Waiting on Wednesday (times two!)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

The Alchemy of Forever
By: Avery Williams
Release: January 3rd, 2012
Seraphina’s first love made her immortal…her second might get her killed. 

After spending six hundred years on earth, Seraphina Ames has seen it all. Eternal life provides her with the world’s riches, but at a very high price: innocent lives. Centuries ago, her boyfriend, Cyrus, discovered a method of alchemy that allows them to swap bodies with other humans, jumping from one vessel to the next, taking the human’s life in the process. No longer able to bear the guilt of what she’s done, Sera escapes from Cyrus and vows to never kill again.

Then sixteen-year-old Kailey Morgan gets into a horrific car accident right in front of her, and Sera accidentally takes over her body. For the first time, Sera finds herself enjoying the life of the person she’s inhabiting—and falls for the human boy who lives next door. But Cyrus will stop at nothing until she’s his again, and every moment she stays, she’s putting herself and the people she’s grown to care for in great danger. Will Sera have to give up the one thing that’s eluded her for centuries: true love?
I am so intrigued by the summary, it sounds pretty unique...

Revived
By: Cat Patrick
Release: May 8th, 2012
As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life. 

A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger — and more sinister — than she ever imagined.
Cool cover + interesting summary = must have!!!

  5. I have copies of both of these books and cannot wait to read them... My copy of ALCHEMY doesn't have a cover image though, so it took me a minute to realize I have the same books... I really like though!

  15. Both sound very interesting! The second one kind of reminds me of the cheerleader from Heroes, the television show. I really like the covers of both as well. I added them to my TBR on Goodreads.
