Waiting on Wednesday (15)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine 
that highlights eagerly anticipated books.

Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
Release Date: September 13, 2012
Publisher: Dial Books

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating—Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they’re directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they’re playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?
Why can't I wait? 
Video games of death! As if they aren't bad enough for you as is, right? I'm really interested to see how the author pulls this one off. It could be awesome or it could fall completely flat... But I'll play. 


  1. Interesting concept for this one - I assume it's non-stop action. What'll be important is if the author can keep the tension and pace even throughout. Nice pick!

  2. Who doesn't love video games of death!? Want!

  3. Ooh, this one looks AWESOME!! VGoD--I'd be too chicken to play for long (I'm a bad gambler, preferring the nickel machines) but this cool. Plus, I like the trippy cover.
