Waiting on Wednesday (68)

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:

One Dark Between
Sonia Gensler
Release date: August 2013
by Knopf Books for Young Readers

A supernatural romance about the powers that lie in the shadows of the mind, perfect for fans of Sarah Rees Brennan, Alyxandra Harvey, and Libba Bray.

At the turn of the twentieth century, Spiritualism and séances are all the rage—even in the scholarly town of Cambridge, England. While mediums dupe the grief-stricken, a group of local fringe scientists seeks to bridge the gap to the spirit world by investigating the dark corners of the human mind.

Each running from a shadowed past, Kate, Asher, and Elsie take refuge within the walls of Summerfield College. But their peace is soon shattered by the discovery of a dead body nearby. Is this the work of a flesh-and-blood villain, or is something otherworldly at play? This unlikely trio must illuminate what the scientists have not, and open a window to secrets taken to the grave—or risk joining the spirit world themselves.

There is just something about Gothic thrillers that I love! Nothing can beat the chill of a great Gothic novel. It’s an old-fashioned chilling-creepy, none of that cheap made-for-Hollywood thrill we have to settle with, now. I love the atmosphere and they often completely enamor me, and THIS? Well this just sounds freaky as heck!

What are you waiting on this week?

    I don’t have a WoW post this week, but I love Gothic thrillers too! (If I had to choose a WoW, it would probably be BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA for some of the same reasons you’ve written.) I also see that you’re currently reading THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER and can’t wait to read your review on that one :).

    I’m stumbling across more an more books about séances lately (Blackbirds, Born of Illusion) and this one is a great addition to my gowing list! Thanks for pointing it out 🙂

    Ohh this sounds fantastic! Not a huge fan of the cover. I like the picture frames and the black and white walls. I don’t like the bright yellow and the typography just is weird, but it seems like a book I would really like.

    This sort of reminds me of THE DIVINERS, which I absolutely ADORED. Great pick, Giselle! Your Waiting on Wednesdays never fail to impress me, honestly. 😉

    What a pretty cover, and the books sounds good too.

    I’m looking forward to your review of The Madman’s Daughter–I’ve seen this book crop up all over the place!

    I love this book! I haven’t read it yet, but I love it! I haven’t heard of it, either, but I’ll definitely be adding this to my TBR pile and keep a close eye on this one. Great pick! (And I love the cover)

    Oh my, this one sounds really scary. :O I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN HANDLE IT. 😉 The whole Gothic feel definitely sounds interesting and now I’m going to have to keep my eyelids peeled to see if I can get a copy early. 😉 Thanks for letting me know about this book! Great pick, Giselle. 🙂
