Waiting on Wednesday {2}

Hey everyone and welcome to my Waiting on Wednesday meme post! This is just a once a week deal where each Wednesday I post about one book I am looking forward to reading and then link it up to the host blog, Breaking the Spine, where I can be connected to over 200 other readers and bloggers who are looking for a new read! My friend Kim from kimberlyfayereads participates in this meme each week and it has always looked like a great time so now I'm joining in on the fun. Below you will find the book cover, synopsis, Goodreads link and my reasons for waiting on this read! Enjoy!

This week's WOW is... The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout!

The Return (Titan #1)
Release Date: February 17, 2015
Genre: New Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody – which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to “puree”. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of an ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

I'm going to be upfront and completely honest with you readers this week. I am technically not "waiting" on this read, because I already was lucky enough to have been seen an ARC copy by Mrs. Jennifer L. Armentrout! I am waiting on reading it until my life has slowed down and I can devote the time to it that is truly deserves. Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my all time favorite authors. Some of my regular readers may remember a few months ago where I did a HUGE series review of Jennifer's Covenant series and called it one of my favorite series to date. It was round about then I first found out about The Return and have been excited about it every since. Covenant changed my literary life in so many ways. Seth became my book homeboy over night. Seriously, he is one of my all time favorite book characters. You can only imagine the excitement I felt when I first learned that JLA was writing a spin off series based around Seth? I seriously about fell out. If The Return ends up being even half as good as the Covenant series was, it'll become one of my newest favorites. I have NO idea what JLA has up her sleeve in terms of how many books will be in the Titan series, but I am personally hoping for about 15 (*wishful thinking*)! For these reasons and many, many more, The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout is my pick for this weeks' Waiting on Wednesday! Also, JLA is hosting a HUGE release party in Philadelphia for the release of The Return on February 28, 2015 and calling it Apollycon! You can learn more about Apollycon by clicking here. I plan on making the drive there (close to 15 hours) just to celebrate with everyone! I hope to meet LOTS of JLA fans there!

What are YOU waiting on this week?
Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading!
