Waiting on Wednesday (58)

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

Another themed WoW!! What, you don't believe me? Just watch.

Kindred by Tammar Stein - To be released February 8th, 2011

The first time I meet an angel, it is Raphael and I am eighteen.

Miriam is an unassuming college freshman stuck on campus after her spring break plans fall through. She's not a religious girl--when pressed she admits reluctantly to believing in a higher power. Truth be told, she's about as comfortable speaking about her faith as she is about her love life, which is to say, not at all. And then the archangel Raphael pays Miriam a visit, and she finds herself on a desperate mission to save two of her contemporaries. To top it all off, her twin brother, Mo, has also had a visitation, but from the opposite end of the good-evil spectrum, which leaves Miriam to wonder--has she been blessed and her brother cursed or vice versa? And what is the real purpose behind her mission?

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I'll admit to not being totally in love with the cover of this. Mostly because I can't help thinking, "How did the shirt go over the wings?" But I think it sounds really, really good.

A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford - To be released February 22nd, 2010

Eden didn’t expect Az.

Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.


So long happily-ever-after.

Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.

She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else’s game. Her heart is her own.

And that’s only the beginning of the end.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I really, really like this cover. Sharp images with a lot of contrast really appeal to me so I love this one, from the pink in her hair to her pale skin to those cool blue eyes.

(See, they totally match!)
