"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
This week I'm waiting on:
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: December 6, 2011
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is.
Why I want it: I loved HALF-BLOOD, Jennifer's debut novel and first in the Covenant series, when I read it in the summer. Her characters have wit and her plot lines are exciting. I couldn't put it down. I think OBSIDIAN sounds like a different book that what we're used to these days. Not many authors are writing about aliens. I don't think the cover is the greatest, but I can live with that.
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
