Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we just can't wait to get our sticky fingers on.

Title: All These Things I've Done
Author: Babrielle Zevin
Published: September 6, 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads

In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser ex-boyfriend. That is until her ex is accidently poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight--at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.

We here at Paranormal Wastelands are super mondo excited about this book because in case there ever is a chocolate shortage Darkfallen and Greta need to know how to be prepared. We fear it wouldn't end well for we are both chocoholics who scream

Must have NOWS!We needs it!!

We can't lives without it!!
