**Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.**
For this week’s WOW post I am doing something very different. This ‘Waiting On’ is for a book that is NOT currently being published but I WANT it to be! I am hoping and praying that the ‘powers that be’ will someday let it be so!
A Desire So Deadly (A Need So Beautiful #3) by Suzanne Young
Anticipated Publication Date: Someday in the Future
For those of you who may not know, the A Need So Beautiful series currently has 2 published books. Unfortunately, as of right now, this is all the publisher has picked up for the series. *cries*
So why, may you ask, is this picture here acting as a pretend cover for a book that does not exist? Well, Suzanne once told me she made a fake red cover for Harlin and the book she would love to write.
And no, your eyes are not deceiving you. That is Caleb Followill from the Kings of Leon. In a twitter chat with Suzanne on July 9th, hosted by Novel Novice and Epic Reads, she tweeted this picture and said she used this as an inspiration for Harlin. As a HUGE Kings of Leon fan AND A Need So Beautiful fan, this delighted me to no end.
What you may have missed from the chat is that there are many fans of this series who are hoping that one day this next book can be so. Jen @ Jenuine Cupcakes even suggested during the chat that we become Harlin’s Street Team! (I fully support this!) Suzanne has not only expressed interest on twitter, but also in an interview with Loretta @ Between the Pages where she states, “I would love a third book. It would be called A DESIRE SO DEADLY and it would be focused on Seers.” (Go read the rest of the interview. It is FAB!) Guys, Harlin is a seer! This means we would get LOTS of Harlin! She also told me there would be alot of kissing! More Harlin and more kissing. YES PLEASE!
But it isn’t just Harlin and the hopes for a lot of kissing that make me NEED another book. Even though A Want So Wicked ends in a good way, I feel like there is so much more to explore with the Forgotten, Shadows and Seers. I WANT to know more. I DESIRE more. (okay, sorry if that was cheesy. hehe) But in all seriousness, I feel like a deeper look into the Seers’ way of life will be heartbreakingly beautiful, with the potential to surpass the other books.
If anyone reading this post has not read this series yet, I implore you to go out and get a copy of both books! A Need So Beautiful was such a powerful and emotional read and the sequel, A Want So Wicked, was darker with the same emotions running high. The writing is beautiful with powerful endings that took my breath away. It is a very interesting take on angels and has easily become some of my favorite books. Oh, did I mention Harlin rides a motorcycle? *grins*
If you are a fan of the first book and have not had a chance to pick up the sequel, I truly hope you will give it a go and help spread the love and word of mouth of this series. You will want this book to happen!
So the moral of this… post, is that I will continue to ‘Wait On’ this novel until the publisher, *waves at Balzer and Bray and Harper Collins* hears my pleas and decides to green light this book. If anyone has any additional ideas to help promote this, I would love to hear them!
“I’ve missed you so much,” I whisper as he kisses my neck. “Even when I didn’t know you, my soul still missed you.”
