Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It lets us spotlight what upcoming books we can't wait for!

Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Release Date: October 12th, 2011

Summary via Goodreads:
A modern retelling of the German legend "Tristan and Isolde", "Tris and Izzy", is about a young witch named Izzie who is dating Mark King, the captain of the basketball team and thinks her life is going swimmingly well. Until-- she makes a love potion for her best friend Brangane and then ends up taking it herself accidentally, and falling in love with Tristan, the new guy at school. 

 First of all, how absolutely stunning is the cover? I am absolutely in love with it. The scene, the font of the title, it is all PERFECT. 
I also love the original story so I can't help but want to read a modern retelling of it!
I have seen this book on a lot of WoW posts over the past few weeks and I thank all those bloggers for bringing my attention to it!


The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: September 13th, 2011

Summary via Goodreads:
A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it?

A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRís calls to her body and soul.

She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in.
