Waiting on Wed: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins




"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm eagerly anticipating this book-

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Publication Date: May 1, 2012

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being
bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen
angels in Sweet Evil.

Anna, a tender-hearted southern girl, was born with the sixth
sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of
a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger,
but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring
Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her
will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned
you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

A cross-country trip forces Anna and Kai to face the reality
that hope and love are not options for their kind. When it's
time for Anna to confront her demons, will she choose to embrace
her halo or her horns?

Why I want this:
What is it with these covers that capture my attention right away? I mean I don't even read the synopsis before wanting to read it. Is that weird? I guess in a way that's their job to catch our attention and make us want them. At least that's a tweet I got from Author, Mary Lindsey, of Shattered Souls when I sent a tweet saying that Shattered Souls was taunting me with it's cover wanting me to read it. (I finally did and loved it). Off topic I know. Seriously, this cover is beautiful it has the mixture of light and dark. The girl being in the light part of the cover and then the guy a bit darker in the darker part of the cover. It makes you wonder. Yes, it's another angel book, but there's just something about angels, fallen or otherwise, that keeps me wanting to read them. Maybe, I'm trying to find one I absolutely love. (Note: I haven't read many. I think I've read a few. Personal Demons which has Gabe, A Touch Mortal, and Halo. That's it. I haven't read Unearthly. I actually need to go out and buy that one, or the Fallen books which I'm hesitant to read because the reviews are so mixed and I don't want to be let down.) Then I read the synopsis. I love the very last line "When it's
time for Anna to confront her demons, will she choose to embrace her halo or her horns?"

Now that I rambled on tell me what are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Ps. I actually found this book through another Author, D.J DeSmyter, of Hunted. He revealed the cover on his site.

  4. I think all the books where there's a girl in a red dress draws your attention straight away. It's like a compulsion to read. I'm not sure if I'm really into the whole angel things but I'll wait for you review :)
