Waiting on Wednesday: The Mirk and Midnight Hour

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...

Publisher: Knopf BYR
Publish Date: March 11, 2014
Genre: YA, Paranormal Thriller
Pages: 384

Seventeen-year-old Violet Dancey has been left at home in Mississippi with a laudanum-addicted stepmother and love-crazed stepsister while her father fights in the war—a war that has already claimed her twin brother.

When she comes across a severely injured Union soldier lying in an abandoned lodge deep in the woods, things begin to change. Thomas is the enemy—one of the men who might have killed her own brother—and yet she's drawn to him. But Violet isn't Thomas's only visitor; someone has been tending to his wounds—keeping him alive—and it becomes chillingly clear that this care hasn't been out of compassion. Against the dangers of war and ominous powers of voodoo, Violet must fight to protect her home and the people she loves.
There is something about this time period that completely and utterly fascinates me. Add in one hell of a  creepy locale for a story, and you've pretty much got me hook, line and sinker. The Mirk and Midnight Hour sounds as though it's the perfect blend of what I love to read. It's got the creepy, sinister mystery that I love so much, magic, voodoo and a whole mess of dark and otherworldly things to contend with. Oh yeah, and that cover is eerie...and awesome. Yes, please! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?


  1. I love this cover and it sounds so good! I haven't heard a lot about it yet, but I'm hoping it's better than its predecessor.

  2. Ooh this one sounds really interesting- I will be trying this series out soon. I have heard mixed things but the cover has lured me in.

    Great pick, hun! <33

  3. Oh I can't wait for this one either!

  5. What a gorgeous cover and an enticing premise! This is the first time I'm hearing of this, but it sounds amazing.
    I love historical books as well and include in a creepy factor and forbidden romance, I'm in!
    Thanks for sharing, Melissa.

  6. Ooooo this one is new to me Melissa but count me in! I'm fascinated by this time period as well, and this just sounds like it's going to be one of those haunting, atmospheric reads and I love those so much! Thanks for spotlighting this one, I'm sold:)

  7. I'm definitely reading this one. Great post.

  8. That cover alone pulls me in with a gothic-y, creepy feel...and then there's the blurb. Oh, yeah. I'm on it.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I always do my very best to return the favour :)
