Waiting On Wednesday (time two!)

WOW is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine

Book: Luminous
Author: Dawn Metcalf
Release: July 7th, 2011
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.
Um, does "awesome" explain this one? I love the sound of it, so very unique. 

Book: Abandon
Author: Meg Cabot
Release: April 26th, 2011
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. 

YAY! A new book by MC! I adore Meg Cabot's books, so I know this one will rock. =)

What are you waiting on?



  1. I noticed Luminous was someone else's WOW pick as well-- and it does look great! I'm not a big Meg Cabot fan, because I think a lot of her heroines are much the same, but this new one does sound very different from her other books. Great picks!
