Waiting on Wednesday: Reaping Me Softly, by Kate Evangelista

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine to showcase books we can't wait to get our greedy bookish fingers on. Here's my pick this week:

Expected release: October 30th, 2012
Publisher: Omnific Publishing
Format: Paperback

Goodreads Description:
Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clark, is a Reaper.

At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?

I discovered this one when the cover was revealed last week. It's so gorgeous! I love reaper books and I'm curious to see how the theme is handled in this one and who that person Niko accidentally reaps is. I also enjoy reading about characters who have to deal with divided loyalties, so I think this one will be a great read :)

What are your thoughts on my pick, and what are you anxiously waiting for? Link me up in the comments :)


  1. Great WoW. I've seen Reaping Me Softly around and it sounds awesome.

  2. This is totally in my reading pile! I can't wait for it! I really love the cover and the synopsis is really intriguing!

  3. Oh! I discovered this one last week with the cover reveal, too! Reapers are my new go-to paranormal entity. :P

    And you should totally pick up Cinder. I was very iffy, too, because retellings are always hit or miss for me, but it was very sci-fi and it doesn't really feel like a reimagining for most of the book. I reviewed the audiobook last week, I think, and gave it 5 stars. Seriously, I loved that book. :D

    Anyway, thanks for sharing & for stopping by my WoW post. Happy Wednesday! :D
