Waiting on Wednesday (23)

Dreamless (Starcrossed, #2)

Josephine Angelini
May 29th 2012

As the only Scion that can enter Hades at will, Helen descends to the Underworld in search of a way to overcome the Furies and end the cycle of revenge that has cursed the Scions. But she’s running out of time. Each descent weakens her both in mind and spirit. A mysterious stranger might be her only salvation, but the price may be her love for Lucas Delos.

As an unforgettable love triangle emerges, Josephine Angelini’s compelling saga becomes ever more intricate and spellbinding. The eagerly awaited sequel to the internationally bestselling Starcrossed, Dreamless delivers with a huge emotional impact that will leave readers satisfied—and longing for more.

Starcrossed was one of my favourite books of 2011, I have been counting down the days until Dreamless's release (76 days). I'm also a huge history and mythology buff, so this series is awesome for me. Read Starcrossed if you haven't already! LOVE this cover to death!

Everything is in ruins.

A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them.

So what does Araby Worth have to live for?

Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.

But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what
he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.

And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her.

I wasn't too interested in this one at first but based on what I've heard of this I will have to check it out ASAP when it's released.  It sounds AMAZING!!! Don't really like the cover though...

What are you waiting for??

  7. MASQUE was an awesome book!!!!

    stop by my post? I'm hosting an exclusive cover reveal for a fall 2012 YA from Paper Lantern Lit and Philomel/Penguin!


  8. I also haven't read Starcrossed yet, but the reviews I've seen of Dreamless have been overwhelmingly positive. Masque of the Red Death, though . . . so much yes. Amazing premise, amazing cover (I, personally, am a fan :P), and IT'S BASED OFF OF POE! :D Which automatically makes it awesome. It just needs to be out already.
