Waiting on Wednesday (41)

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:
Storm (Elemental, #1)Storm by Brigid Kemmerer
Add it: Goodreads
Publisher: Kensington
Format: Paperback, 432 pages
Release Date: April 24, 2012
Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they have more power than you dream.

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn't want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

The storm is coming . . .

Reasons I must have this book:

1) The first chapter that was posted. fjshdfkjhsfkjh so good already.
2) The cover... holy hotness.
3) Brodie's amazing review.
4) Lisa's amazing review.
5) Sarah's amazing review.

    OK, SERIOUSLY. I SOOOO want you to read this! Like, now? Nowish? Ooooh, did you know that there might just be something VERY exciting planned for next week? With lots of Brigid, lots of brothers, and possible a sneak peek at another excerpt from the book? *pokes* DID YOU?

    *is giddy with excitements*

    Also: Sarah likes your reasons, and approves most heartily. Especially points 3, 4, and 6. *nods*


    1. EVILLLLL. I see Brodie has been rubbing off on you! :P

      I want to read it now tooooo! Um, can I just say I am already THRILLED about this whole next week business? I CAN'T WAAAAIT! *runs around screaming and wailing*

      I think this post should now end with a stamp of your approval... that shows high-quality ;)


      Maybe we could get Asher to draw one? :D

  3. I'm excited for this one, too! Synopsis doesn't give much away, does it? Interested to see how it is.

    Laura @ The Traveling Owl

    1. No! But I love that, don't you? :) Going into a book not knowing really what to expect is the best.

  4. Have you seen her prequel, Elemental, for this series. It's amazing and only 99 cents on amazon.

    Can't wait for this one either, great pick! :) My WoW,

    1. AMAZING, you say? I haven't yet read it but I'll need to grab it soon! Thanks for the info! :)

    2. You're welcome, and once you get it you'll be swooning even more than you already are over the covers. :)

  5. Oh, I have the novella of this series waiting for me to read it! I fully understand your excitement, Sonia! ♥ The only thing that is better than one hot is FIVE HOT BOYS to swoon over! ♥♥♥ I can't wait to read this book, hopefully it'll be just as amazing as I heard! Awesome pick, Sonia! :)

  6. LOL OH SONIA! How you entertain me so <3 Fabulous pick, OF COURSE! Who can argue with those reasons? Mwah. Hope you love this, sweetie!

  7. OH MY GOODNESS, Storm is freaking AWESOME, Sonia! You are going to love it, trust me! Four hot brothers? Who can resist that? XP

    Anyway, awesome pick! ♥ Can't wait for you to read this book!

  8. Hahahahahaha YES SONIA!! It's those Aussie girls and their crazy-awesome reviews that make this book one of those I-think-about-it-all-the-time books we can't wait to read! And they thought us Canadians were bad, right? Pffffffffft. x) <3

    And then DOUBLE YES because I've heard about these five hot guys too, and there seriously can't be anything better than that! Except the fact that four of them are brothers and, just because of Michael's short story and the first chapter of Storm, I'm already in love with two of them! (How did that happen?? Hehe <3)

    FANTASTIC pick for your WOW this week, Sonia! We'll be waiting not-so-patiently for this one together for sure!! ;) <3

  9. Yup...I was kinda sold on the whole 5 hot guys bit, too! I mean, is there ANOTHER reason I should be reading?? If so, I don't care for it :b

  10. Agree with all those reasons there (especially number 6 ;]). Can't wait to read this one! Everyone keeps going on about how amazing it is...I must see for myself! :P Fab pick :)

  11. HEEE!!! Brodie happy Sonia excited for book. Brodie willing to fight Sonia when Sonia start drooling for boys. Brodie thinking she need to incapacitate Sonia before release just to be safe. But Brodie too excited for Sonia to read book to do that. BRODIE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT SONIA THINKS!!

    Brodie also love Sonia, but shhhhhhh.
