Waiting on Wednesday #51


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Velveteen by Daniel Marks
Publisher: Random House Children's Books
Expected Publication: October 9th, 2012
Pages: 464
Goodreads Summary:
Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that's not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it's not a fiery inferno, it's certainly no heaven. It's gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn't leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what's really on her mind.

Bonesaw.

Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she's figured out just how to do it. She'll haunt him for the rest of his days. It'll be brutal... and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen's obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she's willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules . . . or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

Wow, doesn't this sound awesome? Creepy and dark, but oh-so-unique. Ever since I first saw it last week, I cannot stop thinking about it - need to get my hands on a copy of it as soon as possible.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  5. Have you watched the author's youtube vids? they are SO funny and incredibly insightful. He is very cool and I can't wait to read Velveteen. The synopsis sounds amazingly creepy and cool. And I love books that take place either in heaven, purgatory or hell to see how the author envisions them. Thanks for sharing, Carina :)

    The cover is really cool, too!

  39. Hmm... I've seen this around a bit, but I'm still unsure whether to add it or not. I'm usually weary when it comes to scary/creepy books, but if you read it I'll be waiting to hear what you think of it. Maybe then you'll convince me! ;)
