Waiting on Wednesday – Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt

bright2

Title: Bright Before Sunrise
Author: Tiffany Schmidt
Publisher: Walker Childrens
Release Date: February 18, 2014{purchase}

Description: When Jonah is forced to move from Hamilton to Cross Pointe for the second half of his senior year, “miserable” doesn’t even begin to cover it. He feels like the doggy-bag from brighthis mother’s first marriage and everything else about her new life—with a new husband, new home and a new baby—is an upgrade. The people at Cross Pointe High School are pretentious and privileged—and worst of all is Brighton Waterford, the embodiment of all things superficial and popular. Jonah’s girlfriend, Carly, is his last tie to what feels real… until she breaks up with him.

For Brighton, every day is a gauntlet of demands and expectations. Since her father died, she’s relied on one coping method: smile big and pretend to be fine. It may have kept her family together, but she has no clue how to handle how she’s really feeling. Today is the anniversary of his death and cracks are beginning to show. The last thing she needs is the new kid telling her how much he dislikes her for no reason she can understand. She’s determined to change his mind, and when they’re stuck together for the night, she finally gets her chance.

Jonah hates her at 3p.m., but how will he feel at 3 a.m.?

One night can change how you see the world. One night can change how you see yourself.

The Author Auto-Buy List

Yes, I have a list, albeit it’s in my head, but I have a list of the authors that I would buy their books without even knowing what the book is about. All I have to see is their name and I’m ion immediate want of said book. And really that list is a complete testament to them and their style of writing and the AMAZING books they have given me in the past. So since May is a huge book release month and some of these authors have books coming out in May if not some point this year, I thought I would share 10 of my auto-buy authors in no particular order.
