Posted 14 March, 2012 by Danny in Blog, Danny, Meme / 46 Comments

Welcome to my favorite Feature:

“Waiting on” Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill at Breaking the Spine.







I guess I’m waiting for this book ever since I saw this cover last year… it is so damn beautiful, I have no words!


Expected publication: April 1st 2012 by Arthur A. Levine Books
*dreamy sigh* 
A gorgeous urban fantasy about dangers outside and in.Matthew has always lived in Safe, a community hidden far beneath the pipes and tunnels of the city Above. The residents fled to Safe years before to escape the Whitecoats and their cruel experiments, and now Matthew is responsible for both the keeping of Safe’s stories and for Ariel—a golden-haired shapeshifter, and the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen.

But one horrifying night, an old enemy murders Safe’s founder, Atticus, and the community is taken over by an army of shadows. Only Matthew, Ariel, and a handful of friends escape Above. Now they not only have to survive in a sunlit world they barely know, but they must unravel the mystery of the shadows’ fury and Atticus’s death. It’s up to Matthew to find a way to remake Safe—not just for himself and his family, but for Ariel, who’s again faced with the life she fled, and who needs him more than ever before.

An urban fantasy and a love story, Above is the breathtaking debut of an extraordinary new voice.

Do I need to tell you more? I guess not because the cover and the synopsis are speaking for themselves! She has beautiful and gorgeous wings – do you see????

Oh and it’s a love story !… I cannot resist a love story, with .. wings! Oh and if I’m not mistaken the book is told from a Boy’s POV?


I’m sold!

And now, please let’s share your Waiting on Wednesday and dying to see what you are waiting for!

Much Love,

Obsessive Reader by Night – Scientist at Day!

    I totally agree with you!

    This one looks AWESOME!

    And I love it when it’s from a guy’s POV

  2. I feel horrible to ask but I only follow you via Feed (and had to mark all the new posts as read because of me being too sick to read all of ’em) and am a rather silent reader which is why I only now have noticed the new theme. It is new, right? I mean, it looks so different and all shiny and PERFECT! Aaah, just saw that it’s made by Tawni. She’s so gifted!

    Okay, erm, so off-topic. LOL

    I have had Above on my not-yet-released shelf forever and am so curious about it!! Great pick! <3

    I’ve had this book on my TBR awhile now. The cover is what sucked me in, had to do a double take when I saw the wings on the female.

    My WoW@BloodSweatandBooks

  5. Oh Danny, that cover is spectacular. I just glanced at it on GR and didn’t see the wings they are so elegant. This book sounds gritty too. I love male POV we don’t get enough lf those. I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the great WOW!

  6. This cover is really awesome I love it too. I got this last week and sadly I couldn’t get into it it’s very strange but it’s something that you’ll either love or just.. not.. I’m curious to see what you think!!

  7. I got this in the mail for review about a week ago and can’t wait to start it!!! I think it released a month earlier in Canada. Love the cover, nice pick! 🙂

    My WOW

  8. Thank you for making the cover so large. I have never seen that the girl on the front had WINGS! That makes me interested in this one a whole lot more. She has WINGS!
    What is going on in this world??? Now I want to know. But, I’ll probably have to wait for your review to find out. Still, my curiosity is definitely piqued! (Hope I used the right word there.)

    Love the look Danny!

    • Oh but the wings are the best and what me intrigued the most. But you’re right the work sounds amazing and I’m so curious to dig into this world!

  9. I finally manged to check out all the comments on my last WoW. I had a busy week/month.

    I love the cover of this book. And I love that it’s written from a male POV. That’s so rare and therefore precious. I tried requesting an ARC but unfortunately they couldn’t send over the ocean.
    Great pick!
