Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

This week's Waiting On Wednesday book is:

The Blessed (The Blessed #1) by Tonya Hurley

Brooklyn teens Lucy, Cecelia and Agnes find themselves in the emergency room at Perpetual Help Hospital at the lowest point in their lives. Lucy, the superficial party girl; Cecelia, a drop out rock chick; and Agnes, a hopeless romantic. All rebels running from their lives and themselves, plagued by broken hearts and broken dreams. Enter Sebastian. Mysterious, compelling, seductive. He seems to bring each of them what they long for...

But in the battle for his heart, will they lose their souls?
I thought Tonya Hurley's ghostgirl series (reviews of books 1: ghostgirl, 2: Lovesick, & 3: Homecoming) was great fun ("If Edward Scissorhands and Kim (Winona Ryder's character in that movie) had a baby it would be ghostgirl.") and I've been eager to see what she came up with next.

The Blessed has a great cover and I like that it's slightly in the same vein as ghostgirl but also a new and fresh series with its own distinct characters!

Out in September from Simon & Schuster - Goodreads & Book Depo
