"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 (41)

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 Shannon Messenger
Publication Date: March 2013

Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston is the only survivor of the category five tornado that killed his parents. Every night since the storm, a beautiful, dark-haired girl has swept through his dreams. She's the only clue to his past, and he clings to the hope that she's real. 

Audra is real, but she's also a sylph. An air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even twist it into a weapon. She's also a guardian--Vane's guardian--and has sworn an oath to protect him at all costs. Even if it means sacrificing her own life. 

When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra must help Vane remember who he is. He has a power to claim--the secret language of the West Wind, which only he can understand. But unlocking his heritage will also unlock a memory Audra wishes could be erased. And as the storm bears down on them she starts to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance that's grown between them. 

Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, and alive with wonderful wind-swept prose, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.
I love the mix of the elemental and catastrophic!  Tornados have always fasinated and terrified me, and loud wind in general gives me the shakes; I'll defintely be facing some fears and delighting in some details while reading this book!

  2. yessss, great pick! This book sounds so, so good; and the cover is fantastic. Definitely unique in every aspect. I also had the pleasure of meeting Shannon Messenger and chatting with her for awhile a couple months ago, and after that I just wanted it MORE. I can't believe we have to wait so long for it!

  3. This sounds similar to a short film my friend was in recently. It's called The Wind and I had no idea about slyphs, but that's what she was :)

  4. I always wanted to be a storm chaser when I was younger, and so I immediately grab onto any story about tornadoes and the like. Plus, I LOVE that cover.
