Waiting On Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.
My Pick This Week:
Author: Karsten Knight
Release Date: July 26th 2011
Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.
~I can't wait for this title to come out! It sounds amazing. I love the cover and that is what first caught my attention. After reading the description I realized this is an original idea for a plot and it actually sounded really good. So soon after, I started going to the author's blog and found that he is so incredible. Not only is he hot -don't tell my hubby I said that- but he is hilarious, super smart, and talented (seriously - just check out his dancing) and if he can interpret all that into his writing style, then we will have a major hit on our hands and a hot new author to watch out for!!
