Waiting On Wednesday #23: Embrace, by Jessica Shirvington

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!!

Hardcover, 400 pages
Sourcebooks Fire
March 6, 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend?

After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner.

Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body ... and her feelings for Lincoln.

Oh, my gosh!!

  2. Oh I definitely agree! This is already released in New Zealand but the cover here pales in comparison to the US cover! So I'm definitely getting the US one when it's released! Great pick :)

  11. This book sounds very interesting and the cover is just gorgeous! I might just wait on it too! ^__^

  12. What a teaser on the cover! "One day I will tell you everything". That is enough to make me want to read the book. I love your picture at the top of your blog. It really says Christmas. I am a new follower.

    Thank you so much for your comment!! : )

  17. Hi, JC!

    Yes, that teaser is another appealing element to the dover, isn't it? Makes you want to go out and head for the publisher's office to demand the book! Lol.

    Thanks for complimenting my blog header. I found this picture on the Internet, and LOVED it immediately! It's not only perfect as a Christmas picture, but is also perfect for my blog, because of the color scheme. I tried pictures with red and green in them, but they just didn't go with the blog's overwhelmingly blue tones. I do have red and green Christmas graphic art in my sidebar, though.

    Thanks so much for both the comment and the follow! : )


THIS IS NOW AN AWARD-FREE, AND TAG-FREE BLOG. Thanks for the compliment, though! : )

Thanks for your thoughts on my posts! I always reply here, as well as comment back on your blog. Have a WONDERFUL day!! :)
