Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine. This week I'm going to write about The Hit List by Nikki Urang. Let's get started. :)
The Los Angeles Conservatory for the Arts is supposed to be a new beginning for Sadie Bryant. Moving across the country is exactly what she needs to escape the gossip surrounding her injury, the devastating betrayal of her ex-partner, and to rebuild her career as a solo dancer.
When the school announces that the annual Fall Showcase, a performance that secures a spot studying in London, will now require each dancer to have a partner, Sadie’s fresh start is a nightmare. Now she has to dance with Luke Morrison, the school womanizer with a big ego. Sadie doesn’t know how to trust Luke enough to dance with him after her last partner left her broken, but Luke is determined to change that.
Then, The Hit List comes out. A game of sexual conquest where guys get points for all the girls they hook up with—and it seems like every guy at the school is playing.
The girl worth the most points? Sadie.
This is the part where I would start obsessing about how amazing the story seems to be and tell you why did it catch my attention in the first place, but actually I'm not sure why I want to read this so much. I mean the story seems a bit dumb and as far as it seems at this point the romance won't be that much original either. ("she has to dance with Luke Morrison, the school womanizer with a big ego")
Anyway, I love books about dancers and this seems like dancing isn't just a topic mentioned a few times throughout the book. I said I have no idea why I want to read this but I do want to read it more than most of the books I'm currently waiting for and this is why it get a Waiting on Wednesday Post.
What book(s) are you most waiting for at the moment? Link in your WoW post in the comments or just write down the title if you don't have a blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
