So I don't have a Wish List Wednesday this week but this novel is teetering on the edge of being on it. It’s also the first time that I’ve come across a photo for the cover so I’m sharing it here.
Personally I really like the cover and I think it’s rather gorgeous. It would definitely make me pick it up off a shelf if I saw it. It has this whole good vs. evil thing going on for it and it’s playing a little with the whole “devil on your shoulder” idea.

Summary: What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.
Anna, a tender-hearted southern girl, was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger,
but it isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage, and her will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.
A cross-country trip forces Anna and Kai to face the reality that hope and love are not options for their kind. When it's time for Anna to confront her demons, will she choose to embrace her halo or her horns?
What do you think? Are you going to add this one to your To Read list? As an added bonus, it's also a 2012 debut YA novel.
I'll admit, though, that I'm a little tired of the Angel trend BUT this one seems different than most so more than likely I'm going to give it a try! Plus, the first five chapters are posted online at Inkpop so it's easy to get a real taste of the novel*!
*I read the first five chapters and I'll admit that I want more to see how some things pan out. However, I worry that it may fall into the same old, same old patterns concerning angels in YA fiction.
