Waiting On Wednesday (9)

I dubbed today as Lazy Day Wednesday. LOL. I just want the week to end so I can read more, and well, mostly because I'm in a reading slump. I haven't finished reading a single book this week. ><

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Title: Kindred by Tammar Stein
Release Date: 08 February 2011
Summary (From Goodreads):

The first time I meet an angel, it is Raphael and I am eighteen.

Miriam is an unassuming college freshman stuck on campus after her spring break plans fall through. She's not a religious girl--when pressed she admits reluctantly to believing in a higher power. Truth be told, she's about as comfortable speaking about her faith as she is about her love life, which is to say, not at all. And then the archangel Raphael pays Miriam a visit, and she finds herself on a desperate mission to save two of her contemporaries. To top it all off, her twin brother, Mo, has also had a visitation, but from the opposite end of the good-evil spectrum, which leaves Miriam to wonder--has she been blessed and her brother cursed or vice versa? And what is the real purpose behind her mission?

Title: Finding Sky by Joss Stirling
Release Date: 07 October 2010
Summary (From Goodreads):

When Sky catches a glimpse of Zed for the first time, lounging against his motorbike at school, she is drawn to him just like every other girl in Wickenridge. But Zed sees something special in her that the other girls don't have. Zed tells her they are both Savants - people with special powers like telepathy and the ability to see into the future. Not only that, she is a Savant too, and his soulfinder - meant to be together. When a soulfinder speaks telepathically to her partner, it's like all the lights coming on in a building. You lit me up like Vegas. But for Sky it's just not that easy - she's a mystery to herself, haunted by nightmares from her past before she was adopted, and riddled with doubt and insecurity. Just when Sky is slowly coming round to the idea of being with Zed she is kidnapped by a family of criminal Savants. In a chilling twist, Sky and Zed's relationship is put to the ultimate test and the fate of those she loves lie in Sky's hands. Will Sky have the strength to embrace her power and be brave enough to control her own destiny, or will the dark demons of her past prevent her from realising her true potential?

As Aaron of Guy One Geek had pointed out, I seem to be leaning towards the YA paranormal genre these days. Ah well, I'm enjoying it. I think the cover for Kindred is really nice! I like the Sepia tone. And yes, its about Angels.

I've added Finding Sky after reading Dwayne from Girls Without A Bookshelf's review. It looks like a fantastic book and a lot of other bloggers seem to think so, so I'm willing to give it a try! ^^
