Waiting on Wednesday #13


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is for Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff (Razorbill):

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.

Why I’m looking forward to this book:

Admittedly, it was the cover that first got my attention! I have never read a book by Brenna Yovanoff, although I have one of them (The Space Between) on my to-read list. This book seems to have a lot of interesting elements, from the killer on the loose, to the ghost haunting the main character, to the infatuation with someone who she shouldn’t be interested in. And there’s no mention of a love triangle which makes this book get automatic bonus points from me!

Release Date: January 8, 2013

    Oooh, I think I saw this one around the other week and totally forgot to add it to my wishlist. So thanks for reminding me.

    I’ve never read a book by the author either.

    However, this book really does sound brilliant. It looks like it has a little bit of everything and I’m sure it will make a thrilling read.
