Waiting on Wednesday (97)

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:

Waiting on Wednesday (97)(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?

    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 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! 🙂

    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!

    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!
