Waiting on Wednesday: The List by Siobhan Vivian

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on The List by Siobhan Vivian.

An intense look at the rules of high school attraction -- and the price that's paid for them.It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two

The List comes out April 1, 2012.


  1. I'm not a fan of contemporary but this still sounds like a good read.

  2. I think this looks like a great book. I am looking forward to reading it!! Good pick!!

    Check out my WOW.

  3. This one does look tempting! Thanks for sharing...

    Here's MY WOW POST -

  4. Oh yes I definitely want to read The List. It feels like one of those books that has the potential to make a major impact on the YA age group. And as the mom of 2 girls (granted they are young girls but still..) I am interested.

    Here is my WOW:

  5. Ugh, as the aunt to my beautiful 11-year-old niece, it would break my heart to pieces for her to be picked on at school or to be called ugly. Kids can be SO cruel!

    This book sounds pretty interesting. May have to check it out :-)

    Thanks for stopping by BlookGirl, earlier!

  6. I am curious to see how this is handled in the book! It's like that site (I think that's what it's called). Good choice!

  7. Not a contemporary reader myself, but I hope you love this once it releases!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  8. This was my WoW pick a few weeks ago, great choice!

    Thanks for checking out my WoW this week. Happy Reading!

  9. OK, I've only recently discovered how much I love contemporary, and this sounds AMMAAAAZZZING!
    Totally adding this to my TBR. Thanks for sharing! <3

  10. Oooh sounds promising!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  11. I think I chose this one last week or two weeks ago! :) It sounds fabulous and horrifying and potentially life changing. Great choice!

  12. I'm glad I've got you excited about a new book. This one doesn't normally take my fancy, but the idea of having to be ranked is quite interesting. Definitely on my TBR list. Thanks xxx
