Waiting on Wednesday (154)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Siren by Kiera Cass (1/26/16):

Description on Goodreads:
From Kiera Cass, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Selection series, comes a sweeping stand-alone fantasy romance.

A girl with a secret.
The boy of her dreams.
An Ocean between them.

Years ago, Kahlen was rescued from drowning by the Ocean. To repay her debt, she has served as a Siren ever since, using her voice to lure countless strangers to their deaths. Though a single word from Kahlen can kill, she can’t resist spending her days on land, watching ordinary people and longing for the day when she will be able to speak and laugh and live freely among them again.

Kahlen is resigned to finishing her sentence in solitude...until she meets Akinli. Handsome, caring, and kind, Akinli is everything Kahlen ever dreamed of.

Falling in love with a human breaks the Ocean’s rules. But for the first time in a lifetime of following the rules, Kahlen is determined to follow her heart.
Why I’m Waiting:
So, it looks like this book was actually published a long time ago, but HarperTeen has now picked it up and republished/redesigned it. And I think it looks so pretty. Of course, I have to read all of Cass’s books. They are all so addicting and fun. And how addicting and fun does this one sound too?
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Oh man this is how old I have been on the blogosphere, Nori....Kiera Cass self published this book in 2008 or 2009! It did fairly well. She then wrote the Selection and it got picked up, and LOL did well, so I guess HarperTeen is now republishing it. How cool!

  3. I remember this book was self-published, I believe! I like that this cover is different from her other novels. Still not going to read it, but I like the cover! I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Nori :)
