"Waiting On" Wednesday (17) Hades and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

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

My picks this week are:
 
(Halo #2)
Expected publication: August 30th 2011
 
 
 
Even the love of her boyfriend, Xavier Woods, and her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can’t keep the angel Bethany Church from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, Jake Thorn bargains for Beth’s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly her loved ones as well. Can he be trusted in this wager? And what does Jake have Xavier believing about Beth’s fate that may result in an act of betrayal that will leave Bethany – and readers – wondering if Xav is so good after all?
 
 
(Mara Dyer #1)
Expected publication: September 27th 2011
 
 
 
Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.

She's wrong.

Cannot wait for Mara Dyer! I didn't love Halo, but I liked the writing, so I will probably give Hades a shot.

Me too! Me too! I want to read MARA DYER so badly!! And though I didn't like Halo all that much, I liked Ms. Adornetto's writing and thought I should give the series a second chance. Plus, those covers are so AWESOME. I pre-ordered both of these yesterday :).
