WoW #112 - When

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

Title: When (aka Death Date)
Author: Victoria Laurie

Expected Publication: January 13, 2015


Maddie Fynn is a shy high school junior, cursed with an eerie intuitive ability: she sees a series of unique digits hovering above the foreheads of each person she encounters. Her earliest memories are marked by these numbers, but it takes her father’s premature death for Maddie and her family to realize that these mysterious digits are actually death dates, and just like birthdays, everyone has one.
Forced by her alcoholic mother to use her ability to make extra money, Maddie identifies the quickly approaching death date of one client's young son, but because her ability only allows her to see the when and not the how, she’s unable to offer any more insight. When the boy goes missing on that exact date, law enforcement turns to Maddie.
Soon, Maddie is entangled in a homicide investigation, and more young people disappear and are later found murdered. A suspect for the investigation, a target for the murderer, and attracting the attentions of a mysterious young admirer who may be connected to it all, Maddie's whole existence is about to be turned upside down. Can she right things before it's too late?

Why I am lurking on this: It sounds like a good version of Death Note, and way less creepy. I loved Death Note, so is won't even compare, but I love the concept of death dates! Can't wait! And I like the cover very much, too, as simple as it is!

Teaser Tuesday - The Wilds

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

The Wilds (Reign and Ruin 1)

The train rocked me to blackness and it wasn't until much later that I remembered those warnings.
The Riders are coming...

[Loc. 583-584]

This is totally weird. A world of dreams... We all know that certain strange things happen in dreams, now imagine you have to live and survive in them? I am halfway through and still haven't understood all the workings of the world yet.

All Airel wanted was to be normal...
She seems like an average 17-year-old in the anonymous little city of Boise, Idaho: Airel. But those untroubled days are soon to end, and the change she undergoes will be so radical she will wonder if it wasn't all an illusion to begin with. Pursued ferociously, relentlessly by an ancient enemy in the deepest darkness, now she will have to learn how to fight for her life. And all because of who she is, because of her lineage. Because of this she will never have what she wants most: she will never be normal.


Me, my Shelf, and I


Me, my Shelf, and I is my version of a weekly recap post, and also a feature to tell you more about myself. What exactly I am doing, you can see here.

ME ... gently?

Definition: "in a soft, gradual or calm way"

I'm not exactly a klutz, at least not most of the time. I'm direct, so you could say that gentle is just not my style, at least not with words. I like to be rather excited about things, but I don't panic easily. Having two kittens and one mildly bigger jungle cat (as in, the boyfriend) in the house, however, has at least proven that I have a gentle touch. ^.^

my Shelf

I am head over my heals in review requests. Nothing new on the shelf this week, though. Geez, I never thought it would get this busy. But I'm also doing some German re-reads, because I'm feeling a bit nostalgic.

and I

... had a busy, but also energizing week. I don't know, lots to do, but I didn't feel dragged down by it. I got lots done, and still things in queue waiting for me. Feels like moving forward. =)

Then we were at my dad's birthday party yesterday. It was fun, although we were the only one from the 2nd generation. My dad went all out in preparing awesome food, it was so heavenly! And I hope he's going to like the book I gave him, signed from the fair.

2014 Fur & Fangs Reading Challenge

Something is killing innocent people around Rylie Gresham's town. The police think it's a wild animal, but she has other suspicions. There are new kids at school, and they have a lot in common with her: gold eyes, super strength, and a habit of turning furry. It seems Rylie's not the only werewolf around anymore.
It's up to Rylie and her werewolf-hunting boyfriend, Seth, to stop the killings. But saving lives doesn't come naturally to a monster, and territory battles could risk the life of her sickly aunt--not to mention her own. Rylie has no choice but to stand her ground, protect her home, and stop the murderers before anyone else gets hurt.
