Waiting On Wednesday (1)

So I have a wishlist that's about 2 pages long - books that I've heard about and aren't released yet; books that are out but I haven't had a chance to buy or borrow get the idea.

I thought for something a little different I'd pick one I'm dying to read and showcase it here. So today's pick is...

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini!

Helen Hamilton has always tried to hide how different she is—no easy feat on an island as small as Nantucket, and only getting harder as she finds herself haunted by hallucinations and vivid nightmares.

It's not until she crosses paths with Lucas Delos at school that Helen's true heritage is finally revealed. Yet even as Lucas helps her awaken to her startling powers, they can never be together—not unless they can break free from the tragic destiny the Three Fates have in store.
(Summary from author's website)

With Greek Mythology at it's heart I've had this one on my list for a couple of weeks. Last night while browsing the HarperTeen website, I found an excerpt - 99 whole pages, almost the first 5 chapters! So I started reading, got completely immersed and then was rudely cut off right when some major action occurred! I'd forgotten I was only reading an excerpt. I screamed. So now, rather than only being intrigued, I'm dying to read it!

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini will be released 31st May 2011.


  1. I have this one coming up on my TBR soon! It looks so good!
    I love your layout by the way! So pretty :)

    BTW, just in case you didn't realize, there is a meme like this if you were interested in doing it with lots of people and networking. It's Wednesdays, called WOW (Waiting on Wednesdays). It's hosted at

    Anyway, I really like your blog and I'm your newest follower!

  2. Trust me, Dave, I'll be breaking my book buying ban as soon as it's released! ;-)

  3. Thanks so much, Angela! I think I'll definitely start taking part in the WoW meme - I certainly have enough books that I'm desperately waiting for! ;-)

    Thank you for following, I really appreciate it! And for your comments about my layout! I'm not really in the know about how to do all this, so it's been a bit of an experiment! I'm pretty happy with it, though. :-D
