Waiting on Wednesday (88)

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


Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay - To be released September 13th, 2011

"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.


(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: Because it sounds AWESOME??????? (Also. It makes me giggle that they use the same quote as New Moon.) It just sounds incredible. And Juliet not loving Romeo? COOL!!!!


Dark of the Moon by Tracy Barrett - To be released September 19th, 2011

Ariadne is destined to become a goddess of the moon. She leads a lonely life, finding companionship only with her beloved, misshapen brother Asterion, who must be held captive below the palace for his own safety.

Then a ship arrives bearing a tribute of slaves from Athens, and Ariadne meets Theseus, the son of the king of Athens. Ariadne finds herself drawn to the newcomer, and soon they form a friendship—one that could perhaps become something more.

But Theseus is doomed to die as an offering to the minotaur, that monster beneath the palace—unless he can kill the beast first. And that "monster" is Ariadne’s brother...


(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want to read this: Goddesses!! Gods and goddesses seem to be trending lately, hey? And not just of the Greek variety.

What are you guys waiting on this week?

Peace and cookies,
Laina

  1. Please tell me that quote doesn't come along with the book, the Romeo and Juliet quote. Cause that is one of the quotes Stephenie Meyer uses for New Moon... I want to read it, but seriously, why use the same quote? :S

    I am waiting for The Sharp Time and Eden. You can go check it out if you want ^^
