My pick this week:
(Don't You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn
Published by HarperTeen on June 10th 2014
Genres: Mystery, Thriller, YA
Welcome to Gardnerville.
A place where no one gets sick. And no one ever dies.
There’s a price to pay for paradise. Every fourth year, the strange power that fuels the town exacts its payment by infecting teens with deadly urges. In a normal year in Gardnerville, teens might stop talking to their best friends. In a fourth year, they’d kill them.
Four years ago, Skylar’s sister, Piper, was locked away after leading sixteen of her classmates to a watery grave. Since then, Skylar has lived in a numb haze, struggling to forget her past and dull the pain of losing her sister. But the secrets and memories Piper left behind keep taunting Skylar—whispering that the only way to get her sister back is to stop Gardnerville’s murderous cycle once and for all.
Holy crap did you read this blurb!? O_O Kate’s last book, Another Little Piece, was such a strange book – in a good way – and probably one of the most unique stories I’ve ever read told in the most mysterious of ways so I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us with this one!
What are you waiting on?

I am so ready for this one. It sounds so deliciously creepy and unique.
What. The. F***. This sounds crazy…and I love it.

While I was lukewarm at best for Another Little Piece this one sounds amazing so I’m willing to give the Author another shot. Definitely sounds right up my alley at least. Great choice!
I saw this one last week and thought it looked really really good. great pick.

OK, this sounds twisted and all sorts of crazy. I haven’t read Kate’s first book, but I’ve been hearing great things about it.
Thanks for sharing, Giselle!
Shane @ Itching for Books
Lovely cover. Interesting description. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Wait… isn’t this an episode of Supernatural?
It made for a great episode, so I’m sure it will be a great book too!

After reading and loving Kate’s ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE, it’s safe to say that I’m definitely looking forward to her latest — which I have to admit sounds much better than her debut, heh. It sounds so intriguing and original. I hope it lives up to our expectations. Great pick, Giselle!
I love this cover so much! I still need to read her first book and I like creepy things so these sound great!
This actually gave me a litte bit of the chills. Super spooky blurb. A sentient town that exacts a price from its inhabitants? Creepy and yet alluring. Great choice!

woah, sounds awesome! Thanks so much for sharing. I think I’m going to like this one.
Everytime I read this title, I always start singing the song from The Breakfast Club! LOL.

Wow this sounds super intense. And it is weird that I can’t help reading the title and hearing the song in my head at the same time?
Wow, that blurb is so creepy, ooh I hope this turns out to be a good one!
Mary @ BookSwarm
WTF is wrong in Gardenville?!? (Damnit, now I have “Don’t you forget about me” echoing through my head. And now I want to watch The Breakfast Club…)

I love the sound of this book. I haven’t actually picked up Another Little Piece yet, but I’ve heard enough good things about the author to be excited about this upcoming book. And that cover! I wasn’t sure about it at first, but it sure is memorable. Great pick, Giselle! 🙂
Oh my, this sounds delightfully creepy.
This definitely sounds strange but if she pulled it off before then she can probably do it again! I love the cover!
This sounds incredibly creepy and reminds me a bit of Waking Dark. Totally going on my list. And I STILL need to read Another Little Piece too which also sounds amazing. 🙂 Great pick!
that sounds so good! i will definatly add it to my tbr pile.

Amanda @ Hell-Bent to Read
This book. I want it. Now.
This sounds very strange and dark and creepy—exactly what I expect and love from Kate! Totally adding this to my wish list, thanks for sharing!
