"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
I am extremely excited for a few books this Wednesday, but one that I would particularly like to highlight is Rebel Belle by beloved Hex Hall series author, Rachel Hawkins! We all already know how much I heart great covers and this one is pink AND girly and I absolutely love it! The delicate pearls highlight that this will be slightly girly but the dagger promises to anything but "girly." Can you say beauty queen, southern belle turns ninja warrior? I mean who doesn't need a little kickass southern belle in their lives? This promises to be a perfect weekend/Spring Break read and the synopsis leaves me so hungry for more! Can April 2014 be here any sooner? Please....
Summary courtesy of Goodreads:
Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.
Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him--and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.
With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y'all beg for more.
