Waiting on Wednesday (139)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My picks for this week are...

Reaping Me Softly by Kate Evangelista


Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clark, is a Reaper.

At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?
Why I want to read this one...

1) LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover! It's stunning and I just love the colors used!
2) The premise sounds great! I haven't read too many books about reapers before.
3) I adored Kate's first book Taste. It had great writing and a killer premise so I'm hoping this one will be the same!

Reaping Me Softly will be released October 2012.


Fireblood (Fireblood #1) by Trisha Wolfe

To save a kingdom, Zara must choose between a prince who could be the answer and a rising rebellion that threatens to take control.

When Zara Dane is chosen to marry Prince Sebastian Hart, son of the man who ordered her father’s capture, Zara knows she must fight to save everything she loves from ruin.

Being betrothed to the prince means a life trapped behind the towering stone walls of the Camelot-forged realm. Under the watchful eye of the prince's first knight, Sir Devlan Capra, changing her future becomes difficult.

When an unlikely rebel reveals the truth about the deadly secrets that fuel King Hart’s twisted world, Zara’s path to rescue her father becomes clouded by deception. The Rebels clear her path by forcing Zara’s hand with an ultimatum: sway Prince Sebastian to join the Rebels, convincing him of his father’s evil nature, or they will take him out.
Reasons why I want to read this one...

1) I've heard some amazing things about it!
2) It involves kingdoms and princes...what's not to love about that!

However, I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of the cover. :(

Fireblood will be released October 2013.

  2. Thank you!!! I was so excited about Fire Blood when I saw it a few weeks back, but its not on Amazon so I couldn't add it to my wishlist and then I forgot the name/author and couldn't find it again!

    I'm so excited for this one - anything with Kingdoms, historical settings and attractive princes and I'm there lol!

    Here’s my WoW post.

  3. Reaping Me Softly looks great, strangely it doesn't seem to be on Amazon?

    1. I think that has to do with the fact that it's published by a small publisher. Usually with smaller ones, they don't put the books up until the actual release date or right before.

  7. I love the cover for Reaping Me Softly-it's a little offbeat but still very attractive.
