Waiting on Wednesday: Speechless by Hannah Harrington

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
meant to spotlight an upcoming release we're eagerly awaiting!

Speechless by Hannah Harrington
Harlequin Teen, 336 Pages
Expected US Release Date: August 28, 2012

The story of a girl named Chelsea Knot who takes a voluntary oath of silence after her gossip-mongering ways yield unexpected consequences…
------------------Goodreads summary.

Not much of a summary yet, right? Still, it sounds like it could be a really brilliant, funny and moving novel - and after how much I loved Saving June (review here!), I'm really looking forward to her follow up!

What are your thoughts on the cover? It's stark (and truthfully, I thought it was just a placeholder!), but Harlequin is saying it'll have embossed lettering and a shimmery paper treatment. I think it could be beautiful!

(I don't even know if you can see it! I swear it's there to the left, or click on either the picture of the link to see it better.)

What book are you eagerly awaiting?

    Yes I'm super excited for this one! I featured it a few weeks ago too! I loved Saving June and the short summary is enough to know it will be very emotional! Thanks for stopping by!

    I've just discovered Saving June and it's on my TBR list today. And now I'm adding this as well! Thanks for sharing and stopping by.

    This sounds like it could be a petty funny read, it's definitely going on my wishlist!

    This one does sound interesting even with such a small blurb. Great pick.

    Dude! That cover's simplicity strikes me after my eyes are so sick of those beautiful ladies and elegant dresses. Very fresh indeed. And about that oath, I think I can relate deeply with the protag. xD

    My Waiting on Wednesday!

    Great choice, Ashley!! And OMG I love the cover. Sometimes, less really is more. It's simple and really powerful. Also, the title is fabulous! Even though the summary hasn't been released yet, and I know I'm going out on a limb, I think this book is going to be great. I can just feel it!! :P Awesome choice sweetie! <3

    Sounds interesting - both the cover and the blurb seem perfect to me since the subject is a girl promising to not communicate. I bet the cover will be gorgeous in person.

    Nice pick!

  10. Caitlen RBJune 6, 2012 at 5:05 AM

    That's an awesome cover. Guru and Johanna are right, the simplicity is really eye-catching, and I feel like it's a cover that'll really pop on the shelves. I'm going to have to pick this one up!

    Oh, I thought it was a placeholder as well! Not sure if that is the effect the publisher's wanted though! I LOVED Saving June, so after reading it I hopped online right away to see what was next for Harrington. I can't wait to read this one too!

  13. Michael @ The Bookshelf ReviewJune 6, 2012 at 9:23 AM

    Great pick. It does sound like it could be very awesome book. Thanks for sharing and visiting my WoW. =]

    Nice pick! This does sound very interesting. Thanks for stopping by!

  19. HollieJune 6, 2012 at 12:58 PM

    Oooh, I definitely want to read this one too! I really love how simple the cover is too. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  20. Andrea @ The Overstuffed BookcaseJune 6, 2012 at 1:10 PM

    This book does sound really great, doesn't it? And I thought that cover was a placeholder, too! I kinda like it, though! It seems to really go with the story! Great pick, Ashley!

  21. UnknownJune 6, 2012 at 1:33 PM

    hm... I didn't really like Saving June, so not sure about this one. maybe once a full summary is released I'll think about it. :p

    thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy Speechless when you get it. :)

  22. JenniferJune 6, 2012 at 2:23 PM

    Ohhh. This sounds different. Definitely will be checking it out. Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my post :)

  23. AyleeJune 6, 2012 at 4:05 PM

    haha, yeah I didn't even notice the cover until you pointed it out! I don't know, maybe the blankness of the cover is meant to symbolize the oath of silence? Thanks for stopping by my blog, by the way!

  24. Traci @ The Reading GeekJune 6, 2012 at 7:09 PM

    Great pick! I heard about this one recently and it sounds really good. I'm not crazy about the cover but I definitely want to get this one.

    Thanks for stopping by my post!

  25. Shooting Stars MagJune 6, 2012 at 9:22 PM

    Wow, I thought that was a "fake" cover as well. I think it could be pretty too, but I'm afraid it might not stand out though...especially when viewing it online. At any rate, it sounds pretty interesting from the brief summary.


  26. KimJune 6, 2012 at 11:03 PM

    Ahh, I LOVED Saving June and I can't wait to get my hands on Hannah's new book! Plus, you're right about the cover--I think a plain white cover will look PERFECT and so so shiny! :D Fantastic pick and thanks for stopping by!

  27. UnknownJune 6, 2012 at 11:16 PM

    The cover? What cover? Where? Oh, that one. Slipped my poor eyesight, that did. Although I guess it would look very catchy in a bookstore with its snowiness showing through all the other dark YA covers. Loved Saving June, so of course I'm looking forward to this! Thanks for stopping by :)

    I must know more! I had to refresh my screen a few times because I thought that the cover wasn't showing lol It totally blends in! Thanks for sharing :)
