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.
Hexed  
by Michelle Krys
hitting shelves June 10th, 2014 from Delacorte
description: If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?

Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.

Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.
My thoughts: This looks like a fun one.  As much as love a super creepy, eerie tale, I also love a book that gives me a main character with some fun wit and attitude (think Hex Hall or Ghost and the Goth, two of my favorites!).  This sounds like it has that same fun feel to it, and I can't wait to read it.

  1. Oh my God this sounds awesome! I saw the cover first and wasn't sure what to expect, then Iw as reading the blurb about Pom Poms and cheerleading and I was confused as it didn't fit.
    But then at the end it got full circle and now, I am super intruiged!
