Waiting on Wednesday (39)

Posted by

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:

Level 2

Lenore Appelhans
Release date: January 15th, 2013
by Simon & Schuster

Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow prisoners, Felicia passes the endless hours downloading memories and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and the boy she loved, Neil.

Then a girl in a neighboring chamber disappears, and nobody but Felicia seems to recall she existed in the first place. Something is obviously very wrong. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, she learns the truth: a rebellion is brewing to overthrow the Morati, the guardians of Level 2.

Felicia is reluctant to trust Julian, but then he promises what she wants the most—to be with Neil again—if only she’ll join the rebels. Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself in the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind.

I was all over this cover reveal this week. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it. What is it about? Who cares? 😀

Yes, eventually I got curious and read the synopsis, and yup, I can get with this!

What are you waiting on?

    Is the girl on the cover mad? Sad? Frustrated? Afraid? Kind of hard to know what she’s thinking. Great WoW pick. Sounds interesting.

  2. Aylee

    Haha, I’m pretty sure I had the exact same reaction as you when I saw this cover. It’s just so enigmatic! And the synopsis is too 🙂

  3. Jennifer Messerschmidt

    Interesting take on the Between. I don’t read too many books like this because they are so sad but this one sounds like it has a lot of excitement as well. I wonder if she can escape back to earth and be alive again. I wonder why these guardians keep them here. Lots of interesting thoughts!
    My WOW

    I’d heard about this but never took the time to read the synopsis, but there was a ton of BEA hype about this since she was there talking about it and now that I’ve seen the cover and read it…definitely on board!

    Great pick!

    WOW Giselle!! You always seem to come up with the BEST and most kick-ass sounding WoW picks!! Where do you hear about all of these?? <3 And OMG the cover totally blows my mind!! I would definitely read this just for the cover… but the story behind the book seems fascinating and interesting as well. I LOVE books about the afterlife and people who are already dead but still kinda alive… it's so creepy and awesome at the same time!! XD

    Awesome pick, Giselle sweetie!! <3

  6. Helen Keeble

    Wow, that does sound intriguing. I’m a sucker for books with unusual metaphysics, so as long as there’s some good solid worldbuilding, I’ll definitely be picking this one up!

  7. Emily

    Wow really good pick! I look forward to your WoW posts because you always feature a book I’ve never heard of, and this week you haven’t failed. Adding to TBR! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂

  8. Amy

    This does sound really awesome!! And how fab is that cover?!! I saw someone post this on twitter yesterday I think, and was like “OHHHHH NEEDS IT!!”

  9. Nicola

    I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve bought a book without even reading the synopsis! 🙂 But this looks REALLY awesome. Thanks for sharing. Too bad the release date is sooo far away!

  10. Jenna D.

    YES! YES YES YES YES YES I SOOOOO want to read this, especially after all the cover hooplah. Wishing someone at BEA will be merciful and pick up a copy of this for me. Haha! Great pick for this week! Thanks for sharing!

    My WOW

  11. Katie @ BlookGirl

    Yes ma’am! As soon as I saw the cover last week on Lenore’s blog, I added it to my GoodReads. The premise is promising, and I just can’t wait to get my grubbies on it.

    Oh, to be at BEA this year! ::dreamy sigh::

    Great pick, love 🙂

  12. Fall Into Books

    Haha, I’m like that with covers too. If I see one I like, I want to read the book right away before I even know what it’s about. The book itself sounds interesting, though the cover reminds me of a video game. Either way, I think I have to add this to my wish list. Great pick!

I have to say, I don’t care for the cover too much and that is why I skipped reading about it, but DAMN I’ m so glad i did!!! i swear you are the MAIN reason my TBR pile is surpassing 1000 books!!! Thanks again!

    I’m egearly waiting for this one too! I love the cover and i wonder why it’s called Level 2 rather than Level 1. Well, all the better for a good mystery!

    Great pick! =D
