Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to showcase upcoming books. This week I’m simply in agony waiting for. . .
Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger
Pub Date: March 5th 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Summary (from Goodreads): Vane Weston should have died in the category five tornado that killed his parents. Instead, he woke up in a pile of rubble with no memories of his past—except one: a beautiful, dark-haired girl standing in the winds. She's swept through his dreams ever since, and he clings to the hope that she's real.
Audra is real, but she isn't human. She's a sylph, an air elemental who can walk on the wind, translate its alluring songs, even twist it into a weapon. She's also a guardian—Vane’s guardian—and has sworn an oath to protect him at all costs.
When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra has just days to help Vane unlock his memories. And as the storm winds gather, they start to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance growing between them.
Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.
It’s no secret that I adored Messenger’s MG debut, Keeper of the Lost Cites. You can check out my review here. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that her YA debut it at the top of my to-read list. I’ve heard great things about Let the Sky Fall, and I can’t wait to read it! I don’t know what to do to distract myself until March. March, guys, MARCH.
I haven’t been blogging as much recently, but I promise there’s good stuff on the way! Giveaways, anyone? And of course, a multitude of reviews and recommendations. But first, here’s a rundown of what’s going on this month!
1. Camp Nanowrimo!
It’s basically the same thing as Nanowrimo, but in August! And there’s some super cool new features like cabins! It’s basically like a little group of alpha readers and/or cheerleaders. I’m stoked to get some words down this summer.
HOLY CRAP GUYS. I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED! LeakyCon is a Harry Potter convention. Everyone who goes loves it. And there’s a whole Lit Track with some of my favorite authors.
3. Contemporary month!
Since contemps are pretty much the perfect summer books Monica and I are going to be reading some for August! I can’t wait! :)
P.S. I love y’all! Happy Esther Day :)
