipstick and dark lighting.

The cover may be a bit dark too because I photoshopped a screen shot I took from the penguin online catalog!
