"Waiting on" Wednesday (#8)


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




Title - Furious
Author - Jill Wolfson
Release Date: April 13th 2013

Three high school girls become the avenging Furies of Greek legend.

We were only three angry girls, to begin with. Alix, the hot-tempered surfer chick; Stephanie, the tree-hugging activist; and me, Meg, the quiet foster kid, the one who never quite fit in. We hardly knew each other, but each of us nurtured a burning anger: at the jerks in our class, at our disappointing parents, at the whole flawed, unjust world.

We were only three angry girls, simmering uselessly in our ocean-side California town, until one day a mysterious, beautiful classmate named Ambrosia taught us what else we could be: Powerful. Deadly. Furious. 


I really like the sound of this book... I have seen this book on Goodreads and I thought this would something very different for my 'WoW' this week.What is very interesting is the short description that's makes the book even more intriguing and compelling. It's also very different to find that the Furies are three very powerful women... Which I haven't read or come across before!

 I have been making myself goals within YA and one of them is to try and read more Greek Mythology twists. I have to say I don't read a lot of Greek Mythology... I know shocking right! I know that their are a lot of really good books surrounding this genre.

Do you know any? I would love any recommendations! =)
