WoW Pick of the Week



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.


This weeks pick is very different from my normal pick. This one is a little dark and a little sinister sounding but I think that is what I love about it, it isn't my normal pick and I can't help but be drawn in by that cover and synopsis.

Plus, I have been wanting to try this author for awhile now and I think this just might be a good place to start.




Book Description:

Clementine DeVore spent ten years trapped in a cellar, pinned down by willow roots, silenced and forgotten.

Now she’s out and determined to uncover who put her in that cellar and why. 


When Clementine was a child, dangerous and inexplicable things started happening in New South Bend. The townsfolk blamed the fiendish people out in the Willows and burned their homes to the ground. But magic kept Clementine alive, walled up in the cellar for ten years, until a boy named Fisher sets her free. Back in the world, Clementine sets out to discover what happened all those years ago. But the truth gets muddled in her dangerous attraction to Fisher, the politics of New South Bend, and the Hollow, a fickle and terrifying place that seems increasingly temperamental ever since Clementine reemerged.

    1. I know, I did the same thing but I just didn't have the time to squeeze in another one. I figured I would just buy it instead. :P
