Waiting on Wednesday: Glimmer

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

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...

When Marshall and Elyse wake up in each other’s arms with zero memory of how they got there or who they are, it’s the start of a long journey through their separate pasts and shared future.

Terrified by their amnesia, the two make a pact to work together to find the answers that could jog their missing memories. As they piece together clues, they discover they’re in the idyllic mountain resort town of Summer Falls, where everyone seems mysteriously happy, but as Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town’s perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything—not the death of Marshall’s mom, not the hidden shame in Elyse’s family, not even the day-to-day anguish of high school.

Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marsh and Elyse fall into an intense relationship...but the secrets they uncover could be the death of this growing love—and the death of everyone, and everything, they love in Summer Falls.

Hello, cover lust, my old friend! I swear, this is one of the prettiest covers I've seen in a long time, and those colours! Vintage with a touch of brightness...I love it. In all seriousness though, Glimmer sounds eerie, oddly dark and deeply fascinating. I love it when there are twists and turns and things that go bump in the night - even when everything looks perfectly normal on the surface. This one pops for me, and I can't wait to sink my teeth into it! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
