WWW Wednesday & WOW Waiting on Wednesday 6/27

WWW Wednesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, asks you to answer 3 questions…

1. What are you currently Reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

I am now reading Pure (Covenant 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
There is need. And then there is Fate...

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

White Witch (The Coven #1) by Trish Milburn
No One Quits The Family And Lives To Tell About It."Jax" Pherson has power, enough power to know her future will end in service to the dark coven her father controls. Unless she can stay hidden in a small community in the mountains of North Carolina. She must find a way to live without magic and deny the darkness she feels welling up inside her-the same dark power that fuels the covens around the world.All she wants is a normal life. A boyfriend. Friends. Some place to belong, but all too soon Jax's barely begun new life hangs in the balance when she discovers that the boy she's attracted to is sworn to kill her kind. He's a hunter with good reason to kill everything that goes bump in the night.Even the most fleeting use of her power is tantamount to signing her death warrant and will bring both hunter and coven down on her. But can she walk away when her friends are threatened by an old evil? Something created by the magic of witches? Jax's only hope of survival is to convince the boy she loves to forget everything he's ever been taught and help her find a way to fight the covens. To believe there is some good in her
I also have received the ARC of Glitch, so will work that one in this week too
In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or “glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

Will then read 
The Demoness of a Waking Dream Stephanie Chong
Even ANGELS can be tough... Ex-cop Brendan Clarkson is an angel with an edge. His tough exterior is the perfect camouflage for his job-hunting down the most dangerous criminals on earth. Brendan's a self-reliant and demanding lone wolf, constantly on the brink of clashing with his superiors at the Company of Angels.

Brendan is the perfect angel to track and capture demoness Luciana Rossetti. Luciana's cool, green-eyed beauty masks her true nature: inside, she's a dangerous and malevolent killer. Yet, she sees what most people don't-that beneath the layers of Brendan's rugged shell beats the heart of a passionate lover.

They are perfectly matched. Yin and yang. Angel and demon. Man and woman. But only one of them can win the battle of wills, of strength and of desire.

I just finished Half-Blood and LOVED it. I have a tease of a part from Aiden's POV. You can see the whole thing at Jennifer  website. Needed to share.
Here is summary of Half-Blood: (remember Daimon prequel you can get free at authors site.
The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

Halfblood Aiden POV tease (2 chapters at Jennifer's site to read) (see another post I made, a whole chapter of Aiden's POV, chapter 16 Here is that Post link .This teaser here from this site: 
Alex was standing in the middle of the little living room. She jumped when she saw me, but I was more surprised to actually get a good look at her without dirt covering her.
            I remembered her.
            But she wasn’t the little tomboy I recalled from the times I’d seen her. Some of the features were the same. She hadn’t grown much in height much, but my gods, she was….
            Long, thick chestnut colored hair fell past a chest that had grown in the last three years. Her face was oval shape; lips full like a pure-blood’s. Cheekbones high and eyebrows delicately arched over two wide brown eyes. Even with the faint purplish bruises marring an otherwise flawless complexion, she was…unbelievable.
            My entire body tensed as we locked eyes. Something most halfs wouldn’t even dare do, but oh no, she did. She stared back, the same appreciative stare I was giving her. A liquid feeling, like when I called on fire, simmered in my veins.
            A feeling I shouldn’t have.
            Alex tipped her head back. “What?”
I snapped out of it. What in the Hades was I thinking? “Nothing. You ready?”
“I guess so.”

**”Waiting On Wednesday” Is a weekly even hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, That spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly waiting in anticipation.**

Deity I am anxiously waiting for the 3rd book in the Covenant series, I am reading Pure Now. Due out Nov 6th 2012

"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time. "

Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden. 

If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome. 

But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed. 

Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate..

Feel free to leave comments, especially if a new follower, and also link to your post. I would love to read them. :) Have a great day!

I have some posted, and the links, or just go to author site. It makes the story your reading even better. :) Love Aiden, and by the end of HB i even like Seth more. :) Will get alot of Pure read tonight, I had to work on a ARC for review some today, got to split up my reading time, lol. we can discuss anytime when your done. :) I am here.

    Elle@LoveBigg.Read Bigg.

    1. Did you get Glitch from Netgalley too? I hate that I can't put on Kindle (I have a Fire) and have to read on computer. I even emailed them, they said its the only way they have it now. :( if you know how to get onto my kindle, let me know. I will work on Calbre to see if i can convert, but think its DRM protected, so wont be able to. :( Just hate reading on computer

  8. I still need to read Half Blood but I hear all amazing things about those books! I just read Glitch a couple weeks ago and liked it so I hope you do too. :)

    1. I got glitch from Netgalley, and am a little upset i can't have it in Kindle, It only has Adobe Digital and I hate reading on the computer. Too long and it hurts my eyes. Anyone know a way to get it only my Fire? I think its locked, so can't use Calbre to convert or anything, don't think I can't email to my kindle either. :( If anyone knows, let me know. Otherwise I will be slow at reading it on computer.

  9. I have Half-Blood and Daimon on my kindle but I haven't had time to get to them yet! Even so, I've heard awesome things about this author and will probably be buying Pure soon, and eagerly awaiting Deity!

    Thanks for stopping by, love!

  10. I haven't read Jennifer Armentrout's Covenant series so can't share the excitement. But. I can't wait to read Oynx!
