Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books we are looking forward to being released.
My pick for this week is:
Title: The Dirt on Ninth Grave
Author: Darynda Jones
Expected pub. date: January 12th, 2016
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy
Warning: This is the ninth installment in a series and the description contains spoilers for the previous books.
In a small village in New York lives Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she's more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.
But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her—even from her new and trusted friends—the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn't help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she's lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.
Why am I waiting for this book? For a book series to hold my interest for eight books is pretty impressive, for it not being YA is downright astounding. This is the ninth book is the Charley Davidson series, which is kind of my guilty pleasure. I just can't get enough of the mixture between soap opera(ish) drama and the paranormal elements. The protagonist has to be the most sarcastic and funniest character I've ever encountered and I just love her to pieces. The world is fantastic and every book comes with new challenges and each time the stakes seem to get higher so I can't wait for it to be out!
