Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It showcases each blogger's most anticipated reads. This week, my pick is Undeadly (The Reaper Diaries #1) by Michele Vail.

Summary: "The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died. I brought him back to life. Then things got a little weird...

Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper-and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath.

Within days, she's shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath. Who seems to hate her guts.

Rath will be watching closely to be sure she completes her first assignment-reaping Rick, the boy who should have died. The boy she still wants to be with.

To make matters worse, students at the academy start turning up catatonic, and accusations fly-against Molly. The only way out of this mess? To go through hell. Literally.
"

Why I Can't Wait: I'm a HUGE fan of debut authors, especially ones that write about anything paranormal, so when I stumbled across this, I knew I had to add it to my list. I absolutely love the cover. It's simple, yet dark, and gorgeous! Plus, the summary sounds different than other books I've read. In a way, it kind of sounds like a mix between Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Powers series and Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey. With that kind of combination, you really can't go wrong.

Expected publication: February 28th 2012 by Harlequin Teen
