Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The purpose of the event is to spotlight the upcoming releases that readers are most looking forward to.

This week, I've chosen...

Hereafter by Tara Hudson

Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: June 7, 2011
Can there truly be love after death?
 
Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.
 
Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.
I haven't read a lot of ghost stories, at all. It's not because I don't like them - the opportunity has just never presented itself. Hereafter looks like a really interesting story and I've already read many positive reviews. Plus, that cover is just gorgeous. I love the combination of blue and yellow and how they made Amelia's body look.

What are you waiting on this very sunny Wednesday?

  6. Jessi: Ah, those Harper excerpts always end up driving me crazy. I can't read that much and then just stop!

    Lea: Ooh, I'm glad you liked it!

    Ashley: Yeah, I should try that as well :) I've yet to have any luck with HC on Net Galley but there's no harm in trying, I guess.

  10. I've got a digital ARC of this provided by publishers through Netgalley and I'm definitely planning to start reading either sometime over the weekend or next week, and I can hardly wait to start it. The cover is gorgeous and I've been dying to read for a long time, now.
