Waiting On Wednesday (22)

Time for the"Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Waiting on Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton
To be Published: May 24th 2011 by Random House

For Nick Pardee and Silla Kennicot, the cemetery is the center of everything.

Nick is a city boy angry at being forced to move back to the nowhere town of Yaleylah, Missouri where he grew up. He can’t help remembering his mom and the blood magic she practiced – memories he’s tried for five years to escape. Silla, though, doesn’t want to forget; her parents’ apparent murder-suicide left her numb and needing answers. When a book of magic spells in her dad’s handwriting appears on her doorstep, she sees her chance to unravel the mystery of their deaths.

Together they plunge into the world of dark magic, but when a hundred-year-old blood witch comes hunting for the bones of Silla’s parents and the spell book, Nick and Silla will have to let go of everything they believe about who they are, the nature of life and death, and the deadly secrets that hide in blood.

I think the synopsis of this book sounds intriguing and I love the cover!  Not to mention it was written by Tessa Gratton who wrote this (which I love and REALLY want to read as an entire book) and it has been rated with five stars on Goodreads by Maggie Stiefvater and Brenna Yovanoff.  Obviously it must be amazing.  Can't wait!

What book are YOU waiting on?

I can't wait to read this one either! It's always great when other authors love certain books as well.
