“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!
This week in WoW I’m waiting on two YA novels that give me EPIC cover lust! Check out my top picks this week…
This Week’s Picks:
Title: These Shallow Graves
Author: Jennifer Donnelly
Expected Publication: October 27th 2015 by Random House Delacorte
Set in gilded age New York, These Shallow Graves follows the story of Josephine Montfort, an American aristocrat. Jo lives a life of old-money ease. Not much is expected of her other than to look good and marry well. But when her father dies due to an accidental gunshot, the gilding on Jo’s world starts to tarnish. With the help of a handsome and brash reporter, and a young medical student who moonlights in the city morgue, Jo uncovers the truth behind her father’s death and learns that if you’re going to bury the past, you’d better bury it deep.
This cover is to-die-for! I don’t even care that the blurb sounds iffy to me. I HAVE to know if this book is any good.
Title: After the Woods
Author: Kim Savage
Expected Publication: February 23rd 2016 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Janine O’Malley at Farrar, Straus and Giroux acquired a debut YA novel, After the Woods by former journalist Kim Savage, in a pre-empt. It’s a psychological thriller about two friends in the aftermath of an abduction, where one risked her life to save the other and spent a night in the woods she wants to forget. Now, nearly a year later, a girl’s body is found, and dark secrets are tearing the best friends apart. Publication is scheduled for 2016; Sara Crowe at Harvey Klinger did the two-book deal for world English rights.
WTF IS THIS BOOK ABOUT!!!!???!! Seriously, the blurb is so vague and intriguing I’ve got to know… #Bookgasm
What about you, what games or books are you waiting on?
