Waiting on Wednesday: She’s Too Pretty To Burn

51591602Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.

She’s Too Pretty To Burn

Author: Wendy Heard

Publisher: Henry Holt

Release Date: March 30, 2021

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

Why I’m Excited: 

I love me a good YA thriller, and I love me a good classic retelling. Win, win. I’m very excited for this, so you know I’ll be keeping my eyes out for this one.

  1. This sounds interesting! I am not a huge fan of The Picture of Dorian Gray, admittedly, but murder I can do. Well, read about in a novel, anyway. 🙂 I hope you enjoy this when you read it!


  2. Man, I’ve not seen this one before and it sounds like something I just have to read! Thanks for sharing such an awesome pick!
