Waiting on Wednesday (#24)

 
"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
Cursed 
by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Release date: September 18th, 2012
<

Dying sucks--and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she’s not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.

Jess's Thoughts: Love Jennifer, love her books, love this cover. Totally excited about this. I believe Donna and some other devoted JLA fans have already read this, but I can wait...I'm sure it'll be worth it!

Rise (Eve, #3) Rise (Eve #3)
by Anna Carey
Release date: April 2nd, 2013
<
The fate of The New America rests with Eve in this stunning finale to the Eve trilogy.
< Eve is trapped in the City of Sand, married to a man of her father’s choosing, but she can’t forget her love for Caleb—or her passion for the rebel cause. When rebel armies invade the city, Eve uses her position as princess for the ultimate act of rebellion—to kill her father, the king. Then tragedy strikes, and Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight in this final battle for freedom.
<
Donna's thoughts: I can not wait for Rise. I only started this series the weekend but I already love it. It's weird because I always used to turn away from Dystopia books but lately the more I read, the more I love them and the series Eve is a prime example of that. I love the covers too. I have all my books on Kindle but I'm contemplating whether to get them on hard cover, just for the cover alone. Anyway, April 2013 can't come quick enough for me.

Wow, both of you picked lovely books, I'm excited about both! I love the cover of Cursed, and the premise sounds really good. I like the blue of the Rise cover too, but I haven't read Once yet - I should read it soon ...

Great choices! :D I haven't read any books by Jennifer Armentrout, I've seen some pretty good things about it. I can't wait to read Rise as well. Once was fantastic, and I'm curious about where Anna Carey is gonna take Eve's story.
