Waiting On Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Illuminate by Aimee Agresti.

     Haven Terra is a brainy, shy high school outcast. But everything begins to change when she turns sixteen. Along with her best friend Dante and their quiet and brilliant classmate Lance, she is awarded a prestigious internship in the big city— Chicago—and is sent to live and work at a swanky and stylish hotel under the watchful eyes of a group of gorgeous and shockingly young-looking strangers: powerful and alluring hotel owner Aurelia Brown; her second-in-command, the dashing Lucian Grove; and their stunning but aloof staff of glamazons called The Outfit.
     As Haven begins falling for Lucian, she discovers that these beautiful people are not quite what they seem. With the help of a mysterious book, she uncovers a network of secret passageways from the hotel’s jazz-age past that leads her to the heart of the evil agenda of Aurelia and company: they’re in the business of buying souls. Will they succeed in wooing Haven to join them in their recruitment efforts, or will she be able to thwart this devilish set’s plans to take the souls of her classmates on prom night at the hotel?
     Illuminate is an exciting saga of a teen’s first taste of independence, her experience in the lap of luxury, and her discovery she may possess strength greater than she ever knew.

Why I Can't Wait:  I'm not going to lie.  The first thing that attracted me to this book was the humongous poster hanging up at the MWALA conference.  It's an incredible cover.  We all know how I feel about those beautiful covers.  I read a review that says the cover actually relates to the story which I like.  I've read some incredible reviews from some bloggers I trust about this book.  I can't wait for it to come out though I'm unfortunately broke so I might have to wait a little longer.  Books steal all my money. (wink, wink)

Expected publication: March 6th 2012
