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):
At 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
What are you waiting on this week? Please link me!
Ooh, this does sound wonderfully creepy, you’re right. And I loved The Diviners, so I’m definitely going to have to add this one to my TBR list!
OH this was my wow a few weeks ago too and I think the cover changed slightly since. But it’s still uber freaking creepy and I can’t wait to get my grabby hands on it! :D
Yes, this does sound totally creepy and like a perfect fall read. Hope you love it!
I love the concept of this one, I’m hoping it doesn’t disappoint. Great pick!

Ohhh, sounds creepy! I am definitely checking this book out. Great pick!
Love the cover!
A great cover and pick.
This one sounds creepy, but good. That cover kind of freaks me out a little. Not sure why.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE ghost stories. They are my favorites, and I absolutely have to read this one. But I don’t want to wait until August! Ugh!
I know, right? Why can’t it be available now? Of course, it’s not that I don’t have plenty to read in the mean time. :)
I agree with you on both the cover and how the book sounds. Added it to my TBR!
Thanks for the recommendation! This isn’t the genre that I usually go for, but the synopsis definitely sounds interesting. And I have to agree – the cover could use some work. **New Follower**

I love the cover! Especially the expression on the model’s face. I hope it’s superawesome.
Her facial expression is probably the only thing I actually like about it. :-P Of course, it may actually be more striking in person!
Great choice, I will definitely read this when it comes out : )
my WOW and international giveaway
