Waiting on Wednesday: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

(Everlife #1)
Publication Date: February 23, 2016
Hardcover, 416 pages, Harlequin Teen
Genres: YA, Paranormal




Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.

There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.

In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…

My Thoughts

A new YA series by Gena Showalter?! Can you see my drool? I’m hoping to get my hands on this baby before it releases because I need it ASAP! If you have an ARC I will trade/sell my soul for it. I know there isn't much time left until its release, but I still need it! Please? Anyone?

EDIT: I actually received a Netgalley ARC of this book. Yay
I have to say THANK YOU to Harlequin Teen for letting me read and review this. Gena Showalter is a writing goddess and being able to get an early look at one of her works makes me want to sing nah-nah-nah-nah-boo-boo to everyone who has to wait until release day to get this. (I’m totally just kidding. I don’t get ARCs that often, so I feel your pain.) I’m going to stop being weird now.

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. I really want to read this one too! I'm glad you were able to get a copy from NetGalley! I hope you are enjoying it! Great pick! Here's my WoW. Happy reading!

    1. Thanks! My review should be up on its release day! ;)

  2. Waiting for Glass Sword, though now that I seen this, I like this one too!

  3. My netgalley request is still "pending." Ugh, I hate when publishers do that. Just say "no!"


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
