Waiting on Wednesday (121): This Wicked Game + Broken

Busy. Who's busy? Me? Still trying to caught up with my reading but look! May's already over and I'm still stuck reading May releases. I already missed reading 3 June releases. Gomen ne, minna.

Anyway, check out my picks today. Is it good? OF COURSE!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Summary (from Goodreads):

Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years.

The voodoo business.

Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret.

She doesn’t believe.

Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s powerful founding family.

But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets the eye.

Including her own.

As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her.

Why I'm waiting for This Wicked Game:

Most of the premise reminds me of what Karou in Daughter of Smoke and Bone does, but there's something about the plot where Claire "doesn't believe" in voodoo and what her family does that makes me want to take a closer look and know more about this. It's like DoSaB and the Arkadien series combined and given a new twist. I am very, very curious.

Title: Broken by C.J. Lyons
Release Date: November 5th 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

The only thing fifteen-year-old Scarlet Killian has ever wanted is a chance at a normal life. Diagnosed with a rare and untreatable heart condition, she has never taken the school bus. Or giggled with friends during lunch. Or spied on a crush out of the corner of her eye. So when her parents offer her three days to prove she can survive high school, Scarlet knows her time is now... or never. Scarlet can feel her heart beating out of control with every slammed locker and every sideways glance in the hallway. But this high school is far from normal. And finding out the truth might just kill Scarlet before her heart does.

Why I'm waiting for Broken:

Isn't there a novel with a very similar shattered glass heart in it? Anyway, I've read the summary four times and it just sounds more and more like my kind of book. It's plots like this which sounds so simple that just intrigues me because I know there's surprises hiding inside of it once you've started reading. Attending high school for three days and finding something unexpected and deadly while she's there? I want this now.

  7. I'm interested in both of these books although Broken is a little bit more appealing-I am a sucker for books set in high school especially with cool twists.
