Waiting on Wednesday (1)

"Esperando Por", "Waiting on Wednesday"... no fundo sempre foi a mesma coisa. Por isso é que decidi aderir ao "Waiting on Wednesday", o 'meme' oficial, criado pela autora do blogue Breaking the Spine. A única diferença é que em vez de postar à segunda (quando me lembrar) posto à quarta. Mas o "Waiting on Wednesday" continuará a ser, tal como o "Esperando por", uma rubrica onde apresento livros que estou ansiosa por ler.

O livro desta semana deverá ser eventualmente traduzido para português (penso eu), uma vez que é o segundo de uma série que já começou a ser editada pela Saída de Emergência. Como gostei bastante de Celestial - podem ler o quanto a obra me surpreendeu aqui - estou ansiosa por ler a continuação. Espero, no entanto, que a SdE adopte as capas originais que são bem bonitas.

Hallowed (Unearthly, #2) - Cynthia Hand
Editora:  HarperCollins
Data de Publicação: Janeiro de 2012
Páginas: 320
Idioma: Inglês
Descrição (GR): "For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

Described by Richelle Mead as “utterly captivating,” Unearthly received outstanding reviews, garnered accolades from New York Times bestselling authors, and was named an Indie Next Pick. In this heart-wrenching sequel, Cynthia Hand expertly captures the all-consuming joy of first love—and the agony of loss.

Giselle, I loved it! I was pleasantly surprised by the book, I thought it would be your usual YA paranormal romance, but it was great! ^^
