Waiting on Wednesday (28)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme started by Breaking the Spine.

Tomorrow is the day. Boy's surgery is at 10 on the other side of the Hudson River and I'll be here, waiting(or probably sleeping). I think I'm probably more anxious about this than he is. So, on with the books!

Torment
Lauren Kate
[September 28, 2010]

How many lives do you need to live before you find someone worth dying for? In the aftermath of what happened at Sword & Cross, Luce has been hidden away by her cursed angelic boyfriend, Daniel, in a new school filled with Nephilim, the offspring of fallen angels and humans. Daniel promises she will be safe here, protected from those who would kill her. At the school Luce discovers what the Shadows that have followed her all her life mean - and how to manipulate them to see into her other lives. Yet the more Luce learns about herself, the more she realizes that the past is her only key to unlocking her future...and that Daniel hasn't told her everything. What if his version of the past isn't actually the way things happened...what if Luce was really meant to be with someone else?

I really enjoyed Fallen, so of course I'm excited for this book!

The Healer's Apprentice
Melanie Dickenson
[October 1, 2010]

In this historical romance loosely based on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, a woodcutter's daughter becomes the town's healer's apprentice. Rose's job is to care for the sick and injured in Hagenheim Castle. But she gets sick at the sight of blood and is more suited to making up stories than sewing up wounds. She is determined to overcome her weakness and prove herself a competent healer, or she faces marrying a disgusting old merchant her mother has picked out for her.

Lord Hamlin, the future ruler of the region, is injured and Rose must overcome her squeamishness to save him. He is everything that is noble and good, but loving him is forbidden. He is already betrothed to a mysterious woman in hiding.

With two noble-born brothers vying for her affections, Rose learns that the people of Hagenheim are not always who they seem.



More Sleeping Beauty retellings! *omnomnom*

I'm going to leave it at that for now. What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I'm waiting for Torment to be released too, but mostly because I got done with Fallen and though, "what the heck is going on?" and I want to figure out what's really happening.

  5. Hmm The Healer's Apprentice sounds interesting. Was watching a Jackson Pearce livestream and we were all talking about fairy tales and re-tellings and it got me all excited so I'll have to check this book out.

    Torment I'm not waiting on but I'll check out your review when you read it :).
