“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine ,that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Allison O’Malley just graduated from college. Her life’s plan is to get a job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She doesn’t have room for friends or even Ethan, who clearly wants more.
When Allison’s long-lost father shows up, he claims he can bring her mother back from the dark place her mind has sent her. He reveals legends of a race of people long forgotten, the Tuatha de Danaan, along with the truth about why he abandoned her mother.

I have really been wanting to get into ready New Adult books. I feel like I would connect with them more. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE YA books, and will continue to read them. But I am not a teen anymore, and I would love to follow characters my own age.. and maybe not feel like a cradle robber when I swoon over 17 yr old guys >.< But I have been waiting.. waiting to find one that was NOT contemporary! and Finally…. there may be hope! I can’t wait to see what Laura Howard has to offer with her writing 🙂 But if it’s anything like that gorgeous cover? I can’t wait!
Have you read any YA sci-fi or fantasy books that I should be aware of?! Share in the comments!
