Waiting on Wednesay

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
Some Quiet Place

hitting shelves July 8th, 2013 from Flux

description: Elizabeth Caldwell has perfected the art of pretending to feel emotion, but it’s always a lie. After a near-fatal car accident when she was a small child, Elizabeth lost the ability to feel any emotion, but along with that loss she gained bizarre abilities: she can see the personified Emotions she cannot feel. Fury, Resentment, Longing—they’ve all given up on her, because she doesn't succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one. Fear. He’s consumed by the mystery of Elizabeth’s past, consumed by her.

And then there are Elizabeth's cryptic, recurring dreams, in which there’s always love, and there’s always death. Haunted by these dreams, Elizabeth paints them, knowing that they somehow hold the key to the mystery of her past.

But a shadowy menace is stalking Elizabeth. Her survival depends on uncovering the truth about herself. And when it matters most, she won’t be able to rely on Fear to save her.

My thoughts: First off, I'm not even going to pretend that I wasn't initially drawn in by this gorgeous cover.  Love it so much.  But then I read the synopsis; personified emotions?? I can't wait to see how that is done.  And haunting dreams of love and death?  I'm sold.  Sounds like something I would love. 


  1. Omg, that books looks phenomenal!!! The cover, the synopsis and everything is so perfect. :D

  2. I have a giveaway for this book on my blog right now, and yes I agree w/you the cover is AMAZING and what first drew me in!!

  7. I admit, the cover was the first time I was drawn to, but I also like the sound from the blurb :) Great pick.


  8. Great pick! This one sounds awesome!

  9. Haha you're blurb sums up my thoughts exactly! Cover lust first, personified emotions to seal the deal!

    My WoW this week is Arclight by Josin L. McQuein!

  10. Whoa this sounds totally fascinating. I'm particularly interested because I remember that a character in Battle Royale couldn't feel any emotions but ultimately it turned them into a monster. Obviously this book is way different than that, but ever since then I've been hoping an author would write a story with a character with the same problem but dealt with it in a different way. Now someone has! This just sounds AMAZING! :)

  11. Ohh, great pick :D Well.. yeah, the cover looks awesome :D Hope you'll love this book when it comes out. <3

  12. Looks like something I would love too!
