Waiting on Wednesday: THE THORN AND THE BLOSSOM: A Two-Sided Love Story by Theodora Goss

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started and I found it on the Ravenous Reader blog. I agree it is a great idea. This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

One enchanting romance. Two lovers keeping secrets. And a uniquely crafted book that binds their stories forever.

When Evelyn Morgan walked into the village bookstore, she didn’t know she would meet the love of her life. When Brendan Thorne handed her a medieval romance, he didn’t know it would change the course of his future. It was almost as if they were the cursed lovers in the old book itself . . .

The Thorn and the Blossom is a remarkable literary artifact: You can open the book in either direction to decide whether you’ll first read Brendan’s, or Evelyn’s account of the mysterious love affair. Choose a side, read it like a regular novel—and when you get to the end, you’ll find yourself at a whole new beginning.

What an interesting premise... you have to read it twice to get the whole story :) I am intrigued.

When I first heard that there was going to be a book about a cyborg... I was a little skeptical, but after reading the synopsis I am on board baby!!

That is my WOW what is yours.

I am sorry for my lack of posting *see slackerpalosa post* but am trying to get back in to the habit.  So please bare with me.

Waiting on Wednesday: Archon: The Books of Raziel

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started and I found it on the Ravenous Reader blog. I agree it is a great idea. This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on!

.Archon: The Books of Raziel

I have to say that the cover for Archon has me very intrigued, as do the mixed reviews. It seems that you will either love it or hate it. Interesting mix of the Vatican, mental institution, and a Teen Academy. To me it sounds like a mix of House of Night & Blue Bloods. Archon has me smitten enough to made me want to read it even with the mixed reviews. 

Goodreads synopsis: 

Archon: The Books of Raziel

Angela Mathers is plagued by visions of angels, supernatural creatures who haunt her thoughts by day and seduce her dreams by night. Newly released from a mental institution where she was locked away for two years, she hopes that her time at the Vatican’s university, the West Wood Academy, will give her a chance at a normal life. Unlike ordinary humans, Angela is a blood head — a freak, a monster, the possible fulfillment of a terrifying prophecy of overwhelming death and destruction. Only in Luz, the Vatican’s wondrous enclave, are blood heads accepted and encouraged to discover what kind of powers or special abilities they might possess.

But within West Wood, a secret coven plots, and demons and angels roam the streets searching for the key to open Raziel’s book — a secret tome from a lost archangel. Some are determined to destroy Raziel, while others, like the beautiful Supernal Israfel, one of the highest of the high, wish to free him. And when the Archon — the human chosen to possess the spirit of a dead angel — rises as foretold, they will control the supernatural universe.

Torn between mortal love and angelic obsession, Angela holds the key to Heaven and Hell — and both will stop at nothing to possess her.

Hardcover, 368 pages
