Waiting on Wednesday #20- Starcrossed

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Author:  Josephine Angelini 
Release Date: June 3, 2011 
Publisher:  Macmillan Children's Books
Greek Mythology/Romance

Synopsis from Goodreads: Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention. Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?
Doesn't it sound so cool. If they taught Greek Mythology like this in school, I know I would have payed more attention. I love reading books set around Greek Mythology, especially romance books. Sherrilyn Kenyon does this with her Dark Hunters Series and it remains my favorite adult romance series to date!!! This books sounds like it is going to be friggen amazing. I can't wait!!!

What are you guys waiting for this Wednesday?
