Waiting on Wednesday #3

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight a book you’re giddy with excitement to read so other people can be giddy with excitement too :)

  So, I do this a little differently. My blog is about books and films so I figure that my Waiting on Wednesday will also involve films that I am waiting to come out. I will post the trailer and say a little about the film and that way we can all enjoy new films that are coming out! =]

When her parents are murdered before her eyes, sixteen-year-old Helen Cartwright finds herself launched into an underground London where a mysterious organization called the Dictata controls the balance of good and evil. Helen learns that she is one of three remaining angelic descendants charged with protecting the world’s past, present, and future. Unbeknownst to her, she has been trained her whole life to accept this responsibility. Now, as she finds herself torn between the angelic brothers protecting her and the devastatingly handsome childhood friend who wants to destroy her, she must prepare to be brave, to be hunted, and above all to be strong, because temptation will be hard to resist, even for an angel.

Michelle Zink masterfully weaves historical fantasy with paranormal romance to create a gripping tale of love and betrayal.

So here’s the deal . . .

Strange things have been happening to Daire Santos. Animals follow her, crows mock her, glowing people appear from nowhere. Worried that Daire’s having a breakdown, her mother sends her to stay with the grandmother she’s never met, who lives on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico. There Daire crosses paths with Dace, a gorgeous guy with unearthly blue eyes.

Her grandmother recognizes Daire’s episodes for what they are – a call to her true destiny as a Soul Seeker, a person who can navigate between the living and the dead. Guided by her grandmother, Daire must be quick to learn how to harness her powers because Dace’s brother is an evil shape-shifter, out to steal them.

Daire must embrace her fate as a Soul Seeker and discover if Dace is the guy she’s meant to be with . . . or if he’s allied with the enemy she’s destined to destroy.

A Temptation of Angels has been on my radar for a while now and ever since I first saw it, I knew it was a book that I would love and that I really wanted to read and so, finally, I am featuring it on my WoW! It just has such a great synopsis, doesn’t it? Ahhh!
Fated just looks and sounds so… amazing! I mean, look at that cover!! I know, I know, don’t judge a book by its cover and all that but isn’t it pretty? And then, you read the summary and I know it’s a book that I want to read! Yay!!

  Title: The Avengers
Release Date: 27th April 2012 (UK)
What?: An adaptation of the marvel  comic book avengers.

When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as SHIELD, finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

The Avengers continues the epic big-screen adventures started in “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor” and “Captain America: The First Avenger”. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since.

Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012.

 I have never read the comic books but I have seen almost all of the other films that lead onto this one and I can therefore say with glee that I am incredibly excited for this movie to come out! I can’t wait to see how it turns out and I mean… just LOOK at that trailer!! -falls over-

what are you waiting on this week? =]

  1. @PixieDREAMER – Ahhh! Now you’ve gotten me even more excited (if that was possible, aha) and I hadn’t heard of Meridian until now but since you mention it, it does sound similiar! Be interesting to see how that turns out!

  2. I loove the covers for both of these books, so pretty!! <3 I haven’t read any of Alyson’s previous novels and only one of Michelle’s, but these both sound amazing! I cannot wait to read!

    Oooh The Avengers looks awesome!! I totally need to watch that. I’ve never read the comics either and SHAMEFULLY I have not watched any of the films that star the individual heroes (I’m such a bad movie-watcher, but your blog is going to save me from this horrible habit!).

  3. Great choices, can’t wait for Temptation of Angels and Fated. Love the covers for both!

    I also can’t wait for Avengers! I am huge fan of the previous films and comics. I recently saw the panel for this at comic con and it looks amazing.

    Thanks for stopping by!
