Waiting on Wednesday 12/15

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

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: Tighter
Author: Adele Griffin
Release Date: May 10, 2011
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers


When 17-year-old Jamie arrives on the idyllic New England island of Little Bly to work as a summer au pair, she is stunned to learn of the horror that precedes her. Seeking the truth surrounding a young couple's tragic deaths, Jamie discovers that she herself looks shockingly like the dead girl—and that she has a disturbing ability to sense the two ghosts. Why is Jamie's connection to the couple so intense? What really happened last summer at Little Bly? As the secrets of the house wrap tighter and tighter around her, Jamie must navigate the increasingly blurred divide between the worlds of the living and the dead.

Brilliantly plotted, with startling twists, here is a thrilling page-turner from the award-winning Adele Griffin.

Taken from Goodreads.

I’m a cover whore. I’ll be the first to admit it. And while the cover of Tighter doesn’t really set me drooling (although it’s perfectly chilling and creepy), the premise certainly does! I fully believe in ghosts, and with a creepy maybe-murder mystery, too, this sounds exactly like my cup of tea. It might just be the ideal blend between mystery, thriller, and the paranormal, and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one. What do you think…and what are you waiting on this week?

  4. What a fabulous choice, this one is going on my list for sure! Sign me up for a ghost story, I love them:) The cover is very creepy but still very pretty which is nice, and I really like the font for the author's name. I'll have to try and find it because I'm a dork like that:)

  5. This book sounds so creepy! The cover definitely adds to that chilling, ghostly, creepiness. The whole doppelganger to a dead girl sounds really interesting.

  9. I'm waiting for this one too! Ghost stories scare me. From one cover whore to another, I don't find this cover particularly pretty, but it is very creepy, which suits the book well. It puts me in the mood for a chilling ghost story.
