Waiting on Wednesday #7 - 30 November 2011

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Waiting on Wednesday is one of the harder memes for me to participate in, since I am notoriously impatient and there are SO MANY books that I simply can NOT wait for. This week, however, I have a clear winner:

Phoebe Kitandis

 What if you forgot your identity and had to rely on other people to tell you who you were?

And what if to discover your true self, you first had to unravel a mystery so big and terrifying you were not sure you’d survive solving it?

When Marshall and Elyse wake up in each other’s arms with zero memory of how they got there or who they are, it’s the start of a long journey through their separate pasts and shared future.

Terrified by their amnesia, the two make a pact to work together to find the answers that could jog their missing memories. As they piece together clues, they discover they’re in the idyllic mountain resort town of Summer Falls, where everyone seems mysteriously happy, but as Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town’s perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything—not the death of Marshall’s mom, not the hidden shame in Elyse’s family, not even the day-to-day anguish of high school.

Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marsh and Elyse fall into an intense relationship...but the secrets they uncover could be the death of this growing love—and the death of everyone, and everything, they love in Summer Falls

Besides being the name of one of the kick-ass-in-a-creepy-way girl tributes in The Hunger Games, Glimmer just sounds incredible, doesn't it? I just finished reading Whisper by this author and now I simply cannot wait to devour any other work she may produce.

So, what are you waiting on?

  9. Despite my fetish for flesh-eating zombies, the kind that just stare off into lala land can be equally creepy. And if the author impressed you the first time around, I can't imagine how antsy you are for this one.
