Wishlist Wednesday

Description, a la Goodreads: Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn’t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love—again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead. 

Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgment, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldn’t. But when she’s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up. 

So, a few things I'm already loving about this book: the protagonist's powers aren't sparkles and rainbows, they're dangerous.  The protagonist is a siren (or something like it), a species sadly neglected in modern fiction.  The cover is intriguing - not just pretty, but interesting too.  And the title is amazing, I'm seriously loving it.

Anyways, Ripple will be out in July - and I already can't wait!  What do you think - will you be reading Ripple?
