Waiting on Wednesday (#28)

Hi. As any other Wednesday it's time for Waiting on Wednesday. It's a meme created by Breaking the Spine. So here is what we have for you.

Glass' pick

Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto.

No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so--in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history--he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice.

Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel

Tanja's pick

In the darkest places, even love is deadly.

Sixteen-year-old Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself in London—working as a maid, attending church on Sundays, and trying not to think about the scandal that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumors about her father's gruesome experiments. But when she learns he is alive and continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the accusations are true.

Accompanied by her father's handsome young assistant, Montgomery, and an enigmatic castaway, Edward—both of whom she is deeply drawn to—Juliet travels to the island, only to discover the depths of her father's madness: He has experimented on animals so that they resemble, speak, and behave as humans. And worse, one of the creatures has turned violent and is killing the island's inhabitants. Torn between horror and scientific curiosity, Juliet knows she must end her father's dangerous experiments and escape her jungle prison before it's too late. Yet as the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father's genius—and madness—in her own blood.

Inspired by H. G. Wells's classic The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Madman's Daughter is a dark and breathless Gothic thriller about the secrets we'll do anything to know and the truths we'll go to any lengths to protect

  6. They are both picks for me. The first one I recently heard about and I'm pretty excited about it too. It's a different concept than what I'm used to with ghosts and a thief.

  19. I reviewed The Madman's Daughter today! I liked it, but not as much as I'd hoped I would. The love triangle ruined it a bit for me.

    Ja ću ti je rado proslijediti ako hoćeš, imam digitalnu verziju, samo mi pošalji adresu. :)

    1. Oh I'll check your review right now! :)

      Saljem ti mail ;)

  20. I'm excited about Madman's Daughter too! It got great reviews so far :) I hadn't heard of Pike's book before. I recently bought her book Wings secondhand though so if I like that one I'll definitely keep an eye out for Life After Theft.
    Thanks for stopping by yesterday :)

    1. Now I have Madman's Daughter but no time to read :// Thanks :)
