Waiting on Wednesday (10)


Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme highlights some of the books whose releases bloggers are most anticipating this year.

This week I’m hotly anticipating…

The Blessed

The Blessed by Tonya Hurley

Expected Publication: September 25th 2012 by Simon & Schuster

From the author of the New York Times bestselling ghostgirl series, the start to a captivating and haunting teen trilogy about three girls who become entangled with an enigmatic boy—a boy who believes he is a saint.

What if martyrs and saints lived among us? And what if you were told you were one of them?
Meet Agnes, Cecilia, and Lucy. Three lost girls, each searching for something. But what they find is Beyond Belief.



Actually, I swear this book is already out because I could swear I saw this cover on the bookshelves of my local bookstore. Or maybe I’m going more crazy and delusional than I already am?

What’s your WoW?

  1. Wow what a cool tattoo, and I’m intrigued by the Goodreads blurb. I am going to have to keep this one in mind for a future reserve at the library.

  2. I could be wrong, but I think this was released in August in the UK? That’s the cover for the UK edition, so perhaps that’s why you’ve been seeing it around. September is the US release and it’s a different cover. Don’t worry, you aren’t losing it! 😀 I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of this. It was a bit too bizarre for me but I hope you like it better. 🙂

      Yes, I swore I’d seen it in the store, but I thought I was going crazy especially when I was looking at the release dates on several sites stating that one. haha. Oh well, I’m still waiting on it.
      Yay, we have a book before the US! hahaha.
      Hmmm, I do love the UK cover better as well!

  3. I love the UK Cover of this and I actually just received a copy of this in the mail, but I won’t be reading it. I’ve seen some reviews of this which make me think it won’t be for me, but I hope you enjoy it when it releases, Olivia! I really do adore that cover though!(: Fantastic pick, dear!

      You received a copy in the mail?! How did that work? Did you request it? I love the UK cover too and I’ve heard it’s already out in the UK which is great. Ahhh, I won’t let that deter me!
      Thank you.

  4. I like this cover MUCH better than the one staring at me from my shelves (it kind of creeps me out). This book sounds so interesting – great pick!

  5. I saw this in my local bookstore the other day too! I love the cover to this and the synopsis sounds interesting too! Great pick Livvy! 🙂

  6. Haven’t seen this cover, but I have this one and need to make a chance to read.
    Hope you get to read it soon,

  12. You know? I’ve seen this cover before too! Maybe it’s the tattoos or I don’t know, there are a lot of books out there with the same cover right now! lol
    But it sounds pretty interesting! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my WoW! 😀

    • Livvy @Nerdy Book Reviews

      I figured out that the book is out in the UK! But there are lots of similar book cvers out, you’re right! 🙂

  13. I absolutely LOVE this cover but I think Sam read this and didn’t really care for it. Hope it goes better for you. Great pick Livvy. 🙂
