Waiting on Wednesday... Hush, Hush #3!

This is my first ever Waiting on Wednesday post... a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets you gush about what upcoming books you're dying to read!

This week was my sister's birthday and I gave her copies of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.  She picked up Hush, Hush first and read it in one sitting and immediately moved on to the sequel Crescendo and blazed through that one too. (I guess it runs in the family...)

I loved hearing her experience of first reading this awesome series and it really got me excited again about the release of the final book in the series Silence, which is due out October 18th, 2011! The title was recently changed from Tempest to Silence, but I'm not sure why...

Here are the summaries for all three books... enjoy! And let me know what you're "waiting on" in the comments! :)

In the interest of time and clarity, all summaries are taken from the Goodreads pages.

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something.
Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

#3: Silence

The Hush, Hush series has captivated readers with the story of Nora Grey, her friend Vee, and a mysterious fallen archangel named Patch. In the gripping conclusion of the trilogy, Nora finds that as things start to unravel around her, she is more drawn to the enigmatic Patch. She soon discovers that the answers lie closer to home than she realized, and it is time for her to take control of her destiny once and for all.

So, that's what I'm waiting on! What are you dying to read this week??
