Waiting on Wednesday (152)

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

The thriller genre is addicting and fantastic. Books like The Rules for Disappearing, The Naturals series, The Masked Truth, and, most recently (for me at least), Damage Done have done a stellar job of representing the genre. For adult novels, Gone Girl was fucking insane, and I absolutely loved In the Woods. This genre is one I want to devour, gut, and take all the pieces from, and this book sounds like no exception. I bloody want it, and I want it now.

There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.

Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the face of her demons–and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.

Tessa and Callie haven’t talked about what they saw that summer night since it happened. After the trial Callie drifted and Tessa moved and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.

But ever since she left, Tessa’s had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette–to Wyatt Stokes sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the only other person who may be hiding the truth.

Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer–and this time, it won’t be as easy to run away.

This excerpt over on Entertainment Weekly, complete with scavenger hunt-like goodies (which are super freaking cool), is what really drew me in and made me WANT this book.

  8. Ohhh, this blurb is mysterious and just hits the right notes of creepy and intriguing. Here's mine: it's a biography of a bisexual boxer, and its heartbreaking.
