Waiting on Wednesday: House of Ivy & Sorrow

Wednesday, November 13, 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: HarperTeen
Publish Date: April 15, 2014
Genre: YA, Paranormal
Pages: 352

Josephine Hemlock has spent the last 10 years hiding from the Curse that killed her mother. But when a mysterious man arrives at her ivy-covered, magic-fortified home, it’s clear her mother’s killer has finally come to destroy the rest of the Hemlock bloodline.

Before Jo can even think about fighting back, she must figure out who she’s fighting in the first place. The more truth Jo uncovers, the deeper she falls into witchcraft darker than she ever imagined. Trapped and running out of time, she begins to wonder if the very Curse that killed her mother is the only way to save everyone she loves.
Curses?! Witches?! You shut the front door! For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know I've been clamoring around looking for a new paranormal novel to darken (or brighten, depending how you look at it) my doorstep. House of Ivy & Sorrow sounds like it's all that and more. I'm a huge fan of dark and twisting novels that evoke powerful emotions for tangible characters in a fantasy-driven environment, and I can't wait to give this one a go. Plus, for the record, the cover art is just to die for. What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?

  2. I LOVE that cover so much I can barely focus on the blurb. I don't know if I've ever read a story about witches that captured my fancy. I can't even remember the last witch story I read. Wonderful choice, Melissa. I'll be waiting for your opinion. :)

  9. This looks super fun. On an unrelated note, my RSS feed still gives me your new posts under the .org domain but when I click on the link it takes me to the .com site. Interesting.

    1. Yeah, there are a lot of bugs with this new domain. I'm working on creating a new feedburner link. I'm not sure if it will change everyone's automatically, or if they have to resub...this whole thing has been a nightmare.
