The big day is tomorrow! Do you have your candy purchased, or your costumes picked out? I hope so! Anyway, today is Wednesday, which means, of course, another Waiting on Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It highlights the books that we are most anxiously awaiting!
This week my WoW is...
This Wicked Game by Michelle Zink
Release Date: November 14th, 2013
Here's the summary from Goodreads: Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years. The voodoo business. Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret. She doesn’t believe. Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s powerful founding family. But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets the eye. Including her own. As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her.
Sounds pretty exciting! The whole voodoo aspect is gaining in popularity in YA lit, so I'm looking forward to seeing how this one turns out. What are y'all waiting on this October Wednesday?
