Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday (or WoW) is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  It's a meme occuring every Wednesday where you sign up at Breaking the Spine and then do a post about a book you are anticipating the release of. Head over to Breaking the Spine to find out more and sign up!

This week I am anticipating:
A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies
Release Date: 2011 (No Date Yet)
Published by HarperTeen

Summary: (Goodreads)
 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.

Uh...wowwowwow. This one sounds amazing. I have known about this one for more than a year, and I was so so so excited when I saw a cover for it a few weeks back! I can't wait to read this one. I believe it's a debut for 2011, too.

I hadn't heard of this one yet, love the cover and the summary though! The contrast between her hair and the rest looks great. This book will definitely be going on my 'must read' list, thanks for sharing!
