Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers showcase which books they are highly anticipating. This week I'm turning my spotlight on Firstlife by Gena Showalter.

NO SECOND CHANCE.
Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.
There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.
In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…
Why Am I Waiting?
Even though I wasn't really a fan of Gena Showlaters Alice in Zombieland series, I'm always willing to give an Author a second chance to woo me to their side. Firstlife definitely sounds like a series that could very well do that. Plus just look at that cover it reminds me so much of The Tenth Kingdom which
I LOVE is also about a girl stuck between realms trying to decide which she belongs too. Coincidence, I think not.
Since I'm curious, Have you heard of Firstlife before?
If so, Do you plan on reading it?
