Waiting On Wednesday ( #1 )

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by  Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases  that we're eagerly anticipating. 

By: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Expected publication: September 18th 2012 
Spencer Hill Press
Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.

Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?

But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she’s not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.

Angels Thoughts: I have read Half Blood and Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout before and i loved it! I bet i will love Cursed too. Why is that? First of all the cover is gorgeous i mean seriously look at it don't you just love it? Second of all  the summary is really interesting and you would want more of it. Lastly Hayden seems like a guy to die for.

Cover Reveal: INBETWEEN by Tara Fuller

INBETWEEN ( Kiss by Death #1 )
By: Tara Fuller
Release Date: August, 2012
Entangled Teen

Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky—and unending—lesson in caution. Surviving “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.

It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left…his soul.
Angels Thoughts: 
Okay first of all i would like to say that once i saw the cover for INBETWEEN it took my breath away i was in awe of the cover i love how the green stands out and how the girl looks on the cover. To top that off once i read the summary i was intrigued into the book completely it filled my head with questions. I haven't read the first book Kissed By Death yet but i will defidently be checking that book out soon and if you are like me you should too.

Rhine and Gabriel may have escaped the beautiful prison of Wither’s mansion, but they are far from escaping danger. First they’re chased for stealing a getaway boat, and then the fleeing pair ends up in the eerie den of Madame, an old woman who collects girls and sells them to the highest bidders. Worst of all, Vaughn, Rhine’s sinister father-in-law, seems to be on her trail every step of the way. Rhine remains determined to get to her brother in Manhattan—but the road they are on is long and perilous.

Now that Rhine has finally regained her freedom, what  lengths will she need to go to in order to keep it?

Faery Tales & Nightmares
By: Melissa Marr 
Release Date: February 21, 2012

Summary: Dangerous promises and beguiling threats swirl together in a dozen stories of enchantments, dark and light, by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Uncanny and unexpected creatures appear from behind bushes, rise from under the seas, or manifest from seasonal storms to pursue the objects of their attention—with amorous or sinister intent—relentlessly.

From the gentle tones of a story-teller’s cadences to the terror of a blood sacrifice, tales of favorite characters from Marr’s Wicked Lovely novels mix with accounts of new characters for readers to fall in love with . . . or to fear.

Lush, seductive, and chilling, Melissa Marr’s stories revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it.
