Waiting on Wednesday #43

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight a book you're giddy with excitement to read so other people can be giddy with excitement too :)

Author: Brigid Kemmerer
Release Date: 24th April 2012
Publisher: Kensington / Allen & Unwin AU
Add it: Goodreads
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 . . .
US cover - which do you prefer? US or AU?

Okay, so I usually do two WoW picks each week and I *try* to find ones that not tooooo many people know about, but those plans went out the door this week when I stumbled across the Australian cover for Storm. I just HAD to share it and a medium-sized version of the cover was just not going to cut it. Because look! It's amazing! I am so freaking excited for this book and Brigid is seriously one of the sweetest, most friendliest authors <3

Plus FOUR hot guys. And they're brothers. Who wield control over elements. And they're powerful. And dangerous. Are you swooning yet? I sure am. A storm is coming.... run? Hide? No way, I'm launching myself dead in the centre of it. Bring on April!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. Such a GREAT pick this week Brodie!! And I agree with you wholeheartedly, the Aussie cover is SO much better. I'd be curious at what the UK cover looks like! :D

    But this story sounds sooo intriguing, and... oh... would you look at that... added on goodreads! :p <3

  5. I'd say the US cover because the guy is hot, but that's just my hormones speaking. Kidding! I love the AU cover, it looks a lot more grand than the US :)

    As always, great WoW pick, Brodie!

  6. haha, I <3 you. The AU cover is better than the US cover I think.

    This novel sounds amazing though! Can't wait to read it. Four hot brothers...yeah not exactly wanting to run away. :)

    Great choice as always Brodie.

  10. I love the AUS cover version. I hope I can get my hands on it, but I'm guessing that might not be so easy.

    My WOW

  11. I've been seeing this around in Goodreads! I like the AU cover better! There's just something about the US cover that isn't exactly pretty for me. It's the blue. It's too pale to match the intensity of a 'storm.' Great pick!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've been looking forward to this book for a while now. I don't know which cover I like most . . . hmmm . . . probably the AUS cover. Looks interesting. Oh wait - I love the US cover . . . oh my can't choose! hehe.

  13. OH MY! HOT GUYS <33 Hmm...I really like both covers! But I think the AU one is better :D Can't wait for this <3

  30. Can't actually wait for this one! SO excited for it, and I LOVE the AU cover! I mean, I do really like the US one too, but the AU one is just awesome. That whole twisty-curly bit with the font is brilliant! Great pick, Brodie! :)

  31. Oooh, I've been waiting to read this for ages, but hadn't seen the Aussie cover. Totally in love---it's yummy. I <3 it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That Australian cover is AWESOME. And the girl in it looks a lot like Eliza Dushku and so now I'm imagining her being all kick ass and snarky like pre murderous Faith.
