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 read looks perfect for this time of year and even though it doesn't come out until next year, I can't wait to read it and I just know I will be starting it sooner rather than later.





Book Description:
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. 




What do you think, does this look like something you might like as well?

  10. When I saw the cover, I thought it was pretty. But it grabbed more of my attention when I read the summary!! I keep thinking the heroine is a zombie. I mean what else wakes up after being dead for one year? Lol

  17. This does sound unique. I do have a problem with this and that is-the main character is dead. So no happy ending for her. I may still read it because it does sound good
