Waiting on Wednesday 6/15

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Frost
Author: Wendy Delsol
Publisher: Candlewick
Published: October 11, 2011
Genre: YA, Paranormal
Pages: 384

After the drama of discovering that she’s a member of the Storks, a mystical order of women endowed with powerful abilities, Katla Leblanc is finally settling into her life in chilly Minnesota. In fact, the ex-California girl even hopes for a white Christmas.

But Katla’s wintry wish unexpectedly turns into the snowstorm of the century, drawing the attention of Brigid, a gorgeous environmental researcher with an amazing array of fur coats and an unusual interest in Katla’s boyfriend, Jack.
Once upon a time, I read and reviewed the first book in an entirely original series and was completely blown away. That book was Stork, and when I discovered that the sequel, Frost, was coming out this fall, I almost died with excitement. Now, I was lucky enough to meet the amazing Wendy Delsol at BEA this year and score an ARC of this one, but I'm holding off reading it a little until the review date. I can't wait to see how Katla is growing in her role as a Stork, and I'm intrigued by this new girl that might just be more than meets the eye. I'm sensing tension, and I'm loving it! Plus, this darker cover for book two is just stunning. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  13. Once again you have managed to find an amazing cover :)
    I'm wondering if you ever worry when you read the second in the series after loving the first one so much, that you are bound to be disappointed? Here's hoping that you're not with this one :)

  25. I never read Stork. The cover looked weird and just reminded me too much of that "singer" that wore the funky outfit that looked like a Stork. I may have to rethink this.
