WAITING ON WEDNESDAY | FORBIDDEN by Kimberley Griffiths Little

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I or us, readers are eagerly anticipating. Here's my pick this week ...

Publisher: Harpercollins
Publication Date: November 4, 2014


In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden’s tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden’s turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe’s leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family’s position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden’s heart. 

Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden’s heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb’s increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden’s every move, she knows she must find a way to escape—or die trying. 

With a forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family’s survival on the line, Jayden must embark on a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself.

Set against the brilliant backdrop of the sprawling desert, the story of Jayden and Kadesh will leave readers absolutely breathless as they defy the odds and risk it all to be together.

FORBIDDEN is my WoW pick for this week because I just recently came across it and was really stunned to see it's early reviews and ratings in Goodreads. It definitely spiked up my curiosity as to how it earned such high ratings from these early readers. I'm also curious if it really does have that FORBIDDEN feels in it.Oh psh November, pretty please come faster already! I NEED THIS BOOK IN MY HANDS!
