Waiting On Wednesday #20

16 Jan 2013

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming        releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Some Quiet Place

 I can’t weep. I can’t fear. I’ve grown talented at pretending. 

 Elizabeth Caldwell doesn’t feel emotions . . . she sees them. Longing, Shame, and Courage materialize around her classmates. Fury and Resentment appear in her dysfunctional home. They’ve all given up on Elizabeth because she doesn’t succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one—Fear. He’s intrigued by her, as desperate to understand the accident that changed Elizabeth’s life as she is herself. 

 Elizabeth and Fear both sense that the key to her past is hidden in the dream paintings she hides in the family barn. But a shadowy menace has begun to stalk her, and try as she might, Elizabeth can barely avoid the brutality of her life long enough to uncover the truth about herself. When it matters most, will she be able to rely on Fear to save her?

If that eerie but stunning cover isn't enough to pique your interest, then the first sentience will certainly have you desperately aching to own a copy of this already! I, for one, immediately added this on GR when I read the blurb- it gives off this mysterious vibe and oh gosh, FEAR! I haven't met him, but I have a feeling I'll be falling for him...after all, his name is AWESOME. 

What are you waiting on this week?
