Waiting on Wednesday (Mar. 2)

Heya!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I feel like I've been neglecting the 2011 Debut Author Challenge lately and I'm sorry about that. So here are some pretty amazing debut novels that I'm eagerly anticipating:


Hereafter (Hereafter #1) by Tara Hudson - June 7th 2011 (HarperCollins)

Can there truly be love after death?

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won't want to miss.

Yup, I really don't want to miss this one. I love ghost stories and this one sounds fantastic, I'm really curious where a relationship between a ghost girl and a boy could get.:D Oh, and I LOVE the cover!<3
BTW, author Tara Hudson is giving away 3 ARC of her awesome debut novel. Visit her blog to get the dets and enter the contest, it's pretty easy!:)

And another debut novel I'm really, really excited about is The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter. <3

The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1) by Aimee Carter - April 19th 2011 (Harlequin Teen)

 Every girl who has taken the test has died.

Now it's Kate's turn.

It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.

Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

If she fails...

(Goodreads)

How about a modern turn of some Greek mythology? And I really want to meet this Henry. :D I've also read some very good ARC's reviews and this book sounds very good and refreshing!
