First Blog Hop Friday!

Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy For Books. Answer the weekly question and then, Friday through Monday, hop to see what other blogs are saying.  This is a great way to meet new friends and blogs!

This week's Blog Hop question came from Aliyah at Des Absurdites.
 "What book are you most looking forward to seeing published in 2011?  Why are you anticipating that book?"
My answer is:
Ripple by Mandy Hubbard
Release Date: July 21st, 2011

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. -

Why this story?  I love the idea of a modern story using the Greek siren mythology.  I'm a sucker for Greek myth stories.  And that they fall in love.  I'm also a sucker for a good romance.  What can I say?
What are YOU looking forward to?
