Waiting on Wednesday- A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young

"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."

My Thoughts: I loved Suzanne's debut novel and have been a huge fan of hers since before her debut even came out when I got to read The Naughty List in May of 2009. I still have yet to read the two sequels (bad blogger!), though I've started on the second. Anyway, aside from being a huge Suzanne fan, I'm really excited for this because back in June 2009, I got to read the first three chapters of it and I've been wanting to know what happens next! The publication of this book too is just great on its own because I know how much Suzanne wanted this book (and Delinquents) out in the world. I'm very proud of her for querying them and so excited that the publishing houses took them on. Suzanne is such a wonderful person and she deserves all this great success!


  1. This cover is just so darn gorgeous! Like you, I reviewed her debut, but still haven't read the sequels - I need to get on that!

  2. Yay!! I've read it and it is really, REALLY good!! You'll love it! :)

  3. That's my WOW as well! Great minds, and all that.

  4. The cover is beautiful and it sounds like a good read :) I like the sort of theme of it.
