Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Panic by Sharon M. Draper

This gripping and chillingly realistic novel from New York Times bestselling author Sharon Draper shows that all it takes is one bad decision for everything to change.

Diamond knows not to get into a car with a stranger.

But what if the stranger is well-dressed and handsome? On his way to meet his wife and daughter? And casting a movie that very night—a movie in need of a star dancer? What then?

Then Diamond might make the wrong decision.

It’s a nightmare come true: Diamond Landers has been kidnapped. She was at the mall with a friend, alone for only a few brief minutes—and now she’s being held captive, forced to endure horrors beyond what she ever could have dreamed, while her family and friends experience their own torments and wait desperately for any bit of news.

From New York Times bestselling author Sharon Draper, this is a riveting exploration of power: how quickly we can lose it—and how we can take it back.

Panic doesn't sound like most of the books I read -- or at least the ones I've been reading lately -- but the combination of the title and that cover along with a synopsis that sounds more than intriguing have it definitely added to my to-read list.

What's your pick for this week? Leave me a link, in the comments, to your post/pick!


  1. The cover is AMAZING. It is just a pretty cover until you see the pins sticking out of the butterfly. Definitely brings it to another level. And it sounds good, different from the norm. I think this could be a good book!

  2. AH! How had I not heard of this book? It sounds fantastic! I've never read a book about kidnapping and this one sound kind of awesome. Not awesome in a good way, just awesome in a way that this book sounds like it's going to be a really good read? Hope that makes sense.

    My WoW

  3. This book sounds amazing and after reading the synopsis the cover matches it perfectly! At first I saw the cover and was like "Oh. Pretty but just like all the other covers sporting that stupid blue butterfly recently." But now I'm like "NEED!" Thanks for sharing :)
