Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
With all the Harry Potter frenzy I was going through yesterday, I realized that I forgot to write my”Waiting on Wednesday” post! But, I still wanted to share my pick of the week, so please forgive my belated post! 😀
Despite the slightly weird cover, this book really does sound great. Like NC from Truly Bookish, I’m also a little skittish about “angel” books. This one sounds like it could be really great, though!
Title & Author: A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies
Genre: YA- Fantasy (Angels)
Publication Date: September 27, 2011
Description: “Skye never questioned the story of her life. Her Aunt Jo adopted her after the death of her parents when she was just a child, and together they flip through memories the way some people flip through photo albums.
She never questioned if the stories were true.
Until the night of her 17th birthday, when the arrival of two strangers intrudes on her cozy life. Polar opposites, like fire and ice, Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair, cold, and aloof. Skye has no idea what they want—only that their presence coincides with the beginning of some shockingly strange events. Events that Skye, if she dares to think it, might be responsible for causing.
High up in the mountains of Boulder, Colorado, Skye finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient battle, one that began untold millennia ago. Torn between unpredictable Asher, whom she loves, and the infuriating Devin, who she can’t stay away from, her fate is murky as a starless night. And as the secrets of her true identity are revealed, Skye realizes that her destiny may reside in the Heavens—or somewhere darker.”
Why I’m Stoked: Two angelic boys fighting over one girl?! Yes! And more please! I’m immediately intrigued by the description and can’t wait to see what becomes of Skye, Ash and Devin!
