Title: Sweet Evil

Author: Wendy Higgins

Publication: May 1st, 2012

Description:  What if there were teens whose lives 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 to meet her father forces Anna to face the reality that hope and love are not options for her kind. When she confronts her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?

Why I'm Waiting: There's a lot about Sweet Evil that's drawing me in. "He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna." AKA bad boy romance, my favorite! And then, "When she confronts her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?" So, the main character is half demon half angel? Or something like that? Sign me up! And since we're involving demons and angels, I'm guessing the bad boy in question has his own pair of horns.

For those of you that don't know, demons happen to be one of my favorite little monsters in my YA paranormal/fantasy books. Most YA books seem to be fluffy and filled with characters that wouldn't hurt a fly, but when demons come into the picture the story tends to have a darker edge to it that is just so refreshing. And Sweet Evil is going to have demons and angels. Like pretzels and chocolate, ice cream and cookie dough. Yum yum yum. To top it off, the reviewers who've been lucky enough to already read an ARC of this one are raving about it.

What are you guys waiting to read?

Linny @ Linnys Literature said...

Me too! Especially the guy looking all tall, dark, and handsome. ;)

Meg said...

Ah! This one was discovered on inkpop, a writing site I used to go to. I'm so excited for this one as well! :)

My WoW

Linny @ Linnys Literature said...

That's so cool that it was discovered like that! Gives hope to the small writers out there. And I checked out your WoW too. ;)

Natasa @ The YA Cover said...

I saw this a few weeks ago and the summary still sounds super cheesy to me. It's got a very lovely cover, anyhow :)

Here's my WoW for this week!

Linny @ Linnys Literature said...

I suppose it might be a tad cheesy.. but I'm still pumped anyhow. ;)

And I checked out your WoW! :)

Natasa @ The YA Cover said...

Hmmm... I think I'll just add it to my TBR. It might turn out surprisingly different, who knows! :)

And thank you! :)

No probelm and thanks to you too for commenting and following! I appreciate it. :)

Linny @ Linnys Literature said...

Haha, thank you! :) I thought it was a pretty good comparison. Thanks for stopping by!

The posture of that girl on the cover is a little awkward for me :/ And that dress...ermm...more suitable for a runway show maybe...that's just my opinion anyway :)

I hope this is not another book about a Mary Sue heroine with a cold, distant, brooding supernaturally-gifted hero.

Linny @ Linnys Literature said...

Haha it probably will be. I think the main thing that is making me interested in it anyway is that it sounds like the MC is part demon and part angel or something. Haven't seen that before. When I read it I'll let you know if it's a dud or not. :)

Celine said...

I really like the red dress, but I have no idea what that guy is doing with his hand there. Books like these usually turn out to be really awesome, or absolutely terrible. Let me know which one it is :D

All that talk about food makes me hungry! *scuttles off to eat some cookies*

Celine ~ Nyx Book Reviews

Linny @ Linnys Literature said...

I agree, most books like these are either love it or leave it and nothing in between. I'll definitely let you know which as soon as I can get my hands on it!

Haha! Glad to know I'm not the only one who scuttles when I'm going to get cookies. ;)

Felicia said...

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my latest review. I'm a huge Michelle Rowen fan, but was sad to see that Dark Kiss wasn't what I'd expected.

Erin said...

Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by again and for the follow! Love your blog! I wish mine was as popular and wonderful as yours!
I just read the Hex Hall series which happens to have demons in it as well. I was kind of iffy in the beginning about them, but by the end of that series I was thinking about picking up another book about them. I'm glad I read your post about this book!
I'm putting it on my "Cannot wait for" list!

:)

Linny @ Linnys Literature said...

Your welcome Erin, and you are too sweet! :) I appreciate it.

And I haven't read the Hex Hall series yet but I didn't know it had demons in it! I will definiately have to check it out now.

After this one finally comes out we'll both have to read it and compare our thoughts! :)
