Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It features pre-publication books that we can't wait to be released! This week's marvelous pick is:
Above by Leah Bobet
Summary from Goodreads: An extraordinary debut urban fantasy about dangers outside and in.
Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above--like Whisper, who speaks to ghosts, and Jack Flash, who can shoot lightning from his fingers.
But one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home--not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before.
ABOVE is the debut of an amazing new voice.
I love books with amazing covers, books that may or may not be about bees and books that are about girls (and maybe guys) named Ariel. So it's basically guaranteed that I'll love Above more than humanly possible. It's also guaranteed that there will be a WoW post about it too. And it's also guaranteed that I'll be telling people to put it on their to-read list (hint hint...)
So on April 1st, not only am I going to be playing tricks, but I will also be buying a certain book...
Why can't April 1st hurry up and come? How can I wait until then? Just wondering...
