Waiting on Wednesday (#2): Dreaming Awake by Gwen Hayes

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's eagerly anticipated release is:

Dreaming Awake (Falling Under #2)
by Gwen Hayes
Expected publication: January 3rd 2012 by NAL Trade

She fell for him in a nighttime world. But the time for dreaming is past—and the here-and-now can be just as fragile their love…
When Theia Alderson first encountered a mysterious, handsome boy in her dreams, she never imagined how finding Haden Black—and falling in love—could change her life. To save Haden, Theia sacrificed everything. And the dangerous bargain she made could have lasting repercussions.
Now Theia has returned to Serendipity Falls, and she finds herself struggling with the same deadly hungers that have tortured Haden. When students at their high school fall prey to a mysterious illness, Theia can’t help but wonder if Haden’s control is slipping—and how much longer she’ll have a grip on her own.
And still the nightmare realm of Under won’t let them go. Someone from Haden’s past is determined to destroy Theia from the inside out, starting with those closest to her, forcing Theia to choose between family and friends and a love that may have been doomed from the start…
After reading Falling Under, I was really wondering how things would work out for Theia after her deal with Haden's mother, her eventual escape from Under, and the repercussions of returning home. I can't wait to finally find out what's been happening with Theia and Haden and their struggle for control. And then there's still someone trying to keep them apart. I love that whole star-crossed lovers thing. And then you have the heroine's difficult decision between choosing her family/friends and the one she loves. I can't wait to see what Theia decides.


  1. I am dying to read this book also! I can't wait to see how things will play out. I really enjoyed Falling Under - a lot more than I though I would - so this is definitely a book I am waiting on too.

    Thanks for visiting my WOW earlier. :)

  2. I haven't read the first one in the series, but they both look good to me!

  3. I still need to read book one! It sounded so good. Great pick! :) Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Great pick! I love this cover. Mostly because I REALLY want her dress.

  5. I still have to read book 1. I've heard really good things about it and suspect I'll be pining for this one day too.

    My WOW

  6. Great pick! I loved Falling Under. I can't wait for this one, especially w/the change in Thea at the end of Falling Under.
    Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog!

  7. I have to say, I didn't read the first one, though I heard great things about it. This cover really catches my eye--I like that it follows the same design type as the first. Great pick!

  8. Ohh, I liked the first one and am looking forward to this one, too! Great pick.
