Waiting on Wednesday: Some Quiet Place, by Kelsey Sutton

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine to highlight upcoming books we're excited about.

This week's pick:

Exptected release: July 8, 2013
Publisher: Flux
Format: Paperback, 360 pages

Elizabeth Caldwell has perfected the art of pretending to feel emotion, but it’s always a lie. After a near-fatal car accident when she was a small child, Elizabeth lost the ability to feel any emotion, but along with that loss she gained bizarre abilities: she can see the personified Emotions she cannot feel. Fury, Resentment, Longing—they’ve all given up on her, because she doesn't succumb to their touch. All, that is, save one. Fear. He’s consumed by the mystery of Elizabeth’s past, consumed by her.

And then there are Elizabeth's cryptic, recurring dreams, in which there’s always love, and there’s always death. Haunted by these dreams, Elizabeth paints them, knowing that they somehow hold the key to the mystery of her past.

But a shadowy menace is stalking Elizabeth. Her survival depends on uncovering the truth about herself. And when it matters most, she won’t be able to rely on Fear to save her.

This just sounds so amazing! A girl pretending to feel emotion, and personified emotions around her. I want to know more about Fear, and Elizabeth's dreams. Love and Death and Fear all tangled up - I think this will be my kind of book! And I love the autumn-feel of the cover.
