Waiting on Wednesday : The Redhead Edition!

"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.

This week, in honor of having dyed my hair red (!!) I've chosen two awesome looking books that I'm dying to read, both have redheads in them! :)

Tempestuous (!!!!)
by Lesley Livingston

releasing: December 21, 2010 by HarperCollins

description from publisher:

“I don’t love Sonny Flannery.”

With a single lie, seventeen-year-old Kelley manages to protect the boy she loves and send him retreating into a haven for Lost Fae hidden below New York City. If she can figure out who’s after Sonny’s magick and uncover the reason why Janus Guards are being recruited to hunt innocent Faerie, Kelley might stand a chance at getting him back…but not before she must finally confront her own Faerie powers and master them. The much-anticipated finale of Lesley Livingston’s ravishing trilogy that began with Wondrous Strange and gathered force in Darklight comes to a stormy head. Fans new and old will revel in the lush romance—and be swept away by the chaotic tempest that’s swirled Kelley and Sonny together.

My thoughts: I cannot WAIT for this book! I love this series and will hate to see it end, but this one looks like it's going to be fantastic. I went to a chat the other night with Lesley Livingston, and she graciously answered questions about her books---now I'm even more excited to read it! And, really, just look at that gorgeous cover! I think it's really cool how they've gotten the same model for every cover and Lesley says she is actually quite a huge fan of the series.

Other books in the series:
Wondrous Strange

by Courtney Allison Moulton

releasing: February 15th, 2011
by HarperCollins/Katherine Tegan Books

description from publisher:
A stunning debut with angels, romance, and a girl’s terrifying hunt to uncover the secrets of her past lives and save her soul.

Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures hunting her, killing her. But when Ellie meets Will, she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp. His attention is intense and romantic, and Ellie feels like her soul has known him for centuries. On her seventeenth birthday, on a dark street at midnight, Will awakens Ellie’s power, and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness.

Ellie’s role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls. But in order to survive the dangerous and ancient battle of the angels and the Fallen, she must also hunt for the secrets of her past lives, and for truths that may be too frightening to remember.

This debut, the first novel in a trilogy, is achingly romantic, terrifying, and filled with blistering action.

My thoughts: This one will be on my 2011 Debut Challenge list for sure! Sounds so exciting and I do love stories that involve angels, dreams, past lives, and a little romance!
