Waiting on Wednesday {13}

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

Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer
Expected publication: February 14th 2012 by Balzer + Bray

To Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Mafia families and its reputation for murder and intrigue, is just that—exotic and wholly unknown. But when her life in Brooklyn begins to fall apart, she must travel there, to her family’s ancestral home, where centuries of family secrets await her.

Once there, Rosa falls head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose handsome looks and savage grace both fascinate and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and her aunt and sister believe Alessandro is only using Rosa to infiltrate the Alcantara clan. And when Rosa encounters a tiger one night—a tiger with very familiar eyes—she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem.

Hidden caves, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a history of familial bloodlust mean that Rosa can’t trust anyone. Torn between loyalty to her family and love for their mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love…or run as far and as fast as she can.

This sounds creepy and original, and while the cover freaks me the heck out, I can't wait for this :)

Wrecked by Anna Davies
Expected publication: May 1st 2012 by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing

Miranda has lived on Whym Island since the death of her parents. She has taken comfort in its seclusion and in the folklore that claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and its surrounding waters. It's just been easier to believe that things are out of her control.

But when a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy that haunts her dreams. As the guilt of the accident consumes her, she finds refuge in her late night swims. Then, she meets Christian, a boy who seems so familiar, but won't tell her where he is from and why they can only meet at the beach. As Miranda falls for Christian and begins to put the accident behind her, she discovers that there are secrets that Christian is keeping to protect her that may only end up bringing her nothing but harm.


Someone I work with at the bookstore is going to get a chance to read it because her sister got it at ALA, but she'll be sending it right back to her sister *sadface*

I don't read enough books involving water - whether they be mermaids or evil sea creatures. This book sounds mysterious and the cover is gorgeous :) It's going to be a long wait until May!


Leave a link to your WoW and I'll stop by!

  1. You do realize it's not Wednesday yet, right? :P

    Anyways, I SECOND BOTH OF THESE CHOICES. Especially Wrecked.

    Also creepy snake or not I think the Arcadia Awakens cover is gorgeous.

  9. I like the sound of Arcadia Awakens and the fact that the author is a man since most of the books I've read are by woman and would like to see if I'll sense a difference.

    Wrecked sounds great as well.
