Waiting On Wednesday: Rebel Belle (Rachel Hawkins)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Rebel Belle (Rebel Belle, #1)

Title: Rebel Belle
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Release Date: April 8, 2014
Summary (from Goodreads):

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.

Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things get complicated when Harper starts falling for him--and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: I just finished Rachel's latest, School Spirits, and I can't wait for more from her! Her easy writing style and realistic characters make for light, fun reads. Rebel Belle's cover is the last thing I would normally pick up (pink and pearls - ugh), but I'm always game when the MC has "incredible abilities." And again, it's Rachel - I'll always give Rachel a try.

So what book are you waiting on this Wednesday?
