Waiting on Wednesday: A Need So Beautiful

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a fun way to see what books other bloggers just can't wait to get their hands on!




A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL
Suzanne Young
Paranormal Young Adult
June 21st, 2011

From Goodreads:

Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.

There have been others before who’ve felt the Need, but they’re gone—erased from the memories of everyone whose lives they had touched. It's as though they never existed. This is the fate that awaits Charlotte. But the last thing Charlotte wants to do is disappear, to be Forgotten. She wants to stay with her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend’s arms forever. She wishes she could just ignore the Need, but she can’t. And as everyone important in her life begins to slowly forget her, she has to decide if she’ll fight the Need in order to remain herself—no matter how dark the consequences.


I'm quite intrigued with this one, it sounds like a different take on an angel mythology and one that promises all sorts of complex emotional reactions, so I'm looking forward to June!

  2. I've been debating this one for a little while now. The premise certainly sounds different from any other story I've ever read. I also like the cover.

  8. It reminds me a little of Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. There's a city of Gods -- they have the ability to grant wishes or perform miraculous cures, but have to give up their own lives in order to do so.
