Waiting On Wednesday (36)

Waiting On Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

Elixir by Hilary Duff.
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing.
Release Date: October 12th, 2010.

As the daughter of a renowned surgeon and a prominent Washington D.C. politician, Clea Raymond has felt the glare of the spotlight her entire life. And though she dreads the paparazzi who track her every move, she herself is a talented photojournalist who takes refuge in a career that allows her to travel to the most exotic parts of the world.

But after Clea’s father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, eerie, shadowy images of a strange and beautiful young man begin to appear in Clea’s photos—a man she has never seen in her life.

When Clea suddenly encounters this man in person she is stunned—and feels an immediate and powerful connection. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father’s disappearance and discover the centuries-old truth behind their intense bond.

Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fate, together they race against time to unravel their past in order to save their future—and their lives.

A lot of people are freaked out by the fact that Hilary Duff wrote this, but I really think this sounds awesome. I'm definitely looking forward to it!


  1. Oooh, it sounds really intriguing. It looks like it has a lot of potential to be a great read, the plot sounds so detailed and unique. I definitely agree in giving it a chance. I'm so curious now after reading the synopsis~ :D

  2. Wow. Sounds great. Now I get to look forward to it too!

  3. It does sound pretty good...and I do like Hilary Duff. Though I'm really not found of the cover and the title. Elixir? And a bunch of flowers? HMMM.

  4. I think it sounds great, but I'm just worried about the fact that Hilary Duff wrote it. Somehow I get the feeling that she's not that great a writer and the only reason she even has a book deal is cos she's already famous, but hey, I could be wrong. In fact, I'm very much hoping that I'm wrong.

  5. Sounds interesting. I wouldn't mind picking it up to see what her writing is like. Good on her for branching out I reckon! Great pick

  6. I am with you, I think it sounds good...I want to pick it up, I just hope it is good and not something someone picked up JUST because she has a name, KWIM?

  7. i think it sounds like an average nothing particularly attention grabbing book. I'll let you read it & see how it is first.
