Waiting on Wednesday #6

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by, Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on!

Title: Arise (Hereafter #2)
Author: Tara Hudson
Release Date: June 5th, 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books

Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.

It feels like such a long time ago since I read Hereafter, though it was only earlier this summer!  I loved it though, and I can't wait to find out what happens with Amelia in this book.  Just look at that cover.  I bet it's going to be a beauty in person as well.

Thanks for stopping by.  Care to share what you're waiting for this week?
