Waiting on Wednesday: Torment

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking  the Spine. The idea behind this meme is to highlight up and coming releases that we just can't wait to read. Today's choice is Torment by Lauren Kate.

I specifically chose this because:
1) I'm really looking forward to reading the sequel to Fallen (which, despite the many mixed reviews  this book received, I loved) and
2) I'm in the process of writing the review for Fallen and will have it up later this week. (I'm gunning for tomorrow, but I'm counting on the fact that daily life and work won't get in the way of this goal)

Torment by Lauren Kate
Release date: 28 September 2010
Summary from Goodreads.com
How many lives do you need to live before you find someone worth dying for? In the aftermath of what happened at Sword & Cross, Luce has been hidden away by her cursed angelic boyfriend, Daniel, in a new school filled with Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. 

Daniel promises she will be safe here, protected from those who would kill her. At the school Luce discovers what the Shadows that have followed her all her life mean - and how to manipulate them to see into her other lives.

Yet the more Luce learns about herself, the more she realizes that the past is her only key to unlocking her future...and that Daniel hasn't told her everything. 

What if his version of the past isn't actually the way things happened...what if Luce was really meant to be with someone else? 

How fabulous is the cover? And how awesome does this book sound? I'm dying to find out what's going to happen next that's for sure. 

Anyway, what's on your Waiting on Wednesday list? Let me know - I'm always looking for more books to add to my reading pile.

Dying for Torment to come out too.
Loved the cover for both books and the graphic artist behind them is a genius. Elegant, dark and incredibly beautiful.
Fallen is worth it, no doubt Torment will deliver with a bang.
