Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine. On Wednesdays we get to talk about what books we are looking forward too ( and wish were releasing sooner). This week I am featuring a book called Ripple by Mandy Hubbard. Here is a summary from Goodreads.com:
Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn’t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love—again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.
Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgment, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldn’t. But when she’s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.
In Ripple, Mandy Hubbard spins a sea-ravaged tale of melancholy beauty, and the choices one girl makes between land and waves, love and freedom, her future—and her heart.
I think it sounds sweet! I love stories from the point of the supernatural characters instead of the humans, I always think they are a little more interesting that way. I also like the idea of sirens, I think they are such an interesting creature and I can’t wait to hear how they are in this world. Plus, hello gorgeous cover! Is it not awesome? Well, July 21st, 2011 seems like a long way off right now, but I hope the time will pass quickly. So what are you looking forward to this week?
