Waiting on Wednesday (79)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.


The Revenant by Sonia Gensler - To be released June 14th, 2011

When Willie arrives in Indian Territory, she knows only one thing: no one can find out who she really is. To escape a home she doesn't belong in anymore, she assumes the name of a former classmate and accepts a teaching job at the Cherokee Female Seminary.

Nothing prepares her for what she finds there. Her pupils are the daughters of the Cherokee elite—educated and more wealthy than she, and the school is cloaked in mystery. A student drowned in the river last year, and the girls whisper that she was killed by a jealous lover. Willie's room is the very room the dead girl slept in. The students say her spirit haunts it.

Willie doesn't believe in ghosts, but when strange things start happening at the school, she isn't sure anymore. She's also not sure what to make of a boy from the nearby boys' school who has taken an interest in her—his past is cloaked in secrets. Soon, even she has to admit that the revenant may be trying to tell her something...

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want to read this: Ghosts! I love the character's name, too. And you know how I feel about ghost stories.


Luminous by Dawn Metcalf - To be released July 7th, 2011

As reality slips and time stands still, Consuela finds herself thrust into the world of the Flow. Removed from all she loves into this shifting world overlapping our own, Consuela quickly discovers she has the power to step out of her earthly skin and cloak herself in new ones-skins made from the world around her, crafted from water, fire, air. She is joined by other teens with extraordinary abilities, bound together to safeguard a world they can affect, but where they no longer belong.

When murder threatens to undo the Flow, the Watcher charges Consuela and elusive, attractive V to stop the killer. But the psychopath who threatens her new world may also hold the only key to Consuela's way home.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: Gorgeous cover. Awesome author. Totally different sound from anything I've read in a long while. How could I not want to read it? (Also... I like saying Consuela. Tis a fun name to say.)

What are you guys waiting on this week?
