Waiting on Wednesday #11 My Heart Be Damned & Crewel

Posted by Jenea in Just Talking / 29 Comments



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine  that showcases our most anticipated upcoming releases.

There are two that I am patiently waiting on this week.






My Heart Be Damned (Damned #1) by Channelle Gray

Expected publication: September 15th 2012 by Knight Romance Publishing



If you’re a Hunter, there are only three things you must know about the Damned. The Damned can’t lie, can’t live without a body, and can’t leave you alone.

Amerie Carter has the blood of a Hunter, unfortunately. She is one of a rare line of women who, upon her sixteenth birthday, will come into extraordinary powers used to hunt the Damned; escaped souls from Hell who take up residence in human bodies. It’s supposed to be her sweet sixteen, but Amerie has never dreaded a day more, and her worst fears are confirmed as the celebration turns tragic when her mother is killed.






Crewel (Crewel #1) by Gennifer Albin

Expected publication: October 16th 2012 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux 



That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.

Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.


Both of these sounds so good, that I can not wait to get my hands on them. What are you waiting on?

Happy Reading…

    Hi, there! Thank you so much for commenting on my WOW!! I LOVE your picks!! They both sound like fabulous reads, especially “Crewel”. Very fascinating stuff, and right up my alley, too. I’ve seen “Crewel” before, and just ADORE that cover!! “My Heart Be Damned” also haa a very nice cover — it’s got the perfect type of mood for the story. Now on to the good old TBR pile… Thanks for sharing these!! : )
