Waiting On Wednesday (#2)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it's a weekly meme all about the books that are coming out soon that we really can't wait to read.



This is my WoW this week, and it includes three books, all of which will be published on 22nd February 2011!


Darkness Becomes Her
By: Kelly Keaton
Published: 22nd February 2011


Synopsis From Boarders:
With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can't be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is. Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long-dead mother: Run.Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.
Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.
 This is the one I'm wanting the most: it looks so me it's untrue.  Plus, I've been seeing reviews around saying it's amazing, and from the blurb I completely agree!  And I love the line on the cover: "Beneath every beauty, evil stirs"... so dramatic, and the picture's brilliant too!


A Touch Mortal
By: Leah Clifford
Published: 22nd February 2011!


Synopsis From Boarders:
Clifford presents a riveting, dark, debut teen novel about life, death, and what lies in between. Caught in a war between Heaven and Hell, in love with a conflicted angel, Eden is being stalked by the Fallen for powers she shouldn't have.
Eden didn't expect Az.
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.
Yeah.
So long, happily-ever-after.
Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.
She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own.
And that's only the beginning of the end.
 This looks incredible.  A new twist on the angel genre, it looks like one of those books that won't let you put it down.  Plus, I'm really loving the cover: simple yet stunning.

Exposed
By: Kimberly Marcus
Published: 22nd February 2011

Synopsis From Boarders:
"In the dim light of the darkroom, I'm alone, but not for long.
As white turns to gray, Kate is with me.
The background of the dance studio blurred, so the focus is all on her
legs extended in a perfect soaring split.
The straight line to my squiggle,
my forever-best friend.”

Sixteen-year-old Liz is Photogirl—sharp, focused and confident in what she sees through her camera lens. Confident that she and Kate will be best friends forever.
But everything changes in one blurry night. Suddenly, Kate is avoiding her, and people are looking the other way when she passes in the halls. As the aftershocks from a startling accusation rip through Liz's world, everything she thought she knew about photography, family, friendship and herself shifts out of focus. What happens when the picture you see no longer makes sense? What do you do when you may lose everything you love most? Told in stunning, searingly raw free verse,  Exposed is Kimberly Marcus's gut-wrenching, riveting debut and will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins, Laurie Halse Anderson and Virginia Euwer Wolff.
This looks just incredible.  Emotionally intense, different and it looks like an amazing debut.  Even the cover looks dramatic and emotional, somehow.  Just amazing!
