Waiting on Wednesday (6): Sweet Evil

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Release Date: May 1st 2012 by HarperTeen 
Format: Paperback


 Goodreads Summary: 
What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.

Tenderhearted Southern girl, Anna Whitt, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

A cross-country trip forces Anna to face the reality that hope and love are not options for her kind. Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?



Reasons I want to read & own this book:
1. The title. It's intriguing to me. Sweet Evil. Quite an interesting juxtaposition if you ask me. Why? because these are two words that are not expected to be connected at all. What evil can be sweet? O_o I surely want to know. Super curious right now. And I'm loving how clever and ironic the title is. And I think it's foreshadowing of how the story will be itself.
2. The cover is awesome. Loving the flaring red gown and the contrast of the girl in the super vivacious gown and the guy dressed in all black
3. Fallen Angels. Angels and Demons -> SO in. I love to read each author's unique take on these paranormal beings, their histories and personalities and I definitely can't wait to see how Sweet Evil portrays them.

  2. Juxtaposition! Sorry, but I'm from Germany and this morning I have learned the word because of this one comment, so now I'm sorta happy that I know what you're talking about without having to look it up. XD

    I really like the cover and title as well. I'm not a big Angel fan, because there is so much potential and often authors just.. I don't know, make it one big trope. BUT it sounds promising and I think I'll try and read Sweet Evil, too, once it hits the shelves. :)

    1. Haha, well I am happy to hear that. Juxtaposition is one of those fancy words I'm obsessed with because you don't see it often. And sweet evil is an ironic juxtaposition which is even more rare so when I saw that the title of this book was an ironic juxtaposition I totally geeked out xD

      I hear you on your angel worries. It's a tricky subject to tackle. There are a lot of early-amazing reviews for Sweet Evil, though. So I think it's gonna be amazeballs! :)
