Waiting on Wednesday 8-8-12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.

I didn't do a Waiting on Wednesday post last week because I already had too many posts scheduled, but this week I am back and I have two books that I am really looking forward to both from Spencer Hill Press. Touch of Death by Kelly Hashway and Perfection by J.L. Spelbring.

Overview

Jodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s being stalked by some guy no one seems to know.

After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins.

Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power, history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct.


This sounds awesome right?! I know that I am super excited for this. Besides the fact that it sounds really awesome, how freaking beautiful is that cover?

Overview

The personification of Aryan purity, Ellyssa's spent her whole life under her creator's strict training and guidance; her purpose is to eradicate inferior beings. She was genetically engineered to be the perfect soldier: strong, intelligent, unemotional, and telepathic.

Only Ellyssa isn't perfect.

Ellyssa feels emotions--a fact she's spent her life concealing. Until she encounters the epitome of inferiority: a dark-haired boy raised among renegades hiding since the Nazis won the war a century ago. He speaks to her telepathically, pushing thoughts into her mind, despite the impossibility of such a substandard person having psychic abilities.

But he does.

His unspoken words and visions of a place she's never visited make Ellyssa question her creator. Confused and afraid her secret will be discovered, Ellyssa runs away, embarking on a journey where she discovers there is more to her than perfection.


I love this cover too!! And doesn't it sound like it's going to be pretty amazing? Umm yeah, Spencer Hill Press pretty much rocks and they have tons of awesome books coming out. These are just two of the ones that I am dying to read.  

So what books are you waiting on? What is making you go stir crazy because you want to read it so badly? (I know, so dramatic lol!) I want to know. Leave me a link and I will hop over to your blog.

  13. Ooh, both of these look really great!! Both sound super unique. I can't believe I haven't heard of them before! The second one sounds slightly better then the first, in my opinion, but I think the first will have some really intriguing mythology, which I always love. I'm definitely going to be adding these to my TBR! Fabulous picks Amy! <3
