Waiting on Wednesday: NERVE (28)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I am waiting on...
NERVE by Jeanne Ryan

Expected Publication Date: September 13, 2012
Publisher: Dial Books
SynopsisA high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly

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 I'm Waiting: This book sounds creepy and thrilling. It reminds me a lot of L.J. Smith's The Forbidden Game. Just reading the synopsis makes my heart pound! And the cover. Doesn't it make your eyes widen? I'm so excited for NERVE. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Yeah, I definitely want to check this one out. As a gamer this sounds like something I could have a nightmare about. It will be interesting to see how the author tackles this idea and what actually happens.

  27. Intense and thrilling, my kind of thing, indeed. I just like the idea of a boy and girl going through the these... trials, I guess, with the WHOLE WORLD watching ALL THE THINGS happen. I love. And with that creepy, agonized cover, I'm all in.

    Have an amazing reading week!

  31. Wow... this sounds so... Wow. I'm adding it right away. Hadn't heard of it before, but who can resist such a summary? (*cough* and cover, too *cough*). I have some strange fascination when it comes to the game of truth or dare. So, yep.

    Thanks for sharing, Sophia! :D
