Waiting for Wednesday #6

7 Sep 2011

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Author: Anna Banks
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Expected Release Date: May 22nd 2011

Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate with fish.
What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings.

I have a weakness for gorgeous covers, so I feel like I'll read this no matter what the book is about :) The blurb sounds interesting - a human who can communicate with fish?!?! That's pretty awesome! The rest sounds a tiny bit cliched...but I'm still going to read it! 


  1. I can't wait for this book either! "Across The Universe" was AMAZING and I just love Beth Revis! Great post & Great blog!Register Domain

  2. I definitely agree with you about the cover, it is absolutely gorgeous! I really can't wait to read this book either, it looks amazing! Great choice!! Also, I totally love your blog & am now following!! Here's my WoW: :]

  3. Oh my goodness. That cover is so, so, gorgeous. I want to own this just to have that cover. It's one of those ones I'm tempted to print out and hang on my wall.
    The book itself sounds pretty interesting as well. I'm excited for this to come out.

  4. This looks like it's going to be good! New follower! Cute blog!

    My WoW

  5. Oh my god, that cover looks gorgeous!! It sounds a bit like a typical paranormal romance, but I love the whole being-able-to-communicate-with-fish part!! Super interested in that!

  6. Thanks for posting the blurb! I just discovered Anna's blog and her cover but the blurb wasn't up on her links yet. Sounds like a great read! New follower here:)

  7. This one has been really popular this week!

  8. I love the cover! This is twice that I've seen this book, but, unfortunately, the publishing day is so far away(I rhymed) :( Oh, but I would like to point out one mistake, I think "May 22nd 2011" should be "May 22nd 2012."
