Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I'm finally back to blogging! ALA was tons of fun but very busy and then summer reading has kept me busy at work. Of course, ALA gave me lots of books to book lust over. Maybe it's my Fabulous Films Committee theme of "Song and Dance" but I've been book lusting over these ballet books!
Bunheads by Sophie Flack
About the Book: As a dancer with the ultra-prestigious Manhattan Ballet Company, nineteen-year-old Hannah Ward juggles intense rehearsals, dazzling performances and complicated backstage relationships. Up until now, Hannah has happily devoted her entire life to ballet.
But when she meets a handsome musician named Jacob, Hannah's universe begins to change, and she must decide if she wants to compete against the other "bunheads" in the company for a star soloist spot or strike out on her own in the real world. Does she dare give up the gilded confines of the ballet for the freedoms of everyday life?
Audition by Stasia Ward Kehoe
About the Book: When high school junior Sara wins a coveted scholarship to study ballet, she must sacrifice everything for her new life as a professional dancer-in-training. Living in a strange city with a host family, she's deeply lonely-until she falls into the arms of Remington, a choreographer in his early twenties. At first, she loves being Rem's muse, but as she discovers a surprising passion for writing, she begins to question whether she's chosen the right path. Is Rem using her, or is it the other way around? And is dancing still her dream, or does she need something more? This debut novel in verse is as intense and romantic as it is eloquent.
Both sound so good, don't they?
