Waiting on Wednesday: 8/28/13

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!

Side Effects May Vary

     What if you’d been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you? 
     When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, her prognosis is grim. To maximize the time she does have, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs—however she sees fit. She convinces her friend Harvey, whom she knows has always had feelings for her, to help her with a crazy bucket list that’s as much about revenge (humiliating her ex-boyfriend and getting back at her arch nemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger and reliving some childhood memories). But just when Alice’s scores are settled, she goes into remission.
     Now Alice is forced to face the consequences of all that she’s said and done, as well as her true feelings for Harvey. But has she done irreparable damage to the people around her, and to the one person who matters most? 
     Julie Murphy’s SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY is a fearless and moving tour de force about love, life, and facing your own mortality.

Why I'm Waiting: I know you all can tell by all my recent reviews that I've been on a "contemp with a bigger issue" kick for the longest. And this one is just ASKING to feed my addiction. Plus, I've already started thinking about what I want to put on my bucket list and I haven't even started reading this one yet! Plus, I love the cover. It was one of the reasons I added it to my TBR pile lol
