Waiting on Wednesday: Such a Rush

Time for another amazing Wednesday! :)

Waiting On Wednesday
is a weekly event, hosted by the awesome Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating! This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols
Release Date: July 10, 2012
Series: N/A
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon CA | The Book Depository
A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.

High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.    

But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly.

(summary taken from Goodreads)
Three of Mimi's Deep Dark Secrets: 
  1. Mimi loves books about brothers. It's probably not healthy to love them both and it's probably not good, but she can't help but be attracted to boys with the same last name!
  2. Mimi has always wanted to fly like a bird! She used to be terrified of airplane rides, but now she really likes them. And the food. And the strange pillows. And the roller coaster sensation. And the excuse to chew gum like a madman.
  3. Mimi succumbs to peer pressure easily. With all of her friends gushing about this book like CRAZY, how could she be able to resist???
And those are three reasons why I really, really want to read Such a Rush!! ;)



P.S. My first exam is tomorrow (!!!) and I'm so nervous! Hopefully it will be okay? :')


  1. Mimi! It's always the brothers that's a girl's downfall. But I think I've come up with a good solution in such cases: I get one brother, and you get the other! And then we can always switch! Haha. Kidding!

    Good luck on your exams tomorrow! Here, have some of my magical smarty dust!

  2. Oh my goodness Mimi what a great choice!! Seriously OMG! :) I have a feeling that you are going to love this one!! I sure did!! AND I also have a feeling that you are going to love Grayson. He was such a hottie. <3 I love books about brothers too, and Grayson and Alec are really epic brothers. :D I love flying too! When I was 5 years old, I really wanted to be a pilot even though I had an irrational fear of airplanes. But now I love them! I'm actually going to Italy on this Friday and I'm so looking forward to that long flight! Can't wait to watch all those movies and basically burn my eyes out LOL. Awesome sauce pick as usual, Mimi sweetie!!! Doll, we could really be soul-sisters or something!! Maybe we were Gypsy sisters or something in our past lives ;) I love you forever and ever, Mimi-doll!! <3

    1. Aaaw Mimi I'm sure you'll do EPICLY awesome in your exams, chicky!! You are practically MADE of awesomeness, how on earth could you not??? My exams don't start until next year, when I'll be in High school, and I am SO nervous. :( Anyway... you ROCK my socks off Mimi-doll!! <3 Don't worry because you are super smart, and cool and awesome and amazing. :) You'll do awesome!! After you're done, and you pass and do amazing, let me know because then I'll be like 'I knew it!! See, Mimi?? You rock!' LOL. Best, best of luck sweetie!! I'm gonna focus all my energy on you doing awesome on your exams!! <3 ILY girl!

  3. Good luck on your exams Mimi! I'm sure you'll do well. Just think of all the books you'll be able to read once all your exams are over.

    This book has such an original premise. I didn't even know teenagers were allowed to fly their own planes! Awesome.

  4. Great pick Mimi. I can't wait to read this!
    Good luck with you're exams coming up. Donna xoxo

  5. I'm not sure how I feel about the obvious love triangle here, but MAN it sounds SO COOL. And good luck on your exams, too! I'm sure you'll do great!

    My WoW

  6. It sounds so awesome ! Jennifer at Some Like It Paranormal wrote a gushing review about this book and she said not to worry about the love triangle. :)
    So I can't wait either !!!
    I love Jennifer Echols ! :D :D
    Good luck for your exams tomorrow, hon. :) I'm sure you'll pass with flying colors. :)

  7. LOL I am with you on brothers. I don't why I like them either, and it is probably a recipe for disaster but oh well! Great pick this week!

    Good luck on your exams! :)

    My W.O.W.

  8. Yes! I am really eager to read this too after all the awesome reviews. I haven't read anything by Jennifer Echols before but I hear nothing but praise for her writing. Definitely looking forward to this book!

    Good luck with your exam Mimi! I'm sure you will do fantastically! :D

  9. The thing that makes me nervous about this book is the love triangle with brothers-it's one thing with guys who hate each other or who are best friends. But boys who share the same blood kind of creeps me out. I know that doesn't bother everyone but that's what I'm most worried about when reading this.

