Waiting on Wednesday (222)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"Poison Princess"

by Kresley Cole
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Release Date: Oct 2, 2013

The following description is from goodreads.com:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces The Arcana Chronicles, post-apocalyptic tales filled with riveting action, the dark mysticism of Tarot cards, and breathtaking romance.She could save the world—or destroy it.

Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.

But she can’t do either alone.

With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?

Who can Evie trust?

As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side…
Since Kresley Cole has written historical romances, she's already an author on my radar. I'd love to see what she does with YA. Poison Princess is just too cool of a title, too, I love it. My only question is, is her love interest way older than her? He looks way too old for YA in my opinion, what do you think?

What are you waiting for this week???

  10. I do like Cole's adult books :D

  13. He does look too old for YA. Ah, well! It's a gorgeous cover, anyway. :)

    Nope, he looks way old.

  15. I can't wait for this either! Kresley Cole is an amazing writer and I'm sure she'll be great at YA too. Thanks for sharing!

  16. You're right... fantastic title. Plus, who doesn't love a bad boy?

  17. This sounds so. good. I've never read anything by Kresley Cole but I would gladly start off with this novel! :) I love the bit in the summary about not knowing which side everyone will fall on... Sounds like a pretty legitimate concern! Great pick this week, Carrie! <3


  18. This is a new one to me, but it looks good. I'm off to add it to my list. Great pick!
