Waiting on Wednesday (68)

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

Let's play guess the theme!

Falling Under by Gwen Hayes - To be released March 1st, 2011

Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she's seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.

As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.

And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: Dreams. Souls. CAY-OOT BOY. Plus a gorgeous cover. Seriously, look at that girl's hair. It's so curly and pretty and want.

Next up is:

Chime by Franny Billingsley - To be released March 17th, 2011

Before Briony's stepmother died, she made sure Briony blamed herself for all the family's hardships. Now Briony has worn her guilt for so long it's become a second skin. She often escapes to the swamp, where she tells stories to the Old Ones, the spirits who haunt the marshes. But only witches can see the Old Ones, and in her village, witches are sentenced to death. Briony lives in fear her secret will be found out, even as she believes she deserves the worst kind of punishment.

Then Eldric comes along with his golden lion eyes and mane of tawny hair. He's as natural as the sun, and treats her as if she's extraordinary. And everything starts to change. As many secrets as Briony has been holding, there are secrets even she doesn't know.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: Besides the obvious, cayoot boy, gorgeous cover, ect, I think the whole stepmother thing would be very interesting, and that Briony would be a very interesting character.

Okay, so time to guess. What was the theme?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
