Waiting on Wednesday: Fantasy Goodness Edition

Hosted at Breaking the Spine and original picture credits go to ハツ子


Hi everyone! How's your Wednesday so far? :) I've been spending the past couple of days on a new look for my blog. I decided to ditch the galaxy theme (for now, anyways) and go for a more simple, clean (cutesy ANIME) feel. Anybody detest the changes? Love it? Feel free to send me all of your (not too mean) hate/love in the comments! ♥

This week I'm waiting on:

The Dark Light by Sara Walsh


Mia is torn between two guys—and two worlds—in this epic, romantic fantasy. Mysterious lights have flickered above Crownsville for as long as Mia can remember. And as far as she’s concerned, that’s about the only interesting thing to happen in her small town.

That is, until Sol arrives. Mia’s not one to fall for just any guy, but she can’t get Sol—or the brilliant tattoo on his back—out of her mind.

Then Mia’s brother goes missing, and Mia’s convinced that Sol knows more than he’s sharing. But getting closer to Sol means reevaluating everything Mia once believed to be true. Because Sol’s not who Mia thought he was—and neither is she.

REACTION: 

LOLWUT? Is it just me or does this cover SCREAM paranormal romance? Still, I love my fantasy anyways even if their cover looks EXTREMELY deceiving. Besides, I've yet to read some steamy fantasy so this sounds puuurrty fiiiine to me.

Poison by Bridget Zinn


Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart… misses.

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

REACTION: 

More fantasy YAAAY! And swooning elements, eh? I'm intrigued. I might have to bump this up on my TBR pile, even though it has yet to be published until March 2013. (SADNESS.)

 Hey, Poison, COME AT ME BRO. (But really? FRED? FRED? WHY THAT NAME WHY)

Definitely looking forward to both of these, although perhaps Poison more, because of The Dark Light's romance novel cover. I do like how serious the girl looks though!

My WoW.
