"Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose of this weekly event is to spotlight a soon-to-be-released book that you are very much anticipating. "Waiting On" Wednesday will also give bloggers an opportunity to share ideas for our TBR lists.


Title: Mercy (Mercy, #1)
Author: Rebecca Lim
Publisher: Hyperion Book CH, 288 Pages (May 17th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: A fallen angel haunted by her past. Yearning for her immortal beloved. Forever searching for answers. Who will show her Mercy?

Mercy has lost herself. She can’t count how many times she’s “woken up” in a new body, and assumed a new life, only to move on again and again. During the day she survives in the human world on instinct and at night her dreams are haunted by him. Mercy’s heart would know him anywhere. But her memory refuses to cooperate.

But this time is different. When Mercy wakes up she meets Ryan, an eighteen year old reeling from the loss of his twin sister who was kidnapped two years ago. Everyone else has given up hope, but Ryan believes his sister is still alive. Using a power she doesn’t fully comprehend, Mercy realizes that Ryan is right. His sister is alive and together they can find her. For the first time since she can remember, Mercy has a purpose; she can help. So she doesn’t understand why the man in her dreams cautions her not to interfere. But as Ryan and Mercy come closer to solving the dark mystery of his sister’s disappearance, danger looms just one step behind.

Will Mercy be able to harness her true self and extraordinary power in time?


Title: Hereafter (Hereafter, #1)
Author: Tara Hudson
Publisher: HarperCollins, 400 Pages (June 7th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: Can there truly be love after death?

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.


Title: Die For Me (Revenants, #1)
Author: Amy Plum
Publisher: HarperTeen, 352 Pages (May 10th 2011)
Preorder here: Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: DIE FOR ME is the first of three books about Kate, a sixteen-year-old American who moves to Paris after the death of her parents. She finds herself falling for Vincent, who she discovers is not the typical French teenager he appears: he is something else entirely.

ETA: I am aware that this cover changed. Thanks to those who mentioned this in comments. :) This post was scheduled ahead of my surgery, so I haven't had a chance to change it. I figured I'd add a quick pic showing the new cover here! Check out the new cover for Die For Me - What do you guys think of the cover change for this title??

Three more MUST read books for 2011! They not only sound amazing, but take a look at those covers... WOW!

  2. Hereafter sounds like it will be ghostly good and I'm really looking forward to the release of Die For Me. They recently changed the US cover to one that closely resembles the UK one, so the cover you're using now isn't right anymore. But both the old and new one are gorgeous! ^.~ Just thought I should let you know.

    Here's my WoW
