Waiting On Wednesday

WOW is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine

Book: Ripple
Author: Mandy Hubbard
Release date: August 2011
Eighteen year old Lexi is cursed--by day, she's just like every other teen at Lincoln CIty High. But from dusk until dawn, she's forced to swim and sing, a modern day siren. At sixteen, her voice became a deadly lure, and Steven-- the only boy she's ever loved-- followed her straight into the story surf and drowned.

Now, Lexi spends her nights at a forgotten lake up in the mountains, where she can swim and sing in peace. She's become an ice queen, forced to keep everyone around her at arm's length in order to protect them.

That is, until Cole comes to town. Cole, with his dark good looks and prying questions. She can't seem to keep him away, and she's no longer sure she wants to. But how can she let him in when it can only end in his death?

Loving this summary + cover (I'm kinda wanting that dress...I like the color! Plus the background of the cover is just beautiful, the colors are stunning), and I'm definitely up for a siren story. If only it were August 2011...

What are you guys waiting on?

  1. Ooh, great pick! I've never heard of this book before, but that stunning cover alone makes me want to read it. And then you add in that summary...wow. This'll probably become a WoW pick for me soon!

    This week, though, I'm waiting on Rachel Caine's GHOST TOWN, because I love her MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES series so much: http://besidenormal.blogspot.com/2010/09/waiting-on-wednesday-ghost-town.html

  3. great pick Lea! I'm going to add it to the watch list :) I'm not too keen on cover, at first (quick) glance it reminded me of a cheesey Harlequin romance book & I was wondering what WOW you had picked ROFL. The colors are pretty though, have to give it that.
