HyperventilatingonWednesday
Welcome to my WOW, or HOW as I like to call it where I feature an upcoming release that I'm hyperventilating for! It's totally fun to geek out about upcoming releases! This event is hosted by the lovely Jill @ Breaking The Spine. Today's awesome-sauce pick is....


Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike
TBPublished: 4.30.13
Pages: 352
ADD TO GOODREADS
Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto. 

No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so--in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history--he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice. Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel

Why I'm Hyperventilating:
*cough* Scarlet Pimpernel *cough* klepto ghost *cough* HONESTLY? That along makes me scream and shout that I WANT THIS BOOK SO BAD!!! Because I seriously DIG the Scarlet Pimpernel, have you ever read it? It's like romance, and all the action/intrigue you could want IN A HISTORICAL SETTING. Boo-yah. I APPLAUD Aprilynne for taking it on and making it a ghost book too. I can't begin to describe my excitement! 

I MEAN GUYS. It's THE PIMPERNEL.

There is nothing cooler. Except maybe the Phantom and LOTR. *HYPERVENTILATING PARTY GOING ON HERE* And that's not even taking the cover!! I mean it's BEE-YOO-TI-FULLL!!! It's got this awesome vintage look going on, I'm totally into vintage and the colors are gorgeous and I LOVE those sunglasses. It's making me double excited......SO BAD. I think we can safely say I will have a fresh copy in my hands in April, if I don't get lucky for an ARC anytime sooner.

What are you waiting/hyperventilating on?

  1. I do like the cover--but The Scarlet Pimpernel? *excuse my cluelessness* But what is that? Seriously? WHAT IS IT, INKY. I MUST KNOW. Oh, and I'm loving the LotR reference.

    Also, THE SUNGLASSES ARE EPIC. THEY HAVE A REFLECTION IN THEM.

    Loves,

  3. Great choice!! I first heard about this one last week, I think. It sounds like such a weirdly awesome book LOL! I haven't actually read Aprilynne's other books, but this one sounds pretty cool! It seems like such a departure from Wings (just based on the blurbs, since I haven't read the books).

  6. Embarrassed to say I have NO idea what the Scarlet Pimpernel is about. There are so many retellings now I guess we have to go to the more obscure classics!
    But I do love ghost stories, so I'll give this one a try.
