"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine where we share upcoming releases that we just cannot wait for!
Everyone at school can’t stop talking about how hot Meredith Willis’s new next-door neighbor, Adrien, is. But Meredith can’t help but think there’s something strange about the cool, sophisticated new guy, and those sunglasses he constantly wears are the least of it. Every time he’s around, Meredith sees things—terrifying things that nobody else seems to notice. And when she dares to sneak a look into the windows of his house, she sees something in the cellar that makes her believe that Adrien might be more than just a creep—he may be an actual monster. But her sister, Heather, doesn’t share Meredith’s repulsion. Heather believes Adrien is the only guy who really understands her. In fact, she may be falling in love with him. When Adrien and Heather are cast as the leads in the school production of Romeo and Juliet, to Heather, it feels like fate. To Meredith, it feels like a bad omen. But if she tries to tear the couple apart, she could end up the last place she’d ever want to be: the cellar. Can Meredith convince her sister that she’s dating the living dead before it’s too late for both of them?
Release Date: May 2, 2011 from Graphia
What first caught my eye about this book, of course, was the cover! Isn't that shot on the cover completely creepy? Ominous if you will. Then I read the synopsis and was intrigued even more. What is in that cellar? A girl who might end up dating the living dead? Add in the reference to Romeo and Juilet and you have my undivided attention.
As a girl who is in love with horror/suspense/thriller books, this sounded like something that is right up my alley. Luckily I managed to snag it on NetGalley and so I will be reading it this weekend!