    Good luck on your exams-I'm sure you've been studying and are well-prepared to rock it!

  10. Great pick. This sounds like the kind of book I really like. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Oh Mimi, I can't wait to read this one too! An amazing cover, alluring and captivating synopsis, and the idea of TWO brothers to fall for? I'm definitely sold on needing to consume this!

    Thank you for sharing and have a great rest of your week! <3<3<3

  13. I love Echols' other books so this is on my TBR.

    My WOW:

  14. I succumb to book pressure easily too! If people tell me something is good repeatedly, I have to see what all the fuss is about and read it for myself. I've heard this book is AMAZING and I can't wait to get my hands on it. LET'S CAVE TO PRESSURE TOGETHER MIMI!!!!

  15. AWESOME pick, Mimi! I'm sooo excited about this one too and the reviews I've read so far have been VERY promising!

    Good luck with your exams! I know you'll do really well! :D

  16. Cute! Good luck with the exams!!

  17. Such a wonderful pick this week, Mimi <3 I so so so want to read this book too especially because there's two brothers: I can't wait to drool over Alec and Grayson! And the reasons you gave for wanting to read it were just super cute <3 But I totally agree, the boys do sound utterly gorgeous and I can't ignore the rave reviews on it :D I hope we both get to read this book soon and then maybe we can gush about the brothers together! <3

    1. Oh and forgot to say, GOOD LUCK on the exams! I bet you'll do really well :) Mine are all over, just have to wait until August for the results :( But I can tell you it feels amazing once they're all finished and done with! Good luck x1,000,000 again <3

  18. Ohmigod, you're so right, the reviews are all wonderful! I am excited about this one as well.
    Btw, the three facts about you... they all apply to me too!
    Isn't the cover just gorgeous? I could stare at it all day!

  19. Three Facts about Missie:

    1. Missie also loves stories about brothers!
    2. Missie is a fan of people who talk about themselves in third person
    3. Missie also can't wait to read this book, even though she is deathly afraid of heights and flying.

    P.S. Good luck on your exam!

  20. I just came out of an exam [History] and have another one tomorrow [French... SPEAKING!! ): ]. But the best of luck to you! Which subject is it?

  23. I've heard such fantastic things about this book!! I seriously can't wait until it's released. Plus, they synopsis is so unique!! I've never read a book about flying airplanes before, so this should definitely be interesting. Can't wait to read it! =)

    Good luck on your first exam!!

    -Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life

  24. Though I won't probably read this I have to admit it does sound interesting. A pilot and brothers pining for the same girl, that's one delicious chaos waiting to happen

    Talk Supe WoW

  25. Oooh I'm excited for this book too! I love Jennifer Echols's love stories! Great pick! :)
    And good luck with the exam!!

  26. Ha ha, it really isn't healthy to be in love with brothers! I've read a couple of Echols' books and some have been good but some haven't. I'm hoping this one falls in the good category.

  27. Great choice! Such a Ruch sounds really good, I just add it to my TBR list.
    Good luck on your exams.

    My WOW

  28. Haha, this sounds really good! I think I've already added it, I'll have to check. ;) Good luck with your exam! :)

  29. Good luck with your exam!
    This week I'm desperately waiting for The Evolution of Mara Dyer- it doesn't come out for months, but it's all I want!
    I'm glad you liked The Selection- since I posted the list a few people jave told me how awesome it was and it's really encouraging to hear that a lot of people liked it! I'd be tempted to give it five stars just for that cover!
    I was really shocked to see the cover for Breaking Point too- it's so prettyful!

  30. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR EXAM! <3 That being said, ohmigosh I was about to pick this one for today! And those reasons you listed? They apply 100% to me, too! :D Brothers (I love reading about family relationships, really), flying (my favorite kind of superpower)...

    I hope we can read it soon! :) And again, good luck! You'll do just fine. Relax. Sleep. And then, go for it, you can, Mimi! <3

  31. Ha ha loved your little list! Yes the reviews are looking really good for this one. And no I don't think you are immature at all to adddress your comment on my blog yesterday, you are fun and spunky and jusr adorable and I love your sunshiney comments!

