Waiting on Wednesday #1

A weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.
This meme spotlights upcoming releases that we just CAN'T wait to get our hands on!

I have MANY books that I can't wait to read, but I'm only going to mention one. 

My selection for this weeks 'WoW' is:  
Hooked by Catherine Greenman 
Release Date: August 9, 2011
Pre-order it: Amazon
Thea Galehouse has always known how to take care of herself. With a flighty club-owner mom and a standoffish, recovering-alcoholic dad, Thea has made her own way in her hometown of New York, attending the prestigious and competitive Stuyvesant High School. But one chat with Will, a handsome and witty senior, and she's a goner—completely hooked on him and unable to concentrate on anything else.
Always worried that she loves Will more than he loves her, Thea is pleasantly surprised when their romance weathers his move to college and Will goes out of his way to involve her in his life. But then, Thea misses a period. And that starts Thea and Will on a wild ride that neither of them could have possibly prepared for. When they decide to keep the baby, their concerned parents chip in what they can to keep Will in school and give both teenagers a comfortable place to raise their child. But when a freak accident leaves Thea shaken and threatens to upend their little family altogether, Thea is forced to turn to the last place she would have chosen for comfort: her stiff, uncompromising father.
This smart, touching first novel brims with realistic, beautifully drawn characters, and reminds us that love is never as easy or predictable as we might like it to be.

Summary from Goodreads.  
I picked Hooked as this weeks 'WoW' because I absolutely can't wait for it. (Duh!) It's a debut author book. The cover is gorgeous! I love how it's kind of simple and love the awesome font for the title and how it kind of looks like a tattoo on the side of her stomach. 

For those of you who don't know, I'm expecting a little boy in March. Next Month! (I know, so, so close!) And so when I read the summary for this debut,  I knew I had to read it. There aren't many books on the subject of teen pregnancy, so I'm really excited for this book to be out for that reason. Some people still consider me a teen since I'm under 21 still, but at the same time I'm not still a teen. I'm legal, and married. 

I have this on my debut author challenge list and can't wait to read it! Who else is looking forward to this title?

  2. You're right, I can't think of any books about teen pregnancy. I think some may have it as like a side plot, but not as the main plot. This should be an interesting read.

  11. I'm excited for this one, as well! I think teenage pregnancy is a really interesting issue- and not one I've seen tackled in many books. Mostly just on TV. It will be really cool to see how this plays out in book form!

    And congrats!!!!

  12. This book sounds like it's going to be a good read! The only other book I've read that has a teenage pregnancy in it was Sarah Dessen's Someone Like You. Thanks for sharing! I'll add it to my wishlist!

    Here is my WoW :)

  13. First off, thanks for stopping by the blog and sharing your praise for my PiC feature. I appreciate it.

    Second, Hooked looks fantabulous! I'm excited to read it so that I can get some insider scoop on the feelings of a pregnant teen, the kind of struggles and hardships they have to face. I mean, I see it happen a lot in my high school. It makes me curious about their feelings. Can't wait to get my hands on this book, as much for the premise as for the cover!

    Third, congratulations! A little boy *sighs* how wonderful. Please be sure to take care of yourself and I wish you all the luck, especially consider March is right around the corner. I hope you're happy!

    Love your layout by the way, mostly the fonts. Very pretty.

    Thanks again for stopping by the blog!

  14. I had not heard of this book before, it sounds interesting. Congratulations on your pregnancy. I used to get a lot of good reading time in when I was nursing, you have to sit in one place for a long time and I felt like tv was too distracting to the baby.
