Waiting on Wednesday (12)

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

Last week I just finished the wonderful IF I LIE by Corrine Jackson (which everyone should read, by the way-- probably one of the best books I've read all year, and I've read a LOT). Stay posted, I will be hosting an interview and giveaway for IF I LIE in mid-October! Anyway, she is coming out with a paranormal YA novel soon, called Touched, and I'm really excited to get my hands on it!

Touched (Touched, #1) Goodreads Book Description: Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll becoming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first.
This is Book One in the Touched trilogy. 
Expected Publication Date: November 27, 2012

Why I am excited:  Corrine Jackson has proven her chops with the amazing, IF I LIE. Of course, my inclination is towards the paranormal/dystopian YA, so all my wishes were fulfilled when I heard about this book. I'm so excited to see what she does with it.

Why I am worried: This has nothing to do with Corrine. I think it's always a challenge to go from a single contemporary YA novel to a paranormal YA trilogy. There are a lot of different issues involved, but I think Corrine is completely up to it!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
