Wishlist Wednesday #5

Property of Pen to Paper

This is a meme hosted by Dani from Pen to Paper where each blog that signs up will post about a book they want to read/cannot wait for to come out. It can be an old or a new one. Basically, it's where on a Wednesday, we will talk about an item on our Wishlist that we hope to own or read in the near future. Click here to see everyone else's beautiful Wishlist Wednesday's! 

(Picture from Goodreads is messing up, sorry!) 

She’s been six different people in six different places: Madeline in Ohio, Isabelle in Missouri, Olivia in Kentucky . . . But now that she’s been transplanted to rural Louisiana, she has decided that this fake identity will be her last.

Witness Protection has taken nearly everything from her. But for now, they’ve given her a new name, Megan Rose Jones, and a horrible hair color. For the past eight months, Meg has begged her father to answer one question: What on earth did he do – or see – that landed them in this god-awful mess? Meg has just about had it with all the Suits’ rules — and her dad’s silence. If he won’t help, it’s time she got some answers for herself.

But Meg isn’t counting on Ethan Landry, an adorable Louisiana farm boy who’s too smart for his own good. He knows Meg is hiding something big. And it just might get both of them killed. As they embark on a perilous journey to free her family once and for all, Meg discovers that there’s only one rule that really matters — survival.

Thanks to another blog (unfortunately, I cannot remember who), I saw this wonderful book! Goodness, there are a couple things that get me excited in the description. 

For starters, I love the name Meg. Might sound stupid, but Meg is just a really good name and I like it better than the full "Megan." I think part of it is because I really like a book who's main character is named Meg and the other part is that I absolutely adore Meg Ryan. You've Got Mail? Timeless. 

WATCH THIS NOW

Also, it is about witness protection program! I already like the whole "girl moves a lot and gets a new identity" story. That story is what made me most excited for Sarah Dessen's What Happened to Goodbye. However, this time, the girl HAS to get a new identity. I want to know what her real name is, what her father did, and of course, I want to know what her love interest, Ethan, is like. 

"...there's only one rule that matters -- survival." <--that line in the description above gets me really, really giddy. 

I hope to get this soon and thank you to whoever posted about this! 

--By the way, sorry about the pictures. I see that it is Blogger's fault and not Goodreads. Only letting me do it this way. Blah. 

What can you NOT wait for?

  2. Sounds interesting! BTW, Lois Duncan also has a good book about a girl and her family forced into witness protection, if you like the topic! Your WW choice looks like a really good one. Enjoy!

  6. I've seen this one, but I'm holding off for reviews before I get excited. Partly, I blame the foot cover. Also, I just don't know if it's for me. :-p Hope you love!

    1. True! Ha, yeah, didn't get exactly know why they chose her being barefoot, but I do get why they show her running. Although, it's mostly metaphorical.

      Thank you! Thanks for commenting and coming by :)
