Waiting on Wednesday 2-6-13

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.

This week my WoW pick is The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman. For one I love this cover, and two, it sounds awesome!!

  • Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers (Imprint of Random House)
  • Publication date: 9/10/2013
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.

Ummm hell yeah!! Doesn't this sound friggin' amazing!! I am totally pining for this one and can't wait for September!!! 

What are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments and I will visit you back!

  11. HOLY CRAP. HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS BEFORE?! This sounds SO awesome and creepy and mysterious and I want it I want it now. I haven't read Wasserman's The Book of Blood and Shadow, but I've heard great things about it from Giselle, so I'm looking forward to this! I think I have an ARC of TBoBaS, but I'm too lazy to check. Awesome pick, Amy!
