Waiting on Wednesday!


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My WoW "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Luminous by Dawn Metcalf

 


Release date:  July 7th 2011 by Dutton Childrens Books


Goodreads Description:

"When sixteen-year-old Consuela discovers she can remove her skin, revealing a lustrous mother-of-pearl skeleton, she slips into a parallel world known as the Flow, a place inhabited by archetypal teens with extraordinary abilities. Crafting skins out of anything – air, water, feathers, fire – she is compelled to save ordinary people from dying before their time. Yet now someone is murdering them, one by one, and Consuela finds herself the focus of an intricate plot to end the Flow forever when all she really wants is to get back home, alive."

What is your WoW?

Boy. The premise of some of these YA paranormals are kind of out there! Seems like people are digging hard to be different...and this certainly is. Fresh pick! Thanks. Lovely cover.

Oh oh! I was going to this one this week too! This one sounds so interesting with the whole taking the skin off thing. And gross ;)

Hurry up July! Skip winter!

I saw the cover a few days ago and I spazzed so much, its gorgeous! I've read another book before about "removing skin" but Luminous sounds way more interesting than the one I've read. Great WoW pick!
