Distractive Obsessions #08

Distractive Obsessions are books that are going to be released very soon and that I'm dying to read - books that I know I'm going to be obsessed with until I'll finally hold them in my hands and read them.

This week's pick is OF POSEIDON by Anna Banks.
It's going to be published on May 22nd, 2012 by Feiwel & Friends.
ISBN: 9781250003324 | pre-order: The Book Depository / Amazon / B&N

Goodreads Summary:
Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma’s gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . .

Told from both Emma and Galen’s points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

I remember falling love with the cover and synopsis of Of Poseidon immediately when I first saw it. But within the past few weeks so many fabulous and positive reviews have started to appear on many, many blogs that it's almost impossible for me to resist the urge to put down my current read and pick up my eARC of Of Poseidon. This is why I can't wait to put it onto my tbr-pile for the next week and hopefully be swept away by its awesomeness.

Which book are you obsessing over at the moment?
