Thank you to The Book Queen for Lusting for Covers meme!
Last week I picked a paranormal romance with a yummy hunk cover but this week I’ve picked the other type of cover that often appeals to me. A fantasy style cover! Yes. I really am I geek and I love to read sci-fi and fantasy fiction.
When We Wake by Karen Healey will be out on March 5th and I plan to get it. Take a look at that cover! *points down* I love the frosty colors and the frosty girl. I want to know more about her. The book is a futuristic young adult story and I really, really want to know how Tegan deals her the unique situation.

My name is Tegan Oglietti, and on the last day of my first lifetime, I was so, so happy. Sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl living in 2027–she’s happiest when playing the guitar, she’s falling in love for the first time, and she’s joining her friends to protest the wrongs of the world: environmental collapse, social discrimination, and political injustice. But on what should have been the best day of Tegan’s life, she dies–and wakes up a hundred years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened. Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryonically frozen and successfully revived, which makes her an instant celebrity–even though all she wants to do is try to rebuild some semblance of a normal life. But the future isn’t all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better future? Award-winning author Karen Healey has created a haunting, cautionary tale of an inspiring protagonist living in a not-so-distant future that could easily be our own.
