Waiting on Wednesday (5)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted at Breaking-The-Spine.com that spotlights upcoming release that we're eagerly anticipating.  This week I'm waiting on...  




Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton 
Publication Date: April 26th, 2011




(From Goodreads):
This page-turning debut novel will entice fans who like their paranormal romances dark and disturbing. It's a natural next-read for fans of Stephanie Meyer, Carrie Jones, and Becca Fitzpatrick. But instead of mythical creatures, blood magic has everything to do with primal human desires like power, wealth, and immortality. Everywhere Silla Kennicott turns she sees blood. She can't stop thinking about her parents alleged murder-suicide. She is consumed by a book filled with spells that arrives mysteriously in the mail. The spells share one common ingredient: blood, and Silla is more than willing to cast a few. What's a little spilled blood if she can uncover the truth? And then there's Nick, the new guy at school who makes her pulse race. He has a few secrets of his own and is all too familiar with the lure of blood magic. Drawn together by a combination of fate and chemistry, Silla and Nick must find out who else in their small Missouri town knows their secret and will do anything to take the book and magic from Silla. 


'Love buried in cemeteries, horror hidden behind masks, and the whispered language of blood. I adored this book.'-- Maggie Stiefvater, author of Shiver, Lament, and Ballad 

I love the cover of this book, the contrasts of black and red and shadow and flowers... it's simply beautiful.  And the synopsis makes me think Blood Magic might be exactly my kind of book.  (Though I'm more of a Carrie Ryan than a Carrie Jones fan.)  The synopsis reminds me a little of The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting.  Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to this one.  It sounds eerie and beautiful at once.  


So, what are you waiting on this Wednesday?
