Waiting on Wednesday (31 - Late)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Well, better late than never, right? I dyed my hair Tuesday and Wednesday, and this totally slipped my mind.

Okay, so, my first choice this week is


Anxious Hearts by Tucker Shaw - Release date May 1st, 2010

“Evangeline,” he repeated, calling at a whisper. “Evangeline.” He was not calling that she may hear, he was calling that somehow her soul might know that he was devoted entirely to her, only to her. “Evangeline, I will find you.”

Eva and Gabe explore the golden forest of their seaside Maine town, unknowingly tracing the footsteps of two teens, Evangeline and Gabriel, who once lived in the idyllic wooded village of Acadia more than one hundred years ago. On the day that Evangeline and Gabriel were be wed, their village was attacked and the two were separated. And now in the present, Gabe has mysteriously disappeared from Eva.

A dreamlike, loose retelling of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s famous love poem “Evangeline,” Anxious Hearts tells an epic tale of unrequited love and the hope that true love can be reunited.

Why I want it: I'm kinda a sucker for a good romance. Or a
bad one. Sorry, I couldn't resist. But anyways, I was just trying to say I love love stories. And the cover is pretty. I don't love it, but it's certainly pretty.

Illyria by Elizabeth Hand - Release date May 13th, 2010

Madeleine and Rogan are first cousins, best friends, twinned souls, each other's first love. Even within their large, disorderly family - all descendants of a famous actress - their intensity and passion for theater sets them apart. It makes them a little dangerous. When they are cast in their school's production of Twelfth Night, they are forced to face their separate talents and futures, and their future together.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I know it's a reprint, but it's being rereleased, I guess, so I'm using it. And other than the initial "EW, THEY'RE COUSINS" reaction, it sounds good!

Okay, so I still have a dozen things to do, so I'm gonna wrap this up now. Watch out for something special coming later this week!

Peace and cookies,
Laina

  4. Anxious Hearts sounds really good. And yes, my initial reaction to the second was "EW, cousins!" :] But other than that, it sounds interesting. Nice picks.
