This week's want to read now title is...
Destined by Jessie Harrell!
When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.
As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.
Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell. (summary from Goodreads)
I've been on a Greek mythology kick lately, and so I'm really loving the sounds of this one! I'm fascinated by the Psyche & Cupid myth, especially as it is believed to have inspired The Beauty and the Beast stories - and I do love those!
Jessie Harrell's Destined is due for release on 17 November 2011!
