Waiting On Wednesday #15: Winter White (Belles #2) by Jen Calonita

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and make our shelves look all pretty :)

by Jen Calonita 
Release Date: October 9th, 2012

(from Goodreads) 
Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from the revelation that they share more than just the roof over their heads. The media has pounced on their story and the girls are caught up in a flurry of talk-show appearances and newspaper interviews. They’ve put on a happy public face, but someone is leaking their true feelings to the press, and while it seems like the world is watching their every move, at least they have each other.

But with cotillion season right around the corner, Izzie and Mira have barely had time to process their newfound sisterhood. Mira has dreamed of making her debut in a gorgeous white gown forever-now, if only she could find an escort. Izzie, meanwhile, is still struggling to find her place in Emerald Cove and it’s seeming ever more impossible with EC mean-girls, young and old, doing their best to keep her down. As cotillion preparations heat up, though, there are dance steps to learn, manners to perfect... and secret initiations to complete? As if sophomore year wasn’t hard enough!

It’s time for the gowns to go on and the gloves to come off.


First, I looove the cover! It not only matches the first book, and it goes so well with the title and summary.
Second, I am really looking forward how Izzie and Mira's story continues. No spoilers here, lol! but from what I'm getting from this summary, it seems that things are going to get even more interesting - and I am liking that!
Lastly, I enjoy Jen Calonita's writing style. How she effortlessly went back and forth between Izzie and Mira's narrations, I really liked knowing what they were both going through at the same time.
