Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

hitting shelves October 16th, 2012 from Entangled Publishing

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek.

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed--arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know--especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

My thoughts: This is one of those books that I read the synopsis of long ago and my mind was immediately alight with thoughts of.."WOW this sounds good. Wonder what the cover will look like?" and "What the heck is creepy guy doing floating above her bed??" and "Oooo, Aliens!" Yes, this one caught my attention, even before the awesome cover was released. And it IS awesome--Entangled Pub seems to have a knack for cool covers. :) This is one is no exception---and perfectly conveys that this will be an epic battle for the earth. Very excited!

  5. If no one starts to explain to me why it says Don't Ever Peek and why the protagonist doing that was a huge mistake, I'll start crying. XD

  16. I haven't seen this one before and I'll have to admit that I'm not too drawn to that summary. Probably because I felt like it was a bad way to do a short summary. I usually like very little information but it saying something to allure me and that didn't really do it for me. But it's now on my radar and I'll keep a close eye for it. Maybe I'll see your review about it soon. :D
