Waiting On Wednesday (37) + New Covers!

Time for the"Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Waiting on Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

First Day on Earth by Cecil Castellucci

To be Published: November 1st 2011 by Scholastic Press

A startling, wonderful novel about the true meaning of being an alien in an equally alien world.

"We are specks. Pieces of dust in this universe. Big nothings.

"I know what I am."

Mal lives on the fringes of high school. Angry. Misunderstood. Yet loving the world -- or, at least, an idea of the world.

Then he meets Hooper. Who says he's from another planet. And may be going home very soon.

I think this contemporary fiction with a twist of sci-fi sounds intriguing.  Also I really like the cover.  I am definitely going to have check it out when it releases in November!

What book are YOU waiting on?

On a side note... have you seen these awesome recently released covers?

Ooh, Goddess Interrupted looks awesome (judging solely by the cover, of course).

First Day on Earth sounds like an interesting twist on the whole feeling out of place in high school thing. I'll keep an eye out for it. Thanks for the heads up.
