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: Shallow Graves
Author: Kali Walace
Expected pub. date: January 26th, 2016
Genre: YA Paranormal Horror
For fans of Holly Black and Nova Ren Suma, a gripping, hauntingly atmospheric novel about murder, revenge, and a world where monsters—human and otherwise—lurk at the fringes.
When seventeen-year-old Breezy Lin wakes up in a shallow grave one year after her death, she doesn’t remember who killed her or why. All she knows is that she’s somehow conscious—and not only that, she’s able to sense who around her is hiding a murderous past. In life, Breezy was always drawn to the elegance of the universe and the mystery of the stars. Now she must set out to find answers and discover what is to become of her in the gritty, dangerous world to which she now belongs—where killers hide in plain sight and a sinister cult is hunting for strange creatures like her. What she finds is at once empowering, redemptive, and dangerous.
Tense, complex, and wholly engaging, Shallow Graves is a stunning first novel from Kali Wallace.
Why am I waiting for this book? I don't usually keep track of debut authors and most of the time I end up reading the new book or new series by an old favorite author, but next year I plan on deliberately reading a few debut novels to get me out of my comfort zone and give a new author a try. This one sounds really good, the theme being paranormal is something I know I like, but the concept seems original enough to be its own new thing, so I'm really excited to give this one a chance.
What do you think of my pick for this week WOW?
