Waiting on Wednesday (48)

Sirenz by Charlotte Bennardo and Natalie Zaman
June 8, 2011
Bickering frenemies Meg and Shar are doing some serious damage at a midnight sample sale when they find themselves arguing over a pair of shoes—with fatal consequences. One innocent bystander later, the girls are suddenly at the mercy of Hades—the god of the underworld—himself. To make them atone for what they’ve done, Hades forces the teens to become special-assignment Sirens, luring to the Underworld any individual whose unholy contract is up.

But just because they have an otherworldly part-time job now doesn’t mean Meg and Shar can ignore life’s drudgeries (work) or pleasures (fashion!). Finding that delicate balance between their old and new responsibilities turns out to be harder than they expected, especially when an entire pantheon of Greek deities decides to get involved. Then there’s the matter of the fine print in their contracts . . . (taken from goodreads.com)

I have LOVED Greek mythology ever since I can remember. Seeing it combined with modern chick lit just makes me squeal with anticipation. This is definitely going on my to-read list for 2011 :)

This one sounds like a fun tongue-in-cheek approach to Greek mythology!
