My pick this week:
Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff
Published by Razorbill on 2014
Genres: Thriller, YA
A creepily atmospheric new novel from the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of THE REPLACEMENT
Clementine DeVore spent ten years trapped in a cellar, pinned down by willow roots, silenced and forgotten. Now she’s out and determined to uncover who put her in that cellar and why.
When Clementine was a child, dangerous and inexplicable things started happening in New South Bend. The townsfolk blamed the fiendish people out in the Willows and burned their homes to the ground. But magic kept Clementine alive, walled up in the cellar for ten years, until a boy named Fisher sets her free. Back in the world, Clementine sets out to discover why her childhood was taken from her. But the truth gets muddled in her attraction to Fisher, the politics of New South Bend and the hollow, a fickle and terrifying place that seems increasingly temperamental ever since Clementine reemerged.
A new Brenna Yovanoff!! Yay! Paper Valentine is the only one I read from her but it was so well written – kind of gothic-y and creepy. I loved it. But even if it wasn’t an author that I know could rock it, this premise sounds right up my alley! And I mean, look at that cover! <3 [br]
What are you waiting on?

Gah, that cover and the story, it sounds amazing! I tried to read Paper Valentine, but I had to take it back to the library and ran out of time. This one I will read though!

Damn that cover is creepy. I’ve only read Paper Valentine as well but I enjoyed that one so this is now on my TBR!
Thanks for sharing, Giselle! <33
The description and that cover together makes it look good, and I so want to read it! I still haven’t read anything by this author yet, but someday I will!

I haven’t heard of this one before. I love creepy reads and this one certainly sounds like it’ll fit the bill. Nice choice!
Mary @ BookSwarm
OMG. I’m in love with that cover. I bet the final will have silver foil on it. I may just order it for the cover alone (*cough* Cover ‘Ho *cough*) though the story sounds awesome, too.
Nick @ Nick's Book Blog
I love that cover. It has such a creepy feel to it. I haven’t read anything by this author although I’ve heard good things.

That’s a creepy cover!!! Love it!

I haven’t read anything by this author yet, but I really really want to! 😀
Interesting pick. It sounds good and creepy.
This sounds SUPER creepy! Great pick Giselle!
I haven’t read any of Yovanoff’s books yet (though I have THE REPLACEMENT and an ARC of PAPER VALENTINE), but I came across this cover yesterday and because of the cover I want to read it. It’s pretty. And AWESOME.
Rachel @ Unforgettable Books
Sounds scary. Hope you like it as much as PV! I like the Gothic style too.
Oh wow that is one creepy summary and cover! Definitely going on the list, great pick!
I’ve never read a Brenna Yovanoff novel before, but this one looks fantastically creepy. Just the kind of novel I love. I’ll definitely check this out once it’s released.
Jenea @ Books Live Forever
Oooh, I saw this the other day, love it! It sounds like it is going to be so creepy-good. Awesome pick.

I didn’t realise this had a cover already! I don’t really like the look of it, in all honesty (it’s probably the font), but I love the sound of the book. I’ve only read Paper Valentine by Yovanoff, and although I had some mixed feelings about it, I did like it overall. Hopefully this one will be good! 🙂 Great pick, Giselle.
Oh that cover… Creepy much!! :O
I’ve not heard of the author or this novel before, but thanks for introducing it, Giselle! 😀
Awesome pick, Giselle! <33
I still haven’t read anything by her, but she does have some of the coolest covers (the one for The Replacement is amazing). This one is so cool, too, and the story sounds interesting. Great pick!
I have yet to read Brenna Yovanoff but have heard so many great things about her books. This one sounds great and I also like the creepy cover!
I saw the cover and fell in love with it! So yeah, also added to my TBR list! It looks so creepy but beautiful somehow!
