Waiting on Wednesday: 10/15/14

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Immaculate

     Mina is seventeen. A virgin. And pregnant.
     Mina is top of her class, girlfriend to the most ambitious guy in school, able to reason and study her way through anything. But when she suddenly finds herself pregnant—despite having never had sex—her orderly world collapses. Almost nobody believes Mina’s claims of virginity. Her father assumes that her boyfriend is responsible; her boyfriend believes she must have cheated on him. As news of Mina’s story spreads, there are those who brand her a liar. There are those who brand her a heretic. And there are those who believe that miracles are possible—and that Mina’s unborn child could be the greatest miracle of all.

Why I'm Waiting: I'm mainly interested in this one because I've never seen a biblical re-telling in YA. And to make this one so extreme...... I'm also a little nervous about whether or not this one will be a little judgey and a little preachy. I want to know, but then again I don't. Ugh this one may be hard to get through, but I'd like to give it a shot. Maybe it will bring out some kind of secrets or something. 

What are you waiting on this week?
Will you wait on this with me?!

  2. Hmmm I wonder if it will actually be religious based or some crazy twist. You know what this reminds me of? Jane the Virgin, but that show is HILARIOUS.
