This is the weekly meme dedicated to the upcoming releases that 'tickle our fancies' and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.
Tickling my fancy this week is The Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti.
Release Date: 16th March, 2010.
It's a YA book that I stumbled upon while cruising through Amazon for books to add to my collection.
From Barnes & Noble (Their synopsis was the best IMO):
Scarlett Hughes is overly involved in the lives of everyone around her, especially her neighbors, including: a young goth girl who chalks her very traditional wishes on the sidewalk; a forgetful mailman; and an older couple whose main excitement in their lives are the formal-sounding scam emails from foreign lands promising large sums of money. But when Scarlett's sister, Juliet, returns home from school--pregnant and surprisingly married to a sweet, handsome boy who she seems to have no interest in, but who is hopelessly in love with her--Scarlett is thrust solidly into her own life, and forced to take a look inward for the first time. The Six Rules of Maybe is about the necessity of dreams, as well as the necessity of facing reality and speaking the truth.
I love the title and the serenity of the cover. I am definitely excited about the book because I know what it 's like having to introspect not to mention facing reality.
What do you think?
I'm off to check out the other WoW posts.
