Waiting on Wednesday (40): Ashes and Ice

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Ashes & Ice by Rochelle Maya Callen
 Release Date:  February 4th 2013 by C&C Legacy Publishing
  Format: Paperback

 Goodreads Summary:
She is desperate to remember.
He is aching to forget.
Together, they are not broken.
But together, one may not survive.

​Jade wakes up with no memory of her past and blood on her hands.

Plagued by wicked thoughts, she searches for answers. Instead, she finds a boy who doesn't offer her answers, but hope. But sometimes, when nightmares turn into reality and death follows you everywhere, hope is not enough.

LUST. LOVE. LOSS. Sometimes, all that is left are Ashes and Ice.

Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. Coverlove. Not gonna lie. #1 reason that I want to read this is for the cover. What can I say, I love great cover art for books. And, like, holy smokes. Isn't the cover for this book, just stunning? -> Obsessed!!! The blue (my fave color) with the ice all around it and those eyes looking through. It all just looks so mystical and has a winterland vibe to it with the ice and I just love it, haha.

2. The synopsis. A girl who can't remember her past and wakes up with blood on her hands? Hello, like, yes. That sounds like a good mystery to me and it seems like there is a guy who is gonna try to help her figure things out and I am SOLD ladies and gentlemen, LOL. I wanna know how all of this is gonna unfold :D

What do you guys think? :)

  9. Ahh, awesome pick :D This seems so good. <3 and the cover is GORGEOUS! But, uhm, I remember seeing this book on Goodreads, named Survived, I think, maybe, and it kind of had the same summary o.O I think. I'm pretty sure about it. Remembered that one of them died, someone said.. so I'm kind of hoping this isn't the same book :D Hih ;)
