Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spines. This is a cool way to spotlight a upcoming release that you're anxious about, as well as checking out what other book lovers are anticipating as well. So, check out my WoW this week:
by Saundra Mitchell
Expected publication: February 4th 2014
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Synopsis via Goodreads:
When Willa Dixon’s brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on the deck again. With her family suffering, she’ll do anything to help out—even visiting the Grey Man.
Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn’t a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls.
Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?
Hidden (Avena #1)
by Marianne Curley
Expected publication: June 25th 2013
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Synopsis via Goodreads:
For as long as Ebony can remember, she's been sheltered. Confined to her home in a secluded valley, home-schooled by her protective parents, and limited to a small circle of close friends. It's as if she's being hidden. But something is changing in Ebony. Something that can't be concealed. She's growing more beautiful by the day, she's freakishly strong, and then there's the fact that she's glowing.
On one fateful night, Ebony meets Jordan and she's intensely drawn to him. It's as if something explodes inside of her--something that can be seen from the heavens. Ebony still doesn't know that she's a stolen angel, but now that the heavens have found her, they want her back.
I love the covers of both books. I feel so intrigued and lured in. If that's not reason enough to be waiting on them then I don't know what is. Because I'm itching badly to get my hands on a copy; even ebooks would do :)
What are you waiting on?
I had no idea Saundra Mitchell's new book had its cover revealed! I agree with you, the cover is so gorgeous. The premise sounds kind of spooky and magical at the same time-- I'm intrigued! And I've had my eye on Hidden for awhile now. I hope you get your hands on these soon, great picks! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for coming by! :)Delete
