Waiting on Wednesday (15)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
I first heard about it from PageTurnersBlog.

My Waiting on Wednesday this week:
The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
Publication Date: April 12, 2011

Strange things are happening in Maya's tiny Vancouver Island town. First, her friend Serena, the captain of the swim team, drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya's home—and her reactions to them are somewhat . . . unexpected. Her best friend, Daniel, has also been experiencing unexplainable premonitions about certain people and situations.

It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret, and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy—her paw-print birthmark.

I love Kelley Armstrong’s writing, however I haven’t read any of her YAs before. Out of her adult books, I’m only three books into her Women of the Otherworld series, but I fell in love with her writing from the first. I have no doubt her YA series would be just as good. I really love how Kelley combines a whole bunch of paranormal elements into her stories, rather than having just one, such as werewolves or vampires. It’s more realistic to think that if one paranormal creature exists, then all the others we know of must exist as well. I look forward to finding time to read the rest of her adult series and all of her YAs as well!

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?


  1. I love Kelley Armstrong too - one of my favourite authors. I've read most of her adult books (apart from the last one) but I have only read one of her YA novels. I will have to catch up.

  2. Another book I haven't heard of :D Though I have read one or two books by Kelly Armstrong. Added to my list, thanks for sharing.

    Here is my WoW,

  3. I haven't started this series yet, but I really like Kelley Armstrong

  4. I'm really excited about this one, too! I really liked her first YA series, but haven't read anything else that she's written. Great pick :)

  5. I’ve only read one book by this author, but I really dug her writing style. Nice WOW pick & thanks for visiting mine. Sorry I didn’t make it over here sooner :)
