Waiting on Wednesday (26): Furious

"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:

 Furious by Jill Wolfson
Release Date: April 16th 2013 by Henry Holt and Co. BYR
 Format: Hardcover



 Goodreads Summary:
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.



Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. The mythology. To me the furies are some of the most interesting characters/figures in Greek Mythology. I am fascinated by them, by the idea of having three women who seek to avenge wrongs.
 
2. The synopsis. It looks like the three girls in this book are gonna be totally badass and I can't wait to see who they are angry at and how they become the furies and most importantly, what they are going to do as the Furies :O
 It all looks amazeballs!



 What do you guys think? :)

    I see you're reading Stolen Night. I'm extremely jealous of that. I have to wait until 2013, unless I'm able to get an ARC.

    I hope you'll check out my site!
