Waiting On Wednesday: The Unquiet


First of all I wanted to thank everyone for the comments last week, I was actually without my computer for that day, so when I came home to see all the page views and comments I was ecstatic!


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:


The Unquiet
Jeannine Garsee


Expected Publication Date: July 17th 2012

Sixteen-year-old Rinn Jacobs has secrets: One, she’s bipolar. Two, she killed her grandmother. 

After a suicide attempt, and now her parents' separation, Rinn and her mom move from California to the rural Ohio town where her mother grew up. Back on her medications and hoping to stay well, Rinn settles into her new home, undaunted by the fact that the previous owner hanged herself in Rinn's bedroom. At school, her classmates believe the school pool is haunted by Annaliese, a girl who drowned there. But when a reckless séance goes awry, and terrible things start happening to her new friends—yet not to her—Rinn is determined to find out why she can’t be "touched" by Annaliese...or if Annaliese even exists. 

With the help of Nate Brenner, the hunky “farmer boy” she’s rapidly falling for, Rinn devises a dangerous plan to uncover the truth. Soon reality and fantasy meld into one, till Rinn finds it nearly impossible to tell the difference. When a malevolent force threatens the lives of everyone she cares about--not to mention her own--she can't help wondering: who should she really be afraid of?


Why:
Okay I admit, I've had a chance to read this book already (although I can't post up the review yet), but I truly am waiting to buy a finished copy of this book to have and to hold and to love to pieces. This is a piece of YA Horror which I feel we have very little of as of now, so I will promote this book in and out. Cannot wait to buy!

I usually vehemently avoid horror (I leave that to my sister) because I scare pretty easily, but I do like the sound of this farm boy...

You've read it; what do you think? Will it appeal to a non-horror lover?

Happy WoW!

Sam said...

It is a ghost story through and through and the farmboy is quite yummy but I'd have to say it veers closer to horror than romance, so I'm not sure if it'd appeal to you. A lot of it is also mystery and putting things together. It certainly isn't the scariest horror book I've read.

I love ghost stories, and this one feels just like it. I asked for the copy on Netgalley, but alas, they don't give it to Europeans, apparently (or well, it said that in my email). Great pick!

Read my WOW post.
