Waiting On Wednesday #17: Dreaming Awake, by Gwen Hayes

This is a weekly book meme, hosted by
which features future releases that we 
book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!

Here's my pick for this week!!

Trade Paperback, 336 pages
NAL Trade
Expected Publication Date:

Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy,YA

From the Goodreads Synopsis

She fell for him in a nighttime world. But the time for dreaming is past—and the here-and-now can be just as fragile their love…

When Theia Alderson first encountered a mysterious, handsome boy in her dreams, she never imagined how finding Haden Black—and falling in love—could change her life. To save Haden, Theia sacrificed everything. And the dangerous bargain she made could have lasting repercussions.

Now Theia has returned to Serendipity Falls, and she finds herself struggling with the same deadly hungers that have tortured Haden. When students at their high school fall prey to a mysterious illness, Theia can’t help but wonder if Haden’s control is slipping—and how much longer she’ll have a grip on her own....

I have the first novel in this series, Falling Under,
which is, of course, in my TBR pile!!
So here's yet another sequel I'm groaning for,
without having even read the previous book! 
That's my "book addict nature" kicking in....
The more terrific books I have,
the more I want!!!
Greedy little bookworm, aren't I?
Can't help myself....
I was born with the readin' and collectin' genes!!

And by the way, don't you just love that cover?
(I covet that hair and dress!!!)

What extra-special sequels
(and non-sequels)
are you all breathlessly craving
this Wednesday?


  1. So... I haven't read Falling Under, hadn't even heard about it, but now I must! This cover is just gorgeous, and besides, the blurb makes it sound perfect. Reminds me a little (in the good way, not on the ohhh copy cat kind of way) of Nevermore, which is right up there with my all times favorites in YA!

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi, Ron!

    Yes, this cover is absolutely gorgeous!! I really have to get to FALLING UNDER...but, as you know, "so many books, so little time"...

    I don't think I've heard of NEVERMORE, so thanks for mentioning it! I'll look it up on Goodreads.

    You're welcome for the sharing, and thank YOU for the commnent!! : )

  3. I've been meaning to get to "Falling Under." I swear, these sequels come out quicker than I can keep up with them. ;)

  4. I think I have Falling Under somewhere around here...hmm I need to hunt it down. The covers to this series are so beautiful :D
