Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday each participant will choose a book that they are "waiting on" or haven't released yet. 
This week I'm waiting for angels:

The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush!

Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.
The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?
I'm certainly in love with the cover.  This is the sequel, as said above, to Hush, Hush.  I read the novel last year and it was fantastic.  I was in love with that cover as well; that's probably why I ended up buying the book in the first place.  I remember being late for something and I didn't have time to read what it was about, but the book cover caught me right away.  I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover.  But with a cover like that, a falling angel, it's hard not to.
I simply can't wait for Crescendo.

So, what are you waiting for?
