Breaking the Spine where you share the the books you are anticipating.
So here is what I'm eagerly anticipating this week :)
Luminous by Dawn Metcalf
When sixteen-year-old Consuela discovers she can remove her skin, revealing a lustrous mother-of-pearl skeleton, she slips into a parallel world known as the Flow, a place inhabited by archetypal teens with extraordinary abilities. Crafting skins out of anything – air, water, feathers, fire – she is compelled to save ordinary people from dying before their time. Yet now someone is murdering them, one by one, and Consuela finds herself the focus of an intricate plot to end the Flow forever when all she really wants is to get back home, alive. Goodreads
How awesome does that sound? So interesting and completely not done before. And the cover is just sensational, so pretty. I think it is a 2011 author debut so it can be used in the 2011 author debut challenge hosted by The Story Siren.
Abandon by Meg Cabot
She knows what it's like to die. Now Death wants her back.
Seventeen-year-old Pierce knows what happens to us when we die.
That's how she met John Hayden, the mysterious stranger who's made returning to normal life—or at least life as Pierce knew it before the accident—next to impossible.
Though she thought she escaped him—starting a new school in a whole new place—it turns out she was wrong. He finds her.
What does John want from her? Pierce thinks she knows... just like she knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly Heaven. But she can't stay away from him, either, especially since he's always there when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she might find herself back in the place she fears the most. Goodreads
Well, for starters, it's Meg Cabot. That is reason enough to want to. The cover is super gorgeous. It is a paranormal series and I am so excited to read it. It looks like its going to full of mystery and darkness. I can't wait for it to come out!
So that is what I've waiting for this week. What are you waiting for?
