Waiting On Wednesday: Ten

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: Purity
Author: Jackson Pearce
Publication Date: 24 April 2012
Summary (courtesy of goodreads.com):
Before her mother died, Shelby promised three things: to listen to her father, to love as much as possible, and to live without restraint. Those Promises become harder to keep when Shelby's father joins the planning committee for the Princess Ball, an annual dance that ends with a ceremonial vow to live pure lives -- in other words, no "bad behavior," no breaking the rules, and definitely no sex.

Torn between Promises One and Three, Shelby makes a decision -- to exploit a loophole and lose her virginity before taking the vow. But somewhere between failed hookup attempts and helping her dad plan the ball, Shelby starts to understand what her mother really meant, what her father really needs, and who really has the right to her purity.
I love this cover so much I want to like, design my whole house around it.  And the book sounds good too, yeah?


  1. I've heard great things about Jackson Pearce and I really like the themes this book sounds like it will touch on. Great pick!

  2. Purity sounds so good! Jackson Pearce is an amazing writer, and I'm dying to read how she does contemporary. Great pick! :)

    my WOW.

  3. I've actually thought about reading this one. I like the idea of her wanting to lose her virginity to keep her promise to her mom but then not having sex to keep her promise to her dad. Sounds like a lot of torn feelings. Hopefully she figures out what is best for her!
    My WOW
