Waiting on Wednesday

Posted June 2, 2011 by Kara in Uncategorized / 4 Comments

I haven’t done a Waiting on Wednesday post in awhile and I don’t know if anyone really cares, but I’m in a blogging mood. There are a lot of books that I am really excited about coming out soon, so I figured I would highlight some of them. We’ll see how many I get to before I pass out. It’s a challenge. I’m also drinking red wine.:)

First up:

Title: Frost
Author: Marianna Baer
Publisher: Balzer & Bray
Release Date: September 13

Goodreads Summary:
Leena Thomas’s senior year at boarding school begins with a shock: Frost House, her cozy dorm of close friends, has been assigned an unexpected roommate — confrontational, eccentric Celeste Lazar. But while Leena’s anxiety about a threat to her sanctuary proves valid, it becomes less and less clear whether the threat lies with her new roommate, within Leena’s own mind, or within the very nature of Frost House itself. Mysterious happenings in the dorm, an intense triangle between Leena, Celeste, and Celeste’s brother, and the reawakening of childhood fears, all push Leena to take increasingly desperate measures to feel safe. FROST is the story of a haunting. As to whether the demons are supernatural or psychological…well, which answer would let you sleep at night?

I think that’s good for now. There are so many more to list, but I think I’ll stop at five and do more next week. I am dying to read all of these books. What’s on your dying to read list?

  1. Okay, your first pick is one of the books I’m absolutely dying to read! It looks so interesting. And then when I saw it in people’s BEA piles I thought I’d faint. Frost sounds like an amazing book.

    And I love how you arranged your covers – from a blue/grey, to black/white, to black/white/red to red/white. Really awesome. Visually it makes me want all of these books!

  2. How fabulous is that cover for The Carrier of the Mark? The artist did a great job, that is captivating. I would buy based on cover alone.
