Waiting On Wednesday (35): Ripple by Mandy Hubbard

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases.

Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
July 21, 2011; Razorbill/Penguin

-This book intrigues me based on the cover alone!

Lexi is cursed with a dark secret. The water calls to her, draws her in, forces her to sing her deadly song to unsuspecting victims. If she succumbs, she kills. If she doesn’t, the pain is unbearable. To keep herself and those she cares about safe, she shuts herself off, refusing to make friends or fall in love—again. Because the last time she fell in love with a boy, he ended up dead.

Then Lexi meets Cole. Against her better judgment, she finds herself opening up again, falling in love when she knows she shouldn’t. But when she’s offered the chance to finally live a normal life, she learns that the price she must pay to be free of her curse is giving him up.

In Ripple, Mandy Hubbard spins a sea-ravaged tale of melancholy beauty, and the choices one girl makes between land and waves, love and freedom, her future—and her heart.


  1. I am also waiting on this book to come out ^_^. I love mermaid/siren stories and its just great that a bunch of them are coming out this year.

  2. Hi Alison, I've seen this book in quite a few post over the last couple of weeks and I must admit it does look very interesting! And I agree with you on the cover! Sonette @ Bookworm Blog

  3. I love the dress the model is wearing on the cover. I want it!

  4. Interesting WOW. I haven't read a book about a siren before. Her situation sounds like the book i just read with a Black Widow in it who kills the men she loves because of a curse. Thanks for sharing.

    My WOW is a little different.

  5. This was my WoW pick a coouple of weeks ago as well. The cover is beautiful, can't wait for it to come out.
    Truly Bookish

  6. I've never heard of this one but the author sounds very familiar... but I can't think where I've heard about her. Will look her up on Goodreads now.

  7. I really can't wait for Ripple as well! I've really enjoyed Mandy Hubbard's previous novels so for sure, I'll be liking this one too! :)

  8. Great pick !! This cover is so cute !! Can't wait ;)

  9. I like that line: a sea-ravaged tale of melancholy beauty...nice! Definitely sounds like an interesting tale. The cover is different, too. I saw this on Goodreads, but didn't know what it was about. Never read any of the author's previous books. But I might try this one!

  10. I love the cover of this one! I really like the way the cover models are positioned here. I'm a little reluctant about the actual book though. I didn't love her other book You Wish

  11. I LOVE the sound of this one! The cover is beautiful, too, and the premise just captures me. Nice pick :)

  12. I really like the premise of this one - sounds like the protagonist is put in a pretty difficult situation!


I love comments. I appreciate every one! Thank you in advance.
