Waiting On Wednesday: Reaping Me Softly by Kate Evangelista

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

This week’s selection is:

Book: Reaping Me Softly

Author: Kate Evangelista

Release Date: October 30th 2012

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clark, is a Reaper.

At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?

Why I’m waiting:

Do I even have to mention how much I actually love the cover? I mean, look at it! It’s beautiful! I don’t know why but I just love it. And the description is promising as well, which means I can’t wait for this book.

I have read Kate’s other work: Taste [See my review] and I truly enjoyed it, so I’m confident this will be just as good. I guess I’ll just have to wait all month long to read it. And make no mistake, I intend to read it as soon as I get my hands on it! 😉

So, what are you waiting on?  Leave a comment with your WoW link below and I’ll make sure to check it out!
