Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting On Wednesdays is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights highly anticipated releases.

Sing Me to Sleep by Angela Morrison


Beth has always been “The Beast”—that’s what everyone at school calls her because of her awkward height, facial scars, and thick glasses. Beth’s only friend is geeky, golden-haired Scott. That is, until she’s selected to be her choir’s soprano soloist, and receives the makeover that will change her life forever.


When Beth’s choir travels to Switzerland, she meets Derek: pale, brooding, totally dreamy. Derek’s untethered passion—for music, and for Beth—leaves her breathless. Because in Derek’s eyes? She’s not The Beast, she’s The Beauty.


When Beth comes home, Scott, her best friend in the world, makes a confession that leaves her completely torn. Should she stand by sweet, steady Scott or follow the dangerous, intense new feelings she has for Derek?


The closer Beth gets to Derek, the further away he seems. Then Beth discovers that Derek’s been hiding a dark secret from her …one that could shatter everything.

This does sorta seem like your typical YA-Supernatural novel (the dark, brooding, exceptionally attractive boy hiding a 'dark secret') but the foreign location and the fact that she used to be called 'The Beast' make me intrigued. I do hope though that the makeover is gradual, and not once of those takes-off-her-glasses-and-is-suddenly-beautiful things.

What is everyone else looking forward to reading?


  1. Let's hope it is more than just your run-of-the-mill paranormal novel. It does have a great premise!

  2. This book looks super cute but you're right about it seeming like your typical YA novel. But I love the typical YA novel so I'm looking forward to reading it. I also love the cover!

  3. This sounds really interesting! I'm intrigued by the 'beast' nickname too. Great pick.
