Waiting on Wednesday, May 27th

Hello Darlings!

I have added some more new releases to my TBR (rip me) that I’ve been eyeing for a while… and some that I saw while browsing them… so it’s time for Waiting on Wednesday!

Today’s book is a YA psychological thriller about artists and friends and lovers AND a retelling of The Picture of Dorian Gray!

Can you guess?

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.


Title: She’s Too Pretty to Burn

Author: Wendy Heard

Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

Release Date: March 30th 2021

Pages: 256

Genres:  Contemporary | Retellings | YA | LGBT


Inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray, this sexy psychological thriller explores the intersections of love, art, power and violence. For fans of E. Lockhart, Lauren Oliver and Kara Thomas.

The summer is winding down in San Diego. Veronica is bored, caustically charismatic, and uninspired in her photography. Nico is insatiable, subversive, and obsessed with chaotic performance art. They’re artists first, best friends second. But that was before Mick. Delicate, lonely, magnetic Mick: the perfect subject, and Veronica’s dream girl. The days are long and hot—full of adventure—and soon they are falling in love. Falling so hard, they never imagine what comes next.

One fire. Two murders. Three drowning bodies. One suspect… one stalker. This is the summer they won’t survive.

New love spirals into lethal danger in this expertly plotted YA thriller.


  • inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray
  • sexy psychological thriller
  • the intersections of love, art, power and violence

Honestly, the fact that this is GAY is a cherry on top of it. Now make me read the OG The Picture of Dorian Gray before this is out, please. I’m so hopeless with classics.
