Waiting on Wednesday - 9/23

Okay "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week my WoW book is "Gone" by Lisa McMann. This is the third (and final) book in McMann's "Wake" series. This has been a great series and I am really eager to read the conclusion!

"Fade" (Wake series, Book 3) by Lisa McMann
Pages: 224
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: February 9, 2010

From "The third and final book in the paranormal teen series that includes The New York Times bestseller Wake and Fade.

Janie thought she knew what her future held. And she thought she'd made her peace with it. But she can't handle dragging Cabel down with her. She knows he will stay with her, despite what she sees in his dreams. He's amazing. And she's a train wreck. Janie sees only one way to give him the life he deserves -- she has to disappear. And it's going to kill them both. Then a stranger enters her life -- and everything unravels.

The future Janie once faced now has an ominous twist, and her choices are more dire than she'd ever thought possible. She alone must decide between the lesser of two evils. And time is running out...

He reaches toward her, his fingers black and bloody, his eyes deranged, unblinking. Janie is paralyzed. his cold hands reach around her neck, squeezing tight, tighter, until Janie has no breath left. She's unable to move, unable to think. As his grasp tightens further around Janie's neck, his face turns sickly alabaster. He strains harder and begins to shake. Janie is dying. She has no fight left in her. It's over."


  1. That cover is fantastic. It looks spooky. I admit I couldn't read your synopsis because I never read a synopsis in a series book until I read the books in order, fearing for a spoiler - LOL! I will have to check out that series as I have not heard of it before!

  2. It's been a great series. The first book is "Wake". It's a bit spooky. but mostly just a very creative premise for a series. The books are super short and quick reads. The covers for the whole series have been similar to this one, and fantastic :-)

  3. I will have to add for my fall reading. Thanks for the heads up on the series. Have a good one.

  4. I've read Wake which I really enjoyed, now I need to read Fade so I am ready when this one comes out.

  5. Excellent choice!!

    I loved Wake =) I haven't read Fade yet but I will be very soon.

    I really love the cover of Gone...must be the green color (my favie)

  6. me too! this is definitely one i'm waiting for too!

  7. These books sound so good! Wake is staring at me from my shelves asking to be read so thanks for giving it a little push into my hands!! =)

  8. I still need to read the second book in this series. I enjoyed the first one, but haven't gotten around to reading the next one. Great pick though!

  9. I thought the second book was even better than the first one!
