~Waiting on Wednesday~ The Marked Girl

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele
Out: 6/21

From Goodreads:
                Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (Los Angeles)…

                When Cedric, crowned prince of Caelum, and his fellow royal friends (including his betrothed, Kat) find themselves stranded in modern-day L.A. via a magical portal and an evil traitor named Malquin, all they want is to do is get home to Caelum—soon.  Then they meet Liv, a filmmaker foster girl who just want to get out of the system and on with her life.  As she and Cedric bond, they’ll discover that she’s more connected to his world than they ever could’ve imagined…and that finding home is no easy task…

                Worlds collide in The Marked Girl, an exciting fantasy tale turned upside down.

Why I’m Waiting:
                The cover caught my eye at first and then as I read about it I was intrigued.  It sounded like something right my up alley.  First book in a new series so it sounds like it could have promise.  World displacement stories always seem to be fun as I enjoy watching the characters try to figure out the new world and I’d like to think I’d be the person who if I found said person I’d be open minded and help them, especially if they were super hot just saying. 


                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out!

    1. It's amazing what a good cover and blurb can do to pull one into a book they might not normally be drawn to! The power of books!
