Waiting On Wednesday #82: POISONED APPLES: POEMS FOR YOU, MY PRETTY by Christine Heppermann (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 

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, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

by Christine Heppermann
Expected release date: September 2014
Published by: Greenwillow Books
Genre: Young Adult Poetry
Format: Hardback, eBook


Poisoned Apples: Poems for You, My Pretty, will be published by Greenwillow Books in September, 2014. 

Poisoned Apples has been called:
"A bloody poetic attack on the beauty myth that's caustic, funny and heartbreaking" (E. Lockhart) 

A "powerful and provocative exploration of body image, media, and love." (Rae Carson)

"Simply phenomenal. Heppermann’s honest voice grabs the reader with urgency. This collection is a champion for teens and adults who see our world as an advertisement for perfection that doesn’t exist. Readers will want to read these poems aloud over and over again." (A. S. King)

Why I'm waiting on POISONED APPLES...

Even though an official summary has yet to be released by the publisher, 
this book of poetry sounds epic! 
Look at all those quotes! Such high praises!

And the cover, oh my, I am in love with the cover!

"Curiouser, curiouser..." 

SO, what are you waiting for this week?!?!


  1. I'm not a big Poetry person but I totally agree that cover and title is awesome. I hope you get to read it soon!
    My Wow

    Happy Wednesday!
