Waiting on Wednesday {6}

11.30.2011
"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I actually have two this week. I'm not very god at choosing ;)

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Publication Date: May 1st, 2012 by HarperTeen

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.

Anna, a tender-hearted southern girl, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

A cross-country trip forces Anna and Kai to face the reality that hope and love are not options for their kind. When it's time for Anna to confront her demons, will she choose to embrace her halo or her horns?

Do I even need to explain why I want this? *-* It sounds amazing, the cover is amazing, and Wendy is an awesome person. While I know parts have probably changed a lot, I really regret not reading this when it was back up on Inkpop. I can't wait for this.

The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams
Publication Date: January 3rd, 2012 by Simon & Schuster

Seraphina’s first love made her immortal…her second might get her killed.

Incarnation is a new series that introduces a fresh mythology perfect for fans of bestselling series like The Immortals by Alyson Noel and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

After spending six hundred years on earth, Seraphina Ames has seen it all. Eternal life provides her with the world’s riches, but at a very high price: innocent lives. Centuries ago, her boyfriend, Cyrus, discovered a method of alchemy that allows them to swap bodies with other humans, jumping from one vessel to the next, taking the human’s life in the process. No longer able to bear the guilt of what she’s done, Sera escapes from Cyrus and vows to never kill again.

Then sixteen-year-old Kailey Morgan gets into a horrific car accident right in front of her, and Sera accidentally takes over her body. For the first time, Sera finds herself enjoying the life of the person she’s inhabiting—and falls for the human boy who lives next door. But Cyrus will stop at nothing until she’s his again, and every moment she stays, she’s putting herself and the people she’s grown to care for in great danger. Will Sera have to give up the one thing that’s eluded her for centuries: true love?

While this isn't something that's right up my alley, I've heard some great things about it. (And S&S novels are kind of my weakness.)

Leave a link and I'll be sure to check out what you're waiting on this Wednesday!

  14. Crazy excited for both of these!!! I LOVE the cover of Sweet Evil and seriously... can any good girl/bad boy story with a supernatural edge be bad? Okay, potentially yes, but I have high hopes for this :D

    And I love the whole alchemy thing and the idea of inhabiting bodies... plus a 600 year old protagonist? I like!
