Waiting on Wednesday (February 5)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme shares the upcoming books that I'm most excited about.

The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Girls started vanishing in the fall, and now winter's come to lay a white sheet over the horror. Door County, it seems, is swallowing the young, right into its very dirt. From beneath the house on Water Street, I've watched the danger swell.

The residents know me as the noises in the house at night, the creaking on the stairs. I'm the reflection behind them in the glass, the feeling of fear in the cellar. I'm tied—it seems—to this house, this street, this town.

I'm tied to Maggie and Pauline, though I don't know why. I think it's because death is coming for one of them, or both.

All I know is that the present and the past are piling up, and I am here to dig.I am looking for the things that are buried.

From bestselling author Jodi Lynn Anderson comes a friendship story bound in snow and starlight, a haunting mystery of love, betrayal, redemption, and the moments that we leave behind.

Ohhh - sounds spooky, scary but also intriguing. I'll wait til you read it so you can tell me if I'll be able to handle it...or you know, need to sleep with the lights on while reading :)

The synopsis just gave me the creeps. Hopefully, this isn't one of the books that will give me a rough night because I really do get nightmares just by reading.

Hmm. I'm not sure about this one. I found the author's last book quite boring... So I'll be waiting to see what everyone thinks of this one. I hope you love it!

Thanks for visiting my WoW.

Okay, I haven't heard of this author before (shame on me!), but that synopsis sent chills down my spine.

Awesome WoW pick!
