WOW #46




I'm waiting on

 Reaper

Reaper by L.S. Murphy
Expected Release Date January 7th 2013


There's no way sixteen year old Quincy Amarante will become the fifth grim reaper. None. Not over her shiny blue Mustang. Her Jimmy Choos. Or her dead body.

She’s supposed to enjoy her sophomore year, not learn about some freaky future Destiny says she has no choice but to fulfill.

It doesn’t take long for Quincy to realize the only way out of the game is to play along especially since Death can find her anyway, anywhere, anytime. And does.

Like when she’s reassuring her friends she wants nothing to do with former best friend Ben Moorland, who’s returned from god-knows-where, and fails. Miserably.

Instead of maintaining her coveted popularity status, Quincy’s goes down like the Titanic.

Maybe ... just maybe ... that’s okay.

It seems, perhaps, becoming a grim reaper isn’t just about the dead but more about a much needed shift in Quincy’s priorities—from who she thinks she wants to be to who she really is.

Why I'm Waiting?
I've had my eye on this one for a long time. Still have to wait until January! I love reapers. I'll read anything about them. I think they might be my favorite paranormal creature. Their job is guaranteed to entertain. Excited to see how Quincy handles it.

  59. I started this the other day but it wasn't really appealing to me so I put it aside for a while. Hopefully you'll have better luck with it.

  60. I'm not SO into reapers -- they're scary -- but this looks really good!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm a little iffy with reapers, sometimes I like them, sometimes I don't. But this one sounds good, especially the main character!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hi, Jennifer!

    Sorry it took me so long to comment...I don't have much time to blog, what with two jobs and all...but I finally made it here!

    Just want to say that the only reapers I'm familiar with are the ones in the "
    Angelfire" trilogy, and they're not exactly like death reapers. This particular novel looks terrific!! L.S. Murphy has visited and commented on my blog several times, and I've seen this book on hers. It's already on my TBR list. Thanks for featuring it!! : )

    ReplyDelete
  63. Kinda cute cover :D Seems like an interesting book ;) Great pick. <3 Hope you'll enjoy it :D Have not read any Reaper books yet, but I do own many :) Will read some soon, I think ;p
    Thank you for commenting on my WoW. <3

  64. I like books about any paranormal creature. Until now I have read only Charley Davidson series, but it was good. Did you watch TV show "Dead Like Me"? It's funny and about reapers. :)

  75. This one sounds amazing! If you like this type of story, you might want to try Croak by Gina Damico. Great pick!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I haven't seen very many stories about reapers...I think the only other one I've come across is Croak (that Liza mentioned above me). This sounds really interesting - a fall from popularity's grace, in exchange for self-discovery? Sign me up!
