Waiting on Wednesday


  "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Sing Sweet Nightingale by Erica Cameron. Here's the synopsis:

Mariella Teagen hasn't spoken a word in four years.

She pledged her voice to Orane, the man she loves—someone she only sees in her dreams. Each night, she escapes to Paradise, the world Orane created for her, and she sings for him. Mariella never believed she could stay in Paradise longer than a night, but two weeks before her eighteenth birthday, Orane hints that she may be able to stay forever.

Hudson Vincent made a pledge to never fight again.

Calease, the creature who created his dream world, swore that giving up violence would protect Hudson. But when his vow caused the death of his little brother, Hudson turned his grief on Calease and destroyed the dream world. The battle left him with new abilities and disturbing visions of a silent girl in grave danger—Mariella.

Now, Hudson is fighting to save Mariella's life while she fights to give it away. And he must find a way to show her Orane’s true intentions before she is lost to Paradise forever.

I think this book sounds awesome, I love the idea of being able to stay inside your dreams, especially if it's paradise.  I love the idea of the other guy fighting to save her, can you SAY romantic?  Okay, I have no idea if there is any romance but I like the idea that there is.  

Basically, I love the concept, the title, and the cover and I can't wait to read it. 
Sing Sweet Nightingale is published on 4th March, 2014 with no news at present of any UK release.  


  1. The dream aspect is kind of creepy to me though-sometimes my dreams are scary and bizarre and I wouldn't want to live in them permanently. Thank you for introducing this one to me-I'm going to have to spend some time thinking about it now!

    1. I'm about to pre order this one as I really want to read it!
