Waiting on Wednesday 5-29-13

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.


This week I have a two. The first is Of Breakable Things by A Lynden Rolland. The second is Rain of the Ghosts by Greg Weisman. Both involve ghosts!

Alex Ash always stands out in a crowd. Blame it on her quick tongue or her attraction to trouble, but Alex is willing to bet most people know her name because of her illness. Living with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is like living on death row, yet even as a prisoner in her own body, Alex is willing to fight for her diseased life as long it includes her best friend Chase and his rambunctious brothers. But when Chase’s entire family is tragically killed, suddenly her disease is a blessing in disguise. When death finally comes knocking, she is packed and ready to go- only to discover her life has just begun.

Eidolon is a secluded reservation which has existed for centuries as a safeguard and governing capital city for those spirits who are strong enough to linger once the body is gone. In a peculiar world where rooms can absorb emotions and secrets are buried six feet under, Alex finds herself to be the talk of the afterlife due to her infamous prophet of a mother who disappeared years ago. Suddenly standing out isn’t so great especially since the spirits who hunted her mother seem to have their sights set on Alex. Yet even amongst envious peers, daunting magic, and soulless banshees, the most difficult aspect of Alex’s afterlife is juggling between Chase and his reckless brother, neither of whom are willing to give up the girl they both love.

So much for resting in peace.


Okay dude, this cover is super creepy and I love it. Also, it sounds super awesome. Ghosts, magic, banshees and a romance. Despite the love triangle sound of it, I am all about this!!

First in a series about of an adventurous young girl, Rain Cacique, who discovers she has a mystery to solve, a mission to complete and, oh, yes, the ability to see ghosts.


Welcome to the Prospero Keys (or as the locals call them: the Ghost Keys), a beautiful chain of tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. Rain Cacique is water-skiing with her two best friends Charlie and Miranda when Rain sees her father waiting for her at the dock. Sebastian Bohique, her maternal grandfather, has passed away. He was the only person who ever made Rain feel special. The only one who believed she could do something important with her life. The only thing she has left to remember him by is the armband he used to wear: two gold snakes intertwined, clasping each other’s tails in their mouths. Only the armband . . . and the gift it brings: Rain can see dead people. Starting with the Dark Man: a ghost determined to reveal the Ghost Keys’ hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure.

This isn't a typical read for me, but it sounds really good. I am definitely intrigued by this. And the setting sounds fantastic, so that in itself will be awesome to read if the descriptions are vivid! 

So those are my picks this week! What are you waiting for? Is anyone even reading this or are you all at BEA? Lol! Anyways, I hope all of you awesome bloggers that are at BEA are able to get some of your WoW picks!!
