I wanted to commit to one book meme only. One that I can actually do (on a weekly basis), so I decided to pick “Waiting on Wednesday.” How it works, here:

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event courtesy of Breaking the Spine that showcases much anticipated upcoming releases.

Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Expected publication: January 3rd 2012
Publisher: Harper Collins / Balzer + Bray)
Format/Pages: Hardcover, 384 pages

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she’s returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld… this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she’s forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole’s… (goodreads)

Why: Another take on Persephone/Hades story. I like The Goddess Test which also happens to have the same theme. But from what I gather, people are raving about Everneath. They said it was unexpected and well-written. Almost all of them gave it 5-stars and that saying something. Well, I’m not hard to please but I do have a feeling that I might like it. Can’t wait 😉
