Waiting On Wednesday - Sept. 30, 2009

This weekly event is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we get to share which upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

My pick for this week is:


The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting, release date of March 16, 2010

From Goodreads:

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her “power” to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he’s claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping that Jay’s intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she’s falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.

I haven't actually found this cover art anywhere else except on Goodreads, but the premise sounds very cool and I can't wait to get my hands on it! What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Mel - I know, I originally picked it because of the cover, but it sounds like it will be interesting reading, too...sometimes you have to judge a book by its cover, lol.

Ann Marie - thanks for stopping by! Watch out for your TBR list growing immensely on Wednesdays ;-)
