Waiting On Wednesday #98: BELZHAR by Meg Wolitzer (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 for...

by Meg Wolitzer
Expected release date: September 30th, 2014
Published by: Dutton Juvenile (Penguin)
Genre: Young Adult 
Format: Hardback, eBook


If life were fair, Jam Gallahue would still be  at home in New Jersey with her sweet British  boyfriend, Reeve Maxfield. She’d be watching  old comedy sketches with him. She’d be kissing  him in the library stacks.

She certainly wouldn’t be at The Wooden Barn, a therapeutic boarding school in rural Vermont, living with a weird roommate, and signed up for an exclusive, mysterious class called Special Topics in English.

But life isn’t fair, and Reeve Maxfield is dead.

Until a journal-writing assignment leads Jam to Belzhar, where the untainted past is restored, and Jam can feel Reeve’s arms around her once again. But there are hidden truths on Jam’s path to reclaim her loss.

From New York Times bestselling author Meg Wolitzer comes a breathtaking and surprising story about first love, deep sorrow, and the power of acceptance.

Why I'm waiting on BELZHAR...

First of all... just look at that brilliant cover!
It is eye-catching, something I would have never imagined for it and the yellow!!!

Next... boarding school!!!

And lastly... this journal-writing assignment that transports you to an 'untainted past'!
I want to dive into a journal like this one!!! 

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


  1. I love the idea of the journal assignment helping Belzhar sort through everything. Interesting pick, I'll have to add it to my own TBR list.

  2. This one sounds cool and also ominous to me.

  3. The cover is brilliant, it does sound cool too!
    My WoW
