Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a daily meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It highlights what newly released books us bloggers are most excited to read. 
Title: The Siren 
Author: Kiera Cass
Synopsis (via Goodreads): A girl with a secret. The boy of her dreams. An Ocean between them. Years ago, Kahlen was rescued from drowning by the Ocean. To repay her debt, she has served as a Siren ever since, using her voice to lure countless strangers to their deaths. Though a single word from Kahlen can kill, she can’t resist spending her days on land, watching ordinary people and longing for the day when she will be able to speak and laugh and live freely among them again. Kahlen is resigned to finishing her sentence in solitude...until she meets Akinli. Handsome, caring, and kind, Akinli is everything Kahlen ever dreamed of. Falling in love with a human breaks the Ocean’s rules. But for the first time in a lifetime of following the rules, Kahlen is determined to follow her heart.
My Thoughts: First thing that got my attention was this cover - it's absolutely gorgeous!  Then, I read the synopsis and HELLO... MERMAIDS.  Well, Sirens, but they're like the same thing. 

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I read this one awhile back (it was originally published independently) and LOVED it! I'm very nervous about how much they could have changed, but I'm really glad that more people will get to read it now! Great pick! :)

  2. Have you read the Selection Series? It's by the same author and it's kind of a guilty pleasure read, but quite engrossing.
