Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting! This week I am waiting on....

The Weeping
by O'Dell Hutchison

Twenty years ago, Catherine Whitley was the victim of a horrible crime. Betrayed by her friends, including the boy she loved, she was left to die when the Rock Harbor Opera House caught fire, taking a disturbing secret with her to her grave. 

Seventeen-year-old Heath Ingram was driving the night his Jeep careened off the road, killing three of his closest friends. Once a popular, outgoing athlete, Heath now suffers from severe depression and crippling anxiety. His parents decide to send him to stay with his uncle in Rock Harbor, Oregon for the summer, praying that by getting away he will be able to put this awful tragedy behind him. 

When Heath starts working at the newly renovated Rock Harbor Opera House, he meets Molly, a young dancer who awakens in him a desire to start over and move on. But, when he begins having visions of a half-burned girl in a white dress, he starts to think he may be slipping even further over the edge. 

As the apparent hauntings become more intense, Heath begins to fear for his safety. With the help of his friend Josie, Heath discovers an unsettling secret that ties the mysterious girl to both their families. When two of their friends die unexpectedly, Josie and Heath realize that something, or someone, is after the children of those who wronged Catherine, and they are next.

LOVE THE PEOPLE ON THE COVER! Already on Blog tour for this one! Hope that it's not too creepy because I get scared very easily!

Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf? 

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others. 

Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?
Expected publication: April 3rd 2012 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 



  1. I am totally looking forward to reading Grave Mercy! Great picks for your WoW!

    Magical Urban Fantasy Reads

  2. Grave Mercy is one of the first historically-based YA novels I've read where the history aspect doesn't take a back seat to the plot/romance...and it is far from dull as a result. Rest assured, this book has romance a-plenty. It's also got some fantastic--and cinematic (watch out Hunger Games!)--action scenes, some truly complex and interesting characters (including the two leads), wonderful attention to detail, and some great writing to top it all off. As someone who studied Medieval French and Bretagne literature, history, and myths in college, I can say this book really gets it right down to the spelling of the names. Yes, liberties have been taken as this is a fiction/supernatural novel, but it's all very artfully woven. So aside from some of the more obvious areas (young, hot, martial arts-trained novitiates, anyone?), it can be hard to know when the fiction stops and the non-fiction starts.

    1. I have this sitting on my shelf..I think it's time for me to read it :)
