Waiting on Wednesday | Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights an upcoming book release that I'm looking forward to. This week I'm sharing with you the first book in the Everlife series,  Firstlife by Gena Showalter. This book is set to be released on February 23rd, 2016.


Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.

There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.

In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…


Why am I looking forward to Firstlife?

1.) It's a new YA series from Gena Showalter.

2.) I think that the concept is really interesting.

3.) I'd love to find out what Ten's choice will be.

You can preorder Firstlife for $9.99 on Amazon!


  1. Ooh nice pick! I LOVED Gena's YA series to date, and still mourn the loss of Intertwined, but sadly, this one just wasn't all I had hoped it to be. Still hope that you thoroughly enjoy it though!
