Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


Destined
When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear. 
As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined. 
Destined is a fresh and heartachingly romantic retelling of the Cupid & Psyche myth from debut novelist, Jessie Harrell.


I've been dying for this book since I first heard about it. It looks so amazing. I mean, a story about Cupid and Psyche?! I need to get my hands on this as soon as possible. I love, love, LOVE myth retellings and this one sounds like it's going to rock my socks! :)
Plus look at that cover, it looks so elegant and simple. Love it! :)
What are you guys waiting for? Let me know!
