Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Author: Rin Chupeco
Release date: August 5, 2014
Synopsis from Goodreads:
You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.
A dead girl walks the streets.
She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.
And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.
Because the boy has a terrifying secret – one that would just kill to get out.
Why I’m Excited:
This book is being marketed as “Dexter” meets “The Grudge”. Now, I wasn’t a huge fan of “The Grudge” but that still sounds incredible. I love a good horror novel, and this will probably be my first YA horror novel. I think it sounds super creepy and amazing, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. I’m so excited for it that I even convinced the library where I work to order it. Woo! I’ll probably be buying my own copy though because it sounds so good. Plus, just look at that cover; you know I’m a sucker for a good cover.
