Title: A Want So Wicked
Author: Suzanne Young
Release Date: June 26, 2012
Publisher: Balzer + Bray (HC imprint)

From Goodreads:

Elise is a normal seventeen-year-old girl until the day she wakes up in a desert park, with no idea who she is.

After that episode, her life takes a bizarre turn. She’s experiencing unexpected flashes of insight into people’s lives—people she’s never met before. Strangers frighten her with warnings about the approaching Shadows. And although Elise has never had a boyfriend, she suddenly finds herself torn between two handsome but very different young men: Abe, the charming bad boy whose affect on her both seduces and frightens her, and the mysterious Harlin, who’s new to town but with whom Elise feels an urgent, elemental connection—almost as if they are soul mates.

Now Elise begins to question everything about her life. Why do these guys both want her so desperately? What are the Shadows? Why does the name Charlotte inspire a terrifying familiarity? And who is Elise, really?

Last year I read A Need So Beautiful, thinking it would be okay. It was wonderful, something so different that what I'd read so far. Charlotte was wonderful, the fact that there wasn't a love triangle was great, her already having a boyfriend that she loved and who loved her back was almost unheard of in a YA novel from last year. This can only be just as good, if not better. :) And remember, it's not an angel book. No angels. She's not an angel. Yes, there might be similarities, but they're not angels.
