"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Waiting on Wednesday (47)


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we seriously can’t wait for.

 Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:


by Scott Speer
Publication Date: April 2013
-------------------------------------------------
Maddy explores her Angel heritage—and struggles to get her wings—as the Angels and the humans head for a showdown. 
Life turned upside down for Maddy Montgomery when she found out she was half-Angel and was catapulted into the scene of flashbulbs, paparazzi, and fervent adulation that comes with being in the celebrity Angel world. 
And now Maddy must face the most difficult choice of her life. She’s been offered the chance to become a Guardian. This means dangerous and high-stakes training, with no guarantee that she can succeed. But more than that, it would mean leaving her mortal life behind—forever— and allying with the Angels at a time when their relationship with humans is heading for war...
------------------------------------------------
Ugh, I LOVED Immortal City by Scott Speers which is the first book in this series, that I can't WAIT to find out what happens to Maddy and Jacks!  Seriously great action book; the world Speers introduces the reader to is fun and so much like our own sometimes you have to wonder.  The mythos behind the Angels (at least what you get to see) is so intriguing.  I'm sure with Natural Born Angel we'll find out even more about the life and existence of the Angels.  I'm so excited, and you all should check these books out as well!

  13. This sounds interesting enough. I haven't read all that many Angel books, I tend to read more about demons and vampires and... well evil creatures, so it's going to be something new for me. I hope I get a chance to read it once it comes out. Nice pick.
    Check out my WOW.
