"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking the Spine to see more entries!
This week, I am waiting on two books:
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: 4.5.11
Clara’s relationship with Christian is intense from the start, and like nothing she’s ever experienced before. But what starts as devotion quickly becomes obsession, and it’s almost too late before Clara realizes how far gone Christian is—and what he’s willing to do to make her stay.
Now Clara has left the city—and Christian—behind. No one back home has any idea where she is, but she still struggles to shake off her fear. She knows Christian won’t let her go that easily, and that no matter how far she runs, it may not be far enough....
I actually have both of these books for review at the moment, but I can't read either one until I get through some other books that need to be read first. It is impossibly frustrating, because I really want to read them!
The description of Stay hits close to home for me, so I just know I have to read it. I was curious and read some reviews of Stay after I requested it, and it sounds like I am going to love it...but I have to suffer until I can finally read it.
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: 4.19.11
Every girl who has taken the test has died.
Now it's Kate's turn.
It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.
A book based on Persephone? I definitely want to read it. Add to that the words: "dark," and "tortured," used to describe Hades in the synopsis, and I am officially dying to read it. What can I say? I have a thing for dark and tortured.
