Waiting on Wednesday #49

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Revel by Maurissa Guibord

Summary via Goodreads:
There's an island off the coast of Maine that's not on any modern map. Shrouded in mist and protected by a deadly reef, Trespass Island is home to a community of people who guard the island and its secrets from outsiders. Seventeen-year-old Delia grew up in Kansas, but has come here in search of her family and answers to her questions: Why didn't her mother ever talk about Trespass Island? Why did she fear the open water? But Delia's not welcome and soon finds herself enmeshed in a frightening and supernatural world where ancient Greek symbols adorn the buildings and secret ceremonies take place on the beach at night. Sean Gunn, a handsome young lobsterman, befriends Delia and seems willing to risk his life to protect her. But it's Jax, the coldly elusive young man she meets at the water's edge, who finally makes Delia understand the real dangers of life on the island. Delia is going to have to fight to survive. Because there are monsters here. And no one ever leaves Trespass alive.
-----

Why am I looking forward to Revel by Maurissa Guibord? Because I'm interested to see how the Greek symbols (and likely, mythology) play a part in Revel. And while it seems like it has a (potential) love triangle, I can't say that I hate them--although I dislike it when the main character's choice is too obvious. In short, I'm really looking forward to seeing how Revel plays out!

Revel by Maurissa Guibord is published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, a part of Random House, and its expected publication date is February 12, 2013. (Unsure if this will be the final cover or not, but it's gorgeous nonetheless!)

What are you waiting on this week?

  2. This sounds like an awesome mystery though I'm a little wary about the love-triangle haha. But still, I'll definitely have to check it out once it's released because mysteries are one of my favorite types of books to read when they're done right! Plus, the whole Greek thing has me ridiculously curious! Fantastic pick and thanks for sharing :)

  3. This sounds like such a great book. I added it to my wishlist a few days ago. I don't really enjoy reading about love triangles, but I think I'll buy this for the plot anyway.
