Cover Reveal: Through Glass by Rebecca Ethington

We are so excited to be able to bring to you the cover reveal for Rebecca Ethington’s Through Glass, which releases in less than a month on September 20th, 2013.

Both the book’s cover and description are awesome and more than a little bit chilling, and we cannot wait for its release.

If you’d like to know more about the author, Rebecca Ethington, be sure to check out her website, or any of the other places she hangs out online.

And if you can’t wait until September 20th for the release of THROUGH GLASS, the first book in her Imdalind series, KISS OF FIRE, is now available in eBook format for free at AMAZON, BARNES & NOBLE and for the KOBO.

We love the cover, but what do you think?

About Through Glass

Everyone remembers the day the sky went black. They remember the screams as the blackness ate those who were out in the open, those who surrounded themselves by light, and those who made noise.

Everyone remembers the voice from the sky, the way food disappeared.

Everyone remembers the day the sky went black, and the sun was wiped from the sky.

At least that’s what I hope. I hope that there is an ‘everyone’ that will remember.

I hope that I am not alone.

Because I remember.

I remember, because it was the day I became alone.

It was the day the house went silent, and the birds stopped singing. It was the day when everyone disappeared, everyone except the boy, the only person I have seen in two years.

The boy I talk to through the glass.

About the Author

Rebecca Ethington has been telling stories since she was small. First, with writing crude scripts, and then on stage with years of theatrical performances. The Imdalind Series is her first stint into the world of literary writing.

Rebecca is a mother to two, and wife to her best friend of 14 years. She was born and raised in the mountains of Salt Lake City, and hasn’t found the desire to leave yet. Her days are spent writing, running, and enjoying life with her amazing family.

A to Z Book Blogger Survey

Last week, Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner created this blogging survey. I'm trying to get over my blogging slump and I love all kinds of surveys, so I'm (very belatedly) jumping on the bandwagon.

Author You've Read The Most Books From

I think Terry Goodkind wins this one, as I've read 13 of his books. He's closely followed by J.R. Ward and Gena Showalter - I've read 12 for both of them.

Best Sequel Ever

I fail at reading sequels a lot of the time, and I really need to be better about this. But off the top of my head, I would say Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi. This was a case where I thought the sequel was even better than the first book.

Currently Reading

I'm in the middle of Breaking Glass by Lisa Amowitz and a reread of Lover Unbound by J.R. Ward.

Drink of Choice While Reading

Coffee is my preference, but I also drink Diet Mountain Dew and/or water a lot while reading.

E-reader or physical book?

Give me a physical book any day. Though I do love the convenience of an e-reader for traveling and because I am simply out of space for real books. (Really, I can barely walk around my apartment for all the stacks and stacks of books.)

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated in High School

This would be so much easier if it were fictional character I would date now. But since it asks about high school, probably someone like Augustus from The Fault in Our Stars or Matt from Things I Can't Forget.

Glad You Gave This Book a Chance

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I know, I know. But once upon a time, I wasn't a big fan of contemporary YA. Then I started reading books like this one, and they changed my mind.

Hidden Gem Book

Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst. I loved this book and think it's a perfect example of a fantasy standalone.

Important Moment in Your Reading Life

There are so many. Cop-out though it may be, I have to say reading Twilight. Without the fan site I joined because of it, I wouldn't have found the friends and book recommendations that led me to blogging.

Just Finished

I just finished reading The Obsidian Pebble by Rhys A. Jones. Look for this in October! It's a great MG mystery.

Kinds of Books You Won't Read

Nora Roberts-type romance books. I have nothing against them, they just aren't my thing. (I prefer my romance to be paranormal or NA.)

Longest Book You've Read

At 979 pages, Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind.

Major Book Hangover Because of

I can think of several, but one of the biggest ones was probably Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward.

Number of Bookcases You Own

Do tables count in this number? No? Then I have eight. (Plus a kitchen table, end tables, a coffee table, an entertainment get the idea.)

One Book You Have Read Multiple Times

There are several series I've read multiple times (Harry Potter, Black Dagger Brotherhood, Sword of Truth), but for a single book, Phantom by Susan Kay and Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

Preferred Place to Read

On my couch, or sometimes in my bed, snuggled under blankets.

Quote That Inspires You

I've been trying to be better about recording quotes that strike me when I'm reading. I love quotes and sometimes spend hours searching for the perfect one for something. One day I'll just keep a notebook or a Word document. But for now, here is one of my favorite quotes from the Sword of Truth Series:

"Your life is yours alone. Rise up and live it."

Reading Regret

I regret every time I let reading feel more like a chore rather than remembering why I love it and letting myself read whatever I want to whenever I want to.

Series You Started and Need to Finish (series is complete)

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I've read the first two books, and one day I really will read the others, I swear.

Three of Your All Time Favorite Books

This question never gets easier, so I'm going to cheat. For series, Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind, Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward, and Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling. For standalone books, Phantom by Susan Kay, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, and Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

Unapologetic Fangirl For

All of Andrea Cremer's books. She's probably my favorite YA author.

Very Excited for This Release More Than All the Others

The King by J.R. Ward and Snakeroot by Andrea Cremer.

Worst Bookish Habit

I don't think I have bad book habits as far as how I treat them, but I do have a tendency to forget to use bookmarks and then have to spend way too much time remembering what page I was on later.

X Marks the Spot: Start at the top left of your shelf and pick the 27th book

From the shelf I can see, Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill.

Your Latest Book Purchase

That's a good question. I've been on somewhat of a book-buying ban lately, but I'm sure the last book I bought was at a signing.

ZZZ-Snatcher Book (last one that kept you up way too late)

All of them? Is that an answer? No? Then probably Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

What are some of your answers? Do we have any in common? If you've done this survey, please leave me links so I can see your answers!

"Waiting on" Wednesday

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

This week's selection is:

By: Jamie Blair
Published By: Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers
Release Date: Sept. 3, 2013
Preorder the Book: Amazon

Goodreads Summary: Can true love be built on lies? A teen on the run seeks relief and redemption in this gripping, romantic read.

Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth:

Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her.

Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?

Why it's wanted:

This premise sounds different that anything I've read before and also like it can be an emotional story. I really want to see how everything comes together.
