Waiting on Wednesday- Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?

Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life."- summary from GoodReads

I chose this book because of several reasons, one of which is the fact that the author is a fellow Virginian! She'll be doing some local VA events which I'm really excited for. Aside from that, it just sounds AMAZING and hopefully will have some good world-building once I get to read it. This book comes out January 31, 2012 from HarperTeen.

This is just one of many early 2012 releases I'm looking forward to! What are you guys looking forward to?
