Waiting on Wednesday (23)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine =)

This Wednesday, I’m waiting on Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne, releasing February 2012.

Summary (goodreads):

Girl, Interrupted meets Beautiful Creatures in this fast-paced thriller.

When sixteen-year-old Faye arrives at Holbrook Academy, she doesn’t expect to find herself exactly where she needs to be. After years of strange waking visions and nightmares, her only comfort the bones of dead animals, Faye is afraid she’s going crazy. Fast.

But her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school and the island it sits on, like she’s come home. She’s even made her first real friends, but odd things keep happening to them. Every morning they wake on the floors of their dorm rooms with their hands stained red.

Faye knows she’s the reason, but what does it all mean? The handsome Kel tries to help her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain she can’t trust him; in fact, he may be trying to kill her—and the rest of the world too.

Rich, compelling writing will keep the pages turning in this riveting and tautly told psychological thriller.

And that cover. I LOVE it. Also, from the summary, it looks like there’s a boarding school involved. And I love books about people in boarding schools. The summary is pretty intriguing, and for once, it looks like the boy is actually a bad boy- he might be trying to kill the main character and the rest of the world. What’s not to like about this one?

What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday, peeps? Drop a link; I’ll stop by and visit!

  1. Oooh, love that cover, love the theme (I'm also a sucker for a boarding school-based story), and I also just love the word Harbinger. It's such a great word.
    What am I waiting on… uh, i don't even know. My shelves are so full already, and I'm feeling the pinch of Christmas budgeting. I'd have to say Susan Dennard's book– but I have a LONG time to wait. :0)

  8. I gotta say, I'm sick of boarding school stories, and all novels seem to have some weird element — here it's the hands stained red — all thanks to the protag. The boy's legit bad, sure… but I've already not gotten a good first impression. 😛 Sorry, Rida.
