Waiting on Wednesday, #53

Waiting on Wednsday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the SpineWOW spotlights upcoming releases that you are dying to read and can't wait to get your hands on!

Starling, by Lesley Livingston
(Starling, #1)
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: August 28, 2012
Buy: Amazon
"Love is just the beginning... of the end."
Mason Starling is a champion fencer for Gosforth Academy, but she’s never had to fight for her life. Until now. When a ferocious storm rips through Manhattan and unleashes terrifying creatures onto Gosforth’s campus, Mason barely escapes alive. Without help from the mysterious stranger who appeared in the midst of the storm, she might not have made it at all. But now, in the aftermath, Mason’s life begins to spin dramatically, mystically out of control, and the only one who seems able to help her is the stranger who can remember nothing but his name: Fennrys Wolf.
As Mason and Fenn uncover more about Fenn’s past and the strange events that surround them, they realize that Mason’s family — and its dark allegiance to the ancient Norse gods — is at the center of everything. A predetermined fate seems to be closing in on Mason, but is it possible to change one’s destiny?
Readers who fell in love with Lesley Livingston’s Wondrous Strange trilogy and those who love Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series will be captivated by the sweeping romance and pulse-pounding action of Starling.
Why Do I Want It? Look at that freaking cover! It's gorgeous. Even if the story didn't interest me, I'd probably still get this book just to have the pretty cover on my shelf. BUT good thing it DOES interest me. It sounds freaking amazing. Sounds more than amazing. I need it. Now!

Sadly, I haven't read anything by Lesley yet. *Gasp* I know, crazy, right? I've been meaning to. I promise. I've had her Wondrous Strange series on my TBR list FOREVER and haven't had the chance to get to them yet. I'm bad. But I really hope to get on that ASAP. I think I need to set a goal. I can't read this book UNTIL I finish her other books out before this. This will be my reward. =D But I need it NOW.

What are you waiting for? Is this book on your waiting list too?


  1. I've never heard of this one but it sounds really interesting and it releases in just a few short days!

    WoW Pick

  2. You should definitely read the Wondrous Strange trilogy-my favorite faerie story and the reason why I am excited to try her new book!

    1. I've been DYING to read them, but just haven't had the chance to! I'll definitely have to check them out soon though.

  3. Don't hit me, but I've honestly never heard of any books by Lesley instead of this one... D: But I am so excited to read this! I've already got it on hold at the library and it's not even out yet! :D Great pick :)

    My WoW

    1. *hits you* Joking. :P Don't worry, I haven't read anything by Lesley yet. I've had her books on my list for SO long though. Really need to get on that. I think I should make myself read her Wondrous Strange series first before I'm allowed to read this one. lol

  4. Great pick! This would be my first book from her and I really want to have a copy of it :)
