Waiting on Wednesday


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started at Breaking the Spine bookblog, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I like to list a few reasons why this book made the top of my 'wish list', but it's purely up to you!

Here's my pick for this week:


Title: Fallen

Author: Lauren Kate

Publication Date: December 8th, 2009

Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

Summary (Amazon):

Seventeen-Year-Old Luce is a new student at Sword & Cross, an unwelcoming boarding/reform school in Savannah, Georgia. Luce’s boyfriend died under suspicious circumstances, and now she carries the guilt over his death with her as she navigates the unfriendly halls at Sword & Cross, where every student seems to have an unpleasant—even evil—history.

It’s only when she sees Daniel, a gorgeous fellow student, that Luce feels there’s a reason to be here—though she doesn’t know what it is. And Daniel’s frosty cold demeanor toward her? It’s really a protective device that he’s used again . . . and again. For Daniel is a fallen angel, doomed to fall in love with the same girl every 17 years . . . and watch her die. And Luce is a fellow immortal, cursed to be reincarnated again and again as a mortal girl who has no idea of who she really is.

Why Do I Want This?

1- Two words: YA Paranormal. I'm in!

2- It's about fallen angels-- not something I've seen in a lot of books lately.

3- The cover-- really, isn't that half of the reason why we read a book? Maybe even 3/4 of the reason? And this cover is beautiful! (Although I'm not completely sure if this is the US release cover or not, I had a hard time even finding this cover on the 'net, and no one I've asked is sure either....)

Until Next Time,

This looks like a good book! I'll have to keep and eye out for it. My co-worker gave me a gift card for Borders for my birthday so I'm making a shopping list.

Smiles :-)

HEY Jenine!

I have to say, I don't think I've ever seen you anyone but LT or GoodReads. :D Welcome to my blog, I hope you enjoy, feel free to look around. But be warned-- it is definitely bad for your TBR/wish list piles! :D

Ooh, I hope you find some great books for your B-Day! ;) And I know this one has already gone on to the top of my X-Mas wish list. It looks like it should be great!
