"Waiting on" Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Even though it's a weekly event, I post my entries biweekly.
This week we have:
- Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies #2) by Tarryn Fisher
- Neverfall (Everneath #1.5) by Brodi Ashton
Title: Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies #2)
Author: Tarryn Fisher
Release Date: December 28th 2012

Why? I read the first book "The Opportunist" earlier this year and was impressed by how effortlessly Tarryn created Olivia as a very flawed protagonist who was trying to redeem herself by walking down a very wrong path. I couldn't help but root for her, but at the same time I was crazy furious with her. That book just blew my brains out and totally effed up my mind for a second. Her opponent Leah, on the other hand, I absolutely hated. Hated with pure passion. I just loved to hate her. She was one nasty bitch and this is her side of the story. It's a follow up to the previous book and I'm looking forward to getting to know her and see if I can root for her as well. Probably not, but paint me intrigued.
Title: Neverfall (Everneath #1.5)
Author: Brodi Ashton
Release Date: December 26th 2012

Why? Everneath was an incredible retelling of Persephone and Hades and if you've followed my blog for a while now, you're probably aware that I'm a huge fan of everything mythology and fairy tales, whether it's a re-telling or an original story. I just love love love 'em. Everneath was definitely original and the characters were amazing! I was team Jack while reading it, but when Brodi showed us Cole's vulnerability, he kind of grew on me and some part of me wished Nikki would go with him and be his queen. I'm really anxious to see his thoughts on Nikki and Everneath and get to know him a little better. Plus the cover is freaking gorgeous! Gimme-gimme!!
