Waiting On Wednesday: Paper Valentine

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I am eagerly awaiting so many it was very hard to choose which one I was going to spotlight today. In honor of Halloween I have chosen one of the creepiest books on my to-read list.

Paper Valentine
Release Date: January 8th 2013
Synopsis: The city of Ludlow is gripped by the hottest July on record. The asphalt is melting, the birds are dying, petty crime is on the rise, and someone in Hannah Wagnor’s peaceful suburban community is killing girls. 
For Hannah, the summer is a complicated one. Her best friend Lillian died six months ago, and Hannah just wants her life to go back to normal. But how can things be normal when Lillian’s ghost is haunting her bedroom, pushing her to investigate the mysterious string of murders? 
Hannah’s just trying to understand why her friend self-destructed, and where she fits now that Lillian isn't there to save her a place among the social elite. And she must stop thinking about Finny Boone, the big, enigmatic delinquent whose main hobbies seem to include petty larceny and surprising acts of kindness. With the entire city in a panic, Hannah soon finds herself drawn into a world of ghost girls and horrifying secrets. She realizes that only by confronting the Valentine Killer will she be able move on with her life—and it’s up to her to put together the pieces before he strikes again. 
Paper Valentine is a hauntingly poetic tale of love and death by the New York Times bestselling author of The Replacement and The Space Between.

Why can't I wait?
We don't have nearly enough young adult books centered around ghosts! The only one I can think of is Anna Dressed In Blood. If someone asked you to bring them a ghost book you'd bring them a horror right? Well it is always refreshing to see a non-horror ghost book! Plus it looks perfectly creepy but will sadly not be released in time for Halloween...
