Waiting On Wednesday (3/23)


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights an upcoming book release that we are eagerly anticipating.
 *Thanks Danny @ Bewitched Bookworms for the button.:)

This should come as no surprise to anyone that Kim Harrison is my favorite Urban Fantasy author. And I'm really excited, because she's been busy - she has 4 new releases this year!*squee* Pale Demon, the 9th book in the Hollows series came out last month (and read and reviewed my yours truly here), and coming up next for us are a graphic novel (late summer) and a book about The Hollows world and characters - The Hollows Insider (late fall). But what I'm really looking forward to is the 3rd book in her Madison Avery series. Sadly, this is the final book in her Young Adult series, and I can't wait to see how things are going to be for Madison. I really hope she gets her HEA!

Something Deadly This Way Comes (Madison Avery #3)
Pub.: 5/24/2011 by HarperCollins Publishers

I'm Madison Avery, in charge of heaven's hit squad . . . and fighting it all the way.
When Madison died the night of her prom, she knew her life would never be the same. Now she has a powerful amulet, a team of rogue angels by her side, and the ability to flash forward into the future to see the shape of destiny. And of course, now she's finally with Josh—a perfect boyfriend who doesn't even mind that she's dead.
But being dead has its disadvantages, too. Madison feels caught between the light and the dark, and between her real life and her timekeeper status. When Madison has the opportunity to get her body back—to be alive again—she faces her most difficult decision yet. If she claims it, she could return to being a normal girl—and have a chance at a real relationship with Josh. But would having the one thing she wants most in the world also mean giving up everything she's worked so hard for?

Previous books in the series:
Once Dead, Twice Shy (Madison Avery, #1)
Early to Death, Early to Rise (Madison Avery, #2) 

 So this is the last book in the Madison Avery series. After the graphic novel and the Hollows insider, there are going to be 2 or 3 more The Hollows books and... that's it or Kim Harrison for now. *tear* I know she is ready to move on, and she's eager to write something completely different, but I'm not. LOL *sigh*

What are you waiting on this week?;)

Have you read this series?

See ya!


  1. Why haven't I heard of this series until now? This sounds awesome! I shall add the entire series to my TBR pile! Awesome Pick!

    My WoW

  2. @Naj Well, Kim's Young Adult series is not as well known as her Adult Urban Fantasy series. But it's still very good!<3 So give it a shot!;)

  3. I have been meaning to read this series. I love Kim's Rachel Morgan series so I am sure this will be great. Great pick, it reminded me to start looking for these.

  4. I hope when you get it, it will be everything you hope it to be. Check out what I am Waiting On Wednesday for.

  5. I'm not familiar with the series but I'll sure check it out ;)

    Check out my picks for my WoW this week.

  6. Whoa! This is the last Madison book?! So didn't know that! Remember Kim saying that the Hallows would likely be ending in another 2 or 3 books, but not her YA. Sob! Hope she will still write something!

    Here's my WoW

    Happy Reading!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  7. I saw this the first book in this series at the bookstore the other day, but I hadn't heard of it before so I wasn't sure if I should pick it up or not.

    Now I think I'll have to give it a chance! I like the plot. It sounds pretty good!


  8. Love Kim Harrison but have not read her YA series yet, another on my TBR pile :)

  9. Well, this is the last book in the Madison Avery series. It's YA, so it's lighter on the plot and characters, but it's still very good and full of Kim Harrison's characteristic humor. Love it!<3

  10. I hadn't heard of this series. Sounds good, I will have to check it out.


Thanks for stopping by! I love comments! ♥
