Waiting on Wednesday (29): Storm

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
The following book is on my "ARC wishlist" shelf. You know. In case anybody wants to do a trade or something. :) 

Storm by Brigid Kemmerer
April 24, 2012 by Kensington Teen

Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they have more power than you dream. 

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn't want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death. 

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca. 

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all. 

The storm is coming . . . 

This one sounds so good that I'm definitely going to have to email my Kensington contact and beg for a copy (hee.) but I'm not really digging that cover. Don't have a lot of strong opinions about it; do you? Also, every time I read about this book or see the cover, I think of this song and start singing it. My life, yo. 

What are you guys waiting on?


  1. Great pick! I haven't heard of this one yet but it sounds really good. Definitely must add this to my list now. I am not all that crazy for the cover either but it doesn't really bother me all that much.

  10. This books sounds so awesome! Kind of like Playing with Fire by Gena Showalter, but with a new and exciting twist on it! xD
    I'm not really liking the cover much either, but it's not the horrible one that I've ever seen.

    Nice pick this week!

    Wanna check out my WoW?

  11. The cover doesn't do it for me at all- too brooding! They lok like such posers! But it does sound like a good book so maybe some selective cover blindness is needed here!

    Giveaway: A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink

  16. The cover isn't that attention grabbing but the summary is. I'm finding the prettiest covers don't always have the best stories lol

  17. What a great pick, this one does sounds so good! I'm not too crazy about the cover either, but can't complain too much about cute boys, right?! lol! Thanks for the rec! Happy reading :)

  18. This story does sound really good and I love the concept of controlling the elements but... that COVER?!? Haha it reminds me of like a cheesy 80's band poster or something ^_^ Still if that story is good it doesn't matter! Thanks for letting me know about this one!

    You can check out my WoW for this week at the link below-- Happy Reading!

  20. Hmmm, I'm not that big of fan of that cover either. It looks a bit cheap. The story itself sounds great though! I hope you can get a copy (:

  21. I've seen this one around A LOT and I am so looking forward to it!! It looks so awesome :) Great pick!!

  22. The only thing I do like about this cover is that the front guy kinda looks a bit like the actor who plays Jason Dilaurentis on Pretty Little Liars who I geek out for, I think his name is Drew Van Acker? but that's about it.

    I do like the book summary for this one, sounds good. Thanks so much for sharing and stopping by :)

  25. I have seen this one before good choice click on my name to see my pick.

  26. Oh yeah, I've been wanting this book too! :) Though I have to say, the AUS cover is amazing! :D

  27. Cool choice! Am I the only one who thinks of Avatar: the Last Airbender when I read this blurb? I love that show. I wonder if the characters are "bending" the elements.

  28. Cathy, nope! I thought of Avatar: The Last Airbender the first time I heard about this book. I love that show, too, and now I'm wondering if they are bending the elements!

    I also now really want to watch Avatar. Thanks! :p

  29. Storm does sound fantastic! People who can control the elements sounds so cool! I'm actually organizing a blog tour that deals with people who can control the elements too, it's an excellent theme!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog - your WoW choice rocks!
