Waiting for May to Bring the Delight of June Dreams

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill from Breaking the Spine that showcases upcoming releases that we can't wait to claim as our own & aren't afraid to tell that to the world!


Just because Ella can burn someone to the ground with her mind doesn't mean she should.  

But she wants to.  

For ten years—ever since she was a small child—Ella has been held prisoner on an interstellar starship. Now that she has escaped, she needs answers.

Who is she? Why was she taken? And who is the boy with the beautiful green eyes who haunts her memories?

Is Ella the prophesied Destructor… or will she be the one who's destroyed?





Coming Soon on 5 June 2012.


Before I start, first things first, I really don't like the cover. 

But... Like the proverb goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover." *glum* I think that is proving to be rather wise, especially when applied to books with not-so-great covers (my opinion :/). 

Because, once I hesitantly clicked on the cover image and scanned through the blurb, I was sold. Completely. Absolutely. Irrevocably. 

I just love boys with beautiful green eyes!

This story simply sounds awesome. Across the Universe + The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer = Pure fantastic mind-blowing masterpiece of a tale.

Prepare to shout "Hooray!" as June is flying to us with open arms ;) And since I'm on it, tomorrow's the last day of May. And, the very important thing is... 31 May is my birthday! 

What's better to celebrate the coming of June and its great reads with a birthday giveaway? Click here to see what it's all about. 

What are you waiting for? :)

  5. For some reason I thought this book was alread out - so it's nice to see that it isn't because I felt like soo many people had read it already except for me! And yes, definitely agree that sometimes it's best NOT to judge a book by it's cover :)

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!
