Waiting on Wednesday (61) - Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

8:00 AM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: December 27, 2011
Publisher: EgmontUSA

Summary (from author's website):
Every other day, Kali D'Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She attends pep rallies. She's human.

And then every day in between...She's something else entirely.

Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism.

When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her and, unfortunately, she'll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive...and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.

Aren't you just in love with the concept of Every Other Day? I know I sure am! Can you imagine having special powers... only to not be able to use them on the day you need it the most? I think this will be great supernatural novel to read and I'm looking forward to learning more about Kali's abilities! I'm also intrigued by its cover too...

  14. I loved the concept of this book ( Every Other Day)right off the bat. A girl who becomes a Buffy-like character and defeats evil creatures and kicks butt one day...but then is morphed back into a normal, weak teenage girl every other day? That's interesting. And of course, it gets even more interesting when she finds a girl she must save in less than 24 hours...while she is a normal teen girl.
