Waiting on Wednesday #15

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait to-read” selection is: Shadows by Paula Weston
ShadowsSummary (via Goodreads):
It’s almost a year since Gaby Winters was in the car crash that killed her twin brother, Jude. Her body has healed in the sunshine of Pandanus Beach, but her grief is raw and constant. It doesn’t help that every night in her dreams she kills demons and other hell-spawn.

And then Rafa comes to town. Not only does he look exactly like the guy who’s been appearing in Gaby’s dreams—he claims a history with her brother that makes no sense. Gaby is forced to accept that what she thought she knew about herself and her life is only a shadow of the truth—and that the truth is more likely to be found in the shadows of her nightmares.

Who is Rafa? Who are the Rephaim? And most importantly, who can she trust?

Why am I waiting on Shadows?
This book only came to my attention when I heard some buzz from a few trusted blogger friends. They couldn’t say enough about how wonderful the story and writing was…so I knew I had to get my hands on it. The cover is gorgeous and unlike a lot of others I actually rather like angel themed books. I know this one will become a fast favorite. I can’t wait to read it.

Shadows will be available in the US/Canada Fall 2013. Already available Australia, New Zealand and UK.

I will be part of the Shadows Blog Tour. My stop will be on September 20th.

    I’ve fallen in love with the cover! I’ve had great and bad experiences both with angels books, so I’ll be giving it a chance for sure! Can’t wait to see what you think of it!

    I saw this book on goodreads. The cover is what drew me in.
    Looks like an amazing read. I didn’t add it to my TBR list at the time but maybe I should since this is the second time I have come across it and the synopsis gives me the chills 🙂

    Can’t wait to read what you’re currently read too. Would love to see what you thought of that book. I have seen it a lot and I love Fairytale retellings

    Have a great day
    Thanks for stopping by my blog
    My Wow

      Some of my most trusted blogger friends loved Shadows so that really encouraged me to give it a go. I can’t believe I’d not heard of it prior. I will be reading it this month–so EXCITED.

      So far I’m loving Of Beast and Beauty

    I really can’t wait to see what you think of this! I imagine with it releasing in the US finally, it’ll get a bit more of the attention that it deserves. I loved the sequel too and have been waiting not-so-patiently for the third book. 😉 really looking forward to your review! Great pick this week, Kristen. 🙂

    I’ve heard tons of great things about this too! Plus, it’s Aussie so it kinda has to be good, right? Isn’t that the rule? lol Hope you enjoy it!

    I’m part of the Shadows blog tour as well, and about to start reading the book. I’m kind of nervous though, to be honest. I’ve heard good things, so I’m hoping for good things.

    Dude, you have to read this book. It’s phenomenal. I only learned of it through some trusted blogger friends, too, and they were sooo right. I got it from Netgalley, but you can also get copies from Fishpond. You can even get the SEQUEL from Fishpond. 🙂
