Before I say anything, just let me say this: the cover for Reaping Me Softly is seriously stunning. But you can't see it yet. *Insert evil laugh here*
First, I have to share the deats! This exquisite Young Adult novel is brought to you by Kate Evangelista (author) and Omnific Publishing. Its expected release date is October 30, 2012--that's not too far away!
I know, I know--too much talk! But before I show you the cover, don't you want to know what the book's about?
Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clark, is a Reaper.
At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?
Sounds awesome, right? I know you want to read it, but you need to know what to look for in bookstores and libraries. So, I'll finally show you the cover! Drum roll, please...
Isn't this cover gorgeous and breathtaking and just awesome? I love everything about it: the font, the background, the butterflies in the cage--everything. I love it so much that I just went and added Reaping Me Softly on Goodreads. (You should, too!)
There you have it--the cover reveal for Reaping Me Softly by Kate Evangelista, out October 30, 2012. Don't forget to check it out; I'm sure you won't regret it! Thanks for stopping by Beauty and the Bookshelf!
