Waiting on Wednesday: Ask Me, by Kimberly Pauley

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine to spotlight upcoming book releases that we're excited about.

This week's pick
Release date: April 8, 2014
Publisher: Soho Teen
Format: Hardcover, 304 pages

Goodreads description:
Ask Aria Morse anything, and she must answer with the truth. Yet she rarely understands the cryptic words she‘s compelled to utter. Blessed—or cursed—with the power of an Oracle who cannot decipher her own predictions, she does her best to avoid anyone and everyone.

But Aria can no longer hide when Jade, one of the few girls at school who ever showed her any kindness, disappears. Any time Aria overhears a question about Jade, she inadvertently reveals something new, a clue or hint as to why Jade vanished. But like stray pieces from different puzzles, her words never present a clear picture.

Then there’s Alex, damaged and dangerous, but the first person other than Jade to stand up for her. And Will, who offers a bond that seems impossible for a girl who’s always been alone. Both were involved with Jade. Aria may be the only one who can find out what happened, but the closer she gets to solving the crime, the more she becomes a target. Not everyone wants the truth to come out.


I love the idea of a modern-age teen oracle! I'm very curious to see how Aria deals with her gift/curse. The murder mystery element is also intriguing. I just hope I'm reading the signs wrong and there is no love triangle. In what way were these two boys involved with Jade? And what does that mean for Aria? Plus, I like that this seems to be a standalone.
Have you heard of Ask Me? What do you think?

  7. I saw this on a WoW a couple of months ago, I think, and immediately added it because yes, a modern day oracle sounds pretty awesome. Whenever I see two boys names mentioned in a synopsis, I'm a little wary, but since it doesn't explicitly say love triangle in there, I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt. :)
