Weekly Obsessions

The awesome Kelly at KellyVision started posting a weekly post highlighting whatever she happened to be obsessed with that week. I LOVE this idea, so much in fact that I will be doing it myself every Saturday.

A smaller obsessions post this week! Here are my obsessions this week:


When I Wake by Elizabeth Norris

I was sold the second I read this synopsis! Boardwalk Empire with a twist.
Winter's Bone meets Boardwalk Empire. It takes place in present day, but in a world where Prohibition was never repealed. Seventeen-year-old Maya Whitaker is forced into working as a criminal informant for the Feds in an effort to take down the current king of organized crime, despite the fact that she's falling in love with his heir apparent, nineteen-year-old Charlie Hollier.
This is not coming out until 2015 and I am already DYING to get my hands on it. The Prohibition era is fascinating and I loved the fashion. I hope that comes into play. The twist of Prohibition never being repealed sounds like a lot of fun. If you need this book (like I do), be sure to add it to your Goodreads list.



Is it historically accurate? NO, but it sure is delicious fun. I root for Francis and Bash as brothers, and love their relationship. I want Mary and Francis to be together (so so so much). I take delight in the eye candy that the show offers (hello, Toby Regbo). I hope that this show does not go the route of the love triangle with Bash/Mary/Francis but otherwise I am loving it's fun, twisty storyline.

So what are you obsessed with this week?

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
