Waiting on Wednesday (41)

Posted by

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. 
My pick this week:

The Gathering Dark

Christine Johnson
Release date: February 12th, 2013
by Simon Pulse

Keira’s hallucinating. First it’s a door hovering above the road; then it’s a tree in her living room. But with her parents fighting and her best friend not speaking to her, Keira can’t tell anyone about her breakdown. Until she meets Walker. They have an electric connection—and somehow it’s as if he can see the same shadowy images.

The more Keira slowly confides in Walker, the more intense—and frightening—her visions become. Trusting him may be more dangerous than Keira could have ever imagined. Because Walker is not what he appears to be—and neither are her visions

I decided I would step away from post-apocalypse novels this week, and pick something more unique. I noticed this book earlier today and when I saw it had to do with strange hallucinations and visions – which always fascinates – it went on my TBR list immediately. Plus, that lovely cover surely helps!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    This is totally going on my wish list!! Books featuring hallucinations and dreams always fascinate me!! And the cover is so gorgeous too!! <3 Awesome choice, Giselle! 🙂

  2. Danny

    This cover screams Fairies to me! But, I love that the synopsis is actually not telling me what it is about! Sounds awesome, totally added to my pile!

  3. Lexie

    Definitely agreed! While I fear that this ~electric connection~ might stray into the cheesy and cliche, I think if this is done well, it could be really eerie and wonderful. And yeah, that cover certainly doesn’t hurt. It’s so haunting and lovely.

  4. Katie @ BlookGirl

    Oh wow, I love that cover. I thought I already had this on my GR List, but apparently not. For some reason, never noticed how pretty it is! I also love that unique synopsis 🙂

    I chose a different type of story this week, too. Sometimes it’s nice to have a break from what we typically read.

    Great pick, muffin! <3

    Here’s my WoW!

    My Wow

  6. Amy

    This sounds awesome!! We both picked something different than usual this week. 🙂 I went with a contemporary for the first time. This one is going on my TBR list. You always find the best books!!

  7. Bookworm1858

    Characters with visions seem to be a popular topic; I think I’ve already seen a few other WOW posts with different books featuring visions. Maybe that will be the hot new trend in YA? We’ll have to wait and see how these books do.


  8. Sam

    Yes! I’m really looking forward to this book! The premise sounds fantastic and a lovely cover doesn’t hurt. 😉 Great pick!

  9. Leanne

    I agree, the cover is gorgeous; the premise is so intriguing and haunting. I would definitely read this too whenever I want a break from the usual YA fantasy/ dystopian novels I read. 🙂

    My Waiting on Wednesday is here!

    Ohh. I seriously LOVE your WOW posts. Haha, I basically always shelve them on Goodreads. 😉 This is another one I think sounds fantastic and have to add to the shelf! Great pick. 🙂
