Waiting on Wednesday #44


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 I’m Waiting on Wednesday for The Dark Between by Sonia Gensler (Knopf Books for Young Readers):

darkbetweenAt the turn of the twentieth century, Spiritualism and séances are all the rage—even in the scholarly town of Cambridge, England. While mediums dupe the grief-stricken, a group of local fringe scientists seeks to bridge the gap to the spirit world by investigating the dark corners of the human mind.

Each running from a shadowed past, Kate, Asher, and Elsie take refuge within the walls of Summerfield College. But their peace is soon shattered by the discovery of a dead body nearby. Is this the work of a flesh-and-blood villain, or is something otherworldly at play? This unlikely trio must illuminate what the scientists have not, and open a window to secrets taken to the grave—or risk joining the spirit world themselves.


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

Admittedly the cover isn’t doing much for me, but this book sounds wonderfully creepy, doesn’t it? I like ghost stories, and particularly ones that involve the early 20th century. The full synopsis also calls this one “perfect” for fans of Libba Bray, and I am certainly one of those! My pick last week was a historical as well, and as I said then, I just love those, especially if they can really put the reader in the time and place the book is set. All I know is this just sounds awesome!

Release Date: August 27, 2013
