Well, this week’s Waiting on Wednesday has been quite the rage over the last week or so. The debut novel by Marissa Meyer is out on shelves January 3rd, and I actually have the ARC sitting right in front of me as I type this. I’m oh-so-tempted to read it now, but I wanted to enjoy it as part of the 2012 Debut Author Challenge…. so I must wait another 1.5 weeks. 🙂
Oh, but all the contests, rave reviews and the newly released book trailer has got me extremely intrigued and excited to finally get a chance to dig into it!
by Marissa Meyer

But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
