This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez
Release Date: October 16th 2012 by Simon Pulse 
  Format: Hardcover
  Goodreads Summary:
From the author of Virtuosity, a novel about two sisters and the secrets they tell, the secrets they keep, and the secret that tears them apart.

Amelia is used to being upstaged by her charismatic younger sister, Charly. She doesn’t mind, mostly, that it always falls to her to cover for Charly’s crazy, impulsive antics. But one night, Charly's thoughtlessness goes way too far, and she lands them both in serious trouble.

Amelia's not sure she can forgive Charly this time, and not sure she wants to…but the situation is even worse than either of them realizes. Amelia has no choice but to give up everything--her friends, her future, her dream--in order to cover for Charly’s huge mistake.

Amelia doesn't understand how her sister could have done this to them both. What she doesn't know is that Charly is hiding a terrible secret—one with the potential to change everything.
Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
 1. The cover. I just love the pink. I do. And I think both cover models are rocking really nice hairstyles (I'm a girl, of course I noticed, lol). Though, they do look highly annoyed by each other which really goes well with the title of this book, I think --> The Space Between Us. There is definitely a space between them alright. They don't look like happy campers :O

2. The sibling drama. Loves it. I haven't read too many Contemporary YA books about sisters and these seem to have a lot of secrecy between them as the title references to that a bit. So, I definitely want to know what's going on.
What do you guys think? :)


  1. Hey Jen!
    Nice pick this week, really. I do think this will make it onto my tbr, too - but not for the cover. Well, at least not for the pink and the hairstyles, but maybe for the pose. Because I think you're perfectly right - there definitively is a space between them.
    Since I have a sister myself, I am really intersted in those sibling drama stories. I am really, rally interested in what all those secrets in the blurb are. Gosh, I want it to be October already! x)
    Thanks for sharing! My WoW this week

  4. I LOVE stories about sisters. I would do anything for mine. Luckily, I am the crazy impulsive one.

  5. This one looks REALLY GOOD. Adding this to my TBR pile. Awesome pick! :D

    Drop by my WoW? :D

  6. I love sibling rivalry and sibling relationships in YA books. I don't have a sister so I'm always to read about other sisters. The pink cover and sort of bland looking white girls are a little much for me, but I'm still tacking this on my TBR pile.

  7. Sibling rivalry always makes a great ya bok lol. I hadn't seen this one before so thanks for sharing. And I agree their hairstyles are really nice. My WOW
