Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick this week is:
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Release Date: May 31st 2011
from Goodreads:
How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. I've been waiting to read this one as well! thank goodness its only two weeks away! Nice Wow :)

  2. This sounds epic - I love books where the characters have to struggle against "destiny", "fate", "[insert force of choice]".

  3. I'm reading it right now. It's original which is hard to find recently.

  4. Great pick! This is definitely on my to-read list.
