Waiting on Wednesday: Arrows by Melissa Gorzelanczyk

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!


     A modern cupid story set in present-day Wisconsin combining the fantastical elements of Greek mythology with the contemporary drama of MTV's Teen Mom.     People don’t understand love. If they did, they’d get why dance prodigy Karma Clark just can’t say goodbye to her boyfriend, Danny. No matter what he says or does or how he hurts her, she can’t stay angry with him . . . and can’t stop loving him. But there’s a reason why Karma is helpless to break things off: she’s been shot with a love arrow.
     Aaryn, son of Cupid, was supposed to shoot both Karma and Danny but found out too late that the other arrow in his pack was useless. And with that, Karma’s life changed forever. One pregnancy confirmed. One ballet scholarship lost. And dream after dream tossed to the wind.
     A clueless Karma doesn’t know that her toxic relationship is Aaryn’s fault . . . but he’s going to get a chance to make things right. He’s here to convince Danny to man up and be there for Karma. But what if this god from Mount Olympus finds himself falling in love with a beautiful dancer from Wisconsin who can never love him in return?
      This fast-paced debut novel explores the internal & external conflicts of a girl who finds herself inexplicably drawn to a boy who seemingly doesn't reciprocate her  feelings, touching on the issues of love, sex and responsibility, with a heroine struggling to control her destiny--perfect for fans of Katie McGarry's novels and MTV’s 16 and Pregnant.

Why I'm Waiting: I'm a sucker for ANYTHING with mythology and this one sounds AMAZEBALLS!!!! I actually wrote a story KIND OF like this one when I was in high school for my AP English 4 class. MAYBE I will post it under a Beyond the Book post after I've read it. Another thing that has me itching to read this is the fact that there is a teen pregnancy and I love those books. It will make it even more unique than it already is! Can't wait to read it! 

What are you waiting on this weekend?
Will you be waiting on this with me?

  1. Nice pick! But I can't help but wonder why they're calling it a cupid story, with Greek mythology when Cupid was the Roman god of love. His Greek name was Eros.

    But other than that little mixup, it sounds like a cute read! LOL! Sorry, as I was reading the words started nagging at me and I'm like that's not right! LOL! Hope you enjoy it thoroughly once you read it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!
