Waiting On Wednesday

The Replacement by Breanna Yovanoff

Out September 16 from Razorbill


And via Goodreads, here's the summary: Mackie Doyle seems like everyone else in the perfect little town of Gentry, but he is living with a fatal secret - he is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now the creatures under the hill want him back, and Mackie must decide where he really belongs and what he really wants.

A month ago, Mackie might have told them to buzz off. But now, with a budding relationship with tough, wounded, beautiful Tate, Mackie has too much to lose. Will love finally make him worthy of the human world?

I still need to either reread or finish The Stolen Child(it's really bad-me, not the book- but I read it years ago when it first came out and I think I read it from the library and maybe didn't have time to finish it? But I might also have the wrong book because I swear I read it from a library in the town I used to live in and if it came out in 2006, then I lived here, so...) Whichever changeling book I'm thinking about got me really interested in the subject and then The Waters & the Wild got me more interested so I love the idea of this longer length (352 pages-and hopefully not 15 pt font) YA take on the topic.

And with a cover completely befitting of a blockbuster horror movie, how could it be better? (Well maybe it could be coming out sooner, or I could have a ARC but other than that, I don't know.) Oooh, there looks to be going to be a book two-that's pretty awesome (and yay passive sentence!

(it's a teaser trailer--just quotes really-and the cover's creepy image. But Maggie Stiefvater's quote's great)

    I'm going to have to check out some more of their upcoming books because the ones I've seen are great!

    I've only read a few of her books, but liked Waters & The Wild.
