“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine.
My pick for this week is:
by Jessie Harrell
When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.
As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she’s come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.
Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell.
I stumbled upon Jessie Harrell’s website earlier this summer, I believe, during one of the big blog hops. The book caught my attention, as I’m usually drawn to stories based on Greek myth AND I loved C.S. Lewis’s Till We Have Faces…so I immediately added it to my TBR. There’s just something about inescapable fate that I find so fascinating, especially when you throw romance into the equation. Eagerly anticipating this one
So…..what reads are you all looking forward to?
