Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases people are excited for.

I haven't done one of these in months, so I thought I would start posting them again. This week I'm waiting on.....



Title: Hallowed (Unearthly #2)
Author: Cynthia Hand
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: January 17, 2012

Summary:

For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

Described by Richelle Mead as “utterly captivating,” Unearthly received outstanding reviews, garnered accolades from New York Times bestselling authors, and was named an Indie Next Pick. In this heart-wrenching sequel, Cynthia Hand expertly captures the all-consuming joy of first love—and the agony of loss. This beautifully woven tale will appeal to fans of Lauren Kate, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Aprilynne Pike.

Why I want it:

I absolutely loooooved Unearthly, which turned out to be my favorite angel book. And then there was this boy named Tucker that I totally had a crush on in there... Now, I NEED to know what will happen next. Also, that part in the summary where it says someone close to Clara will die? Totally making me nervous! Please don't be Tucker!

At least I only have to wait a little over a month to read it. And, hello there pretty cover.

What are you waiting on?

This series has the prettiest covers! I haven't read Unearthly yet, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. I think I might wait until the entire series comes out to start reading it. Sounds like the anticipation would kill me. :)

You must read Hallowed if you loved Unearthly. :) But Hallowed did broke my heart a bit. And that's not a spoiler, don't worry. ;)

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower, you have a cool site!
