Waiting On Wednesday (#2)

WoW is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. WoW is weekly meme, where you post about the books your eagerly looking forward to.

The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter 
April 19th 2011
From Goodreads:
Every girl who has taken the test has died.

Now it's Kate's turn.

It's always been just Kate and her mom--and now her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.

Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

If she fails...

Found out about this book from others WoW last week! I absolutely can't wait for it to come out. Its almost April, so the wait shouldn't be too long. I also, absolutely adore the cover. The colors, the font and texture is just amazing. Def. a best cover for 2011!!

The Fallen: Raziel by Kristina Douglas
Already Released
From Goodreads:
She was just an ordinary mortal . . .

You’re dead” is so not what Allie Watson wants to hear. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like the dark, angelically handsome man who ferried her to this strange, hidden land. The last thing she remembers is stepping off a curb in front of a crosstown bus. Now she’s surrounded by gorgeous fallen angels with an unsettling taste for blood—and they really don’t want her around. Not exactly how she pictured heaven.

. . . until death catapulted her into a seductive world she never imagined.

Raziel is unsure why he rescued Allie from hellfire against Uriel’s orders, but she stirs in him a longing he hasn't felt in centuries. Now the Fallen are bracing for the divine wrath brought by his disobedience, and they blame Allie for the ferocious Nephilim clawing at the kingdom’s shrouded gates. Facing impossible odds at every turn, the two must work together to survive. Raziel will do anything to defend his spirited lover against the forces of darkness—because Allie may be the Fallen’s only salvation.

I can't wait for this one. I'm already on the waiting list at the library but I believe they just ordered the book, so no telling when the book will actually come in. So that counts as waiting. 

I'm not going to lie, I don't like the cover. It's the stance the guy is in, I hate it. Other than his stance, his abs and pecks are nice. Oh I just looked closer, I can see his veins, that always kinda creeps me out.

Time to see what others are waiting for.

The Goddess Test is fantastic, there's a review up on my blog. Great pick!

The Goddess Test looks absolutely wonderful! I'll have to go and pre-order it... I don't know if it was the Percy Jackson series that triggered it but a lot of Greek mythology based stories have been cropping up recently. Anyways, you won't hear me complaining! The cover is gorgeous.

The other one... not so much. I like the overall concept of it but he looks like he's advertising for a gym or something. Yeah, a little too creepy for me - wouldn't want that staring at me from my bookshelf. The actual book seems good though! I'll add it to my to-be-read list.
