Waiting on Wednesday -

Arise (Hereafter #2) by Tara Hudson
July 5th, 2012 from HarperTeen

Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.

I really enjoyed Hereafter this year and I'll definitely stay tuned for book two. It doesn't hurt that the author is from my home state, Oklahoma. ;) I'm eager to find out more about Amelia and Joshua. What is up with these headless covers lately? Anyone else notice the trend? Regardless, I'm in!

  1. Please, oh, please don't let Headless Girl in a Pretty Dress trend be the new Sad Girl in a Pretty Dress trend. I prefer covers not to have humans on them, but I understand that teens like those covers.