  32. Aw, I've always wanted to feel like a bird too, haha!

    Good luck on your exam, Mimi ;)

    And awesome pick this week! :)

  33. I've actually never finished a Jennifer Echols book, to be honest! Well, I started Forget You, but put it down because I wasn't enjoying it very much. I know a lot of people LOVE Jennifer's books, so I hope you love Such a Rush as well! :D The cover is certainly gorgeousss. Oh, and good luck on your exam, Mimi! Not that you need it. ;)

  34. Great pick! I have yet to read a single book by Echols. Such A Rush sounds so good. I'll have to grab a copy.

  35. I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mimi, you have read my mind. I mean, brothers? So hot. Planes? Scary and flipping awesome - all at once! I love getting the little plastic cups that are shaped funny and watching them pour cranberry juice into it and fill it with ice and set it down with a napkin. I always get cranberry juice. :D AND...yessssssss!! If everyone says it's good, which they do, I just can't resist!! :D

    I love how twinsie we are, darling. ;)

    Sierra @ Yearning to Read

  36. LOL Mimi! I love books about brothers too but sometimes I try to avoid them too because I don't wanna get torn between them, I always tend to love them both. Haha! Anyway, I'm so really looking forward for his one too. After reading Rachel's 5-star review I became even more excited! *Yeah, I easily succumb to peer pressure too* Can't wait to meet Leah and Grayson! :D

  37. Good luck to you on your exams Mimi!! You're so smart I'm sure you'll ace them.

    As you know Mimi, I loved this book so of course I think this is a fab choice. I hope you enjoy Grayson *cough* I mean, IT as much as I did!! Heehee. ;)

  38. Hehe, have I mentioned that I love you today? WHAT?! NO?! :O MIMI, I LOVE YOOOOOOOOU! Mimi, I doooo. When we're apart my heart beats only for yooou <3 Sorry, every time I type "Name, I love you" I always think of the song from Goblet of Fire :P

    ANYWAY! I am so excited for this book! Even though I have STILL yet to read a Jennifer Echols novel *sigh*


  39. LOL. Mimi, I just love your deep dark secrets! And this does sound good! And you will do great on your exams! Good vibes are coming your way!

  40. A book about brothers ... that's, well, hot ... This book sounds so good!

  41. Awesome pick Mimi! We can both count down the days until the awesome book, it sounds amazing and the fact that there are all these gushing reviews everywhere wants me to read it asap! I'm sure we'll both love it! Btw I hope your exam goes okay! :)

  42. Aww, Mimi, you're so cute! <3 How could there be anyone as lovely as you? x) Hehe, I don't think it's healthy (and safe!) to be attracted to boys with the same last name, but I know that it's inevitable! There's just something with brothers. :P I can't wait for this book either, especially given so many awesome reviews about this! Hopefully we both would end up loving it! <3

    I know you'll do great on your exam! Good luck hun! :)

  43. I've heard good things about this too. I do like books about brothers...but I don't like flying! LOL

    Hope your exam went well. I'm sure it did. :)

    Also, I've seen this!! I didn't recall the title (*hangs head*), but that cover is hard to forget. I love it o: It sounds great and as a perfect match for our beloved Mimi. ;)

  47. I love plane rides when there aren't any screaming babies or kids, haha. Otherwise, it's a VERY annoying plane ride! I'm really looking forward to this book too and it seems like people are loving it. Yay for contemps with brothers! I hope your exam went well, Mimi! x

  48. Great WoW choice!!!! My exams are now over so I am a lot more relaxed! I hope your exams go well too :-) Good luck!!!!!!

    1) I like brothers too! And umm no! Who said it was unhealthy??!?! would be unhealthy if we were totally obsessing over brother's who actually don't exist in the real world!

    2) I am still scared of air plane rides and roller coaster rides... and chewing gum just makes me feel more nauseas lol!!!

    3) Awesome!!!! Your friends love books too...YAY!!! That's friends aren't all the biggest fans lol!


Thanks so much for leaving your thoughts! I love hearing what you have to say, and I always try to comment on one of your blog posts in return! :)
