Waiting on Wednesday #22

Waiting On Wednesday hosted by Breaking The Spine

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

Rain by Amanda Sun

Set For Release On: June 24th, 2014

Summary From GoodreadsRain

American Katie Green has decided to stay in Japan. She’s started to build a life in the city of Shizuoka, and she can’t imagine leaving behind her friends, her aunt and especially Tomohiro, the guy she’s fallen in love with. But her return is not as simple as she thought. She’s flunking out of Japanese school and committing cultural faux pas wherever she goes. Tomohiro is also struggling—as a Kami, his connection to the ancient gods of Japan and his power to bring drawings to life have begun to spiral out of control.

When Tomo decides to stop drawing, the ink finds other ways to seep into his life—blackouts, threatening messages and the appearance of unexplained sketches. Unsure how to help Tomo, Katie turns to an unexpected source for help—Jun, her former friend and a Kami with an agenda of his own. But is Jun really the ally he claims to be? In order to save themselves, Katie and Tomohiro must unravel the truth about Tomo’s dark ancestry, as well as Katie’s, and confront one of the darkest gods in Japanese legend.


I’ll admit, I still haven’t read Ink even though it has been sitting in my TBR stacks since shortly after its release. However, I really liked the premise of it, the cover is awesome, and the setting is excellent. So I have high hopes for Ink and therefore am excited for Rain which comes out this summer.

The downside here is that Rain’s cover isn’t nearly as good as Ink’s. The guy’s face is alright though I’m not sure why he’s so pissed off, but the girl’s is just off. Her right eye doesn’t look natural at all, like it was put too far in. I don’t know. Regardless I want to read this as well as Ink and see if the execution can match up to the potential of the premise.

What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^
