Waiting on Wednesday: Ripple

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. The idea behind this meme is to highlight up and coming releases that we just can't wait to read.

This week's can't wait for read is Ripple by Mandy Hubbard.

Let me start off by saying that it's a good thing I read the synopsis, because that is what drew me in. The cover? (Which I hope isn't the final one)

Definitely not one of my favourites.

The book is set to be published 21st July 2011 - so it's quite a long wait. Still, I'm definitely adding this to my list because I love a good mermaid/siren story and this one looks like it's going to be a fabulous one!
Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Summary:
Eighteen year old Lexi Wentworth is cursed. For as long as she can remember, she’s spent every night swimming. If she doesn’t, she’ll regret it—simply walking will be agony, as if she’s stepping on shattered glass.

Her body craves the water, demands the water, until she can’t say no.

But it's not the swimming that troubles Lexi. It’s the singing that goes with it.When she turned sixteen, her siren song killed the only boy she's ever loved.

Now, she avoids the popular shores of the Pacific in favor of a long forgotten lake up in the mountains, where she can swim and sing in peace, far from the population of her oceanside home.

Until, that is, Cole Mills discovers her lake. He’s new to Lincoln City High, and he doesn’t know about Lexi’s reputation as an ice queen—a reputation she’s carefully cultivated to keep everyone around her safe. He pushes her, talks to her, forces her to dream of what life could be like if she weren’t a siren.

Lexi can’t stop herself from warming to him, from falling for him. Soon, he’s demanding answers, following her to the lake, unknowingly risking his life. How can she keep him safe when the one thing she wants most--to hold him close - will endanger his life?

How awesome does that sound?

What's on your WoW list this week?

Aww, I think the cover is eye-catching. But I can't wait for this too. Seems a little darker than her previous books.

This one's on my wishlist too! The concept of her as a siren is a great change from all the vampire/werewolf books out there :)
