Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we share what books we are most looking forward to.


Tyger Tyger 
by: Kersten Hamiltion
Publication Date: Nov. 15th 2010!  SO CLOSE!!

From Goodreads:

Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems. 

Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right. 

The goblins are coming.







Super exctied for this one. I haven't read too many books with goblins in them.  Except of course Lord of the Rings and ya know Spiderman had The Green Goblin, and he wasn't all that bad.  Goblins always seem to be getting a bad rap though, which is too bad because they seem to be talented in quite a lot of things ranging from weapon making to being ugly.  Poor guys!  Has anyone even tried to talk to them? Maybe they are really gentle creatures once you break through that protective wall they have put up around themselves!

Maybe......




What are you waiting for??

You know what? They're offering a galley of this on Netgalley. I received a copy of it, and I'm really excited to read it! I'm bombarded w/ midterms and such right now, but as soon as I can, I want to get into this right away! :)
