Waiting on Wednesday: Hexed

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Hexed
Publisher: Delacorte
Publish Date: June 10, 2014
Genre: YA, Paranormal
Pages: 369

If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?

Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.

Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.
I've been looking for a new paranormal lately, and I've always had a thing for witchy endeavors. Hexed sounds like it might just fit the bill. Despite the fact that I'm a little concerned about this one having the opportunity to fall into the petty and predictable trap, I do like that the main character seems to defy the norm for paranormal protagonists. I like that. I also love the cover font because, well, I choose books by their covers, obvs. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?


  1. I'm really looking forward to this one. I love a good witchy read, so this one seems right up my street! Also love the cover! :)

  2. Oooo we are so on the same page Melissa! I was thisclose to picking this one as my WOW this week and the only reason I didn't is because I picked a witch book last week and thought I should mix things up a bit. Definitely looking forward to this one!!!!

  3. I love witchy reads, but haven't read a really great one lately. I am definitely going to add this to my TBR list. I love the cover, too!

  7. Now THIS one sounds good! I do love a good witchy book and Indie sounds like an interesting character.

  8. Ooh yes this one looks really good!

    Thanks for sharing, hun! <33

  9. I just actually wrote another comment on a blog about how I've not come across a decent book which deals with witches, and although I'm really picky when it comes to paranormal books, Hexed already looks like a winner! Great pick Melissa! :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I always do my very best to return the favour :)
