Waiting on Wednesday:

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
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.

Oh my gosh, I love, love, loved Unearthly (read my review here) and the wait for Hallowed to come out seems so long!  

TEAM TUCKER FOREVER!

Have you read Unearthly yet? If not, what are you waiting for? It was probably one of my favourite angel books ever! :)

WHAT BOOK ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

  2. I've been (unconsciously) avoiding angel books. But I think I'm going to have to give them a shot now. Maybe I'll start with Unearthly. Haha, great WoW. It was the nudge I needed to start reading some different books.

    If you like, stop by and check out my WoW.
