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.

from Atheneum Books for Young Readers
Heed this warning, mortal: stay far away from the three sister Fates. For if they come to love you, they might bring about the end of the world…

Chloe is the youngest. Hers are the fingers that choose the wool, that shape the thread, that begin it. The sun smiles upon her. Men love her without knowing who she is. She has lived forever and will live forever more. She and her sisters have been on their isolated Greek island for centuries, longer than any mortal can remember. They spin, measure, and slice the countless golden threads of human life. They are the three Fates, and they have stayed separate for good reason: it is dangerous for them to become involved with the humans whose lives they shape.

So when a beautiful girl named Aglaia shows up on their doorstep, Chloe tries to make sure her sisters don’t become attached. But in seeking to protect them, Chloe discovers the dark power of Aglaia’s destiny. As her path unwinds, the three Fates find themselves pulled inextricably along—toward mortal pain, and mortal love, and a fate that could unravel the world.

My thoughts:
I loved Rebecca Hahn's debut, A Creature of Moonlight, absolutely gorgeous writing style with such a classic fairy tale feel. Now I can't wait to see her take on mythology. Plus, beautiful cover! The author tweeted about the finished cover--it has a metallic swirl effect that looks almost holographic! Check it out here!

  8. I didn't get around to reading A Creature of Moonlight, though I so wanted to, but this sounds so good! I totally didn't put the two together until you mentioned it. A story about the fates would be AWESOME.
