Waiting On Wednesday: Week 78

Waiting On Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

My pick this week is:

Falling Under by Gwen Hayes

In her dreams he’s irresistible—seductive, charming, and undoubtedly dangerous. But when he appears to her when she’s awake—and captivates her just the same—she’s not sure which way is up and which is down.

Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life, not allowed the same freedoms as the rest of the teenagers in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, she feels every urge she’s ever denied burning through her at the slightest glance from Haden Black. Theia knows she’s seen Haden before—not around town, but in her dreams.

Theia doesn’t understand how she dreamed of Haden before they ever met, but every night has them joined in a haunting world of eerie fantasy. And as the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her forward one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear. And as she slowly discovers what Haden truly is, Theia’s not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul. (from Author's website)
 
The cover of this is truly the definiton of a gem of a cover, in my opinion. Since it just screams "BUY ME! BUY ME!" before even reading the summary. Making this even better, the summary makes Falling Under seem like it'll be a gem of a book also. Overall I can't wait to read this one, so March of 2011, you better come fast. ;)
 
Also I wanted to make a little shot out WOW mention to Sarah Dessen's new upcoming novel Cut and Run, which would've been my Wow pick, because as frequent readers of this blog know I'm a huge Dessen fan, but it didn't have a cover nor official summery, so I went to the second best pick, Falling Under!
 
Though here's the snippet about it from PW, in cause you have no clue what I'm talking about.
 
Hayes Buys ‘Cut and Run’

Agent Leigh Feldman, of Darhansoff, Verrill, Feldman, sold a new YA novel by Sarah Dessen to Viking Children’s Books. Regina Hayes bought world rights to Cut and Run, about a high school senior who, after her parents’ divorce, has taken up the practice of assuming a new identity in each of the four towns she’s lived in. Dessen, according to Penguin, has sold more than four million copies of her nine previous titles, which include the New York Times bestsellers Along for the Ride and Lock & Key. Cut and Run is scheduled for May 2011.

Are you excited yet?!?!? Well, join the club. :)
