Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
On one hand, the blurb makes my head scream NO NO ASHLEIGH DON'T DO IT THAT BLURB IS SENDING UP LOTS OF RED FLAGS! On the other hand, blurbs can lie. The blurb for Unearthly by Cynthia Hand put me off, but it turned out the blurb made it sound worse than it was because I loved Unnearthly. On another hand (you know, the one I'm borrowing from someone else), it's an angel book. I've read seven angel books so far and only one of them was good (the aforementioned Unearthly).
Then I told myself to shut up and take a risk. It sounds like fun and every now and then, I need to take a risk on a book. Sometimes, I have to go for the books that sound like I might not like them. I can't go on reading books with safe-bet blurbs forever, can I? (Not to mention it's hard finding safe-bet blurbs. Love triangles put me off a little and almost every books has those in the blurb lately.)
