Waiting on Wednesday (9)

This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of! 

By Jessie Harrell
Release Date: November 17th 
Summary: 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'm not familiar with the myth this novel is based on, but the story sounds so good! Falling in love with someone you know is bad for you is so much fun to read about, but what makes it better is that Psyche knows that it's going to happen. Love stories are my favorite, so I can't wait to see how Psyche ends up falling in love with this bad creature. Not to mention this cover is so gorgeous! It looks so pristine and just plain awesome that I'm sure it will make anyone read its story. Destined sounds like such a good read and I don't know how I'm going to wait until November for it!
