Waiting on Wednesday: The Blessed by Tonya Hurley (The Blessed #1)(


Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.


Title: The Blessed by Tonya Hurley
Published by: Simon & Schuster 
Release date: September 25th, 2012

Brooklyn teens Lucy, Cecelia and Agnes find themselves in the emergency room at Perpetual Help Hospital at the lowest point in their lives. Lucy, the superficial party girl; Cecelia, a drop out rock chick; and Agnes, a hopeless romantic. All rebels running from their lives and themselves, plagued by broken hearts and broken dreams. Enter Sebastian. Mysterious, compelling, seductive. He seems to bring each of them what they long for...

But in the battle for his heart, will they lose their souls?
Why I want to read it:  This book sounds mysterious, and Sebastian seems like a really bad boy.  I bet there is more to it than that.  I have to confess that what I find the cover fascinating.  The girl is crying, with swollen eyes that look both beautiful and haunted at the same time.  There is a rosary hanging from her neck and a chain on her shoulder.  The title looks like a burst of light…  I just love it!

  1. ooooh this book sounds amazing, I agree! It was on my WoW last week! :) I have to say I prefer the other cover though -the black one :) I can't wait to find out more about Sebastian either! :P

  2. The cover surprised me when I first saw it and I definitely did not notice the necklace or chains. At first, this blurb sounds contemporary, but I'm wondering if maybe there's a little blend of something paranormal in there? Anyway, great pick!

  4. I'm not into contemporary but the last part makes it sound as if there may be more there.

  6. I also can't wait for this to come out! I'm not that big of a fan of the cover though. I personally like the UK version better. Awesome pick!
