Waiting on Wednesday (13)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we "can't-wait-to-read".

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Release date:  May 27th 2010

Summary: (Taken from Goodreads)

Sixteen-year-old Maya and seventeen-year-old Lochan have never had the chance to be 'normal' teenagers. Having pulled together for years to take care of their younger siblings while their wayward, drunken mother leaves them to fend alone, they have become much more than brother and sister. And now, they have fallen in love. But this is a love that can never be allowed, a love that will have devastating consequences ...How can something so wrong feel so right? 

I first saw this over at Michelle's Bookshelf and it really caught my interest. I've never read any thing about this subject. I think it will be extremely hard to read, but worth it. Lately I've been reading those books that are uncomfortable to read about, but they have all been amazing! The release date isn't too far away either. 

Oh and the wonderful Aly from Fantsy4eva shared with me an excerpt from the book that she found. Wow is all I have to say. I strongly advise you to check it out HERE :D

Sounds...very heavy and disturbing. I probably won't be able to read this one, but I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

This does sounds interesting but really intense.. we shall see, I guess.

Great pick. I haven't heard of this one, but will have to check it out. I agree with Britt- it sounds good, but intense!

Jami said...

Oh, wow. This is problably one of the hardest subjects to read about. But I agree with you, some of the books that make you the most uncomfortable turn out to be the most amazing. Thanks for letting me know about this one!

Jessica said...

Ack! I think I'll probably have to check out some reviews before I pick this one up.

Eek! Very bizarre. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

Amelia said...

ohhh reminds me a little of FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC (first book that made me feel really icky) Can't wait to see what you think of it!

Serpentine Librarian said...

Wow, definitely a heavy subject, but it does happen. It will really depend on the writing and how the author handles this very delicate issue. Thanks for putting this book on my radar.

Erika said...

intense! i'd love to read your review on it :)

Michelle said...

So true that books which are usually uncomfortable to read end up being the most amazing. There's always so much to learn from each novel that really goes there. This one is a must read for me. :)

Ky said...

Hmmm kind of sounds like How I Live Now, which was really good, really short, and well it was her cousin not her brother so it was slightly less disturbing.

I love how when it was revealed in City of Bones that Clary and Jace were brother and sister that everyone was just like "IT'S MEANT TO BE!" and had no issue at all with them being siblings, yet at other books which do the same thing they go "ew that is so wrong" Lolz. *rolls eyes* The Egyptians and Romans did it. And plenty of other cultures. It's only in more modern times that it has become unacceptable anyway. Hahaha. Weird to think about huh?

Anywho small rant aside, this sounds very good. ^.^

Melissa said...

I love the sound of this one...even if it isn't too original...great choice! :)

Wow, Ky, thanks for the spoiler warning...
