Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share the books we’re excited about. I can’t remember where I stumbled upon this book, but I found it as I was scrolling through my very long TBR list on Goodreads the other day. Here’s what I’m waiting on:
Hexed by Michelle Krys. Release date: June 10 2014 (Delacorte Press/Random House Children’s Books). I love books about witches, and this one looks really good. It’s also the start to a new series, and Michelle Krys’ debut, I believe. Here’s what the Goodreads description says:
If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?
Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.
Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.
I love stories about regular people who are thrust into extraordinary situations. I can’t wait to read this! What are you waiting on this week?
