Waiting On Wednesday: SHINE

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting books that have not yet been released but are being greatly anticipated. Today, my pick under the category "I need this book or my brain will explode" is none other than SHINE, the third book in the fantastic SHADE series by one of my favorite authors, Jeri Smith-Ready.

In this dramatic conclusion to the Shade trilogy, Aura and Zachary’s relationship sizzles as the secrets of the Shift are revealed.
     Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past. 
     As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves…even if that means betraying her own heart.

EEEEP! I love this series SO MUCH. So it's freaking me out that I have to wait until May 1st to read the conclusion. Oh, no. CONCLUSION. I DON'T WANT THIS SERIES TO BE OVER! Not only is the world Jeri Smith-Ready's created awesome and unique, the characters are made of pure awesome and the twists--and romance--keep the pages flipping of their own accord. Or possibly that's the ghosts.

But the very best part? You can read the first chapter of SHINE right here! And it's going to FREAK YOU OUT. It freaked me out. Now I'm even more excited for this release. C'mon, May! Hurry up already!
