Waiting on Wednesday #38: Oceanborn by Amalie Howard July 9, 2014

eb176-newwow

Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine. It showcases upcoming releases we’re anticipating!

 

 My pick of the week is:

Oceanborn (The Aquarathi #2)

 By: Amalie Howard

 Coming: 29 July 2014

 Publisher: Harlequin Teen

 

 Summary:
The coronation is over.

But the battle has just begun.

Nerissa Marin has won her crown. But can she keep it? Already, her ties to the human realm are driving a wedge between Nerissa and her people. When word arrives that her part-human prince consort, Lo, has been poisoned, she makes the difficult choice to leave Waterfell and return landside. As the royal courts debate her decision, even more disturbing rumors surface: a plot is rising against her, led by someone she least expects.

On land, Nerissa learns another shocking truth: Lo does not remember who she is. As her choice to try to save him threatens her hold on her crown, changing loyalties and uncertainty test her courage in ways she could never have imagined. Nerissa will have one last chance to prove herself as a queen …and save the undersea kingdom she loves.

 

Why I’m excited:

 OMG I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!!!!!! I absolutely adore Amalie. She’s so sweet and wonderful. I discovered her during the 2013 Fall YASH and I’ve never looked back. I won her giveaway for a signed ARC of Waterfell. I read it. I LOVED IT! I raved about it. I still rave about it. OH MAN. Rissa is a great character and don’t even get me started on Lo. BTW. Dibs. DIBS DIBS DIBS. Lo is MINE. *glares* Anyway. I’m so excited to see where the action picks up. OMG I NEED IT NOOOOOOOOW. It’s even worse knowing I have a copy heading my way from Amalie. The wait is excruciating. I just read Seamonster over the holiday weekend and adored it as well. Keep an eye out for my review and a giveaway coming up in the next few weeks. (: Reading it only made it worse. I MUST KNOW MORE!!!

 

Why I need you to be excited:

 Sea aliens. Drama. HOT GUYS. Yes. Guys. Well. Guy cause Lo is off limits cause he is MINE. IT’S GONNA BE AWESOME! I could go on and on about why you need to read this book. But I won’t. Just do yourself a favour and order Waterfell and Oceanborn. Just do it. DO IT. I NEED YOU TO GET PUMPED UP FOR THE AWESOMENESS!!!! *flails everywhere* THREE MORE WEEEEEEEEKS!!!
