{Waiting on Wednesday} A Study In Little Mean Girl

Dead Little Mean Girl

by Eva Darrows
Published on March 28th 2017
by Harlequin Teen
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary

Also by this author: The Awesome, The Awesome

Quinn Littleton was a mean girl—a skinny blonde social terrorist in stilettos. She was everything Emma MacLaren hated. Until she died.

A proud geek girl, Emma loves her quiet life on the outskirts, playing video games and staying off the radar. When her nightmare of a new stepsister moves into the bedroom next door, her world is turned upside down. Quinn is a queen bee with a nasty streak who destroys anyone who gets in her way. Teachers, football players, her fellow cheerleaders—no one is safe.

Emma wants nothing more than to get this girl out of her life, but when Quinn dies suddenly, Emma realizes there was more to her stepsister than anyone ever realized.

A meaningful and humorous exploration of teen stereotypes and grief, Dead Little Mean Girl examines the labels we put on people and what lies beyond if we're only willing to look closer.

Why I’m waiting: I was so surprised when I read The Awesome. In a good way. Because it was, no pun intended, awesome and hilarious. So I hope this book will be just as much fun and just as hilarious as that one was. It sounds fantastic and I love the cover. So count me in!

A Study in Scarlet Women

by Sherry Thomas
Series: Lady Sherlock #1
Published on October 18th 2016
by Berkley
Genres: Historical Fiction, Mystery, Retelling

Also by this author: The Burning Sky, The Perilous Sea, A Study in Scarlet Women, A Conspiracy in Belgravia (Lady Sherlock, #2)

USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down…

With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London.

When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her. But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.

Why I’m waiting: Historical fiction? A female Sherlock Holmes? By Sherry Thomas?  Yes please!! As you know, I love The Burning Sky series and I will read anything by Thomas 🙂

What are you waiting for this week?

  1. Did you see Study in Scarlet Woman was up on NG, Liza? I love Sherry Thomas’ writing so I’m excited for it too.
    Dead Little Mean Girls sounds like it’s emotional and funny so I have to check it out.
    Great picks, ladies!

  2. Honestly, I don’t even know which of these I’d tackle first. I LOVE THE SOUND OF BOTH SO VERY, VERY MUCH. Sherlock and I go waaaaay back (pre-Cumberbatch and pre-RDJ, let’s just say), and I have yet to be disappointed. But Dead Little Mean Girl sounds like my faaaaaavorite sort of contemporary (also, that title? 😀 ) and I JUST CAN’T WAIT, HONESTLY.

    Neither of these was in my TBR or on my radar at all. You girls are life-savers, and bless you all.

      THAT’S TOTALLY A LEXIE TITLE ISN’T IT? Ahaha 😛 And of course. *flips hair* We’re here to make your TBR grow to dangerous heights until it probably crushes you. You’re welcome.

  3. I’ve not heard of the first book! The mean girls theme isn’t something I usually like, even if it’s a reformed mean girl. I am, however, excited to read Sherry Thomas’s latest. I didn’t request it from NetGalley but I may, when my September review pile seems less overwhelming. 😀 I hope you all enjoy these books when you get the chance to read them!

  4. A FEMALE SHERLOCK HOLMES AHHHHHHHHH. *composes self* 😂 Dead Little Mean Girl sounds interesting but I’m not sure! ahhh, it’s reminding me of Kill The Boyband which I didn’t like. BUT I DO LIKE THE MINIMALISM COVER!!

  5. Nathan

    I read A Study in Scarlet last years so A Study in Scarlet Women could be interesting. Dead little Mean Girl doesn’t sound like my normal read at first, yet it sounds like there is more too it beneath the surface.

  6. Dead Little Mean Girl is not something I would pick up right away but seeing as it seems to be funny I think I would give it a shot if I had the chance. 😀 And of course I love the sound of A Study in Scarlet Women! I think it will be so awesome. ♥

  7. Ooh both are great choices! The first one’s summary is really unqiue I’ve never read anything of the sort before. Also oddly enough it was giving me serious Cinderella vibes. As for the Sherlock retelling I can’t agree more, that combination is unbearably perfect. Also this is the second time I’ve seen Charlotte uses for a female version of Sherlock, hmmm.
