Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week:
Release date: January 7th, 2013
by J. Taylor Publshing
There's no way sixteen year old Quincy Amarante will become the fifth grim reaper. None. Not over her shiny blue Mustang. Her Jimmy Choos. Or her dead body.
She’s supposed to enjoy her sophomore year, not learn about some freaky future Destiny says she has no choice but to fulfill.
It doesn’t take long for Quincy to realize the only way out of the game is to play along especially since Death can find her anyway, anywhere, anytime. And does.
Like when she’s reassuring her friends she wants nothing to do with former best friend Ben Moorland, who’s returned from god-knows-where, and fails. Miserably.
Instead of maintaining her coveted popularity status, Quincy’s goes down like the Titanic.
Maybe ... just maybe ... that’s okay.
It seems, perhaps, becoming a grim reaper isn’t just about the dead but more about a much needed shift in Quincy’s priorities—from who she thinks she wants to be to who she really is.
I love grim reaper stories. All the ones I have read I have immensely enjoyed - my favorite is the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones. That one's an adult series, though, but it's seriously awesome and all kinds of hilarious! So anyways, I love the lore and death is just, you know... scary, but also fascinating. Like an accident you can't look away from! Reaper's premise sounds a bit light and fun, but it's tagged under Thriller/Suspense on the pub's website. Either way, I'm really looking forward to this!
