Cover Reveal: Reap by Christina Channelle

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great 4th of July so far if you live in the States. Today I have an awesome cover reveal and a giveaway of a book coming out soon. Enjoy!

Reap by Christina Channelle

Publication Date: October 11th, 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance 


Foreign, or rather unfamiliar, would be the word I would use to describe how I felt.

Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place. I wanted to stay that way forever.

But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in the real world.

Something’s not right in Mia’s head.

The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like demeanor, James with his questioning gaze.

And Briggs.

The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.

As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …

Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.

Waiting on Wednesday #4

Imperfect SpiralImperfect Spiral by Debbie Levy

Page Count(Hardcover Edition): 352 pgs
Publisher: Walker Childrens
Publication Date: July 16th, 2013
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary


Danielle Snyder's summer job as a babysitter takes a tragic turn when Humphrey, the five-year-old boy she's watching, runs in front of oncoming traffic to chase down his football. Immediately Danielle is caught up in the machinery of tragedy: police investigations, neighborhood squabbling, and, when the driver of the car that struck Humphrey turns out to be an undocumented alien, outsiders use the accident to further a politically charged immigration debate. 

Wanting only to mourn Humphrey, the sweet kid she had a surprisingly strong friendship with, Danielle tries to avoid the world around her. Through a new relationship with Justin, a boy she meets at the park, she begins to work through her grief, but as details of the accident emerge, much is not as it seems. It's time for Danielle to face reality, but when the truth brings so much pain, can she find a way to do right by Humphrey's memory and forgive herself for his death?

 Why I want to read this:

  • The cover has a dark meaning but is enticing
  • The synopsis grabbed me
  • The central theme seems to be forgive and forget, which is what I really need to work on.
