Waiting on Wednesday (9)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine and it's used to showcase the upcoming releases we're excited about.

The cover is tantalizing... but when I read the summary I KNEW I had to read it once it came out. It sounds amazing! Just read, just read:

Struck (Struck #1) by Jennifer Bosworth
Mia Price is a lightning addict. She’s survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her.
Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come.
Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn’t who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.

That cover is tantalizing -- and I love that word you used for it, Sophie!! :) When I think "lightning addict," I think "dangerous" so I have a feeling that this is going to be one of those fast-paced, dangerous, and completely cool reads! There are a lot of mixed reviews about this book, but I'm still excited to find out what happens to Mia! :)

Amazing pick for your WOW this week as always, Sophie! ♥ I hope you have an beautiful Wednesday!
