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. 

Jess's WoW
Kissing Shakespeare
Kissing Shakespeare
by Pamela Mingle 
Release date: August 14th, 2012



Miranda has Shakespeare in her blood: she hopes one day to become a Shakespearean actor like her famous parents. At least, she does until her disastrous performance in her school's staging of The Taming of the Shrew. Humiliated, Miranda skips the opening-night party. All she wants to do is hide. 


Fellow cast member, Stephen Langford, has other plans for Miranda. When he steps out of the backstage shadows and asks if she'd like to meet Shakespeare, Miranda thinks he's a total nutcase. But before she can object, Stephen whisks her back to 16th century England—the world Stephen's really from. He wants Miranda use her acting talents and modern-day charms on the young Will Shakespeare. Without her help, Stephen claims, the world will lost its greatest playwright. 


Miranda isn't convinced she's the girl for the job. Why would Shakespeare care about her? And just who is this infuriating time traveler, Stephen Langford? Reluctantly, she agrees to help, knowing that it's her only chance of getting back to the present and her "real" life. What Miranda doesn't bargain for is finding true love . . . with no acting required.
Donna's WoW
Deity (Covenant, #3)Deity (Convenant #3)
by Jennifer L.Armentrout
Release date: November 6th, 2012
<

History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time.


Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday—to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she’s a goner... and so is Aiden.


If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"—which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time—she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.


But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she’s caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed.


Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...

hmm.. kissing shakespear sounds like it could be very different from alot of what I read,. but in good way! my only iffy factor is the girl on the cover.. obviously I don't know how old the character is. but the girl on the cover looks way young! * personal opinion of course >.< * as for Diety.. I have half blood on my nook and REALLY need to get around to it! lol

both great WOW picks!

Petra @ Safari Poet said...

Can't wait for Deity. I'm a big fan of the Covenant series.

Kissing Shakespeare sounds good. If you're looking forward to that, you might want to check of A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont. The MC is not only transported to a different era, but to the book Jane Eyre.
