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…
Title: Liv, Forever
Publisher: Soho Teen
Publish Date: March 11, 2014
Genre: YA, Paranormal
When Liv Bloom lands an art scholarship at Wickham Hall, it’s her ticket out of the foster system. Liv isn’t sure what to make of the school’s weird traditions and rituals, but she couldn’t be happier—especially when Malcolm Astor, fellow artist and scion of one of the school’s original families, starts falling for her. Fellow scholarship kid Gabe Nichols warns her not to get involved with a “Wicky,” but things are finally going Liv’s way, and all she wants to do is enjoy it.But Liv’s bliss is cut short when she is viciously murdered. In death, she discovers that she’s the latest victim of a dark conspiracy that spans 150 years and many, many lives. Gabe, cursed with the ability to see their ghosts, turns out to be Liv’s only link to the world of the living.Liv must rely on Gabe’s help to prove to Malcolm that she’s still present… lingering with the other spirits. Together, Liv, Gabe, and Malcolm fight to expose the terrible truth that haunts the halls of Wickham before more lives are lost.
I am all about a good paranormal novel, and there's something to be said for an especially good ghost story. Liv, Forever sounds oddly quirky (in the best possible way) mixing what promises to be a great mystery, fun and engaging characters and a novel that, at just 280 pages, should be one heck of a whirlwind. I'm really hoping to see the paranormal genre make a comeback this year, so here's hoping that this book is just one of many great paranormal novels to take us all by storm! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
