WoW

WoW stands for Waiting on Wednesday, and is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It's a weekly meme hosted every Wednesday, where you sign up at Breaking the Spine and then do a post about a book you want to read, or a book you're anticipating the release of. Head over to Breaking the Spine for more information and sign up!

My WoW of the week is:

                                                        Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
                                                 Comes out May 31st 2011 from Harperteen!
                                                          Summary: (From Goodreads)
                                                         
How do you defy destiny?
Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.
As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

Oooh! Greek Mythology is involved in this one......It's apparentely like a Percy Jackson for teen girls! Awesome, right?
