Waiting on Wednesday: Reaper by L.S. Murphy

 “Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.



This week my pick is: 

Reading Level: Young Adult – Publication Date: January 7, 2013
There’s no way sixteen year old Quincy Amarante will become the fifth grim reaper. None. Not over her shiny blue Mustang. Her Jimmy Choos. Or her dead body.

She’s supposed to enjoy her sophomore year, not learn about some freaky future Destiny says she has no choice but to fulfill.

It doesn’t take long for Quincy to realize the only way out of the game is to play along especially since Death can find her anyway, anywhere, anytime. And does.

Like when she’s reassuring her friends she wants nothing to do with former best friend Ben Moorland, who’s returned from god-knows-where, and fails. Miserably.

Instead of maintaining her coveted popularity status, Quincy’s goes down like the Titanic.

Maybe … just maybe … that’s okay.

It seems, perhaps, becoming a grim reaper isn’t just about the dead but more about a much needed shift in Quincy’s priorities—from who she thinks she wants to be to who she really is.

I think this book sounds really good! I like stories about grim reapers, so I think I’d probably like it! 🙂 


What are you waiting on this week?

  1. Reaper's cover sure is an attention grabber! I'm not sure if I will read it or not (just so bogged down in books right now, not a bad thing btw :p) but thanks for sharing! ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. 🙂
