Waiting on Wednesday: Green-Eyed 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.

A few weeks ago we had the Red-head addition, this week it's the green-eyes :) Green eyes seem to be fairly common in the paranormal set...Lena from Beautiful Darkness, Kelley from Wondrous Strange, and the creepy little sister from Bad Girls Don't Die whose eyes turned from blue to green when she was possessed...just to name a few! Here are few Green-Eye covers that I'm looking forward to!! :)

The Thirteenth Chime
by Emma Michaels

release date: August 13th, 2010 by Bokheim Publishing
(that's next week! yay!!)

description from goodreads:
No one knew of its existence until it was removed from the attic upstairs.

In a beautiful house that overlooks the sea, an antique clock has the power to change the course of their lives.

The power the clock resonates will not only force Destiny and ex-boyfriend David on a journey into the depths of one man's mind long dead, but into the mind of a man filled with hatred and bent on revenge.

With the only clues to the nature of the clock having disappeared into the sea, Destiny and David must retrace the steps the man had taken into the darkness, before they fall prey to the trap he had set in motion over half a century ago.

Hatred never dies.

My thoughts: The cover of this book is awesome, I love the clock face inside the shocked-looking eye. It sounds like a creepy, unusual premise and its also penned by a fellow book blogger! Congrats to Emma! Nice touch having the book release on Friday the Thirteenth, too! :)

Through Her Eyes
by Jennifer Archer

release date: April 1st, 2011 by HarperTeen

description from HarperCollins Catalog:
The last thing Tansy wants to do is move with her family to middle-of-nowhere Texas. But once there, she is immediately drawn into her new home’s disturbing history. Through the lens of her camera, Tansy enters a surreal black-and-white time and finds her life linked to mysterious, troubled Henry, who lived in the very same house and died as a teenager decades earlier. But the more time she spends in the past, the more her present world starts to fade away, and Tansy must untangle herself from Henry’s dangerous reality before her own life disappears completely.
A supernatural tale of ghosts, love, and destiny—perfect for fans of novels with an unearthly twist, such as Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall and Lisa McMann's Wake—Jennifer Archer has crafted a dark and romantic ghost story that will haunt teen readers long after the last page has been turned.

My thoughts: I love a good ghost's one of my favorite paranormal subjects to read. This one sounds really eerie and romantic. It sounds amazing!
