Waiting on Wednesday: The Karma Club

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted each week by Breaking the Spine , in which a book blogger spotlights an upcoming release that he/she is "waiting" on.

This week I am waiting on The Karma Club by Jessica Brody. This is the YA debut for the author and, although I don't usually read a lot of YA, I am waiting on this one for 2 reasons:
  1. I read The Fidelity Files and Love Under Cover: A Novel (read my review here) which are adult titles by the same author and I really liked them - good character development and likeable characters
  2. I have committed as part of the 2010 Challenge to read 2 YA novels, so why not start with this one?

Check out the is the author's website for more info on the book. In the meantime here are some quotes from reviews:

“All the fun and intrigue of Gossip Girl with the heart of a Sarah Dessen novel and the soul of the I Ching. ” --Gabrielle Zevin, bestselling author of ELSEWHERE and MEMOIRS OF A TEENAGE AMNESIAC

“Equal parts fresh, funny, and engaging, THE KARMA CLUB is the story of one girl’s attempt to speed karma along only to discover that karma plays by its own rules. Jessica Brody has created a witty, endearing, heroine in Maddy Kasparkova—this is one YA debut you won’t want to miss!” --Alyson Noel, #1 New York Times bestselling author of EVERMORE and BLUE MOON

This releases April 27, 2010.

What are you waiting on?
