Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!
What book am I not-so-patiently-waiting-for this week? The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson!!
"Girls started vanishing in the fall, and now winter's come to lay a white sheet over the horror. Door County, it seems, is swallowing the young, right into its very dirt. From beneath the house on Water Street, I've watched the danger swell.
The residents know me as the noises in the house at night, the creaking on the stairs. I'm the reflection behind them in the glass, the feeling of fear in the cellar. I'm tied—it seems—to this house, this street, this town.
I'm tied to Maggie and Pauline, though I don't know why. I think it's because death is coming for one of them, or both.
All I know is that the present and the past are piling up, and I am here to dig.I am looking for the things that are buried.
From bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson comes a friendship story bound in snow and starlight, a haunting mystery of love, betrayal, redemption, and the moments that we leave behind."
Why am I eagerly awaiting The Vanishing Season? Well, I've heard so many great things about the author's other book, Tiger Lily, but it's a retelling and I'm not usually very keen on those. But when I read the summary for this one it sounded very intriguing and creepy and much more down my alley, so I cannot wait to check it out!
What are you all (im)patiently awaiting this week?
Agree on this one -- sounds so spooky!ReplyDelete

I still need to read Tiger Lily, too. I bought it quite a while ago when it was on sale for Kindle, but haven't had a chance to get it yet. I'll probably end up reading The Vanishing Season first!ReplyDelete
I think I'm gonna give this one a try first, since retellings are not so much my thing!Delete
I am patiently waiting for this one, too! After reading Tiger Lily, I am automatically a fan of the author. She's so good at building up the atmosphere and telling stories in a heartfelt way. I can't wait to read this one!ReplyDelete
