Waiting on Wednesday (2)

     Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

 Shattered Dreams
 Ellie James
 Release: 12-6-11

Sixteen-year-old Trinity Monsour wants nothing more than to live a normal life. But that isn’t as easy as it seems. Trinity is different. She is special. She sees visions, and for those she’s seen, it’s already too late.Trinity arrives on her aunt’s doorstep in New Orleans with virtually no knowledge of her mysterious heritage. She begins settling into life at a new school and even starts making friends. But all too quickly her dreams accelerate; twisted, terrifying visions of a girl locked in a dark room. And when the head cheerleader, Jessica, goes missing, Trinity knows she has no choice but to step forward with what she’s seen.But people believe that Trinity has information about Jessica’s disappearance not because of a dream, but because she is involved. She is kind-of dating Jessica’s ex-boyfriend, Chase, and Jessica did pull a nasty prank on Trinity. Revenge seems like the likeliest scenario.Nothing prepares Trinity for the dark odyssey that ensues while searching for Jessica, including the surprising romance she finds with Chase, or the shocking truths she learns, not just about the girl who has gone missing, but the past that has been hidden from her.
Why I’m waiting for this one:
First, the cover drew me in.  It’s quite lovely.  I’ve seen two versions of the cover, and I think both are great covers.  I also love books with secrets in them because I always hope for a shocker to be revealed.  Twist endings and shocking surprises are something I always look forward to!

    Wow…It does seem interesting and though I dont usually read books like this I do admit the review sounds enticing. Lets see the book I cant wait to read is actually waiting for me next to my bed. Its called “A Feast for Crows” Its the fourth installment of George R R Martin’s “Game of Thrones” series which inspired the new hit HBO show “Game of Thrones” starring Sean Bean. In “A Feast for Crows”, the story picks up after the death of three of the five self proclaimed kings fighting over the Iron Throne. While some are recouperating from the fierce battles, others are preparing for their next assualt. Meanwhile, the mother of dragons waits across the sea while her young dragons grow. When you play the game of thrones, you either win or die.

  4. This sounds like the ultimate teen drama/paranormal novel!
