Waiting on Wednesday (73)

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 Waking Dark
Robin Wasserman
Genre: YA Horror
Release date: September 10th 2013
by Knopf Books for Young Readers

They called it the killing day. Twelve people dead, all in the space of a few hours. Five murderers: neighbors, relatives, friends. All of them so normal. All of them seemingly harmless. All of them now dead by their own hand . . . except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town. She doesn’t even know why she killed—or whether she’ll do it again.

Something is waking in the sleepy town of Oleander’s, Kansas—something dark and hungry that lives in the flat earth and the open sky, in the vengeful hearts of upstanding citizens. As the town begins its descent into blood and madness, five survivors of the killing day are the only ones who can stop Oleander from destroying itself. Jule, the outsider at war with the world; West, the golden boy at war with himself; Daniel, desperate for a different life; Cass, who’s not sure she deserves a life at all; and Ellie, who believes in sacrifice, fate, and in evil. Ellie, who always goes too far. They have nothing in common. They have nothing left to lose. And they have no way out. Which means they have no choice but to stand and fight, to face the darkness in their town—and in themselves.

I Loooved The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin and as soon as I saw this was from her, AND it’s a horror/mystery, umm yeah I’m flipping out for this!!

What are you waiting on, this Wednesday?

    I keep saying this, but it’s true! You always find the best ones. There’s nothing I like more than a creepy, sleepy little town atmosphere. And it helps that the cover is absolutely gorgeous, doesn’t it? So excited about this one now.
