Waiting on Wednesday: Destined and The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: Destined
Author: Jessie Harrell
Publisher: Mae Day Publishing
Date of Release: November 17, 2011 

Goodreads Description: When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear. As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined. 

Why am I waiting? I love, love Greek mythology and this one is based on the Cupid and Psyche myth.



Title: The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers
Author: Lynn Weingarten
Publisher: HarperCollins Canada
Date of Release: December 27, 2011 

Goodreads Description: When her boyfriend breaks up with her on the first day of sophomore year, Lucy has no idea how she’s going to make it through homeroom, let alone the rest of her life. Enter three stunning girls with a magical offer Lucy can’t refuse. All she has to do is get a guy to fall in love with her in the next seven days, and then ... break his heart and collect one of his brokenhearted tears. As the girls teach Lucy how to hook a guy (with the help of a little magic), she quickly discovers how far she is willing to go - and who she is willing to cross - to get what she wants. Fans of Lauren Myracle, Jodi Lynn Anderson, and Meg Cabot will love this tale of breakups, friendship, new crushes, and magic. Told with wit and charm, The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers is sure to be one of this winter’s most irresistible reads! 

Why am I waiting? The premise of this one sounds so fun, and I like that rather than a guy going around and breaking hearts, this time it's a girl. Also, the summary says that this one will appeal to fans of Meg Cabot and I love Meg's writing.

  12. I'm seeing a lot of Destined today and each time I see it, it looks better and better! I love Greek mythology too, and Cupid and Psyche has always been a particular favorite of mine so I can't wait to read it!

  14. For some reason I feel like I'm going to cry with The Sisterhood of Heartbreakers, just because I feel like characters are going to get very hurt emotionally... I don't know.

    And the Cupid/Psyche retelling or twist for Destined is my calling. I love all things Greek mythology-ish, so it has my name (and yours, obviously) written all over it. It SHRIEKS read-me signals.
