Waiting on Wednesday 22

Oh my! I think I've participated for three weeks in a row now. Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme invented by Jill at BreakingTheSpine to showcase the titles we are eagerly awaiting the release of. Visit her blog to link up your own WoW post and check out what others are waiting for.

Here is my WoW-

Title: Cursed

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release Day: September 28th, 2012

Summary: (goodreads) Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.

Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?

But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she’s not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.

My Thoughts: For one, I am enthralled by the font and color scheme and just overall awesome cover. The story itself sounds very reminiscent of Midas, but worse. I want to see how the characters deal with this ability and possibly regret of being saved? Looks really cool.

  2. Ha! Woohoo! It sounds great, so I am glad more people chose it. I don't think I've read anything else by her, so this would be my first of her novels. I am really looking forward to how this story develops. Exciting!


What did you think? :D
