Waiting on Wednesday {28}

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

As I Wake
by Elizabeth Scott (September 15, 2011)
What if you woke up and didn't know where you were?

What if you didn't know who you were?

And what if, when your memories started to come back--what if they didn't match the you that you're supposed to be?

Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them--and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.

Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust. {taken from}

How freaking awesome does this book sound?!  First of all, it's ELIZABETH SCOTT! Love her!  Amnesia?! Mystery?! Random boy showing up out of nowhere?! Sign me up!!  I'm totally thrown by this cover, too because it's not your typical E Scott.  I'm lovin' it though.

**Side note - there's an Elizabeth Scott Week going on very, very soon. Have you signed up for it yet?!  You want to! I hear E Scott herself is giving away some pretty fantastic books.  Check it here.

What are you "waiting on" this Wednesday??



  1. What?! Oh. My. Gosh! I didn't know about this one. I love the cover, yet I agree it doesn't look like a typical E. Scott book. It sounds amazing... rushing off to put this on my Wishlist :)

  2. i have this on my wishlist (which just keeps on getting longer and longer! LOL) not only is the premise sound promising... BUT the book cover is just so gorgeous!

  3. This book sounds fantastic! my TBR pile is growing..

    I am a new follower :)

    My WoW for this week:

  4. This looks awesome. I love the cover! Orange! There should be more of it on covers.

  5. This cover is so gorgeous - would almost be enough reason to get a copy of this book. The summary also sounds awesome, so this will definitely be on my wishlist now.
    Great pick, thanks for sharing!

    (My WoW)

  6. OMG an Elizabeth Scott mystery? THIS SOUNDS AWESOME!

  7. The cover does look pretty crazy! This one sounds absolutely fascinating. Guess I'm gonna have to add it to my list! :)

  8. I really enjoy Elizabeth Scott too and I've had my eye on this one. The premise sounds really unique; plus, that's a pretty eye-catching cover! Great pick!

  9. This book sounds AMAZING, not to mention the crazy awesome cover! That is so cool. And I love the plot idea. I (shamefully) haven't read any of Elizabeth's other novels, but judging by what everyone says about her, methinks I need to rectify that asap!

    My WoW

  10. I've never read anything by Elizabeth Scott, though I love the look of Stealing Heaven... Maybe I should if you have a ES week coming up :L This one sounds good, and the cover is super cool! :D Happy reading!

  11. OK ~ another book on my "To Be Read" list :-) Sounds good! Hmmm. . . wondering how it would be for my book club also?? And What am I Waiting For?? Would have to be our adventure to go see our new grandbaby ~ our first!! ~ a little girl names Soleil ~ a week old!! :-)

  12. Wow, this book sounds fantastic. I felt my heart beat a little faster just reading about the confusion and mystery and romance! Holla!

    Haha, thanks for sharing!!

  13. I looooove this cover and you're so right it doesn't seem like the rest of her books. Great pick, this one is definitely on my list! =)

  14. Never heard of this one but that cover is awesome!!! And I love that description...definitely adding this one to my TBR pile!


  15. And everyone can have a chance to win this book because Elizabeth is including this book in the sets she is giving away!!!

  16. LOL, I'm laughing because we both used the phrase "Sign me up!" in our WoW posts this week.

    This book sounds really good, and that cover is AMAZING! great pick!

    Here's my Waiting on Wednesday pick. :)

  17. Ungh, that cover (yes, that is the sound of longing). I want to read this one so bad, it's borderline painful.

  18. This sounds so good! Definitely adding it to my to-read

  19. The cover is different! A good different :D It makes me want to read the synopsis to see if I can gain some knowledge on WHY the cover looks that way.

  20. The cover through me too!!! I had no clue it was by Elizabeth Scott until I saw someone say it was! Great pick! And I cannot wait for E. Scott Week! I already have one book read and ready to post the review!
