Me on Waiting on Wednesday (111)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Breath
Author: Jackie Morse Kessler
Release Date: April 16, 2013
Publisher: Graphia (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt imprint)

From Goodreads:

Contrary to popular belief, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse aren’t just harbingers of doom—they actually keep life in balance. But what happens when their leader and creator, Death, becomes suicidal?

Before the first living thing drew its first gasping breath, he was there. He has watched humanity for millennia. And he has finally decided that humanity is not worth the price he has paid time and again. When Death himself gives up on life, a teenager named Xander Atwood is the world’s only hope. But Xander bears a secret, one that may bring about the end of everything.

This heart-pounding final installment of the Riders of the Apocalypse series looks at the value of life, the strength of love, and how a small voice can change everything . . . forever.

Seeing this coming out in April reminds me that A) I really enjoy this series, and B) that I need a copy of the second one (that I've read) and that I need to read the third one even though it'll wreck me. This series has a way of making me remember the sad and depressing and horrid parts of high school, but books that make me feel are awesome. I hope there are teenagers who read this series and feel those things, too.

  4. I haven't heard of this series either, but the premise sounds so intriguing! The four horseman? I have a vague knowledge of who they are, but I would definitely be up to learning more about them!

    New GFC follower! Would love it if you could return the favor. :)

  5. I tried reading a series about the Horsemen before and really disliked it. I'll have to look more into this one. I love that cover though. Great pick!
