“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what I’m waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Author: Kiersten White
♡ Release Date: September 10, 2013 (North America)
♡ Publisher: HarperTeen
♡ Synopsis: Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.
Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.
Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.
♡ Why?: White really impressed me with “Mind Games”, and while I’m waiting on the next installment for that, I’m pretty excited about this new effort. Sounds like a fun new twist on the paranormal within YA (as well as myths being retold) so this should be interesting. I seriously can’t wait to read this one! Also, that cover.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday (one day late)?
